Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement
About Leo Janeiro
Nowadays, Leo Janeiro is considered one of the outstanding DJs in the electronic scene in brazil with all his groovy sets concerning House Music.
From small parties (under the influence of top brazilian DJs, as well as black music) up to nationwide dance floors, Leo Janeiro has drawn his history sharing turntables with international DJs like Carl Cox (UK), Deep Dish (USA), Josh Wink (USA) , Layo & Bushwacka ( UK ) , Booka Shade ( Ger ) , Martin Eyerer ( Ger ) , Claude VonStroke ( USA ), John Acquaviva ( CAN ) , Pete Tong ( Uk ) and others .
For being a black music party lover, Leo Janeiro was invited to take part in Rio de Janeiros radio station program in 1994. From that moment on, his career has never stopped and he was also been considered one of the main radio DJs.
In 2002, after playing in many clubs and doing lots of gigs, Leo Janeiro was nominated one of the best DJs in Brazil by the Brazilian magazine DJ SOUND and 2007 the best dj scene in Rio . However, little by little his music started to follow other ways: he started flirting with house music and techno that were blowing the dance floors all over the town.
Leo Janeiro has performed full of house music and tech house in most important clubs in Rio , such as Lounge 69 ( Neo ) and Fosfobox ( Bootleg ).

Stefano Frisoni Bio;
Stefano from Rimini got into music when he still only 12, by listening to italian dance music and a little bit of house: in the meanwhile it was born the love for making music.
He produces his first production in 1997, by making some dance tracks. In the year 2000 he felt a suddenly upside down, when he first listen to thecno music, thanks to the magic venue in the nearby, The Cocorico' Club, where everything seemed to be different than the other places: it all came to a massive energetic sound!!!!
So in the year 2003 he met my colleague Daniel, a.k.a. CantoDj with whom he started to plan seriously my producer career together. When 2 crazy minds join their forces together, it could only come out a strong and talented project in which his idea and my skills in making music work perfectly together. That's how TEAMTEK was born, a duo project founded by CantoDj and myself.
They year 2007 sees his new collaboration with Francesco Bonora, a close friend of his: They decided to build up a new crew ,the PUNTO G Staff and a new electronic label, which is the ELECTRO G RECORDS Special FRANCESCO BONORA, A.K.A.

Swedish citizen, Christian Smith spent the late 80’s years in Germany
soaking up the early house and techno sound of Sven Vath. Now based in
Barcelona, he has been championing his funky mix of house and techno
for more than a decade, playing across Asia, North & South America,
and Europe, plus regular slots at summer festivals like UK’s

Love Techno. His music released on a variety of top labels like
Renaissance; Josh Wink’s Ovum, Carl Cox’s Intec, Darren Emerson's
Underwater, and his very own Tronic, only proves his flexibility in the
studio. Similarly on the decks, Christian’s set is a cauldron of chunky
grooves with loads of energy, 3 decks and effects. Some of his favorite
clubs are: Ageha, Tokyo; Loft, Barcelona; Pacha, Buenos Aires; Arches,
Glasgow; and Zouk, Singapore. With a full length Smith & Selway
artist album out on Sino in 2007 and massive support from DJ's ranging
from Deep Dish to Carl Cox to Richie Hawtin, the future is very certain
for Christian to stay on top as one of the leaders in forward thinking
