Land: The Netherlands
Being in the Netherlands since 2003, MC Knowledje is the true definition of a host mc. As he was born in Portugal in 1981, at a age of 14 he started his music career as a MC and a host, working with DJs on club nights, radio-shows and life performances. Starting and touring in the early 90s hosting hip hop, dance hall, reggae, jungle and drum and bass in some of the best dance scenes in Lisbon, Madrid, Paris, Berlin, Valencia, Amsterdam and London, he soon upgraded by moving to London in 1998 where he sharpened his music skills and studied sound engineering.
This led him to work with some of the best DJs around, like DJ Hype, Zed Bias, Fabio and Grooverider, Mj Cole, DJ Marc (4 Hero), Giles Peterson, Aphrodite and Roni. He also had the pleasure to open shows of some very known names such as Public Enemy, Moby, Tricky, Bjork, Mad Professor, Black Uhuro, Ice T, Thievery corporation etc. In 2002 he went back to Portugal, where he started his own company 24 kilates de som (24 karats of sound), which organized some of the best visited parties in Lisbon.
This Lisboner, Londoner and now Amsterdam based MC is exploring the Dutch dance scene, having started 3 years ago in underground Drum and Bass parties, moving up to work with Girls Love DJs (Dexter) where he works with the likes of Rubywax & MissingLinks, Terry Toner, Philip Young, Tom Trago amongst others.
At the moment he is the resident MC for BED in Hotel Arena (BNN/ Revu magazine), and a frequent guest MC for Wicked Jazz Sounds a well known Sunday party in Amsterdam.
Being the voice of "Blended" at radio Caz! being broadcast every Saturday on national airwave, he also performed his MC and hosting skills on the stage of "Blended on the Beach" and the well known New Years Eve party 2006/ 2007 on the Dam square in Amsterdam on life television (Veronica).
