Brazilian duo Grupo Controle Digital, Billy Jaguar and Gel Valiery regularly performed in various groups in São Paulo throughout the 80s and 90s, but after Gel passed away, Grupo Controle Digital was no more. The band faded into obscurity and Jaguar became a priest, working with gospel music.

 

The album “A Festa É Nossa, first released in 1988 enjoys lo-fi synths and cruising bass lines in its compositions that are influenced by the group’s Brazilian contemporaries at the time such as Tim Maia, Cláudio Zoli, Secos E Molhados, and rock outfit Made In Brazil.
