From a very young age he was in constant contact with Music, his passion for music was mostly influenced by his father, a pianist of the orchestra in the Armed Forces, and his mother that collected vinyl discs. These reasons were the beginning of his first investigations on music. Throughout the years this musical knowlegde made him a great and excellent artist. He discovers for the first time the electronic music by the hand of great world-wide artists such as: Technotronic, New Order, Yazoo, among others and obtains his first vinyl plates SL 1100, which they only had a rotatory pair of pitch (33 & 45), and they where used for playing music. His carreer as a Dj started at the age of 16 perfoming in different underground electronic parties in Uruguay. After several years of constant investigation and evolution, this artist begins to introduce himself in the world of electronic music. This is when he decides to buy his first trays SL 1200 and inmediately begins to take his first official steps like a professional dj. After perfoming several years in electronic private parties, this artist begins to have his first experiences in main clubs in Montevideo such as Milenio, W. Lounge.
