 - Francisco Allendes

Bio:

Francisco Allendes, born in Chile, was introduced to the world of music at the early age of nine when his parents gave him a violin for Christmas. After eight years of classical training and performing with chamber orchestras and folkloric bands, Francisco discovered Progressive Rock and the sound of the synthesizers at the early age of seventeen. The synthesizer was his first contact with electronic instruments, which opened him up to a new world and motivated him to start researching for new sounds. The obvious next step from producing was to be a DJ. In 2001 he purchased his first Technics and became a DJ. Shortly after that he became part of the professional circle of Chilean DJs. His first productions triggered prizes and important performances like Love Parade Chile, Creamfields and Love Parade Berlin. In 2005 he moved to Zaragoza, Spain, to develop the duo Monomachine and start releasing on European labels like Immigrant, Catwash, Paradigma and many others. Upon his return in Chile in 2007, Francisco associated with his long time friend Marcelo Rosselot and started the first vinyl and digital record label based in Chile, Andes Music, in order to promote upcoming South American artists.Allende's sound and style is evident in tracks like “Espiritu”, released by Kling Klong Records, or the epic tracks “Llovizna”, “El Grillo, el Indio y el Robot” and “El Ladron de Mails”, all of which inspired the major DJs of the movement that played his tracks, and finally he was recruited by the market leader Cadenza Recordings. In 2009 his “Fiebre Amarilla World Tour” allowed him to play all over the world including clubs in Japan, Netherlands, Spain, France, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Uruguay. This tour helped him to establish as one of the references and frontrunners among his peers in the industry. A new episode in his career was marked as Francisco left Santiago de Chile and moved to the location he had been dreaming to be a part of: Ibiza. Upon his arrival, he found his place as resident of Ushuaia, the revelation of the year on the island for underground music, and also became the warm-up DJ for the Cocoon after parties in the beach club. In 2011 his track “Esa Nena Quiere”, released on Steve Lawler's Viva Music, took him to another level as it was played worldwide by DJs from the likes of Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Reboot, Josh Wink, Tania Vulcano and others continuously. Currently, Allendes shares his time between studio work in Ibiza and spinning records as resident DJ at the new Ushuaia Beach Hotel, as well as resident DJ of the Cocoon Heroes Formentera parties and travelling the world, sharing his sound.
