“Electronic music is my passion since I noticed the first synthesizer sound even when I was a teenager. After that, I got involved increasingly. I tried several roles in the electronic music business. I made hundreds of parties, booked artists, ran labels, wrote articles, but to make music is definitely my favorite activity and I hope one day I can live only by this”.

For almost two decades, João Komka has been acting in the electronic music industry, especially in Brasília, his hometown. DJ, music producer, label owner, and event producer, he lived the most diverse perspectives of this universe with a career guided by independent initiatives.

Komka is one of the creators of 5uinto, a brand that has gained notoriety in its more than 500 editions. As the club’s artistic director and curator, he brought to the line-ups over 450 artists, among them, names like Solomun, Miss Kittin, Stephan Bodzin, Anthony Rother, Boris Brejcha, Dubfire, Ellen Allien, Michael Mayer, Steve Bug, Oliver Huntemann, DJ Hell, work that gave a new form to the local scene, putting Brasilia on the route of major international tours.

His songs have been acclaimed by artists such as Laurent Garnier, Boys Noize, and Zombie Nation. Highlights for “Take Control” from Come and Hell (his side project with Mariana Perrelli), chosen by Gui Boratto to compose his third album “Abaporu”, released by Kompakt, featuring remixes by Danny Daze and Weval. The track achieved several charts of sells and plays. Komka also dedicated himself for years to Crunchy Music, his former record label.

Playing for more than half of his life as a DJ and crossing through the several periods of the electronic culture and its respective changes, time brought him experience. Started with the vinyls, got excited with the beginning of Beatport, joined the Traktor technology, got hit by the minimal wave and even didn’t support the “hype house” moment. Respecting the diversity of the market, today he’s sure about the music he believes in.

In a fusion of influences that ranges from disco to industrial, the essence of the term dance music prevails. His sets usually roam through styles, exploring its nuances, especially electro, techno and house, valuing melodies, acid sounds, and consistent grooves.

Embracing a new phase, in 2019 Komka decides it’s time to unlink himself from 5uinto and dives into the music production and his artistic career, beginning with the creation of a new label, I/U Music, that will contemplate some of his new tracks
