DJ Hernán Cattáneo
With more than ten years performing in the best clubs of Argentina, HERNÁN CATTÁNEO is one of the most respected DJs in South America. His passion for music and his ability in transmitting the best vibe to the big audience has led Cattáneo to become the leader of the Argentinean dance movement, which grows day by day. His influences come from 1980s Chicago house and from a more progressive European ’90s sound. The result is a very characteristic personal style in each and every one of his sets.
His ability to read a track combined with his distinctive personality makes him perfectly comfortable either warming up for Paul Oakenfold, playing the main role in his residencies, or closing a night after Justin Robertson, always with the same effectiveness.
The best example are his five-hour sets for Clubland (at Pacha, Buenos Aires, on Saturday night), eagerly awaited by all Argentinean dance fans. There, he develops a journey through underground house, progressive house, and deep house, where the musical quality is the common denominator of the whole night.
Lately, Cattáneo’s performances have been extended to the countries of Chile, Brazil, and Uruguay, where he is in charge of Space’s DJ booth in Punta del Este, the most important resort in South America.
In Europe, he is tightly connected with Cream; in addition to being the resident DJ at Cream’s monthly parties at Pacha in Buenos Aires, he will be playing this year at Pacha in Ibiza, and at Creamfields in Liverpool.
Cattáneo’s recent experiences have included sharing the booths with DJs such as Deep Dish, John Digweed, Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Justin Robertson, Seb Fontaine, Dave Seaman, David Morales, Green Velvet etc… and he also participated in recent concerts in Buenos Aires.
His passion for sharing the music with everybody also led him to be in charge of “The Beat,” a radio show where he combines music information plus live mixes and is heard by all fans of dance nationwide.
Together with his manager Martin Gontad, Cattáneo is extending his talents, working on the creation of a record label, through which he will develop his own productions (Deep Funk/Perfecto, available on NuBreed 4) and the edition of compilations (Clubland I & II), developing a new aspect of the local dance market.
