Biography

In the more than fifteen years he has been producing electronic music, Luis Flores has not only made a name for himself but has been at the forefront of a movement that made the city of Guadalajara, Mexico a hot spot for electronic music production and events. At the center of this movement was Nopal Beat Records, a label that created its unique brand of techno, reflecting the quintessentially contradictory and dark spirit of Mexican nightlife, by taking techno and house on the one hand and classical latin rhythms on the other, to create its trademark acid cabaret style. As Artistic Director of Nopal Beat, Luis worked with cultural authorities to produce a string of massive, free public events that could bring electronic music to a wider group of people. Besides providing a stage for local producers, he also worked with renowned international festivals, like MUTEK, to carry out their local editions, creating a meeting place for the most respected international artists and emerging local talent.

In 2006, he began experimenting with an audiovisual project called Kümbia Korrupters, focused on samples from Mexican movies of the fifties and sixties. Towards 2007, the need for a more depurated style led to the launch of Antena Discos by the Nopal Beat team, which gave Luis artistic license to take the cabaret references in his music towards an increasingly abstract aesthetic.

In 2009 the release of the Damage EP on Droid Recordings, established Flores as an international artist with its immediate success, making the charts of artists such as Speedy J, The Detroit Grand Pubbahs and Chris Liebing’s Best 10 of 2009.
