OSCAR MULERO [DETUND*, ESP, Tresor, Warm Up, Pole Records]
Oscar Mulero Djs career has been as prolific and long lasting as the development of dance music. As a key figure in this evolution,Oscar has always absorbed new trends and kept his finger on the pulse of electronic dance music, from the end of the 80â€™s right up to the present day. It is impossible to understand the phenomenon of this DJ in Spain without taking into account his tireless work behind the decks for more than a decade. Oscar began as a DJ at the end of the 80â€™s in Madrid, at the most experimental clubs such as Impossible, Capital, Kitch and Babia playing Gothic Rock and EBM, the most important styles at the time. In the 90s he began to play at the legendary club New World (Madrid), the most influential after-hours. By the middle of the 90s he helped to set up and run The Omen, a club which quickly became the most important place for hypnotic dance in Spain. The closures of this legendary club in 1995 maked a change in direction. He began to play all around Spain and gradually distanced himself from his characteristic sound he had previously favoured and moved towards a more basic minimal techno influenced by artists such as Joey Beltram and the new Detroit sound of Jeff Mills. Oscar has become an icon, the maximum exponent of the hard techno sound in Spain and his popularity grew in an unstoppable geometric progression. Oscarâ€™s sound became more and more focused, incorporating technos most advanced developments into his sets. His incredible skills behind the decks and his spectacular EQ techniques never leave the crowd indifferent. While his DJ schedule took him around the world, Oscar started producing and releasing his first tracks in 1999. In 2000 he decided to create his own label Warm Up Recordings. Oscar has also set up a new label, Pole Recordings which kept the Warm up theme alive but with modern sound design. His charisma and his professionalism have turned Oscar into something more than a DJ. He is admired wherever he goes and nobody can deny his status in the Spanish techno scene. We can only ask why has he not been here before?
