Anyone can easily get to know the results but it is the creative process that defines the one who does it. The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Slow J is the obsessive nature of his relationship with music. Born and raised in the city of Setúbal, where he lived until his 8th birthday, he moved homes ten times over the next twelve years passing through places like Lisbon, Cascais, and Alenquer. He found in music constant companionship. Ten years later, this obsession took him to London, where he devoted his time to making music under the pretense of studying Sound Engineering. After deciding to interrupt his studies, he returned to Portugal in 2013 to fully devote his time to musical production, starting by doing an internship at Bigbit Estúdios (Lisbon), where he had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in Portugal's hip hop scene, like NBC and Valete. Inspired by the profound poetry of Sam the Kid and Manuel Cruz, and by the pure energy ride that artist such as Imagine Dragons and Da Weasel take us on, Slow J launched his debut project in April 2015 to whet the world's appetite: “The Free Food Tape” EP. Soon, Slow J became a reference in Portugal's hip hop paradigm, regarded as one of the best artists of this generation and one that could elevate the standards. In March 2017 he launched his first LP, “The Art Of Slowing Down”, which established him as one of the major influencers in current Portuguese music and culture.
