Born and raised in sunny São Paolo, Brazil. Irie currently lives in Groningen, The Netherlands.
A typical name for the busy bee he is. ‘Irie’ is his actual first name.
His style can best be described as ‘eclectic’, mashing and mixing hip hop, reggae, funk and soul, rock, breaks, dubstep and even pop music. Irie evolves himself, since ‘style’ is never a definite concept and needs revision on a daily basis. Gifted with a pair of hands that operate best at the speed of sound and a broad interest in styles and genres, DJ Irie is one of The Netherlands’ most forth going, top notch turntablists, renowned for his skills.
In 2012 Irie won first place at the very first held European video-dj battle, called ‘MixMove’ in Paris, France. Later that year he got placed third at the annual VDJC Battle in Las Vegas [NV].
