Rodrigo is definitely someone who should be listened to closely. Influenced by a wide variety of music ranging from deep house to much darker and assertive notes he crosses many music styles, making his sound hard to pigeonhole. As a constant, his signature approach to heavy rhythm always pulses through. At 14 he became aware of house and techno, consequently growing incredibly fond of electronic music. The idea of controlling sound surely became the main interest in his life and in the recent years he has dedicated his time to understanding audio technology. Back in E.S. he began playing at popular and curve-shifting weekly and monthly parties as well as much larger scale events held in San Salvador’s nightlife hot spots. Later, along with a few like-minded artists he hosted the bi-weekly party ‘SONUS’ in Berkeley, CA with the intention of expanding the techno presence in the SF East Bay. By ignoring the bandwagon, he’s kept true to a certain style, always administering a heavy drop in his groove. He’s shared stages with world renowned artists, as well as a solid list of fellow techno obsessives. Adapting quickly to various crowds he’s earned fruitful recognition. After continuously taking energetic sound home to El Salvador, partnering with Simon Moore and Steven Campodonico they have debuted the techno affair ‘RE~SET’ in San Francisco as well.

Now while working on his own productions, the intent to draw from energy in subtleties has made innovation his main goal. Inspired by the continuous degree of experimentation in the techno/house realm and stirred by the on-going minimalist sounds, Rodrigo is always pushing himself to think and step forward.
