Vitor (Dreamlab, Pure Perception Records, Pangea) – NYC
My name is Vítor, and I’m originally from Porto, Portugal. Music and travelling are my biggest passions. When I play, I think about nothing else, it is who I am. I love to drop beats, create a story within a set, watch people dancing, and above all… connect with the dancefloor and live in the moment.
When we dance we let go, we meditate, we travel to distant places, we enjoy ourselves, we simply are. Dance parties are intense and magical, and I love both djing as well as dancing. So the meeting point is on the dancefloor.
I love playing different styles of electronic music: Techno, Tech House, Progressive House, Progressive Trance, and several styles of Psychedelic Trance. But Psychedelic Trance is my favorite of all, for its intensity, message, and culture associated.
I’ve been a party goer since I was about 16 years old. Quickly fell in love with djing and decided I wanted to explore my love for music through it. Over the years I slowly started learning its techniques, saved money, and bought a pair of decks and a mixer. But it was only in 2008, when I moved to Atlanta, that I finally started dedicating time to learning this art form.
The following year I flew to San Francisco with my decks, on the way to Burning Man. And on the playa was where it all started… I pulled my decks out to meet the playa dust, and played of an art car during the whole week. It changed my life forever and I never stopped playing since.
Then I got involved in the Southeast of US scene, playing on and off at different events, and collaborating with different local crews. Always returning to the playa every summer!
Finally, by the end of 2012, I quit my full-time job in Atlanta and moved to New York City to pursue music full-time, and study music production at Dubspot. After djing for several years music completely took over my life. From there, changing my life’s path and going after my dreams was a natural move. So the plan is to have my first tracks coming out later this year. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I hope you like my mixes. And I love to get feedback… 😉
“Psychedelic Trance is a way of life, opening your mind to realize your true surroundings, who you are, what you feel and what gives you Energy to go on every single second, wanting to evolve to the next level of consciousness with the Universe, eternally searching for Peace, Love and Harmony. – Vítor”
