DJ Vibe is Portugal's premier disc jockey, and a pillar of Lisbon's thriving dance scene. A man of many talents, Sergio Santos joins us from LA. As with both selectors the music speaks for itself, so open your ears...
Vibe was born in Lisbon, Portugal, and became a DJ at 15. At this age he started to perform in clubs and before long he was playing side by side with big names of the dance scene like Paul Oakenfold, Tony Humphries, Roger Sanchez and Danny Tenaglia. However, it was his partnership with another Portuguese, Rui da Silva, that rose them to the top of the house music scene, both nationally and internationally. Together they brought life to a project, Underground Sound of Lisbon, which in the summer of 1994 launched the hit "So Get Up" featuring vocals and lyrics by Darin Pappas released by Rob di Stefano's label, Tribal USA, reaching number 1 in the Billboard Club Chart. He has done an extensive number of remixes for DJ Jiggy, Danny Tenaglia, Kristine W and others.
In addition to DJing, Vibe co-owns Kaos Records, a record store and label in Lisbon, which he founded in 1992 with entrepreneur António Cunha. Vibe has mixed a variety of compilations for Kaos Records, most notably Global Grooves. He was also involved in other projects such as LHT, NYLX, Sonic Hunters and Meco.
By 2011 DJ Vibe launched his own club, in the Oporto city – Indústria Club, where guests as Danny Tenaglia, Art Department , Dyed soundorom, DJ Harvey, Laurent Garnier, Danny Krivit, Audiofly, Grandmaster flash, Jazzie B to name but a few , and so much more international and national Electronic Music names have been playing till today. He still regularly tours the world and is revered as one of true masters of the extended set.
