Becoming.Intense was created in 2005 by Diogo C., with the purpose of constructing an open creative space where the beats and atmospheres are combined to reach a level beyond their original sources. It is sharp, clear and locks on target, with a unique style of composition that combines remarkable trance musical structures with odd elements from electronic music producers from the past and present.
After sending demos all around, the project's world premier was on Avatar Records "Terminal 2" compilation, followed up by the releases at "Goagadar Magazine vol.0-november2006" and "Nightvision" (2007), all done by the traditional house of Avatar, also granting the project a record deal and a prominent position on the label's cast. "Nightvision" also got the project its debut on the top charts, as the compilation managed to stay many weeks at Saikosound's top-sellers. Shortly after, the project got to the top-charts once again with its participation on "Neverending Story 3".
The releases mentioned above can easily trace a upforward line of achievements and expansion of musical possibilities and ambitions. From the Goa melo-inspired sounds of Terminal 2 to the atmospheric soil of Nightvision and Neverending Story 3, the project's sound shows a constant incorporation of ideas and musical textures. These releases placed the project among some of the scene's best artists, releasing among names such as The Nommos, Ocelot, Para Halu, Psychoz, Digitalist and many others.
In 2007, Becoming.Intense welcomes the arrival of Carlos Lessa, a high-skilled producer and talented song-writter known for his works at Magma Ohm, Ultramind and Dopped. Diogo C. also joined in for some work at Magma Ohm.
The combined efforts of Diogo and Carlos took both projects toward a whole new breed of sound, reaching a higher level of music creation and possibilities, crafting full power soundtracks for the modern derangement.
Now it's album-preparation time. And it's all being carefully prepared and arranged. Stay tuned for further details on this one and for more intense music!
