Claudio Silva aka D-Mented was born in 1994 in Tavira, Algarve - Portugal and he soon began developing his taste for electronic music. In 2005 had his first contact with psy trance when he started going to parties organised by "theo" who was one of the founders of Nostradamus.

D-Mented, sometimes called "Ninja of the Faders" presents you a night-time Full'On sound with aggressive bass lines, synths from other "worlds" letting the audience travel further, creating a mood of euphoria.

In 2012 he started playing in various parties in Portugal where he has already shared the stage with some well-known national and international names such as Absolum, D-Maniac, The Dark Face, Tryambaka, Juggling, Blazing Noise, Logic Bomb, Sidhartha, among others.
