It is hard to explain who Oskar LaDemonio Dj is, unless you first attend to the long and intense past of Oskar LaDemonio, the character. Former Fine Arts and Design student, tattoo artist, piercer, presumable ex-transvestite, promoter and animator, Oskar has been for more than one decade close to nightlife agitation and multiple creative fields. His come and goes have put him into an active role in both Barcelona's and Madrid's night scenes, as well driven him to promote his work all over Spain and in several European places. Member of famous and acclaimed Xtravaganza's House, his career has been part of the most outstanding pop and kitsch underground Spain's scene, as well as part of the most intense and rough clubbing scene of the nineties and what's been the 21st century up to now. A specific mention should be done to PutiClub, a party that included live acts, Dj sets and performances and that under his command made the most delicate and delicious nightlife offer for a couple years in Barcelona, nowadays considered historical patrimony and still being inspirational and role model for new-coming initiatives. His close relationship with producers, Dj's, singers and promoters has lead him to accomplish an infinite backup of sound and musical references that include from the origins of electronica and punk up to the most advanced IDM, or the infinity of waves derived from techno, house, minimal and electro. The result is an honest and conscious capability to create ad-hoc sets, with concrete lines but multiple nuances and shades, according to the particular party, audience, venue and mood. Nowadays, totally and exclusively committed to his impeccable and versatile sessions, Oskar LaDemonio invests most of his time and energy in updating an already infinite collection of tracks, as well as improving his technique, a skilful one when it comes to dance-floor tempo managing in tune with the audience. Clean cuts, alternation of classics with the most recent global production, and a risky pitch, portray sets that hypnotize today's clubbers and cause empathy and admiration awakening from his professional colleagues and from the most exigent historical users of clubbing.
