About Matias Aguayo
Matias Aguayo is a left-field dance music producer, vocalist, and DJ who injected doses of playfulness and seduction into the techno scene. Initially associated with minimal techno, his later work was anything but, incorporating bizarre vocal arrangements, pop instincts, sensuality, and a sharp sense of humor. First receiving attention as part of the duo Closer Musik during the early 2000s, he went solo with 2005's beguiling Are You Really Lost. In 2009, he released the innovative, vocal loop-heavy Ay Ay Ay and founded the Cómeme label. The eclectic, ambitious album The Visitor appeared in 2013, and Sofarnopolis, the debut from his post-punk-influenced band the Desdemonas, was released in 2017. On 2019's all-instrumental Support Alien Invasion, he fused Latin rhythms with industrial minimal techno. A moody, experimental collaboration with Julianna, Que Si el Mundo, arrived in 2022.
