Crowned ‘Best Newcomer’ at the DJ Awards 2015, Cuartero returns to Hot Creations, following his ‘Dioneli EP’ smash release last year. Fresh on the table, the ‘Disarm EP’ ups the stakes and sheds new light on the talented producer.
Title track ‘Disarm’ was fully formed after days spent exploring his Minimoog, while ‘Mounted’ shows focus in the bassline and underlying swing, embroiled in dark, distorted vocals. Speaking of the final track, Cuartero explains, ‘’It Stops’ is a completely different style of track that adds old radio broadcasting snippets over Detroit stabs.’
Despite being recently named ‘Best Newcomer’, Spanish bred Cuartero has been producing since the tender age of 15 with his first release dropping in 2009. Releases followed on highly acclaimed labels such as Desolat, VIVa MUSIC, Saved, Moon Harbour and Hot Creations, achieving great national and international success with most tracks reaching the Beatport Top 100.
In 2011 he founded his own brand, Sanity, enabling him to start a record label and host parties worldwide with the idea of prioritizing the essence of music over the appearance of top named artists. It was in 2012 things really started to heat up with an abundance of gigs in five continents, numerous top chart positions on, a gig at Amnesia closing and a prized residency at Hyte (Amnesia). Fast forward to the present and the high level of success only continues to soar.
