Ugo N’gan’ga Gitau was born in Canada and grew up traveling throughout East and West Africa. At a young age, Ugo had an instant connection to the rhythms of the music and paid particular attention to the different rhythms, melodies, and drums that create dance music. In 1995, he returned to Canada and found a new home in the Montreal after-hours club scene. Ugo has always had club life in his heart and those years spent in the dark forged what became the world he now depicts through sound. In 1999, he revealed his true musical colors as the now infamous B’UGO, with an eclectic mix of deep dark tech-house and soulful disco. B’UGO went on to a four-year residency with the internationally known deep house series, Therapy. Always looking forward, B’UGO pushes the limits of house and techno with new sounds and influences from world music, pop, rock, hip-hop, and soul. B’UGO’s in your face style keeps your feet firmly glued to the dance floor in a daze of glamor, fierceness and an overdose of madness.
This House aficionado does not let the barriers of genres, sounds or styles get in the way of imagination & originality. B’UGO has the foundation of an oldskool DJ with an ultra modern sound that creates a party everywhere he goes. He is a true “Party Professional”. B’UGO gives a serious work out of your body, mind, and soul on all the sound frequencies in order to elevate and energize.
Don’t be fooled by this funky brother’s flashy attire, he has already established himself as a resident in many Canadian venues and was just named Best DJ in the Montreal Mirror’s Best Of Montreal quite a few times. B’UGO headlines some of Montreal top rated parties in the Queer Loft party circuit, Afterhours Scene, Mainstream and Corporate world.
