Music is present in the lives of most people, daily; and electronic music for many of them.

So, perhaps his interest in Electronic Music was traced in the same way by many artists; there is not much that makes him "different" in having been influenced by names like Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kitaro ... Not least because many of the people who claim to "like Electronic Music" had contact with some of these names in some way...

Perhaps, like him, many people when they were children also "scratched records" at home, without having a good idea of the respectful art of being a DJ. Recording songs from the radio on tape decks, collecting CDs ... None of this makes him different among many people of his generation.

So what makes Him different and unique? Electronic Music as a life purpose is restricted to only a few humans.

“Basically, I always tried to find a type of sound that I defined as “spatial” or the kind of sound that fills a place with fluctuating details and a variety of feelings”. (Soney Souza)

In 1996, Robert Miles released "Children", a work that would become an absolute success, given its successful worldwide repercussion. At this time, Soney was sure that there was something special, there was something different about that kind of sound; there began an incessant search for deep identification, restricted by the difficulties of access to information. But when there is a greater purpose, interest is present and difficulties become opportunities. From Jarre and Vangelis to Robert Miles, from Paul Van Dyk and Paul Oakenfold to Sasha & John Digweed, more than a culture, more than an identification - a life purpose was developed. In the form of Trance, in the form of Progressive House, in the form of marked percussions, in the form of Capoeira, of Brazilianities and Africanities. It is necessary to remember that Electronic Music as a purpose of life is restricted, in fact, to a few people.

The arrival of the 2000s and the facilities of the Internet contributed to an even greater depth of this purpose, because, throughout his career, it is safe to say that Soney is an expert in what moves him; Tech-Trance, Hard Trance, Hardstyle, Progressive Trance, Progressive House, Tribal House... It's possible to say that it's more than musical knowledge - it's a defined process, it's an identity - it's a purpose.

This intensity has led him to be more than any possibility imaginable. From friends' parties in 1999 to the most recent days, there are more than two decades of dedication, playing and making that "sound from the space"; his releases include labels like IN2U, AIMEC Music, Transensations, Objektiv, Qubic, Election Radio, Electronic Nation, Argentina Records and Pantano Beat. He directed national and international radio shows, in places that are a reference for Progressive House, such as Buenos Aires. Many clubs in his hometown and other cities in Sao Paulo and Santa Catarina recognized it. Furthermore, in 2016, his dedication made him resident of Club 9/11 and Cafe VS, in Tallinn, Estonia; at the same time he created the label Progressive House Brasil to boost this style in Brazil and attract more people who still didn’t know or didn’t find references about the scene and the music in Brazil and in December of the same year, he had a mix elected as "Mix of the Month" by the British portal Decoded Magazine. Between 2018 and 2019, he was selected by Costa Crociere and had his work presented in exotic places in Africa and the Middle East and later in Europe. He was recently designated as resident DJ and head of entertainment at Planet Hollywood Malta.

What makes it different and unique is His purpose in life-it is "to be Electronic Music". This is definitely the gift of only a few of us.
