What music did you listen to as a child?
Hi guys, first of all thank you for having me!
My earliest memories of music or maybe the most memorable moment that I remember is my father showing me all of the record collection at home, I was maybe around 7 or 8 years old. Very broad and varied genres, from Supertramp, Led Zeppelin, to James Brown, John Scofield, Sting, and on my mother’s side it was more Schumann, Mendelssohn, Ravel.
When was the first time that you realised that you liked electronic music?
I don’t really remember an exact moment, but i do remember that when I was around 9-11 years old I played a lot guitar and wanted to do a band, but in my hometown it was kind of hard to find friends from my age to do it, so I probably paused that idea, and then later at some point when I started to produce music on my own it made more sense to do a solo electronic oriented project.
When was the first time you saw a DJ in a club?
I guess the first time I saw a DJ was in my hometown in Santa Rosa, La Pampa, Argentina. There was a small club called ‘Sky’, which every saturday would host DJs and would gather from 100 to 200 people. When i started going out I guess I saw one of the resident djs play and the vibe caught me and slowly I started making my way into it. At some point I got invited to play there and that was my first gig.
Which producers/artists/acts inspire you?
There are so many great artists out there. In the club electronic field producers that always stands out for me and I follow are Guy J, Rodriguez Jr, Frankey & Sandrino, Frank Wiedemann, Sébastien Léger, Matthew Dekay, Tim Green, and many others.
What was the last album that you downloaded/bought?
Last one I bought it’s a new album from Joram Feitsma, great music and great guy!
What is your current production and DJ set up like?
For production i have Focals monitors, UAD soundcard, Moog Minitaur, Virus Ti Snow, Elektron Digitone, Some guitar pedals for processing. For performing nowadays I use 3 or 4 Pioneer CDJs.
What releases do you have on the horizon?
I’m producing new original music to play when we have a gig again. Also i’ve just released a new track which is special to me called ‘Lazos’ on Gorje Hewek’s new label Peace Symphonies. For the near future there’s a collaboration I did with Lost Desert & Hermanez that we hope to release in the summer.
Where can we hear you perform?
Before the pandemic i had plans to come back to tour Canada, also play in the US and Brazil so hopefully it will be possible to make it happen soon.
Tell us more about the podcast you made for Balance?
The mix has the same approach I have on all my studio mixes, which is try to create a coherent story from beginning to end, but this time I guess the music is a bit more club oriented or less deep compared to other of my mixes. I like a lot of different genres so it was nice to showcase something a bit different this time.
