A versatile DJ since 1994. his sets can go from sleazy italo to house and hi-NRG, obscure dub and funk, afrobeat or psych rock, depending on the venue - he holds down regular slots at club parties (Lux Frágil, Musicbox, Conga Club) and festivals (Milhões de Festa) alongside a weekly radio show, SALÓN FUZZ, on Radio Futura.

At Lounge, he maintains an always forward-thinking programme of bands, live acts and DJs, as well as being co-organiser of the monthly camp italo-disco fest A Night Out With The Hard Ones, the queer-punk party Born in Flames and co-owner of the label Table Sports. We're delighted to welcome him to play at Spiritland.
