Los Hermanos (US)
The city of Detroit, birthplace of techno, has since the beginning of the 90s been witness to the formation of a truly subterranean organization, Underground Resistance—a project initiated by a group of musical and political activists that perform in darkness, their faces covered. Separating themselves from trends, media and big business, UR has won legendary acclaim for developing an integral, independent musical vision supported by a futurist philosophy. The founding trio—Mike Banks, Jeff Mills and Robert Hood—left their mark upon history thanks to the aesthetic that they gave Detroit techno.Released from the depths of this mysterious collective, 1999's Knights of the Jaguar EP was the fruit of a collaboration between Gerald Mitchell, DJ Rolando and Mad Mike Banks. Upon the success of this EP, and developing an emerging new aesthetic, Gerald Mitchell and DJ Rolando decided to form a new division under the name Los Heremanos. Rolando left soon afterwards, but Los Hermanos recruited DJ Dex and DJ S2 to reform the group. In 2005 they released their debut album, On Another Level, after which they set off across the globe to perform their thrilling and effective live sets.Together, Gerald Mitchell, Santiago Salazar (aka DJ S2), Esteban Adame and Dan Caballero (aka DJ Dex) form a diverse group of complex personalities that perform live mixing together turntables, percussion, synthesizers and other machines, creating a music that combines classic techniques with electronic innovations and even touches of salsa. An intense performance and a mythic group not to be missed under any circumstances.
