Rui Santoro was born on November 3th, 1987, in Aveiro. From an early age music was part of his life. At 8 years old, his studies began at the Conservatory of Classical Music, and at 15 years he already was speaker and author of a weekly radio program. While continuing studies, his enthusiasm and talent around the music persisted and stood out. In 2004, he began his career as a Professional DJ. Despite his young age, Rui Santoro guaranteed its presence as a DJ in some of the leading clubs from North to South of Portugal. In 2011, his passion for music and dance talent in musical composition, led this young DJ to invest in his career as a producer. The first production steps were taken in collaboration with the best in the business, Octavio Sousa and his partner the producer Luis Jardim, both for its extensive experience in music composition and production, either by production work that developed with big names in international music: Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Cher, Bjork, Bee Gees and others. His first single “FEEL US,” counts with the voice of soul and pop British Artist Shaun Antony. The originality and success of this dance music theme was confirmed by its presence in various national and international radios. Rui Santoro also produced some remixes, among which stands out “Verdes Anos”, of the Portuguese fado singer Carlos Paredes. The internationalization of this DJ / Producer comes in 2012.The international calls are the result of professional growth and the affirmation of this artist, and marks a new stage in his career. In the first half of 2012, Rui Santoro presents his work in some countries, like Switzerland, Angola, Mozambique and Brazil. Despite from being a DJ/Producer he is also Model that had integrated several works in the fashion world, and a finalist in the Law Course in the Lusófona University of Oporto. But his passion for music is so great, that he took over the career of DJ/Producer as main way of life. When he isn’t in studio, or in the discos, like being with family and friends, or sports, especially surfing. Whenever he can, he goes to the sea to renew energy!
