This week have a memorable live set to give you by electronic music producer/ Dj, Luis Flores. We’ve taken one hour out of Luis’s mix that was recorded at our Blank Code series event Scene 03, in Detroit on February 4th, 2012. In the more than fifteen years he has been producing electronic music, Luis Flores has not only made a name for himself but has been at the forefront of a movement that made the city of Guadalajara, Mexico, a hot spot for electronic music production and events. Luis has represented México at the Meet in Beijing, FMEL in Chicago, Rock al Parque in Bogotá, Borderline Festival in China, Brussels BEMF and Droid’s Interface events as well as the iconic Berghain / Panorama club in Berlin during his last German tour.
Classifying Luis Flores’s sound is a difficult feat, and that is precisely its purpose. His personality and experience are present in every track he produces, where the normally inorganic techno manages to elicit large amounts of groove and sense of humor. Flores’s interaction with the machine becomes the listeners’ interaction with auditory landscapes of eeriness, altered states and paranoia. A minimal use of elements results in a rich spectrum of textures and a dark and trippy dance floor pull. Live shows, improvisational in nature, can last anywhere from 1- 4 hours, resulting in a hypnotic exploration of the possibilities of electronic production.
