Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, since young age Maldoror has been atracted to everything creative. From writing plays, acting, performances on alternative circus or singing in bands, he has always found himself through giving wings to his imagination and curiosity while challenging the norm and what dominates the culture in any given time. That was the reason why he began djing. In true punk spirit, if no one is playing what you would love to dance... do it yourself!
He started Critical Party, a project with his friend Alcifer, playing alternative, industrial and goth music, inviting performance artists and incorporating them, whenever they could.
At the same time he began creating mixtapes and a bit created Drk in Drk Radio Show and started broadcasting it on Radio Dark Tunnel, and later on, on his own YouTube channel.
The end of Critical Party started a period more dedicated to his online presence, with the creation of a website, online store, Facebook and Instagram pages that, together, gave him the platform to make new connections and invitations to make podcasts for others. By then, the project was already a duo, with the other member dedicated to the visual design aspect of the channels and their content. That also gave Maldoror an edge in the social media sea and boosted his name, with regular online mixtapes and four online shows dedicated to the darkest side of electronic music.
Today, he’s known for his dark, heavy industrial techno sets, that drives crowds to a non-stop rave due to the power & energy delivered to the dancefloor.
Currently resident on Nada Tumultum and promoter of Dark Fiend Club, bringing to Lisbon some of the best names from abroad.
As for the future... who knows what’s next?
