Cute Heels

About Cute Heels

Cute Heels is the main moniker of Victor Lenis, a DJ, producer, and label owner from Bogotá, Columbia. His recordings are heavily inspired by '80s industrial and EBM, and they range from uptempo minimal wave to dark electro-techno. He began releasing tracks digitally on his own Black Leather Records label, which he founded in Colombia in 2007. The label quickly amassed dozens of releases by himself as well as other artists, and he began releasing tracks on other labels. His 2009 full-length debut, Love and Hate, appeared on the American label Black Montanas. His 2011 single "Silence Complot" spawned numerous remixes and helped Cute Heels gain an international following, with praise coming from electro-techno legends Dave Clarke and Juan Atkins. After moving to Brussels, Lenis started Romance Moderne, a label and event organization focused on darkwave and minimal synth. He produced tracks under the name Modernista, and his album Download Selbstmord (with Petra Flurr) was released by Fabrika Records in early 2012. Cute Heels' Spiritual LP was issued by the American label Dark Entries in 2014. EPs followed on Schrödinger's Box (Nepotism) and Kess Kill (KESS01), as well two more Dark Entries releases, Third Skin and State of Mind. ~ Paul Simpson
