Nuno Costa began his ventures into electronic music in 2008 with his Sinner moniker, and with it he created Warface, a local crew and promoter focused on dubstep, drum ’n’ bass, and UK garage.
In 2013 he kickstarted his new project, VIL, focusing mainly on techno, electro, breaks, and house music. His debut EP came in early 2015, when Portuguese label Extended Records picked him up for a release. Soon after, he released on Lewis Fautzi’s “Faut Section” imprint and on the legendary techno imprint Synewave New York, run by Damon Wild.
VIL’s refined taste and set building ability has already earned him a place at some of the best clubs in the country, of which Lux Frágil, Gare, and Ministerium are included, and is a regular presence at many of the country’s festivals as well.
Fast forward to 2018, where alongside Portuguese artists Temudo, menosdois, and Osse, he creates Hayes, a collective focused on showcasing the distinct output of its artists through vinyl and digital releases. Already counting with two releases since its inception, their music has already been played and supported by the likes of DVS1, Etapp Kyle, Truncate, Jeroen Search, Ben Klock, Shlomi Aber, and many more players within the scene.
Within a few months of the first Hayes releases, VIL has already scored a track on Ben Sims’ “Tribology” Compilation, a release on Shlomi Aber’s “Lost Episodes”, and a split record with fellow Lisbon artist Vox99.
VIL’s most recent project, Driven, sees him venture into quicker and deeper house tracks, permeated by dubby excursions.
