Between pixels and beats. Argentina - USA - Spain
Long story short:
Coming from the school of the mid 90's, I was born as a DJ influenced by the sound of producers like Junior Vasquez, the Murk boys, DJ Duke, Nick Holder, MAW, Danny Tenaglia, Pete Heller, Terry Farley, F. Knuckles, D. Morales, Carl Craig, Louie Balo, Joey Negro and Lil Louis just to mention a few.
> Back in Argentina and starting in late 1992 I was Resident DJ @ Latino Club for 7 years.
At the same time, I was also DJing as a guest at many venues in numerous cities including which was my personal fave, EL DIVINO in Mar del Plata.
Around 1995 I started producing my first house tracks and testing them wherever place I was DJing at. I was producer and host of several radio shows.
> Based in Miami - United States - got a residency @ The Womb, South Beach. That was my very first time ever playing for people all over the world.
I keep producing tracks, including a very special one called "flying high" which was even played by "the man" Hernan Cattaneo.
> Got a weekly residency @ W-Lounge in downtown Salt Lake City. I produced another weekly podcast called "White Excursion".
> I became Creative director for a multimedia company in Salt Lake which took most of my time, BUT still with a very tight schedule I continued doing gigs
at different venues in SLC as well as in Park City (until December 2011).
> My mother gets ill :( and move back to Argentina to take care of her.
> Nothing worked out and cancer took her from us late in 2012 and from there. I started putting my life back together.
Inspired by her I produced the track "I wish you were here" released on the German record label: Stencil .
Back in Biz - sort of - I came back to the club scene playing at clubs in Argentinian provinces of La Pampa and Buenos Aires.
- 2014 -
> Moved to Madrid Spain.
Full time freelancer (graphic design, motion graphics, video editing, photography)
I produced original tracks and remixes for several records labels.
(It's kind of funny that - in Oct 2019 - 5+ years later, my remix for Sowieso & Co of "Stencilla" DJ Leo Arg Remix is still on the top ten chart of the label on Beatport)
In summer 2014 I played as resident DJ at Sky Underground in Benidorm.
Had my weekly spot at the Ibiza Essentials radio show for about two years.
I produced my own two hour show at Soul radio where the second hour was mixed by a guest DJ.
I recorded exclusive sessions for radios in South America.
I was, and still am, a regular guest DJ at Berlin Essentials.
As an extra note in - as a DJ - I tried everything in relation to technology, performing with different kind of set ups, including turntables, Traktor DJ, CDJs, Ableton, but nothing feels better that a piece of vinyl.
Having a great collection of classics records - house, deep, tech, techno - and the hottest new releases on vinyl, I'm posting almost every week new sessions on Soundcloud.
If you dig my stuff, I'm open for booking.
