Nuno Rosa’s most recent Alter Ego is nothing less than the result of a lifetime promiscuity with music. He had no other choice, since he had a turntable right next to his cradle. The destiny was set, he just had to go with the flow…
When he was 10 and got a tape with “The Message” from Grandmaster Flash in it, things started to speed up. In no time he was collecting records and making mixtapes for his friends. Just adding styles to his love list, Punk, New Wave, Electro, Rap, Pop, Rock, Classic or Jazz were all part of the soundtrack of his teens.
The 90s and the second summer of love started with something new for him: DJing for the first time in a club! Shit, was that an incredible experience or what?! People dancing to your sound, what more do you want than that? The path, once again, was set. At daytime he was working at a record shop or on a indie label as promoter and at night he was spreading “the word” on the radio, promoting parties or DJing around the country and sometimes side by side with some of the big international names on the scene.
The end of the millennium brought a decisive upgrade in his career: he was invited to work as a resident DJ at LUX (Lisbon), one of the best clubs in the world.
Later in 2008 Nuno Rosa decided to roll the iron dice: GUNROSE is born as a result of a relationship between Techno, Electro and House. The drive is based in what he does best: hard red- lined four-on-the-floor bass kicks setting up the rhythm.
With this aesthetic in mind, he starts in 2010 the still existing DSIDE nights at LUX, inviting some of his heroes like Boys Noize, Erol Alkan, Les Petits Pilous, Gesaffelstein, Para One, Surkin, Brodinski, Djedjotronic, A Trak and many others.
At the same year and giving use to all the analog gear he bought and experience that he collected through all these years, he brings out his first EP – Gregory Bag – and soon he reaches Boys Noize’s ears with some new demos…
Just recently in June 2012 Gunrose released the formidable EP named “Tears of Pleasure” hitting the digital stores on Boysnoize Records’ sublabel BNR Trax. Including the infamous club tune ‘Tears of Pleasure’ played by Boys Noize since a while. Besides the big support by the label boss himself this EP in general received impressive feedback by e. g. Mr. Oizo, Dave Clarke, Feadz, Erol Alkan naming a few.
Mr. Oizo: Technoparty !!! Love it
Les Petits Pilous: Nice Work ! Can’t wait to try it in the club :) Great One big support
Dave Clarke: “Technoparty” = Good jacking stuff
Feadz: Technoparty is good to dance
Erol Alkan: Tears Of Pleasure is the one
Crookers: Can’t decide if I like more Tears Of Pleasure or Acid Waves, dope release
