FEDERICO EPIS (UY)
Federico Epis’s career has all the trappings of a great aspiration story, where he has captured the attention of clubbers with a sense of imagination and dedication to underground music; winning him recognition the world over and attracting support ranging from heavyweights Sasha and Dave Seaman to Tiesto and Hernan Cattaneo.
Raised on a framework filled with the electronic sounds of the 90’s in South America it was a natural progression for Federico to pursue a career in music. Having immersed his musical palette for almost a decade later, his DJing career was given a kick-start with his successful Frisky Radio Show being a monthly exhibit of his flourishing house style.
Always avoiding drowning in excess, Federico performances draw from a rich variety of elements - those glistening runs and those swollen chords, he’s never afraid to pile his set’s heavy chugging pace with extra flowing layers of heartfelt drama. Sasha’s prestigious BBC Essential Mix showcased Federico’s early “Brasilia” track and while catching the attention of peers and labels such as Dave Seaman’s Audio Therapy, it quickly became apparent that the aspiring Uruguay dj had the ability to do much much more.
Federico rode the Beatport charts high with “Brasilia” being one of Audio Therapy’s biggest selling singles to date; his Global Underground releases ”Is Time”, “Simple” and “Sweet Girl” that follow both serve as reminders that Federico’s unfolding inspirational curve rarely gets in the way of him rocking a dance floor.
Over the course of his exciting career, Federico has traveled the world over playing alongside the industry’s top DJ’s such as Paolo Mojo, Jim Rivers Anthony Pappa,the latter of which quickly signed him and his track “Mare” in 2009 to his Red Light District label. As resident for Renaissance’s South American Tour, Federico has to date been delivering a smooth flow of vivacious deepness and uplifting progressive house.
Through releases on Global Underground, Audio Therapy and Groove Collections, Federico Epis has been exploring his love of liberal progressive -laced beats, quietly amassing an impressive discography. Whether it be ambient and beatless or a reflection of the current and past house movement, Federico can inject his studio output with a sassy level of news sounds; evident in the 2009 signing of “Shout” to Spanish house guru’s Wally Lopez’s Factomania which gained immediate support from Marco Corolla to Mark Knight.
With energetic tribal tones and almost epic textures his music and sets continue to have the depth and charisma you'd expect from giants of the scene, Federico’s sharp rise to the stage combined with the consistency of quality tracks, makes the prospect of forthcoming releases all the more mouth-watering.
