Portugal Minimal / Deep Tech Deep House Tech House

Helder Teixeira has spent years fine-tuning his music winning formula.

"I always had a non-dj approach of djing, in the sense that when playing i am not focussing on making the floor go crazy or focussing on the idea of always keeping the energy level up, up, up!
But i am very passionate about sharing with the crowd what i think are the dopest records of the moment or the dopest classics.

In that sense i’m not pretending to be “right” or “wrong” and i will not make 100% of everybody happy, but i feel that my duty is to inform people of what’s really hot, would it be timeless classics or brand new records.
I’m always trying to present to people a little bit of the history of “my” beloved House and Techno , as i tend to do so by playing very personal “classics” not the Hits from the past but very unique jams that in my mind represent the essence of what is magic in House and Techno."

Born in 1980, Helder Teixeira sparked interest in music early, starting his career in 1992. Began to be known as Dj Narcotic. His musical style was techno and played at private parties for friends.

In 1994 opted for Acid House, playing themes of Phuture, Fast Eddie, DJ Pierre, DJ Camacho and among others. After just over a year, gives himself completely, the whole slope House!
