Rafael started as a DJ in 2008 usualy playing psychedelic and progressive music in some parties in his Brazil native country. Some time later, when he realised that music was vital for him, he started to study musical theory, instruments, composition techniques and of course synthese/ electronic music production.
In 2014 he created his project of authorial tracks called “Forest Weed”.
Initially he did not worry about genres, he was just putting feelings and ideas in electronic musical words. Most parts of his material had psychedelic touches as essence. The naturality in his production is still the main parameter of the project and one aspect that makes his works sound very authentique.
In the past few years he has been more and more immersed with progressive feelings that are mixed with his spontaneous arrangements and psychedelic soundscapes.
Forest Weed has been releasing an impressive quantity of emotional tracks with labels like Abstract Space Records, Absurd State, Atec, Bullfinch, Cloudy Moon Records, Deepersense Music, DNA Digital Records, Digital Sunrise, Estribo Recordings, Hungry Koala Records, Mystic Carousel Records, Pineapple Digital, Sonika Music, Spliced Vinyl Recordings, Zephyr Music, 4allrecords , Under Noize and some more.
