A veteran portuguese DJ as well as the producer behind one of the last year’s deadliest leftfield groovers, “Angel Heart”, Photonz is the main alias of Marco Rodrigues, co-founder of Rádio Quântica and the infamous mina parties in Lisbon.

Together with Violet (Naive) and Marum (Rabbit Hole / Suspension), he’s helped kickstart a new DIY local movement centred in the intersection of rave culture, trans-feminism and queer politics. Sonically, he combines elements of early trance, US midwestern house and techno, The Hague’ s raw electro and various iterations of the UK bass continuum into euphoric productions and sets – as felt recently at Panorama Bar, Atonal, Sonar BCN and the Honey Soundsystem parties in San Francisco. His widely celebrated debut album titled “Nuit”, released on Dark Entries at the end of last year, brought him to the attention of a wider audience, while his new material planned for release on Violet’s own Naive imprint later this year is already setting dancefloors ablaze worldwide.
