Deep House Chill Out Electronica / Downtempo House +5

Artist Biography:

Sarantino's sound is super fresh. His signature style features a grooving bassline, elements of funky and tech house with a modern electronic twist! He cut his DJing teeth at legendary Johannesburg Night Club 96 Degrees, having graduated from a 1976 mixer, tape player and record player with no pitch control. Sarantino's residency at 96 Degrees opened doors all over his native South Africa, with Sarantino playing everything from JHB Super Clubs to Cape Town yacht parties. After 14 years of DJing Sarantino only has one hard and fast music rule.....enjoy the beats!
In the UAE he's played for Trilogy, Left Bank, Eight, SAX, Oceans, and Etoiles. He was also crowned Movida Corona King of the Dj's Middle East in 2010 where he was then flown to Berlin to represent the UAE and compete against all the other international finalists. Now residing in Perth, Australia his new chapter begins where he is sure to shake the sound barriers of the Perth dance scene.…..
