Hernan Cattaneo biography:
For some DJs, music is more than just their passion or
occupation its the reason for their existence, the thing

as ever. In just two years, his Sudbeat label has risen up

journey can be traced back to the mid-80s in Buenos
Aires. Fascinated by pioneering synth-pop and post-punk
bands like Depeche Mode and New Order, Cattaneo soon
became consumed by imported 12s from the likes of
Frankie Knuckles, Derrick May and Inner City.
Before long, the young music lovers instinctive desire
to DJ and share this new found love of Chicago and
Detroit based sounds had lead him to his first and now
legendary residency at Buenos Aires Clubland.

Hernan soon followed with appearances at festivals like
Nevadas legendary Burning Man as well as key debuts
at European institutions like Homelands, Bedrock, Pacha

acclaimed, his individual mix shifted seamlessly through
genres and was coloured with both the rich seam of melody and lush lulling groove that his fans have come to love and know him for.
