Hard J was born in Portugal in the town of Matosinhos in 1986.
With 15 years of age he went to his first techno party where he discovered that that was the style of music of his life.
Since that party he started gaining interest in trying to make his first mixes, fist with software and later with "Turntables", where he was increasingly trying to improve his technique.
Years later he heard his first sets of Hardtechno and then quickly realized that this was the style of music he are looking for and, so came the great passion for hardtechno.
In 2009, he decided to produce his own music and began to make some attempts until he managed to hold his first music "Hard- Tribal". At the end of 2009 "Team 2M Jr." extended an invitation to participate in a project of the label "Fiume Beat" which included tracks from other major producers like "Pet Duo" "Team 2m Jr." "Acid Flux" and more...
