(Melcure | Melisma – CH)
Dani Casarano’s musical vision is impossible to be classified. His uniquely individual sound with a touch of pure emotive soul and sullen mystery, characterise his cutting-edge approach to techno.
Born in Switzerland and based out of Santiago, Chile for over a decade, he is currently juggling between his home in Lausanne and his Studio in Berlin. During the years spent in Chile, he met his brother from another “motherland”, Felipe Valenzuela, and in 2009 they established Melisma Records. With his avant-garde label, Dani committed to set his musical trends rather than follow them. Creativity and visionary large-scale efforts helped Melisma to become the institution it is today, counting on artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Thomas Melchior and Fumiya Tanaka among many others.
Throughout his life as producer, Dani spent endless hours blending his sophisticate techno with lush funky sounds and earthy Latin American undertones, creating a formidable number of tracks which have been released on prestigious labels such as Cadenza, Drumma, Melisma, and so forth. His recent studio fruitful period saw a dense number of remarkable productions alongside Luciano for “Bell’s & Tonic” on Cadenza, Alexkid, Argenis Brito, Felipe Valenzuela for “Count three” on Drumma Records and “Ritual” and EP made with one of the fellow Melisma talents, Jakco Mosqueira, on Tzinah Records.
As a result of his initiative and continuous movement, he has grown exponentially all along his career performing in venues such as DC10 (Ibiza), Berlin’s underground Club der Visionaere, Sankeys (Ibiza), besides being one of the most craved DJs for Next Wave parties all around Europe and holding is label night residency at Hoppetosse (Berlin).
