Hugo, as a jazz trained musician, found inspiration to make music from a combination of elements and influences.

His 10 years career takes him all over the world.

After several dancefloor burner, HUGO started to explore the brighter side of his dance attitude releasing a series of fresh tunes which blended jazz, house and funk that brought him out on the worldwide scene. In 2008 Hugo released "The Sloop and the Siren" on Jay Haze's label Tuning Spork. The Sloop rapidly became a must have for all the dj's of the global scene, a contemporary classic for dance music market. Hugo's works have been appreciated by the most influential artists and his remixes are gaining great feedbacks all around.
