// Audioelectronic //

Audioelectronic is the nom de plume of Nude Photo Music owner Gustavo Lanzas. Formerly a well-respected San Francisco DJ, producer, and promoter he now lives in Portland running one of the most consistently on-point techno labels on the West Coast. He’s comfortable in just about any style from electro to dub but seems to do best making shaded Detroit techno influenced tracks with complex melodies. His support of VinylJunkie PR has been tremendous and his intuitions and opinions are always spot-on providing a framework for me to be base my own business decisions and strategies on. We asked Audioelectronic to provide a mix of his own material as well as that of his label to provide some much needed exposure for one of our favorite labels and producers.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Audioelectronic is the alter ego of Portland-based producer and live performer Gustavo Lanzas. Originating from the San Francisco Bay Area, Gustavo has been writing and performing electronic music since 1990. A veteran producer with a deep knowledge of the dance-floor classics, Gustavo connects the roots of electronic dance music to the sound of today. His production skills have provided production/engineering assistance to artists on Ghostly, Traum, and Sentrall.

As a live performer or DJ, Gustavo has shared the stage with many electronic music luminaries – Disco D(r.i.p.), Twerk, Sutekh, Kit Clayton, Soul Oddity, Legowelt, Alan Oldham, Plaid, Broker / Dealer, TLR, Cosmic Force, John Selway, and many more.

As the head of Nude Photo Music, Gustavo now has a showcase to present his vision of dance music – from his studio, and also from talented collaborators and artists.

Coming from San Francisco’s explosive early 90′s rave scene, Gustavo began performing live electronic music as part of Protolab. Later, venturing into Jungle / Drum & Bass, Protolab is widely credited as the first Bay Area Jungle live PA.

In the late 90′s, after organizing some of the first all-electro underground parties in San Francisco, Gustavo teamed up with Jim Gourgoutis, and launched Cybrid. With releases on Belief Systems and Exact Science, Cybrid established themselves on the vanguard of the electro scene, defining what would become the sound of the San Francisco underground at that time.

In the early 00′s – residencies at long-running techno/electro club Impulse and at :Code at the DNA Lounge quickly followed. Gustavo became a regular DJ at numerous other clubs and parties in San Francisco, including Minimal Mondays, Scatter, Drum Machine Museum, and more.

Gustavo lives in Portland, Oregon, and dedicates his time to his family, music, riding bikes, and his business endeavors.

The CONDUIT // 008 – Craft

Download

// Craft //

Craft was introduced to me via Derek Marin and has to be one of the true gentleman of techno. He’s always polite, energetic, and enthusiastic. He’s been making his own tracks for the past decade, hosting the ultra popular Twice as Proper events in New York City, and currently holding things down in Playa del Carmen, Mexico bringing his events south of the border. This mix is one of a warehouse full of live recordings documenting DJ Craft, explaining why the guy is so damn hard to get in touch with, he’s ALWAYS DJ’ing a gig somewhere. As such, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better jock in terms of technical skills and this mix is no exception.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

CRAFT (Daniele Ciocio) – Born in NYC, bought his technics 1200’s & Vestax mixer at age 14 with his own savings. Taught himself the skill of beat matching and studied the art of blending tracks smoothly to perfection with persistence. Began producing music in 1999 and, to this day, music production is done under the name “Craft Music Productions”. He dj’s 5 to 10 times per month on average in the NYC underground minimal scene with the Twice as Proper Sessions crew. He evolved from the old Vinyl-only days to the CDJ’s of all types, and now performs live with his all-in-one DJ workstation M-Audio Torq Xponent. Craft has already traveled with the controller to Europe for his Italy Dj tour in various cities and also recently came back from an incredible Costa Rica DJ Tour with Onda Skillet, covered by much media attention (major radio, TV and internet). Furthermore, Craft co-created the movement “Twice as Sweet” with Shadi which then became “Twice as Proper Sessions” with an impressive near 200 events and counting in the past 4 years alone with quite an illustrious list of guest DJ bookings. Also, Craft created and designed the “Party People” T-Shirt which has a history of its own…

The CONDUIT // 007 – Signal Deluxe

Download

// Signal Deluxe //

If you would have told me at the beginning of this year that two of my best friends in this biz would be the husband and wife techno/dubstep duo Signal Deluxe I’d have laughed and shook my head in disbelief. Based in Mexico City, I’ve never worked with such sincere and devoted artists in my life. I am consistently impressed with their own releases, the releases they put out on their label Blaq (which they run in conjunction with their friend Soundspace, another prominent North American artist), not to mention the new dubstep/electronica band Guajira they are in. But it’s the couple’s vast knowledge of music and indefatigable optimism that has really cemented our bond and their mix for The CONDUIT is an excellent showcase of Signal Deluxe’s funkier side. Hopefully we can have them back in the Spring after their debut album drops on Ombligo to show off some of their amazing dubstep cuts as well.  – Sean-Michael Yoder
