Dirty Flav, is a former member of the duo THE VINTAGE formed by Flavio and Bruno who have had their music charted on all four corners of the globe direct from their studio in the south of Lausanne.
It took little more then a year for these two artists to break their silence and hit the major music scene thanks primarily to the assistance of LA producer, Eddie Amador with his new label MOCHICOPRIMO! Eddie signed and remixed The Vintage’s track “To Believe” which made a large impact and stayed in the top 10 best sellers chart at the world’s 1 online retailer, Beatport for many weeks. Like all good historical beginnings, a great friendship was formed between The Vintage and Eddie Amador, with the duo doing several other remix and originals for Eddie’s label. During this time The Vintage also released “Wake Up America” on Sondos, a sub label for Subliminal Records run by dj star Erick Morillo which was distributed globally and took only 3 weeks to sell out.
They aligned releases in the French label Mañana Records, for George Morel’s US label Groove On Records, Joe T Vanelli Italian label DreamBeat records , spanish label Tusom, swiss label Helvetica Noir, bresilien label Eletrodomesticos records, Portuguese label Magna records, and Australian label, Bellarine Records.
