PEDRO GOYA

[Por]

Da infância dos clássicos, a tornar-se ele mesmo um clássico. Cresceu com música de uma era dourada que provavelmente já não volta – Michael Jackson, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder -, formou-se com o House divertido e de alta energia de Derrick Carter ou Sneak. O que se seguiu foi a vontade de ele próprio contribuir para o dourado de uma nova época. Perfeccionista e dedicado a manter um som próprio e facilmente reconhecível, a passagem das cabines para o estúdio foi natural e hoje não vive sem programar caixas de ritmos. Classic, Bloop, Brique Rouge ou Overall Limited são algumas das editoras que se tornaram escaparates para a música de Pedro Goya, que pelas suas próprias mãos já atravessou fronteiras inúmeras vezes para clubes de referência como o Watergate (Berlim) ou o Propaganda (Moscovo). São já 16 anos de carreira e experiência que o tornam parte integrante do quadro permanente da música de dança portuguesa, e justificam por inteiro a posição de A&R na vertente de editora discográfica da Frenzy, que aliás estreou com o disco “Flux” de sua autoria.

Growing up with Soul Music as background soundtrack [Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones] soon understood music would have a major role in his life.

In the 90’s, when House was a novelty to a kid like him – Gemini, Derrick Carter, Sneak [to name a few] became his main electronic musical influences [and it’s no difficult to understandwhy].

The need to understand how the records he played where actually done, gave place to an incredible lifetime journey of knowledge eagerness.

Some of his music can be found in some of the most influential and established labels on the market from back then:

– Classic [from Derrick Carter], Music For Freaks, Brique Rouge, OM and Exun [to name a few]

Alongside with that, Pedro’s DJ career had a huge boost, and the bookings worldwide were rising up.

– Propaganda [Russia], Watergate [Germany], Ashanti [Russia], Prozac [Poland], Labyrinth Music Festival [Japan], Café D’Anvers [Belgium], Siloin [Belgium], Moog [Barcelona], Sasse [Austria] where some of the clubs where the Portuguese DJ started to appear.

The respect and admiration came with due time. He’s in fact, one of Portugal’s most active Dj’s and music producers.

He’s a natural perfectionist, with a very peculiar sound signature.

His latest records can be found in such labels as Bloop , Overall [Hanfry Martinez], Container and Frenzy.

Recently he became the A&R Label Manager for Lisbon’s Event Planner – Frenzy.

If you had to label Pedro as a DJ, he would clearly be a House DJ, with pragmatic dance-floor reading abilities and great dj skills.
