Serbian-born musician/composer SUBA was about to become one of Brazil's most prominent producers when he tragically passed away in November 1999, just a few days after the release of his now-legendary album São Paulo Confessions (probably the most inspired album of electronic music to have come out of Brazil), and shortly before the completion of Bebel Gilberto's Tanto Tempo album, which was graced by his outstanding production work.

After working in a variety of music styles in former Yugoslavia, first in his native city of Novi Sad and then in Belgrade, Suba (born Mitar Subotic) spent time in Paris, working at IRCAM and composing scores for ballet and theatre. In the wake of a trip to Brazil aimed at conducting a study on the music of the Brazilian Indians, Suba fell in love with São Paulo and decided to stay there. His intimacy with machines & programming, his composing and arranging skills and his feel for live beats and vocals quickly made him a powerful player on the new Brazilian scene, producing records for the likes of Marina Lima, Arnaldo Antunes, Mestre Ambrosio, and finally Bebel Gilberto’s best-selling album “Tanto Tempo”.
