/// FRESHKITOS ///
Gustavo Pereira and Filipe Rodrigues have been attracted and inspired early on by music in general. Both living in the city known as Invicta, or Oporto, they created the well known party, "Porto Official Afterhours". Together and with the help of friends, they programmed and booked artists such as: Tiefschwarz, Charles Webster, Dixon, Robert Owens, François Kevorkian, Jef K and many others.
Ambitious and devoted to djing, these guys were always together, practicing, creating, and exploring electronic music. Filipe owned one of the most successful record stores of Oporto at the time and Gustavo was the music director and resident dj at one of the most important and oldest clubs in Portugal, Indústria Porto. Artists like Michael Mayer, Miss Kittin, Laurent Garnier, Tiga, Booka Shade, Ivan Smagghe, Anthony Rother, Nouvelle Vague, Ed Motta, Dj Marky, Ricardo Villalobos, 2manydjs and many others were his guests.
2004 was the year were the duo, Freshkitos officially started. On the first Saturday of 2007, they hosted an all-nighter set at Indústria and ever since they’ve been booked for dates all around Portugal as well as internationally in clubs and festivals like City Hall, Macarena, Kubik, The One (Barcelona) , Aquarium, The Egg, Wet Yourself (London) , Watergate (Berlin), Dv1 ( Lyon ), Weetamix (Geneve), Balaton Festival (Hungary), Freshweekend (Spain) and others.
In 2008, Gustavo and Filipe wanted to re-create the underground scene in Oporto, so they took things to the next level and opened their own spot, Gare Porto. It was a dream come true, but also a hard task, already having an existing full schedule. Sven Vath, John Digweed, James Holden, Richard Dorfmeister, Marco Carola, Josh Wink, Seth Troxler, Magda, Sebo K, Anja Schneider, Dop, Andre Galluzzi, Gui Boratto, Paul Kalkbrenner, Tiga, 2manydjs, and huge list of other artists. The club is still going strong today.
Gustavo also founded and programed Neopop Electronic Music Festival (ex Anti-Pop), the most important electronic music festival in Portugal.
Nowadays in Portugal, Freshkitos, are one of the references as they play all the main events and the most important festivals like Neopop, Sudoeste, Optimus Hype, and others.
Freshkitos is a state of mind inspired by a natural will to dance and to make everyone a lit bit happier.
/// MARCO BALDASSARRE ///
/// Marco Baldassarre ///
DJing in Italy since 2003 and London since 2006, Marco is a deep minimal techno connoisseur and his style behind the decks never leaves space for a break – by knowing how to interact with the crowd and body language on the dance floor, Marco proves to have an edge that is hardly easily matched. His passion not only stems from the music on its own, but also and especially from the way a party evolves.
This enthusiasm is also empowered by an amazing sense of rhythm and a great knowledge of song construction and structure gained through formal training and previous collaboration in productions with other London based producers.
