JAAKKO is the Progressive Psytrance project of Tiago. He is the founder of Fusion Gatherings, having thrown hundreds of events under his belt in his city Porto & hosting the “crème de la crème” of Electronic Music Artists. His personal interpretation of Psytrance goes into a Deep World, the Dark-Prog Zenonesque w/ a hypnotic tech-ish flavour . A truly psychedelic aesthetic landscape through a mental & physical journey (un)balanced on a sporadic groovy emotional dive.

He has gone Worlwide with gigs in Israel, Goa, Germany, UK, Holland & Morocco in some of the most wicked clubs & outdoor festivals like the BOOM Festival, Psy-Fi, Neopop, Enter/Minus, Freedom Festival or the unlikely Transahara in the distant dunes of the Sahara Desert, highlighted by the Paradisiac “Lagoa das
7 Cidades” in the Azores Islands.

JAAKKO through his events has hosted the likes of Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Dave Clarke, Laurent Garnier,
Loco Dice, Max Cooper, Minilogue, Mathew Jonson, Agents of Time, Matador, Ace Ventura, Tristan, Avalon,
Loud, Perfect Stranger, Emok, Captain Hook, Liquid Soul, Vini Vici & his fellow label buddies, Sensient,
Hypogeo, Kliment, Evil Oil Man, Hellquist & pHaSenVerScHiEbunGeN.

Enough with the talking it’s time to jump in and take the ride …

“I’m always looking for the latest technology to add to my setup, includes multi-track mixing & drum-machine played live.
It can feel quite weird at frst glance but I really love the feeling of the classic drum sounds layering with the wicked
zenonesque progressive grooves”
