Leonel Castillo is undoubtedly Argentina’s most gifted producer. While his releases remain extremely rare, his daily creations keep adding and adding onto the thousands of tracks he produced over the past 20 years.
On this very special artist EP – Leonel Castillo, the great engineer, sets some intricate and complex rhythmics in motion, forging El Salon De Los Espejos into a highly feverish hotbox of a record. Get this right : no other man can devellop such elaborate patterns as he does.
From his lucious grooves featured on Sushitech, to the stripped aesthetics as heard on Illian Tape or even the Dubby Techno textures from his record last year on Greener – needless to say, Leonel covers a wide and complete musical range.
Recently, Leonel Castillo was also featured on Resident Advisor’s esteemed podcast series. On that occasion, he prepared close to 2 hours of his own unreleased productions only, under a live set format. A mixed recording about which followers commented wildly about for weeks.
A true legend in his country, Leonel Castillo actually never crossed the Atlantic ocean to unveil his DJing and Live wonders to the old continent. A fact that will soon become outdated, as el maestro already prepares his first tour for 2011. Also make sure to watch out for the first release of his own label Groovear, which will be made available this Fall…
