Dr YXAM, (33) is one of the few DJ’s in Portugal who plays progressive/uplifting Trance music. Born in 1976 in Paris [France], he was caught in the spell of music, when his friend revealed to him the secrets of the art of mixing. A few years later, his father bought him a mixer and a pair of turntables and said that some day he could be a good DJ. During the next six years, he played at school parties in France and Portugal for his friends and sought his own style. At the age of 18, he was a resident at the Mirage Disco in Marinhais, for 2 years. A few years after, he was resident at ‘Sobre Margem’ in Benavente.
