BIOGRAPHY

Twofold is London-born, DJ and producer currently living in Lisbon, for whom the concept of flat, loop-based, four-to-the-floor dance music is most definitely something to be shunned.

Taking sonic cues from DJ’s and musicians such as James Holden, Andrew Weatherall, Michael Mayer, Apparat, Luke Abbott, Nathan Fake, or Fairmont, the first records he heard from Kompakt and Border Community were all the impulse he needed to move back to his hometown to pursue a degree in sound engineering. While there, he was fortunate enough to land a few prestigious gigs warming up for DJ’s such as Mobilee’s Dan Curtin, Serge Santiago or Timo Garcia.

Since returning to Portugal in early 2009, he has shared DJ booths with a lot of the artists who inspired him in the first place like Nathan Fake, Extrawelt, Luke Vibert, Jon Hopkins, Mark Henning, or Applescal. He has played in all of Portugal’s best clubs including Lux, Gare and Musicbox and at festivals such as Neopop, Festival Forte, the world renowned BOOM FESTIVAL, RitterButzke in Berlin, and Vlla in Amsterdam

As a producer he has released music on the berlin-based Aromamusic among others. In 2013 he founded Two Dots Recordings a label/collective based in Lisbon and Stockholm with longtime friend Thomm (Paperweight). His first track for the label, “Omission” was later picked up by Fever, who have put out music by Max Cooper, Gabriel Ananda, Applescal, Wesley Matsell and Avus, among many others.

He kicked off 2014 with an invitation from the Red Bull Music Academy to play at the second edition of Boiler Room in Lisbon. The reaction to his performance was overwhelmingly positive with many people declaring his set as the best of the evening. A host of invitations followed including Rock In Rio, a return to the Boom Festival, Festival Forte, the closing set at Outjazz, and he rounded out the year with a well received gig in Amsterdam.

In January of 2015 he was asked to return to the Boiler Room where he played an explosive set with good friend and frequent studio collaborator, SwitchSt(d)ance, followed by a memorable evening at Lux. To round off the month he played at Musicbox with Ninja Tune mainstay Falty DL. The combination of powerful percussive elements, hypnotic melodies and an eclectic and often surprising musical selection, make Twofold one of Portugal’s most interesting underground artists.
