Francisco Castorina is an Argentinian DJ, selector, curator, and music journalist based in Barcelona. Cisco is the binding pseudonym of a variety of music personalities that have always been serving the dancefloor. He is an eclectic selector who mixes rhythms and styles such as Freaky Disco, Electro Funk, Boogie, Dream-Acid House, Afro Synth, Kraut-Space, Italo and Indie. Each set is always a new possible tale, leaving genre atavisms aside.
Cisco has been around the music world since 2008 when he created Undertones parties, an icon of the independent scene of Buenos Aires for ten years. The events grew vertiginously until becoming a landmark where the best local and international DJs, producers and music groups performed. Quickly, Undertones evolved into a more ambitious project while becoming a record label Undertones Gang Records and an agency that gathered talented musicians, DJs, designers, and visual artists. Also, for many years he was a resident and curator of Niceto Club, one of the most important clubs in Argentina with more than twenty years of experience. Not only a venue, a huge national cultural institution.
Since 2019 Cisco is based in Barcelona, where he plays every month at some of the freshest underground parties like Glove, Freedonia, Playground or This Side UP, among others. With more than ten years of experience playing around the world, he has shared the decks with prestigious artists like Moodymann, Theo Parrish, John Talabot, Palms Trax, Dekmantel Soundsystem, Jungle, Kaytranada, Giorgio Moroder, Alexander Robotnick, DJ Koze, Roman Flügel, Michael Mayer, Chromeo, Tim Sweeney, A-Trak, Erol Alkan, Justin Robertson, Matias Aguayo, Mytron & Ofofo, Mijo, Sanfuentes, Alejandro Paz, Phil weeks, Munk a.k.a.
