Gustavo Sandoval aka TAVO was born in Colombia in 1977 where he started his career at the beginning of the 90’s. Passing through the usual steps of classical DJs, he mastered the mixing techniques of the time by playing on garage parties and later on the top clubs of his city.
In 1996 he performed a DJ Set on a local radio station for over 127 hours, earning a Guinness world record and some great deal of local and international attention for the first time. Due to his great skills, he was offered a tour outside of his native country, which would eventually give him the experience and guts to make a permanent move from his land. From then on, his destiny has brought him to several countries, allowing him to hold residencies in some great clubs specially in North America, Europe and Asia.
Tavo is today recognized as a unique performer, his flawless and original mixing techniques complemented by a clear understanding of the dance floor and the people that feels and dance with his energetic musical beats, carefully selected for every performance, allow people to understand that music has a message and he knows how to deliver it.
His unique uplifting sound is his own trademark, a personal vision of house music that has positively contributed to the worldwide scene of electronic music and the image of the Colombian artist and DJ over the planet.
His recording capability has giving him as well the opportunity to take his love for music even further and in the form of original productions or remixes either solo or with some of the greatest producers out there, his Latino influence and natural groove is available now in some of the greatest labels of dance music such as Suka, Mjuzziek, Super Market, Gods of House, Recovery Records, Let’s Play Music, Kult Records, Vamos Music, 76 Recordings and his own label, 3Star Deluxe.
