Lucio Morais is a Sao Paulo, Brazil-based DJ and producer, best known as one half of the renowned electronic music duo Database. And with Database, Morais has worked with Fatboy Slim, Dragonette, Mark Ronson, French Horn Rebellion and others, and has released a number of singles through French electronic music label Kitsune that have dominated the charts. 

Morais’ solo die project, Ascio is devoted to a sound that effortlessly blurs the lines between house, pop, nu disco and electronic dance music – and his first single under the Ascio moniker “Heart Hides” feat. San Mei is comprised of layers of cascading,  bubbling and undulating synths and a sinuous bass line paired with San Mei’s dreamy vocals which create a song that possess both a coquettish and irresistible sensuality and an ethereal, smokey nature that sounds as though it owes a debt to Giorgio Moroder
