Biography of Pier Bucci
Pier Bucci is on a quest to create his own vision of complex atmospheric rhythms. Emerging in the mid 00’s alongside a excitingly talented collection of Chilean electronic acts, Pier began his music career with the pivotal Crosstown Rebels label. This would prove to be a prosperous partnership as Pier delivered an outstanding run of releases between 2004 and 2007 along with the highly acclaimed ‘Famila’ album – one of the highlights of 2005. This success, along with an early release on Cadenza, established him as a unique talent, and developed his personal sound. His take on techno uses classic Latin rhythms and vocals, a love of abstract electronics, and Sheffield bleeps, which is combined with his haunting Andean melodies. Colourful characters zip through Pier’s music, making a distinctive collage of influences, of course always underpinned by solid dancefloor beats.
The fruits of his collaborations with Luciano, bore the Monne Automnne [Lo-Fi Stereo, Germany] and Lucien-n-Luciano album projects for labels such as Peacefrog and Cadenza, Skipsapiens together with Daniel Nieto [u-cover, Belgium; Mutek Rec, Canada], Mambotur with Argenis Brito [Multicolor, Germany], Bucci/Pink Elln together with Tobias Freund [Cynosure Records, Canada] and works with his brother Andres as Bucci [WMF Rec, Berlin; Cynosure Records, Canada] have been equally well received.
Recent developments show an eye for the future and more development. In 2009, Pier launched his own label Maruca Music - which has so far featured his own new original music along with remixes from heavyweights like Baby Ford and Thomas Melchior – and he also has plans to bring back his much loved Mambotur project with Argenis Brito.
