Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil and based in New York, DJ and producer Kassiano has been for some years now a pioneer of brazilian dance music.
As one of the first DJ's to introduce Brazilian Baile Funk music to the international scene by putting out mixes, bootlegs, and original productions through his own label Nossa (since 2005), he innovated new ways of mixing the rough Rio favela sounds with other kinds of dance music from around the world.
Kassiano's early remixes, bootlegs, and productions have also earned him praise and features from magazines such as Bpm, Urb, Fader, and Xlr8r and are still dancefloor staples for many DJ's worldwide.
Most recently Kassiano has expanded his production horizons and style to work with major label artists like Lil Jon (produced the single "Machuka" from the recent album Crunk Rock for which an official video was shot in Rio) and Pitbull.
Currently he is busy working on material for a solo release, remixing for other artsts/DJ's, as well as working on music for label artists.
