Robot Discos/Lo Fi Funk
Pioneer of the electronica scene in Aragon and one of the most restless elements in the national underground scene, always seeking to innovate and provoke. He has spent more than 10 years behind the turntables of some of the best night clubs in Spain (Florida 135 , Loft, Apolo, Fellini,Vademécum, Nasti…) and in almost all the patriotic electronica festivals, ( Sonar2000/2006/2009, Observatori 2000-2002 y 2007, Electro2m 2003-2004-2005 y 2006, Periferias(2005/2007/2008), Monegros Desert Festival 1998/2000/2008/2009 ,Monegros Indoor Festival 2007, BAM 2007, h2Zone , Actual2009, FIRE 2009 Conmutaciones, in la Línea…
His hyperactivity is reflected in his work as a DJ, his distribution company ROBOT, the record label KONTAKTE together with José Antonio Serrano and David Ortolá ( Lontano) , devoted to restless, creative music , and a new record label LO FI FUNK with his friend Hybakusha, devoted to Skwee, beats and low fidelity funk.

In 2009, together with Radio Malone, Enceemismado and Hybakusha he has founded ZKWEEE CREW, the first Spanish group devoted to Skwee, in particular, and to synthetic funk in general.

Chelis was voted best Aragonese DJ in 2008 at the X awards of Aragonese music.
He is now immersed in numerous projects:
Transforming Robot, his record shop, into a distribution company and online shop devoted to peripheral sounds that, despite their potential, are not readily available in Spain.
Creating a new record label of 7’s together with his friend Hybakusha, the label that will bear the name LO FI FUNK and that will be devoted to synthetic funk in all its forms but especially Skwee.
Promoting the new Project together with Mwëslee where the sessions will have four turntables, four cd’s, two mixers and a sampler. This project was first performed in the Periferias 2008 festival and it was a great success both with the public and with the critics. This project has also taken us to Sonar 2009 and to Morocco where we performed before an audience of children and young people – a unique experience.
What has been said about Chelis:
Right now, Chelis is possibly the most restless DJ in the country. This guy from Zaragoza is not interested in playing what everybody carries around in their case, and his creative and non-conformist spirit have led him to explore new paths that practically no other DJ in the country has dared to explore. In his hands, it makes sense to mix experimental techno with dubstep, and breakcore with skwee. In one session, Chelis can give body and sense to emerging styles, weird or dark, and his performances always sound great to the ears. Only a very few DJs like Chelis are capable of doing what he does: discover new worlds.
Javier Blanquez on the Monegros Desert Festival web
Champion and leader in our country of that exciting genre known as dubstep, a style that he has been immersed in for three years, this musician from Zaragoza has taken on an extremely difficult role as a DJ for select minorities and curious majorities wherever he goes. Upright and changeable like no other, Chelis is a DJ with no complexes, tenacious in his ideas and impossible to pigeonhole him in one sole style because he plays them all with art and skill. He does not offer the obvious but rather searches in the depths of the buckets, like a disco mouse, in order to present us with something different every time. His concept of a dance floor is that of a space that is open to infinite possibilities, whether it be deconstructing funk or electro, throwing off flashes of breakcore and experimental sounds, cracking hip hop rhythms or inventing futuristic techno from the stages of places like Bass Space, Flow, Apolo and Florida 135 and festivals like Observatori, Sónar, BAM and Periferias; at this last one, last 26th October, he offered a mind-boggling set mixing such different styles as the ‘copla’ of Spanish folklore and dubstep. Working from his headquarters in his Robot Discos shop in Zaragoza, Chelis is also a shaker, involved in organising monthly parties, first with El Megafono and now with Urbarritmo (which Various Production and Kode9 have performed with) and manages the Kontakte record label together with the members of Lontano.
Not simply an imaginative, curious, free mind DJ, Chelis is also a passionate, daring cool hunter for electronica, one step ahead of the trend, discovering new sounds (bmore, skweee...) and artists, and above all, doing what only a handful dare to do, change and innovate the ever more standardised dance music. In his way, Chelis is a revolutionary, determined to prove that there are other ways of understanding electronica.
