Progressive / Electronica
Cristian Gandini was born on 25 April 1978 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began his career in late 1992, when he was only 14 years old and took his first steps into the world of frequency-modulation radio. First, he worked in production, then in radio hosting and last, in the technical operation of radio programs, taking over the on-air console, which was, in his own words, his “first school.” Strongly influenced by artists such as Pink Floyd, The Doors, New Order, Depeche Mode, Radiohead, Massive Attack and Portishead, among others, Cristian gave life to his first radio productions. Two years of intensive work and learning were more than enough to make a disco owner contact Cristian to musicalize his club in 1994, year in which he started DJ-ing. From then on, he went through different grounds and communication media, always showing his good taste in choosing and mixing music, knowing how to combine both tasks together effectively at the time of both leading a radio space and rocking a dance floor. Sharing the microphone with Luis Bedini and Diego Poso, Cristian gained knowledge and got a passion for radio. In 1998, he completed training in broadcasting at the University of Social and Business Sciences in order to make further improvement in his work in the media. Through all of those years he had the chance to perform at different radios and discos in the city of Buenos Aires, the Atlantic coast and inland areas of Argentina. Later, in 2002 he developed an interest for progressive house and break beat, when he became aware of productions by Infusion, Dousk and G Pal, among others. This proved to be a turning point of not only his DJ sets but also his radio performances. It was also in 2002 that Cristian started Frecuencia Zoom, a radio program where he has made his longest career so far as both a radio host and presenter. There, he has hosted important artists such as Tarkan, Sultan, V Sag, Snake Sedrick, Logiztik Sounds, Baunder and Dpen, to name but a few. This show has been on air for more than 5 years. This proposal generated progressive sounds, not only in terms of musicalization but also communication. Interested in keeping on learning, Cristian started to dive into the field of musical production under the tutoring of Ariel Alvarez (DJ Bia) with programs such as Reason and Ableton Live for the purpose of adding up to his knowledge to make his own performances and gradually apply more technology to each of his live sessions. At present, Cristian is an artist booked by Sol Solar Corp, an agency where he has been for some time. In 2006, Cristian was invited to join this corporation together with Germán Liagre, his partner and friend. From his work on Frisky Radio, Global Station, FM Beat and KSK Radio, Cristian keeps adding supporters through his own live DJ sets and the performances of several renowned underground guests, as well as his own productions and remixes which are already available through Bellarine Recordings from Australia and Beat Recordings from Mexico (BRM).
