BIO

Como si hubiera estado escrito de antemano Ariel comenzó a interesarse por la música desde los 10 años, cuando obtuvo su primer teclado.

A partir de ese momento su devoción fué en constante crecimiento, aprendiendo además a tocar guitarra y percusión.

Sus primeras influencias musicales eran Dub y Reggae escuchando discos de personalidades como Bob Marley, Horace Andy, King Tubby entre tantos otros.

A partir del año 2000 se interesó en la música House y Techno escuchando una gran variedad de discos e interesándose en artistas que venían en auge desde las corrientes londinenses como Nathan Coles, Terry Francis, Eddie Richards, y posterior a estos, a leyendas como Kevin Saunderson, Derrick May, Carl Craig, Robert Hood  y Jeff Mills.

Recuerda Ariel: “Fueron incontables las tardes y noches enteras que he pasado escuchando música en mi casa mezclando y re-mezclando todos los discos que compraba o recibía”.-

Gracias al tiempo y esfuerzo que le había dedicado, las primeras presentaciones no se hicieron esperar obteniendo su primera residencia en la disco Pueblo Límite en la localidad de Villa Gesell Argentina, logrando un salto importantísimo en su carrera, ya que  desde ese momento ha llevado su sonido de manera ininterrumpida a los club`s mas importantes Argentina. Como Pacha, Crobar, Mint, Big One, Bahrein, Cocoliche, Shamrock, en grandes festivales como South American Music Conference ediciones , y en el extranjero, en Treehouse (Miami – USA), Norad (Denver- USA), Primary (Chicago – USA), Studio 200 (Milwaukee – USA), Antiroullie (Montpellier – Francia),  Liverpool Bar (Barranquilla – Colombia) y Bizarro (Lima – Peru), Deja vu (Arequipa), Roswell (Cuzco – Peru).

Ariel es ademas mentor de las ascendentes fiestas Unique Community y Blow, dos de las mas importantes de su país, en donde ha compartido escenario con artistas del calibre de Marco Carola, Paco Osuna, Marc Houle, Troy Pierce, Ellen Alien, Butch, Paul Ritch, Joseph Capriati, Barem, Josh Wink, Phonique, Matthias Tanzmann, Ray Okpara, Alan Fitzpatrick, Camea, Alexi Delano, Alex Under, Kiki, Ambivalent entre tantos otros.

En sus presentaciones en vivo divagan principalmente sonidos dub Instrumental, House y Techno acompañados de bajos envolventes  y un groove de ritmo hipnótico y único.

Sus trabajos fueron editados en Mindshake Records, sello de Paco Osuna del cual forma parte del núcleo de artistas, ademas realizo diferentes trabajos para Area Remote, BLA BLA, Kumquat Tunes, Unique Community, entre otros, recibiendo el apoyo de Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Loco Dice, Mathias Kaden, Nick Curly, Paco Osuna, Alex Under, Someone Else, Barem, Guy Gerber, 2000 and one, Davide Squillace, Joseph Capriati, solo por nombrar algunos.
