Biography

Joel Fernandes, known as Dj Lince was born in 1982 and lives in the northern part of Portugal, Gaia. Since the age of 4 he has been interested in music and joined a music school initially to learn the organ which soon has been replaced for guitar lessons and accumulating 4 years of classical guitar. Joel went on to get taught the electric guitar by one of Portugal’s most renowned guitarists and it was around this stage where his interest in electronic music started and in 2000 he set himself up with a pair of SL1200’s and quickly got bitten by the turntablism bug.

It was not long after that he started playing small parties and beach side bars in the Summer months where he developed his diverse sound playing anything from deephouse, tribal to more progressive sets. Always pushing the limits and at the same time giving people on the dancefloor something to smile and about.

In 2000 Dj Lince decided he was to produce music so he enrolled into the Danceplanet sound engineering course so he can transform his ideas into electronic music.

Recently he has been taken on by Groove Productions as a resident dj for their events and has since supported the likes of Frank Maurel and Carlos Fauvrelle, Chus & Ceballos, Carlos Manaca, Dj The Fox, Rui da Silva, Pete Tha Zouk, Miss Sheila, Mario Roque aka X-Man, Pedro Tabuada and more…

Joel is also assistant to his friends label Afroboogie Recordings helping out with PR and Promotions as well as making sure the website is updated. Lince is also very involved in giving his 2cents worth on the tracks.

Here you have a DJ not only dedicated to the beats but also the good times.
