Gabriel Sordo @ Austral Mixing #043 (exclusive mix) JUN2010

Because we trust in the balance, after a great Argentinian victory, we shook hands with a Mexican brother and give the place it deserves and the opportunity to drown a little the punishment. =)

Gabriel Sordo began DJing in 1999 and a year later he joined forces with his best friends Jorge and Beto to begin creating music. Their shared drive and creativity led them to start the production trio Somnus Corp, which has led to a steady stream of releases that have been signed to some of the best labels in electronic music today. Their discography is successfully growing, most notably with ?Expo 86? which was included on Nick Warren?s GU35 Lima and ?Spacer? on Hernan Cattaneo?s 2009 Renaissance Masters compilation. Other successful releases have come from their work with Kosmas Epsilon, which produced the smash hits ?Buenos Tiempos? and ?Metal Bronco? that were played by Sasha & Digweed for thousands of people during their South American tour in 2008.

Hours have been spent in the studio creating enough music to be used for Somnus Live, the act which has the trio playing solely their own productions while re-editing and remixing to create a truly unique listening experience. As a platform to release Somnus Corp productions as well as showcasing quality tracks released by their peers, in 2007 Gabriel along with his Somnus Corp partners founded arguably one of the best new underground labels of today, Discoteca music, which they share with Tom Morgan, balErik, Dana Bergquist and Luke Fair.

Whether Gabriel is performing live with Somnus Corp or on his own Gabriel knows how to create a vibe on the dance floor that keeps the energy high and the crowd begging for more! He transcends boundaries blending all genres of house into his sets, from tech to progressive, from deep to disco, his mixing and track selections are always on key creating a smooth sound that has drawn listeners from across the globe. He has performed all over Central and South America including his native Mexico, Panama, Buenos Aires, Bogata, Costa Rica and as far as Toronto, Lithuania, Beijing, Dubai and Shanghai. His keen ear and professionalism behind the decks has allowed him to play alongside some of worlds best DJ?s including Sasha & John Digweed, Danny Howells, Nick Warren, Sander Kleinenberg, Luke Fair and Hernan Cattaneo just to name a few.

In a time when everyone wants to be a DJ and 14 year olds are producing tracks from their bedrooms it is becoming the listener?s job to have the ear sharp enough to know what is true talent. Gabriel is a true talent that needs to be heard. His passion and charming personality shines through his music and is making him a world class player as not only a DJ but as a successful producer and label.
