In 2016, FTampa made history by becoming the first Brazilian to play in the main stage of Tomorrowland Belgium. He was also invited by Britney Spears to remix her song “Make Me” in 2016.
Raised by a single mother and orphaned at the age of six , he was adopted by his grandparents and aunt and lived by modest means. Just before his death, Felipe’s grandfather gifted him a piano, which ended up changing his life.
He started his music career in a rock band which he gave his life to, with the initial success but eventual failure of the band he swore that he would never pursue music again. In 2011 his path shifted when he met Electronic music. He found new inspiration in the sounds he heard and subsequently setup a recording studio in his home and in between those 4 walls the project FTampa was born.
