My name is Carlos Llanos, I am originally from Lima, Peru. I started dj’ing when I was 19 at a club that plays new wave, gothic, industrial and 90s back in my hometown, thanks to Kike “La Oveja” , a popular DJ in Peru, who taught me everything I know. After moving to Miami I became a resident DJ at Soho Lounge and also made the rounds at the Kitchen Club, SpiderPussy, Circa 28, Sin Events parties, Buck 15 and many other venues around Miami playing mostly 80′s goth, Indie, electro and new wave. In addition, I have guest dj’ed on WVUM’s Electric Kingdom Live and Vamos a la Playa.
After meeting a fellow Peruvian music collector, Gio Ardito, who introduced me to Italo Disco, more underground dance music, and also to Romulo Del Castillo (Schematic Records) another fellow Peruvian-my musical taste changed. In 2007, the 3 of us decided to create a party called Peaches and Prunes, with the idea of bringing something different to miami and featuring local djs with the same passion for underground dance music.
During this time, I started collecting mostly Italo and obscure dance music and became greatly influenced by Flemming Dalum, I-F and David Vunk.
What I like to play now is italo disco, new wave, dark disco, electro, deep house and industrial. I enjoy creating mixes that weave together different styles of music with the sole purpose of making you dance.
With my mixes I want to create a timeless compilation, passing through different decades from the 70′s to the present, without having you realize it.
