Why this name, this long stupid name ? First of all it was some kind of reaction to the birth of ever growing said to be real TV, the desperate need of brainless kids to be famous, by any means necessary, without having any talent to show or story to tell. It was also a love letter to the origins of techno, music without faces and top of the pops djs. Things have changed a little but for some of us the spirit lives on.
Music in general and electronic music even more has always been a way to trip, not to escape reality but to be able to alter it for a little while. This is what i aim for when i produce or perform. I impose myself no barriers, no style, no proven recipe, no fashion of the moment. I'd rather let myself go to experimentation, surprise and imagination. Darkness and melancholy are often here and there, just to show beauty is everywhere, even in the darkest corners, You just have to know where to look or listen to.
Hailing from Buenos Aires, Sebastian Galante a.k.a. Seph is one of Argentina's main electronic music artists. With nearly 10 years of activity in the techno scene, he has established himself as a multi-faceted artist, dividing his time between roles such as an energetic, prolific producer, heavily requested remixer, Aula Magna Records label manager, and a live act which has driven him to perform all across the globe. A sound experimentalist at heart, he devotes his time into expanding the sonic experience on the dance-floor and in the mind.
Having lived as a teenager in Norwich, and after studying piano and percussion for a decade since the age of 7, he was intensely influenced by the urban beats and electronic pop of the 80s and 90s. And as a result of discovering Kraftwerk, Bjork, Plastikman and Ricardo Villalobos, he quickly dove into sound synthesis and sampling, producing techno and electronica in his late high school years.
In 2004 he becomes an Electronic Arts student at the UNTREF university, and at age 19 Seph's debut EP "Goust" is released on Igloo-rec, becoming one of the label's main faces and thrusting him to achieve popularity in the underground minimal techno scene. His collaborations and projects with fellow argentinian artists like Dilo, Pablo Denegri and Jorge Savoretti grants him a spot in what was the starting point of the new argentinian minimal techno movement. After early releases on labels like Telegraph, Stock5, Kalimari, Phonocult, 11AM and having tracks included in compilations mixed by DJs like Jeremy Caulfield and Ellen Allien, he made Dumb Unit Records his home-base, with releases such as his 2010 critically acclaimed debut album Alquimia, that finally defined his mysterious and IDM-driven techno.
During the last few years his music has been released on Harry Klein Records, City Fox, Items and Things and his main focus: his own label Aula Magna Records, created with fellow musical allies and close friends Pablo Denegri, Mekas and Qik. A home for their own electronic music obsessions, the label is a platform for sound experiments and forward-looking techno.
Seph has made live shows all over the world in clubs and events such as Cocoliche, Crobar and Pacha (Buenos Aires), Fabric (London), Arma17 (Moscow), Harry Klein (Munich), Fuse (Brussels), City Fox (Zurich), Flex (Vienna), Watergate (Berlin), D-Edge (Sao Paolo), Kazantip Festival (Ukraine), Mutek (Buenos Aires) Minitek (New York), South American Music Conference (Buenos Aires), Lantern (Beijing), Earth Freq (Brisbane, Australia) and Treehouse (Miami).
Born, 1979, in Switzerland, KONPIUTA grew up in a artistic and musical environment. His own musical journey began at age 6 when he started playing the classical piano during several years and later the electric guitar and bass.
As a teenager, Konpiuta was into rock music and played bass in a variety of « Tennager-bands » inspired by grunge, funk, world music and lot of jam sessions. However, when he was confronted for the first time (late 90′s) to deconstructed and industrial electronic sounds, he realised very quickly the variety of emotions and atmospheres of that mental music or non-music.
His music addiction would focus on a more abstract and introspective sound. From 2000 onwards, Konpiuta began to create his musical universe at his own home studio comprised from a vast array of instruments he’d lovingly collected. Inspired by artists such as Autechre, Sutekh, Twerk, Anders Ilar, Plastikman, Vladislav delay, Aphex Twin, Pan_sonic or Murcof, Konpiuta was to keep his first musical works outside of the music industry allowing his sound to develop independently from the clubbing and DJ scenes.
Konpiuta also undertook studies in visual arts fusing his music and sound exploration with visual experimentation. Konpiuta began performing live at private parties and then launched his sound to the music world with the generous help of VR Records (Lausanne) who offered him the opportunity to play in différent clubs and at the Caprices Festival in Crans Montana (CH) in 2006. It was there that the public and music press were hypnotised by the velvet texture and deep dark sonorities of Konpiuta’s music.
In 2008, konpiuta began to play in different places around the world (Canada, Russia, Austria, Germany, France ,Belgium)

I ‘m mixing since the age of 12, starting with Hip Hop. Soon I needed a little more pace and then I discovered House music. In 1998 I devoted myself to my studies and I was forced to put music aside. Back in 2007 I realized I could not live without music, so I took again control of the turntables and start playing in major clubs in Neuchatel. I like discovering new sounds and my goal at a party is to share with the audience a good musical moment and literally transport them. Music allows us to travel through a multitude of cultures and I like to show it. I’m currently making my first steps into music production and I’ll soon be able to share MY music with you!
