Over8 was born in Philadelphia, USA in 1984, moving to Portugal at the age of 9. He noticed early that music was his passion. His first experience as a musician came with producing electronic music at the age of 19.
In 2005 he goes to Lisbon to study Music Production at etic_ (Escola Técnica de Imagem e Comunicação) in Cais do Sodre.
Shortly afterwards he got his first turntables and converted his room into a provisional studio.
Feeling the need for Djing, in 2009 over8 starts his Dj fase. Later he was found by "Redukt" that serves as a concept music label, artist management, event organisation & booking agent.
