about

In December 2015 the Chilean musician Silvio Paredes, with a long and distinguished artistic trajectory in his home country, released what was his second solo album entitled Poptronics. As the name suggests, the album mixed electronic music with sounds and compositional structures from pop music. This work was nominated in Chilean Pulsar Award’s Top Five Albums 2015 in the electronic music category.
In January of 2016 Silvio Paredes moved to England to further the circulation of his music, present his work live to new audiences and interact with European musicians looking for new creative experiences.
Seven months after the release of Poptronics and following several successful concerts in the UK and Germany, Silvio decided to invite a handful of renowned electronic musicians of different styles and creative approaches to participate in a remix project.
André Bucci’s remix emphasizes the groove and provides a pleasant and warm ambient mood, whereas Danieto proposes a mystical inner journey, ripe vith vertigo and a dash of psychodelia. Calfuco is a spot in southern Chile and Vigliensoni gives life to its lush forests, big cliffs, the powerful Pacific Ocean and the constantly drizzling rain. Frank Benkho uses some cunning harmonic shifts enhanced by bass synth and exacerbated ornaments to convey a feeling of absorption, whereas Fiat600 lowers the tempo and lead us into a dark and sombre world, as the vocal of Javier Barría is juxtaposed by an Afro-American choir. Finally, Lars Graugaard honours his stage name "Lars from Mars" as he takes us by the hand and we fly with him across the surprising surface of the planet Mars with its valleys, ravines and mountains, with a distant Earth hovering over the horizon.

Self-taught, Silvio is a reference point on electric bass and the Chapman Stick not only in his home country, but in all of Latin America. In particular the Stick has been his main instrument since he started playing and he combines it with an array of electronic devices.
Boasting an extensive trajectory, Silvio has been a seminal part of several of the Chilean music scene’s mainstays. His trio Los Mismos was the first electronic group that would mix electronics with electrical instruments in a playing style similar to that of a rock band, and Silvio is co-founder and core member of the still active cult band Electrodomesticos that blends industrial rock with electronica. His fusion of elements from jazz, rock and hip-hop with electronica has been released on four albums, featuring guest performances by outstanding musicians such as DJ Raff, Solo di Medina and DJ Bitman as well as the highly successful indie-pop artist Javiera Mena.
