Robot Discos/Lo Fi Funk

Back in Spain, Zaragoza, with Chelis from LO FI Funk, and Robotdiscos Record Shop. A talented Dj & Record label boss, crazy as hell joker, but sweet as an angel! Another Skwee Homie connected to Dod Pop Records, Harmonia & Beats & Faces.

If you are one of those people who likes unconventional electronic music, you sniff out any piece that falls outside of the parameters established by radio formulas, if you detested the phenomenon of minimal techno and you are definitely a musically restless soul, then Chelis could be your father. This DJ based in Zaragoza, the windiest city in Spain, is one of the inescapable reference points for understanding the moment brewing on the breakz & beatz scene in continental Europe, and which below the Pyrenees is drawing together a large family of lovers of bass, beats of the future, the Hip-Hop Spectrum, and IDM. Chelis is a pioneer; he forms a part of the first generation of this lineage.

Zaragoza, a city that is especially peculiar as far as music goes, sawChelis start out as a DJ at the end of the 90s. Self-taught in technique and visceral in his selections, this passion for the job led him to enter into other branches of the musical world. A record businessman with his shop Robot Discos (which now only exists in digital version); a party promoter with a list of names behind him that many programmers of big clubs today would like to have; and a manager of labels, first with the Kontakte experiment, and now heading up the company Lo Fi Funk. Getting into trouble like opening a shop dedicated to the physical format, or setting up a musical label that places its bets on plastic –messes that at times he has had to abandon– show the same passion for risk that you can see in his sets, where the premise is “and why shouldn’t this go here?” This finely-tuned intuition, the confidence of someone who knows himself to be a good improviser, and a set of balls that he shows in everything that he does have made him the winner of the recent Spanish eliminatory contest Red Bull Thr3Style.
