André Soares is a DJ, Promoter and Radio Broadcaster.
Started his adventure as a DJ in 1998. His school? One of the best, the bars at the famous Bairro Alto in Lisbon and some underground events.
In 2002 he comes up with his alter ego - that he still holds today - Señor Pelota.
From this hedonist moment on he begins to develop a more active, regular and enjoyable work.He assumes himself as an advanced music disseminator. From the classics to the present, his sets are based on an eclectic, yet consistent, approach to music inspired by languages like Disco, House and Techno. This tends to result in unexpected surprises.
He is currently responsible for the monthly night "Mutante" at Lounge Bar, Lisbon. “Mutante” is also a radio Show at Antena3 Dance national station.
While music programmer he already went through reference clubs like Mood (2004/05) or Velvet (2006/07) and, more recently, Bruno's Bar at Peniche beach (2008). Actually he is co-responsable for the DJs programming at the 5 stars Myriad Hotel by Sana in Lisbon.
He is also involved in a range of music projects. The highlight: Glam Slam Dance, a partnership with DJ Mario Valente, Intelectronik with Pan Sorbe and, more recently, the Oporto Collective: FREIMA.Señor Pelota already made his mark in festivals like Creamfields Lisbon (07), Super Bock Super Rock (2007/13/14) Sudoeste (2009/10), Super Bock SurfFest (2011), Milhões de Festa (2011/12) and Boom Festival(2010/14).Outside Portugal he already released himself in Goa, Cape Verde, London, Berlin, Rio De Janeiro, Madrid, Barcelona and Amesterdam.
Nowadays he holds regular dates in some of the most important clubs in Portugal like Lounge, MusicBox, Casino Lisboa, Rive Rouge or Lux.
