Techno Artist Of The Week – Paco Osuna

With a techno career spanning more than 20 years, Paco Osuna is one of the most renowned artists in the electronic music industry. His creativity, courage and relentless search for new forms of expression are some of his principal and consistent virtues when it comes to making music. On the dance floor, he is lively, intelligent and sophisticated, with a deep awareness of sound aesthetics. Every session is important to Paco and he sets out to invent and renew every time he steps onto the stage.
In 2006 he launched Mindshake, conceived as a platform for the creation and distribution of electronic music. Over the past few years, Mindshake has become one of the most important techno labels in the US and Europe, hosting productions of artists like Cuartero, Carlo Lio, Fer BR, Nick Curly and Paul Ritch, in addition to touring with the label showcases. Also in 2006, Paco founded a night with a fresh concept, Club4, alongside Marco Carola, Adam Beyer & Christian Smith. After more than 10 years, it is now considered a cult techno club in Barcelona where the love of techno reigns; Club4 has established itself as the overwhelming choice due to the variety and accessibility of the electronic music it has on offer.
Throughout his career, Paco has performed at clubs, parties and festivals of great prestige. The list of events in which he has played is endless and is one where quality is more important than quantity. From Fabric London to WOMB Tokyo, passing through Space NYC, Space Miami and Verboten NY in the US, Watergate Berlin, Electric Brixton London and in his beloved Ibiza at Amnesia and Space. Among the festivals, he has played constantly are Sónar, Awakenings, Dockyard, ADE, Neopop, BPM, Electric Zoo, Movement Detroit, Time Warp and Tomorrowland.

From 2012 to 2014 he was resident for Richie Hawtin’s ENTER, appearing not only in Space Ibiza but also in its tour around the world. In 2015 Paco Osuna became part of Music On, joining Marco Carola in residencies at Amnesia Ibiza and the Story club in Miami, as well as the emblematic parties during BPM Mexico.
In 2016 he was selected to be an ambassador of PLAYdifferently MODEL1, a distinction also received by Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Matador, Nicole Moudaber and, of course, Techno Innovator Richie Hawtin. 2016 was also an important year for the Mindshake showcases, in which Paco participated alongside the label producers with tours taking in European and American stages, including events such as the Miami Music Week and ADE Amsterdam, for the fifth and second consecutive year respectively. The Mindshake showcases are both an extension of the musical and artistic vision of Paco and a family celebration, where the main goal is to create an intimate and unforgettable experience.
In the studio, Paco Osuna has moulded his own musical signature, coating the purest techno sounds with his characteristic features: depth, darkness and imagination, always accentuated by his creativity and innovation. Proof of that is his releases on labels such as Plus8, Minus, Mood, Spectral, Hommage, and for his own platform Mindshake. In addition, he has remixed representative artists like Plastikman, Nicole Moudaber, Matador, Adam Beyer, Seth Troxler and Monkey Safari.
2018 is a story that is still unwritten, but without doubt, Paco Osuna, through determination and love, will continue to trace the journey that has led him to be the artist he is today. This year will again see his residency for Music On, while he will also still be focusing his energy on his main project Mindshake, a techno label that by the end of last year had published more than 49 references since its inception.
