Tiago started his career 15 years ago, as manager and music director in the best clubs in Porto, always promoting and pushing the upcoming fresh, national and international, artists. He jumped to the booth around the year 1998, but took it more seriously like 5 or 6 years ago, when begun to be requested for the best portuguese clubs.
Next step, and the most important one, was the professional connection with his "old" friend Alain Ho, also known as Dj Yellow, when the idea of working together as Mindz Kontrol Ultra came up. This fusion with his number one reference in music, helped push things in a deeper, minimal and stripped back classic house direction in a proper clubbing way.
Composite Records was next! Alain and Tiago's young label, Composite Records, became the platform of their work and where you can find the fusion of the experience and knowledge like King Britt, Dubfire or Djul'z, with the fresh blood, full of healthy irreverence as Till Von Sein, Varoslav, James Teej, Daniel Kyo, Simon Garcia or Alex James. After the first release at Dieb Audio, Tiago released (also as MKU) his next 3 Eps at Composite, but soon capture the attention of other labels like Ovum Recordings, Freerange Records and Plastic City (album). In that hot summer of 2009, he got "Fubu" from his 4 released, featured at the 10 Years Cocoon Ibiza compilation, for Cocoon Records, by invitation of Locodice, "Sleep with me" (Josh Wink Edit) at Space Ibiza Compilation for Cr2 Records and "Space soon to vanish" for Global Underground, just to name a few.
End of September 2010 is time to receive Tiago's solo debut Ep "Face" (Composite), with remixes of My Favorite Robot and Michael J Collins, greatly supported by James Teej, Manik, Art Department, Phonogenic, Till Von Sein, Roland Appel, Roberto Rodriguez and many others…
Tiago's second solo work called "Lovefool", alongside Tracey K with remixes of Alain Ho and Jay Shepheard comes around June, ready to be one of summer anthems, and reaching 40th position at Beatport's Deep House 100 Chart. A couple of months later and his last release, "Special", a track build with Dj Yellow and vocals by Tracey K, featured at Composite's VA Compilation, got huge support around the world as Maya Jane Coles, Steve Bug, Cera Alba, Guy J, Chez Damier among many others and reaching top 13 of Beatport's Deep House Chart. More to come soon.
So stay tuned guys!
