The Portuguese native has always been surrounded by the world of music. Learning to play the piano and guitar allowed José Diogo Correia to study at the Jazz School of Oporto, going on to then study Engineering and Sound Design at Lisbon. With these tools at his disposal, José moved into the world of minimal techno. Initially a duo started in 2006, by 2010 RE:Axis had become a solo act for Correia’s music. Correia, along with original RE:Axis member Hélder Vasconcelos, created Monocline Records in 2008 to release their work’ Correia is now in full control of the label. RE:Axis has enjoyed support from heavyweights Richie Hawtin and Steve Lawler.
