JAAKKO is Tiago Lima, Physiotherapist, Dj and Party Activist from the city of Porto. Best known as the founder of Fusion Productions, also responsible for bringing to Porto artists such as Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Minilogue, Loco Dice, Mathew Jonson, D-Nox & Beckers, Emok, Paco Osuna, Barem, Max Cooper, Matador or tINI.
But let’s get back to basics: as a teenager, JAAKKO grew an enormous interest in electronic music, and back in the 90’s his idols were Laurent Garnier, Jeff Mills, François Kevorkian, Green Velvet and Plastikman.
Over the years he became an obssessive collector of all genres of electronic music and it was inevitable that he would assume the command of the dj booth. While he was doing is degree in Physiotherapy he played only at private parties, but in 2008, Tiago gives place to JAAKKO.
In 2009 he founds Fusion Productions, hosting the “Fusion Parties”. This showed to be the right move leading him to a meteoric ascension as he became an usual suspect within the line ups of the best clubs in Porto such as Gare, Hard Club, Indústria, Plano B, Porto Rio, Armazém do Chá, Villa, Pitch and festivals such as Greentripping´09 in the Azores Islands, Freedom Festival´11 (Mainstage) ,the Boom Festival´10 (Iboga Area) ´12 (Alchemy Circle), Neo Pop Festival ´12 and mega events like EnterPorto.
Known for his long sets, this young artist loves to blend styles and you can expect a sizzling combination of Psytrance, Progressive and Techno, a merge of sounds based on groovy melodies and funky rhythms, sometimes trippy and hypnotic but always served along with a juicy fat bass with the overriding aim of pumping up the dancefloor, leading clubbing lovers through the perfect journey.
This is JAAKKO … Now meet him at the dancefloor!!!
