PLLEK BALEARIC SPECIAL | MARCELO UMANA & ABEL NAGENGAST
We’ve been in love with the Balearic sound for quite some time now. After a season of silence, Balearic is back at pllek with the beautiful sun drenched sound of Ibiza.
The Balearic beat was named for its popularity among European nightclubs and beach rave parties that evolved in the mid 1980’s on the Balearic island. We are blessed to welcome two of our personal favourite DJ’s: Marcelo Umaña and Abel Nagengast (Red Light Radio).
Date: October 20th 2019

Marcelo Umaña takes you on a funky trip through the world, with his international rhythms and melodies. In his home country, Umaña was a key figure of the 90’s Chilean electronic music movement, playing alongside Ricardo Villalobos and Luciano long before both departed for international stardom. As well as spinning vinyl in the clubs of Santiago De Chile, Umaña published a music magazine, worked in the now legendary Background Records store and had a weekly radio show on the Chilean network, Radio Isla Negra. He has lived in Amsterdam since 2001, where he is a resident DJ at Pllek and runs a successful early evening show at Red Light Radio.
