Living in the also known as Invicta city, OPorto, they had a similar course and they met at the well known " Oporto Official Afterhours " , at Maré Alta , the boat. This Afterhours was considered for 3 years , the most exciting one at Portugal and the hype was totally there. Together with two other friends they were doing the programmation and booking artists as Tiefschwarz, Charles Webster, Dixon, Robert Owens, François Kevorkian, Jef K and many others. Ambicious, interested, devoted to djing this guys were always together, practicing, creating, exploring electronic music and improving their skills. Filipe had also one of the most well suceeded record store of Oporto on that time and Gustavo was resident and responsible for all the musical direction of one of the most important and oldest clubs in Portugal, Indústria Porto. Artists like Michael Mayer, Miss Kittin, Laurent Garnier, Tiga, Booka Shade, Ivan Smagghe, Anthony Rother, Nouvelle Vague, Ed Motta, Dj Marky, Ricardo Villalobos, 2manydjs and many other were his guests for this Club and his events.
