Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
In this Podcast, Get to know more of my sound and my secret weapons.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Honestly, I don’t have a particular favourite. At this particular moment, I can tell you that my track “Can’t Stop” would be the one because it’s from my most recent release. But each of the tracks you have heard here is a track which was my favourite at the exact moment when I played it at Crobar Club, they are all special to me.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
I really liked this set because I was able to try a lot of my new tracks and also play tracks that I really like and that inspire me.
Tell us about your next EP? What have you got coming up?
I honestly don’t know. I’ve been making a lot of music and I even made a great collaboration with Mattia Saviolo that I hope will come out soon. After two months of living in Europe, the return to my country, Argentina, was so full of gigs and so much work that I still haven’t been able to sit down in my studio to create music. I hope to be able to sit down again in the studio to create more as soon as possible. This week my EP “Can’t Stop” was released on Volta Records, Victor Ruiz’s label, which includes two original tracks “Can’t Stop” and “High Voltage” with two remixes by Drunken Kong and Alex Stein.
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Thank you very much for giving me the space to show you the set I recorded at Crobar Club, a mythical club in the city of Buenos Aires. I hope you enjoy it a lot and that you like the new tracks that are not out yet. With much affection, I send you my kindest greetings..
