Solimano returns to his Unlock Recordings imprint with two mellow house cuts, featuring a pair of imaginative reinterpretations from fellow Argentinean’s Barem and Deep Mariano. You can premiere the exquisite result of Barem’s remix detail of Learjet here.
Originally established to promote Latin American productions in 2004, Unlock Recordings has since hosted the likes of Jorge Savoretti and Guti. Its founder, Gonzalo Solimano, has proven himself time again as a label owner, DJ and producer, working as a ‘Mr. X’ at Red Bull Academy for almost ten years when not performing at the likes of Creamfields Buenos Aires, South American Music Conference and Space World Tour.
Mauricio Barembuem (Barem) spent his youth playing blues and rock guitar, but quickly took advantage of the digital revolution in which he was living, soon getting to grips with programmes like Ableton and Reason to start crafting his own electronic sounds: a keen individualist, this form of musical expression was the one Barem really enjoyed. With releases on labels like Foundsound and Minus, he quickly made a name for himself in the techno world.
Influenced by imprints like Perlon, Spectral Sound, Studio One, Ovum, 7th City as well as, of course, Minus, he began on a long journey honing his own unique sonic fingerprint. His first release, the Kleine EP, on free internet label Unfoundsound Records in 2005 was responsible for kicking off Barem’s career. The track “Suki,” was picked up by a number of internationally acclaimed DJs and re-released on vinyl label Phonocult two years later. After a few online releases, Barem signed with Minus for the label’s Min2Max compilation with “Opal”.
