Just who is Asadinho? After almost two decades of DJing across the globe, running a label, and producing hundreds of releases under various monikers, Asadinho may seem to be a fresh name to the scene, but the man behind it certainly is no novice. His deep, sophisticated, party-savvy sets have been tickling feet and minds alike since the mid-nineties, having DJed in hundreds of clubs over 40 countries across 5 continents to crowds of up to 20,000 people.

After reinventing his sound as Asadinho, it did not take long for labels to prick up their ears to his updated aesthetic, with remixes wrapped up of artists such as Lana del Rey, Doc Martin, Phoenix, Wallflower (Defected) Onur Ozman and many more. His remix of Lana del Rey was in the Beatport Top 100 Deep House Chart for over 4 months and has had more than two million listens online. Recent supporters include Seth Troxler, Tensnake, MANDY, Aeroplane, Maceo Plex, Doc Martin, Damian Lazarus, Laura Jones, DJ T, Kate Simko, The Glimmer Twins, Mark Farina, Terry Francis, and Alex Gopher plus many more.

Not forgetting that Asadinho has to date sold well over 100,000 units of his work, his experience in production can be heard in every release, his extensive tour history has taught him a thing or two about the dancefloor, straddling the lines between the contemporary and the old school in his addictive journey sets.
