Biography

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.
