I always liked electronic music, house and dance. I discovered at 20 years of age that mixing was something I really liked, however, I have set it aside to focus on a computer-based career..

Not long ago I decided to return to the passion I feel for the world of music and DJs, I bought a table Pioneer XDJ-RX2 with some Pioneer S-DJ50X sound monitors..

If you like electronic music, house, high tech minimal or just want to discover the style of music that i mix, i invite you to listen to my recorded sessions, some improvised and others not so much: MIXCLOUD
