Vintage Culture makes yet another leap up the poll this year, following a jump of 23 places in 2017. This time he’s up another 12 and has finally broken into the coveted top 20. Well, what do you expect after the year he’s had? “I was able to bring my music to amazing places such as Rock In Rio Lisboa (Portugal), Ushuaia (Ibiza), Mysteryland Festival (Amsterdam), EDC (Orlando), Lollapalooza (São Paulo),” the Brazilian tells DJ Mag. Back in his homeland, VC’s also supported Martin Garrix for four dates of his tour. And his own Só Track Boa label parties haven’t been doing too bad either, hosting events in World Cup arenas around the nation — some reaching up to 20,000 attendees!
VC adds that he’s also enjoyed working on “lots of new music and collabs, meeting Adam K — a new friend and great studio partner from Canada — and shooting nice and inspiring video clips.” Sounds like a pretty great year to us, and now his Top 100 DJs placement can be the icing on the cake!
