Hernan Serrao is an Argentinian legend. He started DJing at the tender and impressionable age of 16, he was opening for iconic acts like Grace Jones,Donna Summer, Robin S and Gloria Gaynor in illustrious clubs such as the Buenos Aires News (now known as Crobar Buenos Aires). From there he became a resident in some of Argentina’s most acclaimed dance institutions such as the Super Club, Opera Bay and Club Pacha Buenos Aires. Hernan made many guest appearances in clubs across the country like the South American Music Conference, the Renaissance party at Crobar and Sobremonte in Mar Del Plata. As his sound grew so did his reach and he began playing first across South America in such places as Brazil, Peru, Chile and Paraguay, and then across the globe from London to Amsterdam, and Denmark to Serbia.
With his professional growth came international recognition and Hernan Serrao was invited to play in many cities and many South American´s countries like Brazil, Peru, Chile, Paraguay, and not to forget to mention that Hernan is the only DJ to have played in all editions of the South American Music conference held in Buenos Aires- Argentina.
Hernan was also the first DJ to perform a gig at the exclusive Hotel Unique in Sao Paulo city-Brazil, where, and thanks to the success of the party began to hold events at this location with DJ’s such as Hernan Cattaneo, Lee Burridge, and many more.

Hernan was the first Argentinean DJ’s touring with Global Underground.
Musically he know’s how to combine underground music with the sounds that people expect to hear in a club, being very versatile with the ability to travel from one style to another, from deep house to progressive house, from progressive house to tech house finishing with a high quality energetic sound.
