After building his reputation as one of Chile’s finest DJs and Producers, the 30-year-old Felipe Venegas joins now the Cadenza family on its mission to ignite the dancefloors of Europe and beyond.
Felipe studied Classical Music and Theory at university in Santiago, but his true musical education took place outside the classroom, in clubs where the likes of Luciano, Dandy Jack, DJ Adrian and Ricardo Villalobos were creating a new culture of sound. During weekends he escaped to attend the underground Electronic Music parties, soaking up the spirit of Techno, House and Acid. Before that, he learned the essential relationship between Music and Movement from his dancer father, who taught him the timeless rhythms of Latin Music.
The result of Felipe’s life-long immersion in music can be heard in his own work: he has released a string of impressive records on labels such as Cocoon, Supernature, Robsoul, Cecille, Drumma Records, Immigrant, Fumakilla, Leftroom, Bouq and Melisma. His landmark tracks “Espiritu”, “Pa Ballar Y Pa Gozar”, “La Reina” and “Seito” stand out as some of the best coming out from the South America scene in latest years.
A much-in-demand artist, Felipe has graced Chile’s hottest clubs and festivals alongside the likes of Massive Attack, Rinoceros, the Human League, Ricardo Villalobos, Tobi Neumann, Dinky and Luciano.
The Cadenza Records boss noticed Felipe’s explosive talent and invited him to join the label’s roster. “From my earliest days as an artist I’ve admired and been influenced by Cadenza,” Felipe says. “We share a desire to be innovative, creative, and diverse.”
