Jorge Caiado (Balance / Groovement / Carpet & Snares):
This dedicated house music lover might have been taught the know-how in audio signal paths and production to become a licensed sound engineer. But it's in the clubs that he's learnt how to connect with the dancers. Absorbing a range of influences from bouncy Brazilian basslines to the various homesteads of American deep house, Jorge has been developing his own take on electronic dance music.
At only 25, he's already been DJing for eight years and currently working as a label manager assistant in Portuguese Groovement imprint. With forthcoming releases on Chicago's Balance Recordings, Jorge is looking to cement that style with some moves of his own.
