Some DJs are ambitious music explorers, some are experts at conducting the energy of a party, but only a few truly master both of these arts. João Semedo has proven to be one of the rare DJs of that category in Porto. He has shared stage with some of the most famous of his international peers, but also managed to build a strong relationship of trust with the city’s best venues and most demanding crowds. The sounds that he loves and shares come from all horizons of the musical world, even though his knowledge is firmly rooted in House music.
But although he has been known to effortlessly bring parties to unexpected territories, his sets never rely solely on eclecticism or any other easy trick. His most important quality as a DJ is of a more subtle kind: humility. The humility of someone who aims to craft a memorable musical experience in tight collaboration with the party-goers. Because great collaborations always require a generous amount of both humility and talent.
