…lives between Buenos Aires and Paris, djing, making music, performing
concerts alone and together with Marcus Rossknecht with their project
Born 73 in Santiago de Chile he musically grew up in Cologne, Germany,
where he spent the whole 90ies living and contributing to the scene of this city which would have such a deep influence on dancemusic. He was there, as clubkid and dj (e.g. of the legendary Liquid Sky Club) experiencing the creation of new musical styles and contributing by organizing parties and being involved in musical productions such as the project Zimt (w/ Michael Mayer, 1997). Soon he would come up with a new project: Closer Musik (w/ Dirk Leyers). Touring from disco to disco and around the world, performing livesets which also took him to Buenos Aires, Argentina - where he stayed for some time and never really left, organizing temporary free club spaces like the “juventud clandestina” (clandestine youth) and the “hoy” club - a period reflected in Matias’ Album “Are You Really Lost” (Kompakt, 2005).
his main activity nowadays consists in making free parties on the streets together with his friends Ladybumbox, Gary and Pablo, the legendary “bumbumbox” parties in capitals and big cities of Southamerica (Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, Asuncion in Paraguay, Sao Paulo, Medellin in Colombia, Santiago de Chile, etc…)
In his djsets (which are partly livesets, considering the integration of singing and a couple of instruments), Matias celebrates his vision of dancemusic, with intensity and sensuality, nights where people dance to dark disco gems, futuristic visions of underground house, nocturnal and groovedriven techno, and obviously lots of unreleased tracks, dancing and singing on top included…
Matias Aguayo is now working on a new album, new releases of 12” are soon about to come on Kompakt and on Souljazz Records…
