Víctor Santana has hard-earned being one of the most important artists in the electronic underground culture in and outside Spain. Part of this merit is due to the thorough and artisan work done within his label Chaval Records. Root techno, with one foot in the very beginning of the Detroit movement, and the other one in the new updates of this genre, Chaval Records has managed to carve a place in artist’s cases such as Robert Hood, Los Hermanos, Vince Watso and Mike Banks among others...

The same way he does within Chaval Records, where Santana bets for physical formats rather than digital ones, his live performances, in all its sorts, escapes from software and digital controls and prefers the use of hardware and classic circuitry. His influences go from jazz and the classic black soul to Reggae, House and of course “Made in Detroit” Techno with a certain aroma to the first gleams from the German underground movement. Victor music and artistic curiosity turns into three different live formats:

Víctor Santana live!:

 

The original format, the roots. Victor Santana offers a 100% analog, wild and beautifully-produced show with clear influences from Techno and house movements from Detroit and Chicago. In 2013 Victor has renewed his live performance, with the recently named All In One, goes back to the origins, granting melody and musicality to a performance that has already toured in the best European clubs.

Víctor Santana & Band:

 

Victor always-dreamed Project: Once faced the solitude of the individual Techno, Victor created a band, including classical instruments (five) to bring along a new way of understanding techno. Instruments far from being used only as merely interacting element with the music that Victor shoots, they are an active part in the composition, development and execution of Victor’s music being forefront of the performance.

Víctor Santana Trio:

 

By Bringing spontaneity from Victor’s individual live to the musicality and emotion of the Band, Victor Santana Trio is the most balanced melting point between Victor’s two passions: Machines and Instruments. Trio is formed by keyboard, saxophone and the spectacular analog set up from Santana.
