Felipe Valenzuela is an eclectic pioneer who has
exporting his unique brand of melodious and elegant
techno from his motherland Chile to Europe and
beyond, since his distinctive style has brought him
global acclaim. The last year has seen Felipe bloom in
the studio, both on his own as “Stabilo” for Savor
Music, as “Almost there” with Dorian Paic for
Raum…Musik and “Count Three” released on Drumma
Records by F.A.D. the acronym used for Felipe
Valenzuela, Argenis Britto and Dani Casarano, Felipe’s
partner in crime and business for Drumma Records.
Felipe’s career as DJ started in 2002, and since then,
it has been an unceasing crescendo. His music has
been featured on esteemed imprints like Cadenza,
Drumma, Raum…Musik, Safari Electronique, Saw
Recordings and of course his own label Melisma, a
unique electronic music platform dedicated to those
superfine hearing, who are constantly opting for a
sophisticated music experience. The label, founded in
2009 together with his friend Dani Casarano, proudly
includes artists like Ryan Crosson, Fumiya Tanaka,
Thomas Melchior, and the master Ricardo Villalobos,
who decided to join Melisma due to his long-lasting
relationship with Valenzuela, and the evident label
sharp ascendency. Villalobos’ debut comes among an
outstanding remix of Dierent Bass, a track originally
“written” by Felipe himself and Jcko Mosquiera.
At the beginning of the 1990s a significant underground movement overturns Chile and Felipe soul. The driving forces
behind this phenomenon were Ricardo Villalobos and Dandy Jack which influence converged together with Felipe
indisputable talent, shaping his unique musical style… Felipe sound goes beyond the usual standards of electronic
music. His style, devoted to classical and mysterious melodies, focused on delivering the chicest techno, is a highly
distinctive mixture of colorful shades of his Latin heritage and the avant-garde beats of the post-minimal techno of his
new hometown Berlin.
Even if his days are mostly dedicated to prepare dope new tracks, catalogue his infinite vinyl collection or recruiting
fresh Melisma’s talents, his commitment remains the same: deliver quality timeless music that not only fills the
dancefloors but also audience’s mind and soul.
