DEAN AMO (FR/ Spain BCN)
GENRE: TECHNO - TECH /DEEP HOUSE
Currently based in Barcelona but born in Lille (France) where the industry and the "so called bad weather" rules the everyday's life, but where the Belgian clubbing is taking every day a stronger part of the education of his generation, Dean Amo dived into the electronic music world in 1997, when he discovered the strong potential of expression this new music genre could represent for him.
Since he started up, Techno music has always be taking a large amount of place in his life. Inspired at first by artists such as Jeff Mills, Derrick May or Surgeon, and driven by a strong passion, he will set up in few years a huge records collection and experiment most of the styles and techniques of mixing until he developed a particular sensitivity for the most hypnotic side of the techno music, an interest that he will never let going down during his career and that he will adapt to lower bpms by the time, in order to keep all the spirit and match it with the
nowadays 's music trends.
Combining good dj skills and outstanding music selections with what can only be described as true energic presence behind the decks Dean Amo got quickly more confident in the dj booth.
