SALITRE Vigo comes back to the roots.
It is a pride for all our team to have this line-up in our project, a sociocultural movement founded by Southear and Anxiety for Living, which seeks to resuscitate the primitive instinct of latent clubbing in Vigo.
Freddy K (KEY Vinyl, ACV – IT)
Freddy K: techno activist. Since the ‘90s Alessio Armeni has been tireless campaigning from the dancefloor, defending vinyl, championing young talents and reinforcing the scene from the shadows. You will know him best for his marathon DJ sets and deviant selections. You might recognise him as the head of KEY Vinyl, or for the backstage role he played at M_Rec, the label he helped run with best friend Max_M. You should definitely know about Virus, the thing that started it all off for him back in Rome.
Lory D and Leo Anibaldi’s the Sound of Rome movement, Luca Cucchetti’s renowned Mad radio shows, warehouses, soundsystems and rave all informed Freddy K’s earliest obsession with techno. He started DJing at Sunday after hour events, having danced all through the night himself. In 1993, aged 21, he launched his now famous Virus radio show, which ran daily from 8PM to midnight, and from midnight to 6AM every Saturday. Parties, a booking agency and record shop soon followed, the Virus movement had arrived. A year later Freddy K signed to the legendary ACV, who released his first EP, Control. Rage Of Age, his debut album came in 1995, a dark and noisy record influenced by his two passions, Chicago acid and rock. It was widely lauded throughout the country and remains a testament to the old Sound of Rome today.
After Virus peaked and having toured all over the world with ACV, Freddy K stopped DJing and retreated to the backroom. He spent the early millennial years working with Sandro Nasonte at Rome’s flagship record store, Remix. Together they set up the influential Elettronica Romana label, which released some of Donato Dozzy and Giorgio Gigli's first EPs. In 2005 Freddy K launched K1971, a label management enterprise that continues to support fledgling initiatives today from its base in Berlin. He moved to the German capital in 2009, setting up KEY Vinyl as a “techno label for DJs” two years later. Artists like PVS and Héctor Oaks have helped forge the label’s (and Freddy K’s own) traditionalist view on techno.
Moving to Berlin reignited Freddy K’s teenage infatuation with rave. He soon fell in with Homopatik, the former monthly gay event at about blank. He became notorious for his epic 10, 14 and 16 hour-long sessions there, playing always strictly vinyl and in a dynamic, party conscious fashion. Freddy K sets are characteristically mercurial and 100% tailored for the dance. He plays a “360°-style of techno,” which can include Soft Cell, WestBam or Bronski Beat, when the timing is just right. He played his first Berghain set in 2013, two years later he was closing the place, keeping the energy levels soaring well into Monday. The last 20 minutes, he says, are the most important, so be sure to stick around till the very end.
Invadër Ønë (Vinyl Lovers – ES)
Invadër Ønë is the aka Alex Vazquez (Lugo) uses in his most techno format, although there is also place for other genres like electro or EBM, music with more industrial hints.
Alex starts to be interested in electronic music in 1995, and to make regular trips to the nearby Asturias, which was in full musical boom, with parties and long-lasting schedules. All this for several years, with the fact of seeing Jeff Mills for the first time, encouraged Alex to go deep into the DJ’s world and the traditional mixing. He is considered an eclectic DJ in all his lyrics, since throughout the years he has fed and consumed music from multiple genres; in the booth he has been heard ambling through West Coast house, electro, minimal, to the hardest techno, always trying to tell his own story.
Since 1997 he has had time for his 3 residences in the emblematic clubs of his hometown, Badulake and Mystic Club, or las Chicago and Detroit Morning After in Sarria, residences that he combined with other clubs that at the same time were setting up in Galicia and Asturias, together with endless trips around Spain, playing in the major cities of the geography. Many years and km have given him the opportunity of performance together with great artists of international status like Oscar Mulero, Regis, Marco Carola, Luke Slater, Surgeon, Reeko, Oliver Ho, The Transhumans, Inigo Kennedy, Sunil Sharpe, Zadig, etc.
After a long professional career, he and some friends created Vinyl Lovers, with the aim of filling the electronic emptiness that was formed in the city of Lugo, providing an offer of artists who share musical philosophy and also indispensable love for the format they make reference to in their name: the vinyl. Nowadays, he dedicates part of his time to take the first steps in the world of production; with a wide range of influences, he is searching for a sound that defines it completely.
