The CONDUIT // 029 – Dj Ignacio

// Dj Ignacio //

A Spaniard living in Bristol, Ignacio is a gifted journalist plying his words for Mixside, one of Spain’s most important electronic music magazines. We’ve had many great conversations back and forth about music and art, finding much common ground. But it is the DJ mixes he comes out with – melodic, rich, and loaded with unreleased gems that really caught out attention. His selections reflect that of Bristol’s thriving music scene with an intelligent refinement that has us constantly pushing the pause button to scan his track selection in a feeble bout of trainspotting – usually to find out it’s some exclusive secret weapon. Ignacio’s level of consistancy and knowledge led us to finally invite him to make a mix for The CONDUIT podcast series. – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

I was born in Lugo, a little city of Galicia, Northwest of Spain, in 1984. In love with music since I was very young, I learned to play guitar by myself when I was a teenager. Music has always been my great passion and my early influences go from Depeche Mode to Guns’N’Roses, from Pink Floyd to Mike Oldfield. When I was 16 I was introduced to electronic music by some of my friends and, since then, I had had a deep and long relationship with it. I started DJing in 2005 at some well-known clubs in Spain as Superclub, Global Club, Reno, Bleep, festival such as Entroido Quente, some raves and private parties. I also developed my passion for writing in Mixside.com, one of the most important Spanish websites about electronic music. In August 2008, one of my sets was selected as a podcast for the label Turbo Recordings, which encouraged me to go on mixing. In September 2009, I moved to Bristol (UK) to continue growing as a dj, journalist and also give my first steps in the field of music production and promotion… Since my arrival in the UK I have collaborated with radio-shows as Tech Republic (Hub Radio) and DJing at Headrush Nights as a periodic resident. I have had the pleasure to share booth with great DJs and producers such as Max Cooper, Perc, Tom DeMac, Sebastien Leger or Samuel L. Session. My electronic music influences ranged from early disco music, Chicago House, Acid House, Detroit Techno to the latest Europen electronic music trends.

The CONDUIT // 023 – Briski

Download

// Briski //

Briski does the Re:Body parties in San Francisco along with Nolan Haener and is really bringing the mid-tempo, disco influenced sound back to the SF underground – right where it belongs. These guys even had Art Department out our way long before the album blew up and the duo became ART DEPARTMENT and that’s what put Briski on our radar. This guy represents the kind of laidback, low key, in-the-know kinda musical vibe that we’ve come to love and respect in our fellow Northern Californians and here he offers us a sweet, funky mix to kick the summer off in fine style.    – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Briski is that short tan kid you’ve seen around your town cutting a rug, djing parties, and promoting undergrounds. Whether it be in Leeds/London England , Dallas Texas, Miami Florida, or San Francisco, he strives to inspire and be inspired by the surrounding underground music scene. He has since reconnected to his original roots in San Francisco, where he now resides and involves himself in the same activities, now at new levels. With his nu classic taste in House/Techno/Disco, he has been a resident within Rythmatik; an ongoing House party thrown in SF, Miami and Seattle, and has moved on to his new creation Re:body, a SF based underground extravaganza. He also threw an eclectic b-side warehouse party called VHS(with guest Paul T) but nowadays has mainly been involved in the new project, Re:body(with last guests being Linkwood & Art Department). The energy and fresh vibe he brings to the turntables has brought him in front of crowds at numerous parties in Dallas( playing with the Cosmic Cocks, Maetrik, Egyptian Lover and Doc Martin), the Bay Area(playing with the Djs like Jeno, Sammy D, Conor, Solar) and at more undergrounds soon to be coming. He would agree that “hype is whatever”, so just let the vibe speak for itself.
