Sérgio Vieira AKA Djadja, born in ’85 in the city of Lisbon, Portugal, had his first contact with dance music in the middle of the 90’s, when he first heard the commercial dance music that was going on at the time. But it was with the start of the new millennium that Djadja chose Techno as the style that he most love and identify himself.
When he was 15 he decided to take more seriously his love for Techno and just by himself, without any given knowledge or help, he took the first steps as a DJ and started to discover the innumerable possibilities that this art would have to offer him.
It was at Musicália’s 2003 edition (light, image and sound exposition) that Djadja had the chance to leave the room and play for a crowd. His effort paid off, having reached the 2nd place at the DJ’s competition.
Later in 2005, Djadja won the DJ’s competition “I want to go to Techno Inside” promoted by Techno Inside, the biggest Techno events promoter in Portugal.
At the year of 2011 the Techno world saw the launching of Djadja’s first EP with the invitation of the italian label Kontrol Records (Rome), The Blast EP. With this achievement Djadja is fully commited to continue the studio work and keep evolving as music producer.
His style is not very easy to define, therefore each DJ set will be different of the last one, adjusting himself and his music according to the mood and energy of the crowd, just like music production process, where the various genres of Electronic Music are explored. Influences from artists like Joey Beltram, The Advent, Jeff Mills, Plastikman, Eric Sneo, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, A.Paul, Zé Mig.L are always present… characterizing his DJ sets as powerfull and energetic, always with lots of rhythm.
