Collude brings yet another titan off the international circuit.
Joining us in July for Brett's B'day we have Mendo stopping in on his pacific tour. We are very excited about this one as Mendo is yet another long time favourite of Collude.
Prolific producer, Swiss-born in Geneva to Spanish parents, with more than 100 tracks released in 10 years on the best tech house and undergroud music labels (Saved, 8bit, Get Physical, Suara, Viva Music, Rekids, Great Stuff, CR2, Defected, Material, Noir Music and Cadenza of course, to name a few), among them worldwide smashing hits such as "Everybody I Got Him", "Gringo", "Aventuras" & "Inocencia" (which won the Vicious Music Award for Best Release on 2011), named best newcomer as a producer by Luciano, Joris Voorn and Erick Morillo in 2009 & 2010, Mendo is one of the most requested artist from Cadenza.
Travelling around the world all year round to play in the best clubs (such as : Womb in Tokyo Panorama Bar in Berlin, Cielo in New York, D-Edge in Sao Paulo, Ushuaïa, Pacha & Booom in Ibiza, ...) and festivals (Monegros, Balaton Sound, B My Lake, Electric Zoo, One Festival, ...), he is followed by a huge amount of indestructible fans who would miss none of his performances, during which his incredible four-deck Traktor sets that blend the best of house, live sampling and techno futurism produce overexcited atmosphere parties. "The key to a successful party is to get girls dancing. Once they dance, everybody does,” Mendo says. “I just want people to have a good time with my music.”
Mendo spent the last 6 months of 2012 working on his first album "Avalon" going to be released this autumn followed by a worldwide album release tour. A first extract, "La Krika", has been released on 1st of July, immediately played by Marco Carola in all his sets. "You will be surprised to discover this album as, half of its tracks are in a down tempo style, that people aren't used to hearing from me, but which I had a lot of pleasure producing." Mendo says.
But in 2013, Mendo has not been away from his studio, and several originals & remixes are going to be released on labels such as Form music, Amazing music, Younan music, Eat & Beat records, Material, before the end of the year. “It's exciting to produce a song, then play it in front of thousands of people and make them hysterical,” he says. “DJing is the best job in the world.”. So... stay tuned !!!
Besides, he runs his own label Clarisse Records, established already 10 years ago, publishing the best producers and releasing hits one after an other, and, since 2012, managing 7 confirmed DJs, who, he thinks, deserve to be highlighted on the international scene. Also, he is now running Clarisse Nights parties in the best european clubs.
