HERNAN CATTANEO: In the recent explosion of talent and DJs that the music industry has witnessed in the past few years, there are very few who can show the long-spanning career Hernan Cattaneo has cultivated throughout his over three decade span as an underground artist. Furthermore, there are few DJs can truly attest to the kind of dedication to a quality, underground sound that Hernan has uncompromisingly championed.
More than a performer, he has been a leader, taking the Argentinian house movement from a local collective to international prominence, and along with it exposing the world to some of the most now critically acclaimed sounds in progressive, house, and techno. His own imprint, Sudbeat, has released groundbreaking work from the biggest names in the business, from Danny Howells to Guy J, Nick Warren to Henry Saiz, as well as supported and launched careers for some of the world's newest groundbreaking acts such as Guy Mantzur, Marc Poppcke, and many others.
A seasoned producer in his own right, Hernan has further championed his own unique breed of electronic music that has time and time again found itself at the top of DJ's playlists, with a discography currently at over 30 original singles, 50 remixes, and 12 compilations to date. His remix along with Soundexile of Nick Warren's "La Fabrica" remains one of the most charted underground progressive tunes of 2013, and new collaborations with Guti (Wolf & Lamb), Omid 16B, SOS, and Soundexile are already in the works.
His story began in the mid-80s, when house music was just realizing itself, and icons like Frankie Knuckles, Derrick May, and Inner City were paving the way for new artists to emerge. Inspired by their sound as well as the post-punk innovations pioneered by artists like Depeche Mode and New Order, his love for music grew into a passion for performance, which would eventually land him his first residency at Buenos Aires's legendary Clubland.
It was at Clubland that he soon gained the respect, recognition, and friendship from the some of the most influential acts of the time, with nods from John Digweed, Sasha, and Paul Oakenfold to name a few. Moreover, it would in fact be his relationship with Paul that would lead to his invitation to join the legendary Perfecto Records.
From there, Hernan Cattaneo launched himself onto the international scene, first becoming Cream's official South American Resident, and then establishing himself overseas with residencies at Cream Liverpool and Ibiza. This would in turn lead to performances at legendary venues and events such as Burning Man, Bedrock, Pacha, and Fabric. By the time his first international compilation on Perfecto was released, Hernan had already established himself as a staple artist of the international scene, with his DJ sets receiving widespread acclaim for their ability to express a unique, thought-provoking musical journey: a talent he continues to this day.
The rest, as they say, is history!. With new accolades nearly every year of his career, from being charted in the top 10 of DJMag's top 100 DJs 2 years in a row (as well as a featured cover), performing at nearly every major festival in the world from Tomorrowland to Coachella, and holding residencies at Ibiza's biggest venues such as Pacha and Amnesia, Hernan Cattaneo is one of the foundations of the modern underground sound. Known for his love of all music, his dedication to his fans, and his commitment to consistently delivering quality, he has built a reputation for class and good showmanship that is often lacking in the modern music scene, and has proven himself one of the few artists who has proudly stood by his musical principles that he started with in the beginning of his career.
With a new Balance compilation forthcoming, an intense touring schedule at some of the biggest dance venues on the planet, and his Resident radio show which has garnered millions of plays over the years, it is fair to say Hernan Cattaneo remains one of the most active performers and producers in the scene today. Uncompromising and driven by a relentless passion to deliver the best to those who appreciate him, Hernan will continue to be one of the defining forces in underground dance music for many years to come.
NICK WARREN: Nick Warren became one of the first so-called "superstar DJs" in the mid-to-late '90s, holding down a high-profile residency at Cream in England, touring around the world, and appearing on several DJ mix albums before they became commonplace. Though he spun an eclectic array of dance styles in the late '80s and early '90s, he eventually championed the late-'90s trance sound of labels like Hooj Choons and joined the ranks of other superstar DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, and Tall Paul.
Before leading a jet-set lifestyle, Warren moved to Bristol in the 1980s after having just turned 20. By the early '90s, he was one of the city's top DJs, spinning upstairs at Vision, one of the city's first super-clubs. At the time, Warren spun everything from dub and hip-hop to house, which became his preferred style.
When fellow Bristol artists Massive Attack left to tour America in the wake of their early success, they invited Warren to accompany them on tour as their official DJ, a testament to his turntable skills as well as his reputation at the time. Eventually, Warren began a massively successful stint as the resident DJ at Cream in Liverpool.
The years that followed saw Nick Warren enjoy a whirlwind of success. Through a combination of providing acclaimed mixes for Mixmag, DMC, and the hugely successful Global Underground series, and releasing a string of club-smashing solo singles, Warren found himself catapulted into the electronic and house big leagues; and, by continuing to release acclaimed albums, singles, and remixes with his Way Out West partner-in-crime, Jody Wisternoff, and remixing tracks for the likes of Lana Del Rey, he firmly established himself as a truly multi-faceted producer of top-quality dance music.
Having already graced the decks at every self-respecting super-club on the planet and made his name as a superstar DJ, the late Noughties saw Warren turn his hand to the business side of the music industry. Now, as the A&R of Bristol-based Hope Recordings, he spends his time seeking to hone and promote the next generation of club-smashing DJ and production talent; and, through the expansion of his label The Soundgarden into a globe-straddling international events and entertainment brand, set in stone his already firmly-established reputation as a giant of electronic, techno, and house music.
With a flurry of new releases, further The Soundgarden live events from Ibiza to Argentina, and the highly anticipated Way Out West ‘Tuesday Maybe’ tour already in the diary for 2018, Nick Warren is showing no signs of slowing down; and, if the continued devotion of his ever-expanding fan-base is anything to go by, that’s a decision that will be welcomed with open arms by dance music lovers the world over.
GUY MANTZUR: Tel Aviv based Guy Mantzur specializes in creating electronic music that defies over-simple genre classification.
