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.
A truly great DJ, can make a whole room fall in love, just for a moment. Because DJ’ing is not just about playing a few tunes. It is about generating shared moods. It’s about understanding the feelings of a group of people and directing them to a better place. In the hands of a master, tracks can create rituals of spiritual communion that can be the most powerful events in people’s lives.
