Urbandawn’s influences are varied, with his father being a crucial figure in cementing his bond with Brazilian music and culture.

Urbandawn’s childhood home was filled with musicians like Tim Maia and Clara Nunes, but when his mother had control of the hi-fi, it would be submerged in a sea of classical music by Mozart, Bach, and Mingus.

His older brother set him on a new musical path in the style of rock and metal, with portions heavy Scandinavian acts like At The Gates melding into a rich and diversified sonic tapestry in Urbandwan’s works.

Urbandawn’s songs, as well as those published under the name “Wrechiski” [Anjuna Beats / Armada Music] may be heard on dancefloors all around the world.

He is currently working on numerous projects with cool brands and organizations like Monster, Audi, Nestlé, Red Bull, and Microsoft in order to create thrilling content. His sound design had high energy and a feel-good vibe, which complemented the themes of several sporting companies. His compositions have been used by Nike SB, ESPN, and BT Sports for the song Favela featuring Inja.
