"Sergio Cabrera has been a great influential figure in the underground rave scene of the early 90s in his native Island of Tenerife showcasing new beats and regularly playing before cheering crowds of old school Hardcore, jungle and Drum and Bass devotees. His humble beginnings in run down warehouses sheds and back gardens saw him gain acceptance and becoming a hot resident DJ in the islands most sought after venues pulling an international crowd to their feet.
Since moving permanently to London to study Audio engineering at the world famous SAE institute, Sergio has expanded his music portfolio into new territories, a clear example of his versatility and vast technical knowledge. Sergio’s collaborations have seen him play live sets in fashion shoots and create the soundtrack to fashion films. As well as his undeniable flare for mixing old school Hardcore with new and exciting beats has seen him taking to the decks at London clubs Pacha, N1 Leicester Square and legendary night Polarise to name a few.
One could say that Sergio has an almost melancholic feel about his musical roots that has manage to filter and influence his more recent creations but that would be to limit and almost voluntarily place an obstacle in the always evolving road of a Dance music artist. True to his innate curiosity and persistent obsession for advances in software applications, Sergio has evolved into a multi-genre producer offering an almost painterly palette of sounds and interesting mixes with a well trained acute sense of hearing, filtering the subtle changes of a polyphonic composition.
We can only Imagine what the future will bring for this Young Spanish producer, knowing that sound is not only composed of frequencies but there are direct psychological and physiological responses associated with sound and knowing that he has only scratched the surface of what is possible for him musically we can expect him to branch out into psychoacoustics and sound installations enabling him to have a strong language of his own.
Eager we wait for his next work, after all, he is interested in the stimulation of our brains, looking to expand responses in our perceptual receptors. Speaking in Sergio’s own words ‘creating music in a studio is great as you know it will create a response, a feeling when heard, but nothing compares the immense feeling of joy I get from playing in front of a crowd that goes wild at the move of my fingertips’"
