village_underground_lisboaINTRODUCING A VILLAGE RESIDENT ..... João Pedro started making jungle and drum ‘n’ bass music at just 17 years old. He’d dabbled with a guitar as a teenager, but he never looked back once he realised the freedom and versatility afforded to him by a computer. He soon strayed into dubstep, and was trying to explain to a friend that it sounded a bit like cosmic dub music, when the name @rastronaut came around (like a rasta astronaut, ya get it?). These days he is still firmly rooted in the bassy sounds of his youth, but now also incorporates a tropical techno twist.
Being a producer and DJ rarely pays the bills, especially in Lisbon, so João Pedro worked for two years at @factmag when they had an office in Lisbon. He was writing press releases to promote nights and artists, and luckily for us it was then that he met the @enchufadalx team. He collaborated more and more with them, until he finally started to work alongside @brankoofficial a label manager, helping with promo, and started putting out his own tunes on the label.
In 2014, the year we opened, Enchufada joined forces with Village Underground to create our infamous sun-drenched Global Village parties. Soon after this they moved into Container 3, where they remain today, managing the label and recording the occasional live stream with special guests (listen on their Facebook page). Being part of Village Underground puts Enchufada at the centre of a lot of activity - we often have fans from around the world popping in to catch a glimpse of the Enchufada team. #happyresidents #happycoworkers #lifeinacontainer #villageundergroundlisboa
