Berlin based and Johannesburg born and bread DJ and composer Renato Rodriguez
has been in the dance music industry for over a decade.
Starting off his journey Renato got his hands on his rst turntable at the tender age of 12. Being an obvious calling his first gig came shortly after and has been DJing professionally since 2011.
Once this ball got rolling there was no holding Renato Rodriguez back, hosting well respected under- ground events all over Johannesburg, South Africa, headlining and supporting some of the biggest names in the industry including Muui, Charles Webster, Matt Tolfrey, Tricks, Jesus Gonsev, Jesus Pablo, Jullian Gomes, Roger Gerressen, Bas Amro, Pig & Dan, Dis & Dat, ATFC and Dr Dru to name a few, while performing at South Africa’s biggest festivals and most recently
at Burning man United States.
With his fast rising success behind the DJ booth, he was not done yet. His next step in his profes- sional career was composing his own content. In true Renato Rodriguez fashion it didn’t take long for his debut release on a highly regarded label L’enfant, and he has most recently released on Paranoid Dancer, Deepwit Recordings, Just Move Records and Chocolat Records.
In most recent projects Renato Rodriguez launched Chocolat Records, an electronic music label co owned with Miguel Tavares. In this all but exciting venture the label promises to release pres- tine content with artists signed globally.
