Artists: Bacalao

Taking part in the demo scene on Amiga during the 90's, Bacalao has not dropped the soundtrackers. After numerous collaborations (hip-hop, electro, reggae, flamenco, rock...), electronica has become his main influence.

 

Between the soundtracker and the modern sequencer, he releases his first mini-album on Retinascan in 2004.

 

Therefore, with a laptop and a controller, sometimes even an old amiga, he plays his live set oscillating between breaks and 8-bit sounds. Since then, collaborations follow on with many artists on Micromusic.net, bringing in 2005 a second album on Retinascan.

 

In 2006, Midinette Records invites him to release two different EP. The following year he joins the 8-bit Operators and has been taking part in various compilations of 8-bit covers, like the Beatles, Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk, released on Astralwerks (label of Placebo, Fatboy Slim, Phoenix,...).

 

Since then, while organizing parties, such as Microking, he has worked with various labels, such as Egotwister, Static Records and Bleepstreet Records, where he released his latest solo EP Mixes for Fluokids.

 

In 2014, he wins the remix contest for Squarepusher organised by Bleep.com. «In the end, the Bacalao remix won because it was a proper rollercoaster ride and put a big smile on my face!» (Squarepusher).
