The CONDUIT // 033 – Andres Caballero

// Andres Caballero //

Andres hails originally from Ecuador but bounces around the world as a professional skateboarder and vagabundo. We love this guy, and we think his label (Anusual) and his music or something special. There are obvious Crosstown Rebels references but as run through a South American blender of rhythms and attitude. We like that Caballero’s music is hard to define – is it nu disco, house, electro? –  and we also like that it is the funkiest sound out there right now. Caballero is definitely an artist to watch right now.  – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Andres Caballero was born in Guayaquil Ecuador in 1979 from a Spanish father and an Ecuadorian mother, since young he was introduced into music through his siblings. At the young age of 6 started taking piano lessons for 3 years.In the age of 12 started realizing, he has singing skills, took lessons and learned to play the guitar and drums. He soon added a sampler and turntable to his equipment and started exploring electronic music. At the same time his brother was producing electronic music, mainly influenced by Depeche Mode and Techno Pop of the 80ís. At the age of 16 he started experimenting in electronic music with his brother and Jose Elias Wated, one of the main influences in the ecuadorian electronic scene; he started learning how to scratch and to mix. By the age of 20 he had the skills to use his brotherís equipment and got together with Alessis Doppler to create a small Project called BBD where he started experimenting with the minimoog in a more focused scale.. From there he also focussed on skateboarding, which came up to ESPN coverage. He moved to Europe, to deepen his connections in the electronic scene and advance his production skills. He went into the studio with Ronald Christoph (Berlin,Germany) and things started to get serious and realizing that there is a path in electronic music for him. Since that day he is working hard on his career. Developing music and experimenting with mixing he catapulted himself to play live without having that much of live experience, therefore developed his own unique style and sound. He took matters in his own hand . Living in Barcelona, Spain now, he founded Anusual Media (Corporate Web/Graphic Design & Visual/Video Production) and Anusual Records to give a platform to talented Artists he has met, and to use his experience and contacts he gathered over the years. This has generated gigs for him in D.f. -Mexico, Graz – Austria, Hotel ME Barcelona and so on. His first E.P. sold on platforms like itunes, Juno, etc. made the music saga get serious, playing from house in all its range, to other sides of electronic music and unlimited on posibilities of story.

The CONDUIT // 030 – Diego Moreno

Download

// Diego Moreno //

For the past year we have had the pleasure of watching Barcelona’s Digital Delight and Sultry Vibes crew grow in to something of an international sensation. We featured Sishi Rösch earlier in The CONDUIT series and now turn to Diego Moreno, hot off his sizzling remix of Lady Blacktronika’s Good Traxx EP, for another blast of what they like to call sleazy funk. Moreno brings all the different elements together of retro dance music we like and combines it with many of the things we like about today’s dance music for something unique and party friendly. We expect even bigger things from Moreno in 2012.   – Sean-Michael Yoder
