Rado launched into his career in Sydney (Australia) back in 2004 with instant and impressive moments. In the immediate years to follow, Rado flourished at residencies in leading locations across Sydney. His abbreviated list of DJ haunts includes the city’s top super club Home and the giant halls at Sydney Mardi Gras' Sleaze Ball, Fox Studios plus week to week at Manacle, Arq, Midnight Shift, The Phoenix and Colombian.

Fans favoured his performance style as traversing the genres of progressive, house, tribal, tech, & deep-house with rare effortlessness, swiftly creating an energetic and effective fusion of accessible and underground sounds. Unfortunately for his Sydney fans, Rado returned to his home continent in 2008, setting up his base in the iconic dance hub Amsterdam. Fortunately for the European fans, Rado is thriving and in demand in Western Europe.


His focus on a rhythmic twist of house & tech led in 2009 to his residency at BEAR-NECESSITY, and pushing deeper in boutique rooms at Club Church, Hard On and The Web.

Rado was an early advocate of the digital revolution - a pioneer of DJing on CDs when most jocks insisted vinyl was the future - and now embraces unrestricted digitalism via Traktor software in order to enjoy the freedom of remixing on the fly as he adds vocals & beats in his DJ sets.

On tour, it's all killers, no fillers. Catch Rado working the hotspots at ADE (Amsterdam), Gay Village (Rome), Wonderland (Zurich), Greenkomm (Cologne), UC (Frankfurt), Naughty/Hunkut (Brussels), and Madbear (Madrid), or on air on Sorry Shoes Global Radio Shows (, totaldjwebradio, cyberbeatfm, Hawaii).

Since 2011 Rado has been producing and remixing with Cologne based Mike Kelly, for which he created the production alias Eastnwest.
Their remix of “Don’t” for Londoners Tom Marchant and Lizzie France blew the clubs away and was the top Beatport 2012 download for the label Sorry Shoes in Germany. Next up they tackled Barcelona’s finest on Nacho Chapado & Smaz feat. Patricia Leidig "Trust In The Universe" (Guareber Recordings). Later Rado & Mike joined DJ Mike Jayy and violinist Dylan Naylor to create an epic string version of Giangi Cappai's Alma Matris classic "Circuito" (Mantra Vibes).
Most recently Rado & Mike remixed Tom Stephan's cult cut re-presented as Ben Manson & Gerald Henderson - "Magic Orgasm" (Twisted Records). The first original production came out in 2015 on Hoxton Whores’ label Whore House: Voltaxx & Mike Kelly & Eastnwest featuring Sua Amoa “I’m In Lust”
