With a Plastic Arts background and a degree in Design, its been a while since Stereossauro traded the pencils from the University of Arts and Design by the syntethiser and the turntables. His live performances are characterized by dense and textured sonorities, with no limits to creativity and without fear of escaping the safety of established formulas, where his eclectic musical taste stands out. The sampling, where he crosses past with future along with the lab experimentation of instruments imprints his musical identity.
Solo, he takes the stage provided with a turntable and a sampler, handled in a unique and very personal way, a format that he likes to name “Two Hands Band”.
Internationally he became scratch world champion with his crew “The Beatbombers” along with Dj Ride in the show category, and twice vice world champion.
Razat is the stage name of Baltazar Gallego’s bass music project. Native from Lisbon, since 2009 is showing us his young, twisted, agressive and free mind side in project Razat. With countless musical references, ranging from classic music to psy-trance or funk music to drum‘n’bass, Razat gather all of these elemments to create a groundbreaking, complex and explosive sound. The productions signed by Razat are an effervescent blend of dubstep/drumstep/ glitch-hop /breaks/drum ‘n’ bass/ crossbreed/ electro/nu-rave which stumble into psycadelic and trembles with bassline power.
Razat’s power is better felt live. In his DjSet/LiveAct he plays a crazy mix of bass music and mashin’ it up with other music genres breaking with all rules and all lines pre established giving into his public a Unpredictability and versatile show. A brain twisting trip through hard-bass/punchy-drums/party music being a dynamic dance-floor booster. Refreshing approach, new breed, Razat never fails to deliver unique, highpowered and thrilling sets.

Currently Zeder is one of the most influent artists within Dubstep/Drum’n’Bass portuguese Scene.
Born in Lisbon, soon this Producer/DJ fell in love with music and went from playing guitar to production of Hip Hop, Downtempo and other alternative styles.
His love for Drum’n’Bass arrived shortly after, starting to invest in production and djing of this kind. Quickly gained recognition in the area for his effort and dedication, and collaborated on various tracks, with C-Netik, presently an icon in the heavier strand of Drum’n’Bass.
Dubstep was a natural evolution on his career. His experiences on this field were quickly highlighted by his colleagues, motivating him to continue. The lanch of the label “Kali Records”, owned by his collagues Drop Top, was also a strong reason to keep on going. His debut Ep “The Net” released in 2009 were a pioneer of its kind in Portugal.
Associated with promoter / collective B-Side, consolidated a prominent place, with regular attendance at major events, alongside headliners like Pendulum, Steve Aoki, Borgore, Doctor P, Noisia, Sub Focus, Camo & Krooked, Dirtyphonics, Cookie Monsta, Emalkay, FuntCase, Roksonix among others.

In March, 2013 Médio won the Drum&Bass Arena & Pioneer european DJ competition with his savage three decks mix.
At the age of 15, João started his musical formation. He studied music and learned to play the guitar at a Jazz school. Soon he discovered music was his great passion and decided to dedicate his life to its understanding.
In 2006 he joined the Trip Hop band Imkino as a guitarist and co-composer, recording several studio tracks.
Later that year he started a college degree in Sound, where he studied music production. The electronic music culture was getting stronger and João’s experience with music went beyond the classes he took. Between the Drum and Bass, Electro, Dubstep and Psy-Trance parties and the jam sessions he had with artists like Razat and DJ Ride, he started to receive and share knowledge in sound design and music production. It was that cultural boom that put João in the path to become Médio. In his last year in college, influenced by the complexity of sound creation, he started to explore Drum and Bass production and had his first contact with live act performances.
In 2009, after graduating from college, João created and started teaching an Electronic Music Production degree at the Jazz school where he studied.
Inspired by the infinite possibilities that electronic music offers, Médio developed a creative identity that is as wide as the genres he explores. Drum and Bass, Maximal Electro and Dubstep are just some of the ways he found to exteriorize what he has learned along the way.
Knooper is the electronic alter-ego of Rúben Pacheco.
At age 5 his first challenge was the National Conservatory School of Music where he revealed and developped
outstanding piano technique and ability on drums.
From that day forward the thirst for music led him to undergo several projects as Drosera (progressive metal),
Project (experimental) and Innerview (covers). But it wasn’t enough…
So, in the mid 2011, beneath filthy wobbles and deep-rooted in distorted melodic basses something fresh new
emerged from that deep dark hole…
and Knooper was born!!!!
