Seph

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).
