Nuno dos Santos

Nuno dos Santos

This Portugal-born Dutch national has a cheeky charm about him that is difficult to escape and that works so well in his favor when taking control of the decks in a club. There is constant eye contact, an almost flirtatious vibe going on with the crowd, a sort of positive energy that wins you over almost instantly. Whether it’s running his own label “Something Happening Somewhere,” producing music, or DJing, you can feel that Nuno is utterly in love with what he does.

This love translates into an almost obsessive curiosity for fresh music. Where most DJs limit themselves to one style and stick with it, Nuno fuses different genres and creates a unique style of his own, always two steps ahead of the rest. Combining that creative flexibility with a telepathic ability to read a dance floor, he is able to build the sort of memorable sets that only someone with years of experience can. From deep house to serene techno, old classics to modern gems, Nuno has it covered.

Proof of this comes from the fact that he headlines only the most upbeat clubs around Europe and America. Nuno is a resident at Trouw, Amsterdam, where his unique sense of musical storytelling can be felt through his performances that are full of life and connection. He was also a key resident at the now defunct, but still legendary Club 11, where he had a huge impact on the club’s direction and legacy as a result of booking guests like Modeselektor, Isolee and Lawrence for the first time.

Nuno Dos Santos is also an acclaimed producer who has worked both solo and in collaboration with others including Patrice Baumel, Estroe and TJ Kong (with whom he released a fantastic full length album, After Dark, My Sweet in 2010) and has done so on established labels like Compost, Carl Craig’s Planet E, Joris Voorn’s Green Records plus others like Traum and Connaisseur. His sound is created using his deep knowledge of music and veers from sublime techno to more emotional house as exemplified by classic tracks like ‘Merging’, ‘Hamming’ and ‘Circus Bells.’

His experience of working with the best, and of predicting trends ahead of time, have served him well and now feed back into his role as label owner at SoHaSo. “The name itself leaves a lot open for your own imagination,” says Nuno himself, who has so far released essential EPs by the likes of Mayaku, Love over Entropy and Presk. “I want to release musical material from befriended producers, new talent and my own work on Something Happening Somewhere.” SoHaSo now holds regular label nights at Trouw and is just another one of the ways in which Nuno Dos Santos is making other people as passionate about music as he is himself.
