About

Peralta, of anglo-portuguese descent, started at the age of 13 as an event organizer and DJ, playing mainly House and Acid-House mixed with original beats made on a Commodore Amiga using Tracker.
He later moved to the UK to train as an Audio Engineer at the Peoples College of Nottingham, always developing sampled soundscapes and trippy fx, just for fun.

Upon returning to Portugal and to the Rumos professional school to train as a systems engineer, he joined forces with Fred (Suria) and João (Audialize) and started steering towards the local Trip-Tech and Psytrance scene that was starting out at the time.

With extensive knowledge of outboard gear, the initial investment and practice with analogue synths paid off and the Psytrance project Mind Manipulation was born. The live-act soon followed and gathered momentum from 2000 to 2003, having released a few original tracks and collabs, on both local and international labels.
As the Open-Air party scene started to fade, he worked as a freelance audio engineer for Theatre and Video Production companies in Lisbon and was later called upon to make 2 Drum n Bass remixes of sucessfull hip-hop tunes. Both tracks were released on CD and Vinyl.

In 2005, the return to the UK and his eventual settlement in Bristol help with the initial development of his unique style of Drum n Bass, Dubstep and Breaks, complemented with mind blowing synths, sweeping soundscapes and heavy basslines.

Every track is a voyage into the realms of the unknown, with heavy improvisation and a feerless approach to structure.
