UK Red Bull Thre3style Champion
- "Santero is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the UK scene in recent years, with a rapidly growing discography, a new record label and the sort of skills behind the decks that saw him crowned UK Red Bull Thre3style champion in 2010"
London-based Santero started out cutting his teeth at legendary Nottingham nightclub The Bomb, initially as resident at one of the biggest club nights in the country, Detonate, spinning all manner of hip hop, reggae, funk & disco alongside legends like Jazzy Jeff & Grandmaster Flash. He was soon a regular on the Midlands circuit, and moved to Stealth as soon as that opened, with both a weekly and monthly residency there. Gradually he returned to the house music, taking hip hop's holistic approach and playing whatever tracks suited the tempo and feel of a set. Before long he was playing everywhere from Fabric to Gatecrasher, alongside such diverse artists as Diplo, Claude Vonstroke & Riva Starr.
In 2010 this grounding in musical open-mindedness paid off, beating the likes of Oneman & Martelo to become the UK Red Bull Thre3style Champion, returning the following year alongside DJ Yoda & Charlie Sloth to showcase and judge on the 2011 Thre3style tour.
2011 saw the launch of his record label Weird Science alongside regular studio partner Pete Jordan, which straight away garnered support from house legends such as Robert Owens & Etienne De Crecy amongst many others.
Santero is part of a new breed of talent emerging from the UK. With versatile skills across the board he is on track to make his mark on any dance floor and is poised to take 2012 by storm.
