Real name: Frederik Holyshewski
Moniker(s): Dado, Deedrah, Federico Baltimore, Synthetic

Dado aka FREDERIC HOLYSZEWSKI repeatedly woos crowds and longtime fans to the beat of his new productions. Ranging from solo projects as Deedrah, as he is known in the circuit since 15 years now, or the most recent band formed little over 2 years ago, the KromeAngels, (Album out soon), he stands to face anywhere between 5 to 30 thousand eager fans on gig!!

Once in the scene in the mid 90 s as a self-made rock band, Vision Quest, which later dissolved, Dado met CHRISTOF DROUILLET with whom he would form the legendary group Transwave. Only 3 months later they released the first album under a small French label Transpact. This was only the beginning, and in only 2 years they reached mind blowing success releasing 3 albums in total. The duo gained first hand experience selling and producing the entire CDs themselves from creating the sleeves, recording the albums, and even directing the first video for the international trance hit “Land of Freedom”. Be prepared for the 4th album by Transwave, though still under construction already receives great feedback from fans all over the globe. The band, more active than ever, performs relentlessly in front of music thirsty dance floors!!

All this experience eagerly propelled Dado to create his first ever studio in a Paris basement. In 97 he created QuestionMark records to form a structure for French and international artists providing not only a label for promotion but also supporting a recording and production system. The first Deedrah album “Self-Oscillation” was released under this label, as well as 3 compilations “The Groovebox”, “ Anologique” and “Digitale”. The first album “Cypher” was released with the cooperation of TWISTED Rds. UK. Under QuestionMarks label Dado worked alongside artists like DJ TSUYOSHI SUZUKI, ASTRAL PROJECTION,DJ SID SHANTI, AVI SPACECAT, TOTAL ECLIPSE and remixed for THE DELTA, HALLUCINOGEN and KILLING JOKE.

As if not enough, Dado created another alias “SYNTHETIC” first releasing the fantastic Metalgear with TWISTED Rds, then releasing the first album on SOLSTICE MUSIC. Here, DANDANdDADO was born bringing to life the epic Diamond Dust.

The Dado snowball picked up momentum growing like an avalanche and he, together with DMT NAKOV and SERGE SOUQUE of Total Eclipse came together to form GBU (The Good, The Bad & The Ugly ) playing the most important festivals of the techno scene: Sonica, The Glade Festival, and Solstice Music Festival in Tokyo. Dado kept busy through contracts with Sony to compose the opening tune and sound effects of the ps2 game Grand Turismo3.

Instantly his presence became known through his sexy melodic beats, Dado inevitably began attracting world-wide attention to his DJ sets and Lives in destinations all over the world, gaining the opportunity to work alongside different talent who still regard him as a master in the engineering and technical aspect of music production…. His talent and knowledge of music is wide spread as his versatility in style. This is reflected in his multiple groups or ‘personalities !!! Soon in Mubito we will also broadcast ‘Synthetic and ‘Federico Baltimore alter egos!! Loyal fans can be pleased to know that he is hard at work with new Deedrah to be released early 2011.check now his new record label kromepressings....
