048 // Balam

Balam is on board, ladies and gentlemen! And the intensity of his set is impressive! The way he explores the wide variety of exotic sounds his music research amasses is one of the best qualities of this “artist to watch”.

Balam is a musician, producer and DJ from Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a long time working with his indie dance band that allowed him to play in many countries and festivals around the world, he gets all into his new solo project as producer and DJ Balam, focusing on Techno and Disco mixed with ethnics and shamanic sounds, all produced and recorded in his studio combining real analog synthesizers, like modular synths, Moogs, arp with guitars, real and weird percussion sounds creating a unique atmosphere making every track a voyage through the Latin American jungle.

In 2018 Balam released Chaman EP on French label Esthetique Records, available both digital and cassette, and Senderos de Selva EP on Playground Records (ES), a track for the TakeAway series for Calypso Records by Iñigo Vontier and Thomas Jackson, one single on Spanish label United Colors of Rhythm, plus remixes for labels like Innisfallen (MX), Controlla (MX), Nein (UK) and Emerald & Doreen (DE).
