As well as remaining eternally popular in his home country, Portuguese producer and DJ Diego Miranda has enjoyed another busy year on the international circuit, taking his big room energy to festival stages at Tomorrowland, Oniria and ADE. This summer also marked a major milestone for Miranda as he became the first Portuguese DJ to have a weekly residency in Ibiza, with his own party 'Diego Miranda & Friends' at Bora Bora.
Miranda has also been busy in the studio during 2022. After the success of last year's dynamic collab 'More Power' he teamed up once again with Vini Vici on the psy-trance banger 'Esta Si', featuring Chimo Bayo, and also dropped ‘Tokyo’ with Cøde and ‘Oh My God’ (with the French football player Djibril Cissé) on Smash The House. He’s also been making strides in the digital realm — he released ‘Moonlight’ on Purple Fly, the first NFT label based in Hong Kong, and was also invited to be part of the Djenerates Superstars NFT collection, alongside the likes of Carl Cox, Luciano, Dubfire and Benny Benassi.
