Omar"cito"Perez, who holds his roots in Chile, founded Ritmo del Sol recordings,a record label devoted to house music and the many genres surrounding it.
Omar “cito” Perez has been working in post production for the past 10 years for such top broadcasters as DISCOVERY, TQS, TVA, TSN, IMAX and SIDLEE. He has worked as an online/offline editor, graphic designer, sound engineer, producer and musical director. This vast experience eventually landed him the position of technical director at Al Dente Productions Inc. * At the same time, Omar devoted his evenings to the underground nightlife scene. He exploited his professional experience to its full capacity, giving birth to multiple musical productions both in the studio and in the clubs. From afro-latin grooves to reggae, from old school to progressive house, and classic rock to blues, his influences have given him the ability to cater the needs of many musical tastes. Devoting special attention to melody, he has always distinguished himself as an emotional musician and as a producer deprived of musical frontiers. * On several occasions, he has exposed his talents before local and international audiences alike. As a DJ, he has presented his music in the most coveted venues of the underground house scene. As the exclusive remixer, for BRANVAN 3000’s E.P.Bergen, he is definitely the best of whats to come. With one of the biggest festival in Canada acknowledging his talent by booking him for its closing ceremonies at the legendary T-DANCE expecting 40 000 attendees and the lifetime moments performing in front of 6 000 people for the HAVANA club tours in 2002-2003, Omar “cito” Perez is definitely able to handle big crowds and the big expectations that come with it! Deciding to bring his production talents from the television and film career onto the house scene, he’s already signed distribution deals with RELEASE RECORDS, BEATPORT, DANCE RECORDS, JUNO RECORDS, KULT RECORDS, Mile End records and and last but not least, the powerhouse label that is SYSTEM RECORDINGS where some of the biggest names in house music find themselves (Sasha and Digweed, Josh Wink, Bad Boy Bill, Toby Emerson, David Garcia, James Zabiela, just to name a few…).
. * Be on the look out for his ongoing productions on the brink of release cuz already 8 of his tracks have seated casually on BEATPORT’s top 100.*
