Hailing from the idyllic South Tirol, DJ Chupacabra is a humble DJ and Producer who is acutely respectful of the world of music. Since starting DJing under his own name where he already counts quality releases on Pareidolia and Subwax Excursions, he has
played clubs in Germany, Portugal, Austria, Spain and of course his home country, expanding his repertoire and cultivating his sound in the process. His experiences lead to the conception of DJ Chupacabra, the audacious UKG alias that allows him to expound his vast creativity and channel his multifaceted loves through auxiliary channels. With releases on Carpet and Snare, RTCT Records and Haŵs, Davide is turning his attention to distinguished labels like Dansu Discs and TimeIsNow for his next forays into the garage domain. Keep your ears peeled for skittered drums and imaginative 2-step rhythms, then you’ll know the Chupacabra is at a party near you.

He is the face of true underground activism in electronic black music in Portugal.
