Tell us about your journey into dance music, when did you first fall in love with it?
We grew up in Buenos Aires, where electronic music has always played a huge role on the radios, at the big raves, and the festivals — like Creamfields for example.
And when did you start making it, what sounds and DJs and labels and parties inspired you?
We started producing in 2013, leaning towards melodic techno with a progressive sound. At that time, we were listening to a lot of releases from Innervisions, Drumcode, and Sudbeat, and DJs like Oliver Huntemann, Laurent Garnier, Adriatique, Dubfire, Tiga, Maceo Plex… everything really. The idea was always to nourish ourselves with everything we could. As for electronic parties in Mexico, we always went to or played at the BPM, Sonar, and ADE…
And what is your own sound, what makes your music unique?
That’s always the question… How to define our style… we never know exactly. We always say it’s a world fusion with groove. We don’t have a closed sound. We always fuse instruments, styles, old and new sounds… We just want to create something different.
Where is your best environment as a DJ? A small dark club or a huge outdoor festival stage? Late at night for the weirdos or early so you can play slow and eclectic etc etc?
The nice thing about electronic music and so many years of playing is that it allows us to experiment in all these different places and enjoy each in their own ways. Ultimately, it’s about the connection with the people,and that energy is what makes the party itself. In general, we like being outdoors — on the beach is best. We don’t like the DJ booths that are 20 meters from the dance floor because you lose a certain connection with the people.
Your new E.P. “Hypnos” on Scorpios Music makes reference to Spanish and Latin culture. Talk to us about that?
We always try to give some kind of Latin touches to our tracks. We have worked with a few Cuban instrumentalists for a while and love what they bring to the music. On Hypnos, Nelson Williams is on percussion and Daniel Herranz Gomez recorded those magical flamenco guitar parts. You can really hear how passionate these instrumentalists are.
Did you ever formally learn piano and stuff or are you self trained?
We mostly trained on our own. We are not pianists, but we are passionate.
What advice would you give yourself as a young artist that you have learnt since you started?
Work hard in the studio every day and take the time you need to get inspired… but please, always take care of your ears. You don’t realize how much you strain them until something happens.
What else are you working on right now?
We are practicing a lot with the band for our new live show for the summer, and we’re doing some remixes for friends and other artists. In between, we are always working on new tracks to be released.
