Whether they like it or not, the biggest challenge any musician or producer has to face, regardless of musical type or style, is whether their work can create a path that other artists will follow, or lay the foundation for the work of other artists. ghettohousedrummachine, the Asturian known within the scene as ghettohousedrummachine, is well aware of this.
ghettohousedrummachine is a DJ and producer who has rapidly attained recognition other artists have taken a long time to gain. In his case, it’s not been a matter of chance or coincidence, but the result of his innate and incredible capacity to be prolific, alongside his obsession for perfection.
ghettohousedrummachine uses a variety of aliases to release the diverse artistic sensations which flow through him, these are all characteristics that define his personality and are an intrinsic part of ghettohousedrummachine himself. Producing and performing under different names allows him to concentrate fully on an idea or style to which he is totally faithful, putting aside for a moment sounds and influences that don’t belong in the particular character which he is mutating into at the time.
The result is a knockout. He finds himself, deservedly, among the elite of Hispanic and global techno. He has released huge techno productions that have charted and played by the best DJs in the world.
ghettohousedrummachine has proven himself over and over again a true master of the darkest and hardest-hitting productions, slavishly followed by thousands around the world eager for a glimpse of this elusive master craftsman. For those lucky enough to be present, his is a performance that both inspires and devastates in equal measure, witnessed at Awakenings, Berghain, Tresor, Fuse, Printworks and Concrete to name a few, alongside extensive touring of the USA, South America & Australasia.
The idea to do a 9 to 5 job, even going to school gave ghettohousedrummachine nightmares already when he was a very young boy. His passion was always bigger than his discipline and his dreams were even bigger. He wanted to be really good in something and a little famous which would solve a lot of wishes like Independency, beeing loved by everybody, especially girls and money to have a good live.
Thats why his passion for science, philosophy, electronics, sports and music often lead into complete obsession in one of these things. At the age of 15 he wanted to win the tour de france and cycled 60 to 160 km every day after school but ended his racing career after the first race, which ended up being too violent in his opinion. Then he wanted to take Richie Samboras place and ended up playing guitar for 2 years - 5 hours every day - but it didn't do it for him either. Then he finally discovered his passion he would stick to for longer: Electronic music.
