With this concept he set himself as one of the pioneers that brought these sounds to the club scene all over the country.

Today he is one of the most active DJs and promoters of the Balkan-Cumbia scene in Europe. A tireless traveler, he has already traveled half the world carrying this Latin-Balkan sound that characterizes his set and on the dance floor he is a master of making you move.
