He also remixed various artists such as Freddie Mercury, Kylie Minogue, Mirror People or Anderson Noise.
After some years living in London, the influence of the city is noticeable on his sound. Exploring the more raw and punchy analog sounds, his productions make us travel from a rave on the M25 to a loft in New York. Although the UK sound is present, Pixel82 also relates to all the classic sounds of house and techno that came before him. It was also in London that he started his night JackYaBody that continues to this day, now in Plano B, Porto. It is also essential to mention his work for 8 years as a music booker in Plano B in Porto, one of the best clubs in the Portuguese electronic scene where he is also a resident..
Besides bringing some of the best current renowned artists, the club also works as a window where you can catch many of the artists of the future. He is also the A&R of the recently created Cubo Records, an electronic music label associated with his club, that strived to discover new talents, mainly in the Portuguese scene.
