As many of you are aware I collect vinyl records. It’s a passion inherited from my father and some old friends of mine who are tightly connected to the music scene – not only the dance/electronic thing, but also instrumental, orchestral and romantic music (romantic in the truly sense of the genre). Anyway, many of them are music producers, live performers or even DJs, so it became natural that I’d soon or later be involved in one of these activities.
That’s how I started.. playing some records at my homies private parties, just for the fun of it. Rapidly, I had the chance to play in a local bar and soon enough I’d be playing in some nice places out of my home city, Aveiro.
But, even though music is a great passion – I’m currently developing my audio production skills -, I already have a job (another passion of mine. oh boy, am I passionate or what?!), so I won’t try to make a living out of this, but instead I’ll keep playing here and there, now and then, mostly with friends.
And that’s why I’m writing this post, to present you with a project between me and a couple of friends, Diogo Lobo and Pedro Menício , named Urban Audio Society. Three music lovers who, together, break the boundaries of the dance scene and prove to everyone that the mind also dances and the body also thinks.
If you like lightweight, sweet and joyful music, please feel invited to listen to our first DJ set. Feedback is highly expected. Enjoy!
