Discovered by Nicky Romero ; About LAMAS
Meet Raphael. Also known as LAMAS. Is lately Discovered on VIRPP By Nicky Romero. He’s been a DJ for over 10 years and was keen on making it in the music industry. In the past 10 years, he had the opportunity to perform at several clubs and important events in his hometown: Juiz de Fora, Brasil. He is a producer that made the decision to not be labeled to a certain sound or specific genre. He always brings melodic compositions in his music that are derived from the house or techno scene. In every tune that he makes, he puts in the sounds that he feels at that moment. He started when the pandemic started and he wanted to do more with the business. It gave him good vibes. his interest in music was always present, so he decided to make sure that he’ll blow up.
The Creative proces to release music on top labels:
We asked LAMAS how he starts his creative process in order to produce a tune that is Discovered by Nicky Romero (Protocol Recordings). LAMAS replied:
“My creative process, most of the time, comes after listening to a lot of music. Ideas come to me from existing tracks and from the most varied artists and styles. From there, I open the DAW and start composing something. I really like to start with the melody, create melodic ideas and from them to extend everything, then I add the kick, I compose an initial idea of the bass line and then it’s time to test what works and what doesn’t haha”
When LAMAS perfected his craft, he came in touch with VIRPP throughout Instagram. He was curious, visited the website and saw an interesting wide range of having the opportunity to get his demo heard by major labels. So then he asked himself: Why do i not join VIRPP? And so he did.

LAMAS then went on our platform and admired certain big names in the world that are active in the electronic scene. One of his big admirations is Nicky Romero. He had a big appreciation for Nicky.
