Lucha Libre expands and opens operation in Berlin
The production company will have international presence focusing on 360, 3D and binaural audio projects.
Lucha Libre Audio opens a studio in Berlin, under the command of Billy Mello, “Maestro Billy”, and will focus on 360, 3D and binaural audio projects, growing demands thanks to the popularization of virtual reality content, augmented and others immersive audiovisual experiences.
Billy, for 15 years, was the DJ of “Caldeirão do Huck”, and been living for four years in Germany, dedicated especially to various audio projects. With a specialization in Audio for Video Games and VR by the Berklee College of Music, he will perform in Berlin alongside Mafê Bastos, who will be executive producer of Lucha Berlin.
“Until recently, these sound technologies were expensive and difficult to access. With the advancement of technology, it is possible to develop extremely creative and well-produced projects within the reality of Brazilian budgets“says Billy.
Lucha’s international space is at Riverside Studios, which is a place of work for DJs and producers like Booka Shade, Moguai and VooDoo.
“With the studio in Berlin and the arrival of Billy in the team, Lucha reinforces its commitment to have more and more partners of excellence and to be connected with the main innovations of the industry“, emphasizes Paulinho Corcione, partner and producer of Lucha Libre.
In addition to the Berlin office, which will also serve as a hub for traditional track and mix productions, Lucha Libre is present in Los Angeles through its partnership with Drac Studios, led by Matt Sorum, drummer for Guns’n’Roses and Velvet Revolver . Lucha has won 11 Lions at Cannes Lions 2018, becoming the most awarded Brazilian in the audio industry.
