Hernan Cattaneo always sounds better at the beach. Catch the legendary South American DJ on the shores of Omiš!
His story began in the mid-80s, when house music was just realizing itself, and icons like Frankie Knuckles, Derrick May, and Inner City were paving the way for new artists to emerge. Inspired by their sound as well as the post-punk innovations pioneered by artists like Depeche Mode and New Order, his love for music grew into a passion for performance, which would eventually land him his first residency at Buenos Aires's legendary Clubland.
It was at Clubland that he soon gained the respect, recognition, and friendship from the some of the most influential acts of the time, with nods from John Digweed, Sasha, and Paul Oakenfold to name a few. Moreover, it would in fact be his relationship with Paul that would lead to his invitation to join the legendary Perfecto Records.
From there, Hernan Cattaneo launched himself onto the international scene, first becoming Cream's official South American Resident, and then establishing himself overseas with residencies at Cream Liverpool and Ibiza. This would in turn lead to performances at legendary venues and events such as Burning Man, Bedrock, Pacha, and Fabric. By the time his first international compilation on Perfecto was released, Hernan had already established himself as a staple artist of the international scene, with his DJ sets receiving widespread acclaim for their ability to express a unique, thought-provoking musical journey: a talent he continues to this day. The rest, as they say, is history!
