DJ Hugo Boss
Hugo, born in Mozambique and raised in Portugal, music has always been his passion and he self thought at home with his first “toy” acquired in 1998. A year later Hugo had produced a few Hip Hop tracks for himself and others.
Hugo moved permanently to the UK in 2003 but because of other commitments he put the music aside for years until he bought his first Dj set in 2006 and started playing at home where he would spend most of his spare time mixing and learning alone.
On the next 2 years Hugo promoted various summer parties in Portugal in the heart of Lisbon and was invited to play at Calipso club in the Algarve.
He was invited to play a few times at the prestigious Fridge Bar in London - Brixton. He also played @ Aura, Ruby Lounge (Kings Cross) and Peacock (West Kensington).
Although his music varies from Kizomba, Hip Hop, R&B, Dancehall, House and others, Hugo's priority mission is to share (worldwide) the love, connection and effect Kizomba music has on people's lives while bringing together music scenes that co-exist but don’t often mix.
In 2010 after being the resident Dj for Fulham Football Club for a year and half playing for an average of 20.000 people per day, the chance to get back in the night club scene came. Hugo was more than ready to take up on this highly competitive market so he grabbed the offer with both hands and started to create his own magic on the dance floor while still learning and getting better making him stronger day by day.
Hugo Boss is currently one of the most in-demand Djs because of his unique and distinctive style that can be instantly recognizable when he is on the decks. He is always looking for the next best and craziest thing to do as he is also always challenging himself while playing.
He has played everywhere in the U.K and also at various international festivals, clubs and party nights across Europe in different cities in countries like France, Portugal, Spain, Czech Republic, Croatia, Finland, Holland, Slovakia, Hungary and Austria.
Hugo is currently resident Dj for Mambo City and also promotes his own parties with his partner and Dance Instructor Tania Mendonca (HBT Events) with much success since October 2011. HBT Events has since organized events with the following artists: Afrolatin Connection, Nelson Freitas, Niltom Ramalho, Johnny Ramos, Neuza, Chelsy Shantel, Nichols, Vanda May, William Araujo and Jarrion.
