The start in the end of 80’s was in playground parties, when the tapes recorded from
the radio and a few records bought by his mother opened the gates of a culture that
was only beginning. Always ahead of his time, Roger is one of the most popular and
respected DJ’s in Brazil and the most prestigious DJs in Brazil. The aggressive style is
the trademark of his DJ set with heavy energy sounds, perfect mix that can hypnotize
the crown and a outsdanding carisma.
The full-energy as a performer is real strong in every act of his DJ Set. It is really
thrilling to see him performing live and it’s impossible to be indifferent to him, even
those who do not like his kind of music can get very impressed by his skills with such a
outstanding performance full of technique and emotion. Everything a DJ can do with
deck’s and a mixer it’s just fun for him. His sound is a long trip into a evolution mix
with a unique mix of Trance & progressive, but make no mistake to underestimate his
taste for music and don’t get surprised to listen a bite of techno or Electro during his
set. This man is not afraid of new sounds. His talent as a awesome turntableist is an
extra tocuh and the crowd follows him with every mix, scratch or back-spin.
In his home country, he is a icon to a hole generation and every week, he reaches
more than 200.000 listeners at his DJ Show at Radio Jovem Pan Fm, the bigest
satellite radio station in brazil. On 2005 he won the as “Best DJ? on the annual
ceremony of the DJ Sound Magazine Awards, the most importat in Latin America and
his performance in big festivals like SKOL BEATS and CREAMFIELDS side to side with
names like Tiesto, Fatboy Slim, Armin Van Buure, Ferry Corsten, Marco V and many
more worldwide top artists.
All this conection to music also moved him to world of studios, where the DJ can finally
create his own style and sounds. In 1998 he created his digital alter-ego named
BADBLOCK and started to put in the mix his ideas... After a good time of work the
results started to came up and some of these tracks were included in top seling
compilations in the brazillian market. In 2007 he is back to the studios once again and
his new tracks must be avaiable very soon.
His outstanding talent was exposed to the world after his performance for 200.000
people during the Rio Parade in june of 2003, the biggest international parade in Latin-
america. In December of the same year, he also produced and played at the first dutch
event in brazil: Kremlin World Tour was a huge success with more than 5.000 party
people and he shared the deck’s with the dutch DJ’s Don Diablo and Astrid. The next
step in career was to move outside his home country borders, and so he did. During a
his first international tour he reached Europe with huge success on his gig’s in some of
the coolest club’s and events.
The music business is also in his target. The DJ feeling put him in the spot in one of
the biggest companies on the music business: Sony Music. In 2004 he started his own
company, so NRG Music & Management made it ?s first steps. Recently, he just signed
a deal with Maxpop Music to release a series of new products together with Armada
Music, Armin Van Buuren ?s own label and on of the biggest dance labels in the world.
Always conected with the DJ Culture, Roger was invited by DJ Sound Magazine
(www.djsound.com.br) to be a correspondent in Rio de Janeiro and also found some
time to colaborate in one of the most popular websites in brazil (www.riofesta.com.br)
where he makes some music and event reviews, putting on the net his point of view of
The end of this story is far away from the end, and a new chapter is writen every
night, after every scratch, every mix... It’s time to move forward and break the
brazillian borders and show the world whow long can he go.
Special thanks to Roger Lyra!!!
