4Rain, also known as Stephan Tavares, is a highly successful DJ and electronic music producer who has earned a seat among the giants of the industry. Composing for Grammy Award-decorated artists, he has climbed global charts, broadcasting his music worldwide and resonating with an audience that truly appreciates his art.
In 2023, he embarked on a world tour comprising over 50 dates. 4Rain, a lover of world cultures, found inspiration in his travels, resulting in numerous collaborations and projects. Among them, "Out of Time" received acclaim on several billboards in Times Square and Miami. Collaborations like "Best Friend" with Kasango, "Light Up" with Lemon & Herb and Dj Vitoto, "Taca na Butchaca" with Mc Gw and Mc Menor do Alvorada, and "Vida" with Mc Delux also marked his productive year.

Once again, 4Rain treated his fans to a musical journey, traversing European, African, and Latin American continents. The essence of his passion for world music traces back to the early chapters of his career.
His story is a captivating adventure that begins in the south of France. In the streets of his small town, he allowed his imagination to flourish by imitating artists, secretly dreaming of the day he could become the voice behind enchanting melodies.

At the age of 20, his dream persisted. Gathering courage, he set out to make his love for music a tangible reality. His first chapter unfolded in the United Kingdom, in London, where he audaciously learned to play the piano while honing his music production skills. However, the harsh reality of life imposed its unrelenting pace, forcing him to juggle between artistic aspirations and the need to earn a living.

Faced with this dilemma, Stephan made a decisive choice. Instead of abandoning his dreams in the face of financial difficulties, he boldly opted for a new path, flying to Canada and marking the second chapter of his career. There, he immersed himself in sound engineering studies. Graduating, strengthened, and ready to conquer the world with his music, he transformed his dream into an inspiring challenge and set off to live his American dream in Miami.
Beneath the Miami sky, he encountered JLV, who became his manager. Combining their skills, they signed their first contract with a label and persevered through the corridors of record companies with unwavering determination. 4Rain faced rejections and difficulties but persisted until the doors of opportunity finally opened.

His career took off with the RnB Pop track "Call Me," propelling him rapidly into the top Shazam charts worldwide, including France and the USA. His work received widespread acclaim in the electronic/pop music space.
In 2018, 4Rain asserted himself with the track "Whatever," in collaboration with Sasha Ogletree, securing a spot among the top 50 electro-pop music videos at the MTV Awards that same year. He then unveiled his solo piece "I Don't Belong," which ranked in global Shazam charts. His singles surpassed 100,000 copies in worldwide sales, sharing his musical inspirations with major international artists.

The unveiling of his collaboration with the talented Nigerian singer Niniola on the Afro-pop track "Disturb Phone" highlighted his ability to elegantly merge genres. Furthermore, his collaborations with artists Atomic Otro Way and Ayo Jay on the enchanting track "Kiss My Lips" strengthened his artistic imprint in the contemporary music landscape.
4Rain has transcended the boundaries of electronic music, earning a global reputation as an artist. With his catchy music and unforgettable stage presence, he has captivated crowds and established himself as one of the most talented artists of his generation.
