We celebrate 15th Anniversary with Ricardo Villalobos

Tuesday, 08 November 2016

For 15th Anniversary of our project we made a special partnership with Sonus and #welovesound project.

On 18th of November in The Best discotheque (Zagreb) we bring one of the most recognized DJs in the music industry: Ricardo Villalobos. It will be his first appereance in Croatian capital Zagreb. Ricardo Villalobos is a Chilean electronic music producer and DJ. He is well-known for his work in the minimal techno and microhouse genres. From a very young age he has been a a big fan of Depeche Mode, even following their tours around Europe to listen to them.


Villalobos takes much of his inspiration from Depeche Mode, as well as other artists such as Daniel Miller, Thomas Melchior, Baby Ford, Daniel Bell and Andrew Weatherall. He has also taken inspiration from rhythmic South American music.



Villalobos began to play his music at parties while he was studying at university, but this was only for his own enjoyment. He started a label, Placid Flavour, in 1993 but this was unsuccessful. His first record was released on the German Playhouse label in 1994 and he began DJing as a professional in 1998, and is in present times regarded as one of the most important minimal DJs in Europe, alongside other talented chilean djs and producers such as Luciano Nicolet (an occasional collaborator) and Dandy Jack.
