EAT DUST was first introduced to electronic music by his father who was a bouncer at the time in some south side Lisbon clubs. That was the first step to start listening to dj mixes and learning more about the underground movement. Djs like Luis Leite and DJ Vibe at the time were the first musical references and biggest influences. Still in young age he started spinning some records and didn’t take long to begin playing in big clubs. Dub Tiger was the great helping hand and invited him to be resident in one of the most iconic clubs in Portugal, Alcantara Club. There he got the chance to share the booth with some great artists like Luis Leite, Carlos Manaça, Miss Sheila, Dj Jiggy, George Morel, Cristian Varela and many more, Alcântara Club was the starting point and the big breakthrough in electronic movement. Years later he ́s invited again by is friend Dub Tiger to join the Plastik Galaxy record label, and helped to built Rebels that soon became one of the best events and artist management in Portugal. EAT DUST also became part of Live Lisboa crew where he played with artists like Santé, Cuartero, Hector Couto. Music production was a way to explore creativity, and original music started to come out and being supported by some major artists. Roger Sanchez was the first by putting one of EAT DUST ́s first tracks, Burning Soul on his week podcast has the “hot track” of the week. Since then EAT DUST have been supported by artist like Marco Carola, Stefano Noferini, Leon, Stacey Pullen and released in labels like Deeperfect, DPE, Plastik Galaxy, Piston Recordings. 2018 marks the return of EAT DUST to Plastik Galaxy as an Artist and A&R of the label, making also his debut at Kremlin and at Pacha Ofir on New years eve. Playing at some of the best Portuguese clubs, events and with a strong music catalogue EAT DUST aka Mario Silva is surely one of the most growing names in the underground scene in Portugal.
