With only 17 years old John-e started as a DJ in Macau in 1994. One year later he initiated his professional career at Club UFO, achieving, later on, a daily residence. He was the pioneer of dance music in Macau and played in Hong Kong at the famous I-Spy parties. Also in Asia, he was a resident in Club Santa Fe, located at Ko-Samui island in Tailand and also played in the famous Ko-Phagans Full Moon Parties.
John-e lived in London between 1997 and 2000 playing regularly at clubs like the 414 and George IV (both in Brixton) and in some underground festivals. With these playing experiences John-e gained very British electronic roots: playing various musical styles such as break-beat, minimal techno, progressive or deep-house, mixing it all up in his own personal style.
He moves to Portugal in 2000 continuing his activity as a DJ and beginning his career as a producer. In 2002, already with more consistency, he begins to play live with a laptop, a 16 channels mixer, a synthesizer and FXs as part of the projects ZOOM and, later on, Stereo Addiction together with his friend/colleague DJ Gustavo.
