Karetus are Carlos Silva and André Reis. Formed in 2010, the Portuguese duo gained notoriety for their remixes of Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s “Young, Wild and Free” and Drake and DJ Khaled’s “I’m on One”.
They then went on to release their highly anticipated Entrudo and Rave On EP’s, both to critical acclaim and with tracks hitting the charts on Beatport. The EPs were shortly followed by an incredibly ambitious remix of Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” that has reached over 4 million plays on SoundCloud alone.
2015 marked the release of Piñata, the duo's latest album. In the lead up to Piñata, Karetus released one track and video clip per week, which very much helped to build the anticipation to the release of the album. The album itself was extremely well received, having gained support for the likes of Krewella, Oliver Heldens, Don Diablo, Carnage, Ookay and more.
With billions of plays on YouTube and multiple hundreds and thousands of followers on social media is proof that the sky really is the limit for this exciting duo.
Now with an incredible live show that is so much more than a DJ set, they use videos played through CDJ’s which allows them to not only scratch the music but the video too alongside using cue points for the images for an immensely immersive show. By using specialist software and custom made videos for each track, means that no song is ever the same with the band creating incredibly immersive environments for each and every song.
2015 and 2016 both mark incredible benchmarks for the growth and success of Karetus, on a global scale. With over 150 shows under their belt, the band have graced some of the biggest stages that the world has to offer including but not limited to Bassland in Russia where they were considered upcoming artists of the year as well as Tomorrowland Brasil where the group were personally invited by Diego Miranda and premiered their track “Olé”.
With an incredible number of shows under their belt, a unique sound, style and live element and a rapidly increasing fan base, we are confident you’ll be seeing a lot more Karetus very soon.
