The music world was always something that fascinated Cardao. This strong passion for electronics began to develop around 2007, the year he made 16 years. Due to the first inflences as Victor Calderone, Chus & Ceballos or even Underground Sound of Lisbon, tech-house was what he most listened to.
He decided to start playing, doing dj set’s that could put any style lover to dance like there is no tomorrow. He also started going to parties, always with great attention to line-up’s and the work that the DJs in question had been developing.
You could say that the turn to techno happened in 2009, when Cardao attended the Coimbra Dance Fest where he saw Jeff Mills and Carl Craig. The sounds of Detroit quickly seized his heart and mind. It was then that his dj set’s began to gain a new form: more powerful, rawer, mental and industrial.
Among the major influences that helped Cardao to get where he is today there is Jeff Mills, Robert Hood, Paul Ritch, Oscar Mulero, Truncate, Deepbass, among others.
