Nuno dos Santos
It all seriously started in the summer of 1993, when he and his friends organized some underground house parties in his home town of Utrecht, better known as "Gekkenhuis''. It was at these parties that Dos Santos got his first serious DJ experience. In the year 2000, Nuno Dos Santos was chosen to be a participant at the RedBull Music Academy in Dublin. Since then his popularity has only increased and things started rolling. His hard work paid off in October 2005, when Dos Santos was voted Talent of the Year by a panel of 50 top names from the Dutch dance scene.
On the eve of the Amsterdam Dance Event, he received the Release (formerly the Dutch DJ) Dance Award in the Amsterdam Escape. He was named 'a worthy successor to Joris Voorn, who won the award in the previous two years'. In the year 2004 he graduated from the Art Academy doing Interaction Design. In his graduation project he combined his love for both design and music, constructing a sound engine on the internet in which sound & images that influenced each other. The sounds were done exclusively by Dennis Desantis from Kanzleramt Records. Nowadays he appears in clubs around Holland and plays in cities such as Tel Aviv, Warsaw, Cannes & Rome, not forgetting his beloved home town Utrecht, where he is a regular at Tivoli, Winkel van Sinkel, Poema and many other places.
Thanks to a demo sent to the Electronation organisation, Dos Santos landed with an invitation to spin at Electronation-nights at Tivoli, Melkweg and other related parties. Furthermore he is a resident at the Full Spectrum parties that take place in several cities in Holland. This residency gave him the opportunity to dj with James Holden, Michael Mayer and many more. In 2006 Dos Santos plays at almost every major event: Lowlands, Extrema Outdoor, Dance Valley, Awakenings, 5 Days Off, Mysteryland and Sensation. Recently, Dos Santos has joined forces with T.J.
