3. Moreon & Baffa
How did you guys start out?
We started in the ‘90s, we were the only people playing our sound in Venezuela, a kind of mellow techno. We lived in different cities but met each other at gigs, as we were playing the same kind of stuff. We moved to Barcelona together. We’d come from Latin America where electronic music was not as big, so that needed to happen to get our name out there.
You’re signed to Visionquest. How did that come about?
We had a personal connection at Visionquest, but first we wanted our sound to be right. So we waited and waited until we had a few tracks. We sent them over, and they liked it straight away! But then, this was 3 or 4 years of planning, because it takes serious time to make your own sound.
What’s the hardest part of building a track or producing?
Defining a sound. If you DJ, if you’re surrounded by music, it’s easy to get into a bit of techno, a bit of house, it’s hard to really have your own sound.
Is there a release strategy in place your side?
There’s a planning aspect to it, but we’re not the guys sitting in the big chairs making that decision. We often think a track would be good for spring, or good for summer, but often it’s a case of, if it’s ready - we’ll send it.
What are your plans for the future?
We really want to build a South American following - we’re travelling through there to build contacts and a following. The first track on Visionquest is coming out as a vinyl-only special edition in July too.
