About

Born to a Cuban father who came to this country when he was 11 years old and mother from the Bronx, New York, one might say Xiques has latin culture running through his blood. His parents met in their mid 20s and played around the United States in a latin spice band called Sugar Cane. His parents were really successful and very talented. Think Pre-Miami Sound Machine. Some of his father's influences include KC and the Sunshine Band, Earth Wind & Fire, Chicago, Mongo Santamaria, Ohio Players, Oscar Peterson, Sammy Figueroa, Chic Corea & Al Di Meola. Some his mother's influences include Barbara Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Natalie Cole, Dina Washington, Leon Tyne Price, Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight and Peggy Lee.

Around the age of 30, they had Xiques, whom was born with some physical challenges therefore they decided to give up their music career to take care of their sick child. Fast forward 33 years later, and Xiques is working hard to continue the tradition that has been running through his veins for his entire life. He has had some challenges along the way, including a car accident that nearly took his life, but is finally carrying on the legacy his parents left him. Xiques' inspirations since his entry into the electronic music scene in the late 90s were DJ Apple, Joeski, Onionz, Johnny Fiasco, Mazi (Audio Soul Project), Nick Holder, Little Louie Vega, Funk D'Void, Kevin Saunderson, Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola, Rino Cerrone, Adam Beyer, Osunlade, DJ Deep, Timewriter, Terry Lee Brown Jr., John Digweed, Sasha and Confucious just to name a few.

Xiques' musical taste is certainly eclectic and changes based on his mood. One thing does remain constant, his love for electronic music, and bringing the best sound to the forefront of the scene. Sit back and enjoy!
