Lucio Monteiro biography
Lucio Monteiro was born February 1st, in 1964 in Mozambique. At the age of merely 13 years he made his first steps dj'ing at private party's and small clubs. Ever since he has continued his ''dj thing'' with the objective of featuring quality sounds, constantly updating his work, refining his technical skills and offering musical diversity and quality.
At the end of the 80's (1989), he climaxed as resident dj of the legendary “Alcantara-Mar” club (Lisbon).
His international career started in 1990 with his first trip to Brazil, years later (1999) he decided to settle down, after having shut down his own club - called “Deep Club” - in Cascais (PT). At the end of his Club, he started the project “Lisboa Vice” together with dj Bruno Correia.
Between 1999 and 2001, they presented their work in some of the major clubs in Sao Paulo, Florianopolis, and Campo Grande (Brazil); such as: “D-Edge (Matriz), A Loca, The Bar, Lov.e, Jazzy, Sutra, Stereo, Cafe Cancun, U-Turn, BCBG, Manga Rosa, Base Diesel, Bantu, America, and THC, just to name a few.

Lucio Monteiro also performs regularly on Funchal(Madeira Island) in clubs like “Marginal” and the “Cafe do Teatro” and he rocked the “Celeiro” club on the Azorean Island of Terceira.
When it comes to the universe of house music, he is very sweeping (just like house music itself is).
His sets are consistent, with powerfull bass lines, without ever loosing the rhythm, including elements of all genres of house music. This could go from ambient lounge to tech house, passing the finest deep house, as well as the classic house sound, and a very unique style of jackin’ house, similar to Derrick Carter and Joey Youngman, with a groove, rhythm, and move (coming from the funk) that will definitely make you dance!
His performance in tech house it's also really powerfull and consistent with ''fat flavors'' and strong groovie tunes !
Parties organised from 2001 to 2004: Candy House I and II (Praia de Carcavelos) Flores I (Piscinas Oceanicas de Oeiras) Mestres na Obra I (Coconuts - Cascais) presentation of the FutureFunkLx Project (Alcantara-Club in Lisbon)
