“I create music to inspire movement. A beat will starts in my head, and will drive me crazy until I sit down and take the time to bring it to existence. Through wires it goes, and is able to materialize thorough the speakers. But it is not until I get to watch people embody the music through dance that it feels like the cycle of a song has been completed. I want to create music that will take you to the stars and back while helping you both lose yourself and find yourself a in the rhythmic layers.” - Vitamindevo
Vitamindevo’s genre of choice is tech house, but he loves mixing it with spacey breaks, dub-tech, deep house, and acid elements. Music has always been his preferred form of therapy since he was young enough to hear and would spend hours banging on the drums in his parent’s basement studio jamming to the sounds of 60's and 70's rock. Thankfully he never lost his obsession with music. In college he was first introduced to the electronic music scene in Florida, then after moving to Brooklyn in 2004, he began to be influenced by the industrial synchronicity, depth and scale of New York.
Vitamindevo has now been a part of the scene for over fourteen years, including ten spent DJing and producing, and he has no desire to slow down now! He has performed up and down the East and West Coasts, at clubs, warehouses, forests and deserts in NYC, SF, LA, Northern California, and Nevada as both Vitamindevo and his old duo 3l3tronic. He has collaborated with Truth Now, Bianca Dino, Nico Tower, Stillwell, etc. His newest side project is Gydyr, a bass-focused alter-ego, that he has performed as at Warfield opening for Knife Party, as well as being an Insomniac Discovery Project winner.

You don’t go to a Vitamindevo show to sit, you go to see the speakers explode with energy on a sweat-drenched dance floor where time seems to stand still. His shows are a multi-dimensional experience brought to life with him dancing with you while weaving layers of rich digital components. The only thing better than getting lost in his music is looking up and seeing him dancing right along with you.
“I envision myself as the captain of a musical ship and my compass is the rhythm that I use to navigate the heart and soul of our sonic languages.” - Vitamindevo
