Rui Maia is a Portuguese musician, producer and DJ. In 2002 he co-founded the post-punk band X-Wife with João Vieira (DJ Kitten), where he plays the synthesizers. Lover and collector of music, Rui Maia began DJ’ing in 2004 and keeps a regular schedule with performances a bit all over the country, spinning a sound that leans more toward the groove of disco, house and techno. Rui Maia has gone back to recording under his own name with “Trinity of Thunder” EP, released under his recently created label, Belong Records, which has already received the support of artists such as Laurent Garnier, Bottin, Lauren Flax, Tensnake and Kasper Bjorke. Closing out the 2016 edition of Westway LAB, Rui Maia will present his DJ Set and Live Act, accompanied by a series of synthesizers and electronic instruments.
