DJ/Producer & Audio/Mastering Engineer, Pedro Goya soon became a reference in the electronic music spectrum in Portugal. With two solo albums released and more than 18 single Ep’s released on vinyl, Pedro’s now one of the most respected producers in the underground scene. With House and Techno styles as its key production work, we can find his previous releases on such labels as Classic Music Company (Derrick Carter), Music For Freaks (Luke Solomon & Freaks), Brique Rouge, Exun, Kaato Music or OM (Mark Farina).

Timeless references as Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Giorgio Moroder and Stevie Wonder, are a huge influence in everything he produces today.

As a DJ, played at numerous clubs, including the Watergate (Berlin), Moog, Fellini, and Mondo (Barcelona), Sasse (Vienna), Propaganda and Shanti (Moscow), Prozak (Warsaw), Silo (Leuven, Belgium), Hospital (Khabarovsk, Far East Russia) and Dive (Tokyo, Japan).In Portugal clubs as Alcantara-Mar (Lisbon), Maus Hábitos (OPorto), Anti-Pop Music Festival (Viana do Castelo), Lisbon Parade, Capitulo V, Kadoc (Albufeira), Op Art, Paradise Garage and Europa (Lisbon), Maré Alta (Porto), Vinyl and Via Latina (Coimbra), Marginal (Funchal), Mecca and Clubíssimo (Setúbal), among others.

In 2007 he launched Troia Recordings. With a catalog mostly comprised from “unknown” artists, the record label became the happy result of his research for new talents in electronic music.

Currently Troia Recordings is a record label with a defined musical route, having releases on vinyl and digital format.

At the age of 27 and more than a decade connected to electronic music, Pedro’s leaving no room for doubts. Music’s his translated passion in waveforms and an unavoidable name in the Electronic Music Scene.

DJ e produtor, Pedro Goya estabeleceu-se firmemente no panorama nacional da música electrónica.

Na música, declara como grandes influências Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder e Giorgio Moroder, mas o House e o Techno, amores que se tornariam os de sempre, viriam mais tarde por acréscimo, em contactos iniciais com uma "scene" portuguesa que fervilhava nos loucos anos 90.

DJ desde 1997, nunca se contentou apenas em tocar os discos dos outros e as primeiras experiências com a expressão das intenções musicais rapidamente deram lugar a edições em algumas das mais respeitadas editoras mundiais, como a Classic Music Company (de Derrick Carter), Music For Freaks, Brique Rouge, Exun ou OM (de Mark Farina).

Mais tarde, com vista a editar maioritariamente artistas nacionais de qualidade, criou a Troia Recordings, editora em formato físico e digital, entretanto extinta para dar lugar a novos projectos em 2014.

Seja no estúdio ou atrás dos pratos, Pedro Goya continua a dar cartas, com a segurança que o futuro apenas guarda evolução assente num perfeccionismo que é quase obsessão. Das boas.

Troia Recordings is a Portuguese Vinyl/Digital Electronic Music Label based in Lisbon, runned by Pedro Goya.

Troia does not follow any Electronic sub-genre style, and is careless if your music is lookalike Minus, Cocoon, Get Physical or whatsoever Major Labels are releasing at this time.

It's irrelevant if your music was made with latest Ableton Live upgrade, Pro Tools, Logic Pro or an old Amiga Computer. We also don't care if your latest tunes where played & charted on Beatport by all top notch Djs.

We sincerely don't give a f%* about that as an artist/musician platform.

What we ask you for is music, as more misunderstood you might think it is. Wheater you're a superstar dj or not, you'll have the same treatment and respect.

We're here as one. Music as an all.

Troia Recordings is digitally distributed by Bonzai (Belgium)

Troia Recordings | Limited is physically distributed by Straight (Germany) & manufactured at HandleWithCare (Germany)
