Native from Lisbon, since 2009 is showing us his young, twisted, agressive and free mind side in project Razat. With countless musical references, ranging from classic music to psy-trance or funk music to drum‘n’bass, Razat gather all of these elemments to create a groundbreaking, complex and explosive sound. The productions signed by Razat are an effervescent blend of dubstep/drumstep/ glitch-hop /breaks/drum ‘n’ bass/ crossbreed/ electro/nu-rave which stumble into psycadelic and trembles with bassline power.
Razat’s power is better felt live. In his DjSet/LiveAct he plays a crazy mix of bass music and mashin’ it up with other music genres breaking with all rules and all lines pre established giving into his public a Unpredictability and versatile show.
