Over time his love and involvement for quality house music has grown exponentially. In the last couple of years he decided to see the other side of house music, venturing in to music production, and immediately realized that being able to mix and create new sounds with the music he had grown to love, and then share that music with others fulfilled a soul-dream.
Now residing in his childhood hometown Maputo in Mozambique he beleives there is space , energy ,and a positive vibe for quality house music with soul in it and hopes to dive in to the scene and share his passion with everyone.
