Snna and Nacho Arauz decided to join forces in 2011 and started to work together under the name of Los pastores. It began with a long but worthwhile journey. In 2012 they were already performing at a few parties at WMC (Miami/USA), in that same year, they started to build their own record label, named Oblack Label. The first record they released in both digital and vinyl format -EP “ Other Sentido”- was backed and played by artists such as Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Mirko Loko and Ricardo Villalobos during some of their most important sets. By the year 2013, they created the concept of Oblack Label Night, organizing and promoting big nights around Spain to build up their own label and sharing the booth with some other label partners such as Yaya, Phil Weeks, Tuccillo, Andrew Grant, Tato, Filsonik or Neverdogs. Oblack Label Nights have taken place in venues such as Ibiza´s Destino, No Name, Sankeys or City Hall in Barcelona.
Their hard work in the studio as producers has already payed off. They have colaborated with internationally known artists from the likes of Darius Syrossian, Luke Solomon, Tuccillo, Jay Haze and Djebali. During summer 2014, Los Pastores released EP "Smoke Game" that became one of the most played tracks at DC10 Ibiza, along with Apollonia, The Martinez Brothers and Catz N Dogz.
Following that summer, yet more accomplishments were aquired, like playing for their very first time at "El Row", one of the most important festivals in Spain. Only months later, they warmed up the performance of French Apollonia in Valencia. Not only did Apollonia' start to play Los Pastores's productions, but also with VIVa Music big boss, Steve Lawler.
For what remains of 2015 and going into 2016 is geared up to be full of remixes and notorious collaborations with first line labels. Some upcoming hot releases on their own label, and also for the very first time, Los Pastores will edit on ( djebali ), one of the most relevant and respected labels on the French scene.
