Amador’s fame started in 1997 when he penned the song House Music, featuring the line “not everyone understands house music, it’s a spiritual thing, a body thing, a soul thing”, spoken over a hypnotic pulsating beat, which consequentially became a seminal dance classic. It went on to become a global hit and secured Amador an album deal with Deep Dish’s Yoshitoshi label. However, it was his next single “Rise” that proved his appeal as entered the UK Top 20 giving him exposure as an international class DJ with him performing at famous club venues like Ministry of Sound, The Queen, Centro Fly, Crobar, Stereo as well as Pacha & Space in Ibiza. Based on his success, he set up a second studio in Amsterdam in 2003 where he continued productions for Defected, Nero, and Yoshitoshi.
