Miguel Puente, Andres Aguirre
MIGUEL PUENTE - (Union Jack, No. 19, Akbal)
Monterrey native, yet son of a number of cities that influence his style and his direction, Miguel Puente is a well-traveled DJ and producer that has known how to adapt his sound to every corner of the world he’s been to. Puente spends two years living in Chicago in the 90’s and almost a year in Montréal in 2005. While in Canada, his curiosity about electronic music is truly born and his compelling journey begins.
From 2008 to early 2016 Puente establishes in Barcelona, a place that allows him to grow as an artist and discover other creative aspects of his love for dance floor music. Immersed in the Catalan sun and together with the Digital Delight crew, in 2010 Miguel starts to organise parties that led to a yearlong residency at Hotel Me where they hosted guests like Zev, Le Loup, Shaun Reeves, Djebali, to mention a few.
In 2011 Miguel released his first track on No.19 music, a label that made him hit a sweet spot and finally allowed him to release his
first solo EP. Puente has also delivered in a handful of notorious labels such as Akbal Music, Cajual Records, Hot Waves and Diynamic, among others.
While in Barcelona, Puente played in well-known parties all over the world such as Brunch Electronik, DGTL Festival, and in legendary venues like Moog, Macarena Club and BeCool. This, of course, without forgetting the international area, where he has been seen to play at the Hotel Standard Los Angeles, Wilde Renate Berlin, Lost Beach Ecuador, Kazantip Festival in
Ukraine and also in key cities such as London, New York, Paris and Ibiza.
To try to describe Miguel’s unique and versatile sound, one would have to mention house and techno at the core of his identity. In this deep and raw mixture of classic and contemporary rhythms he constructs his own version of club music, all of this with a never-ending groove that makes even the more abstract and minimalistic styles come together in a perfect fusion.
ANDRES AGUIRRE - (Forbidden Colours, bodytalk, Union Jack)
When it comes to music, everyone has their own vision. Andres Aguirre is no different - he's just a man that has consistently pursued his unending thirst for musical exploration and transcendent groove. A well known DJ in the underground circuit for his eclectic, hypnotic, and funky track selection, and acclaimed as a producer that is constantly trying new things - he is a trailblazer for modern underground electronic music - firmly rooted in the tradition of house and techno yet with an augmented affinity for experimentalism. While growing up along the RGV during his formative years he would regularly get down in freestyle jam sessions with his musically-minded friends - an approach to musical creation that he has maintained to this day and that has inevitably found its way into his off-the-cuff DJ sets, production techniques, and composition methods. After investing many years of autodidactic work, he developed a distinct style to his musical taste, one he describes as "a montage of sound functioning as an experiment in auditory sensorimotor and spiritual manouverability." It is this same philosophy that guides his music selection and which has led him to play the foremoest venues in the cities where he has resided: from Lanai, Kingdom, and Loft718 in Austin; Moog Club and Macarena in Barcelona; to MN Roy, Mono, & AM Local in Mexico City.
