Biography

Camilo Lara is the one-man dynamo behind Mexican Institute of Sound, also known as Instituto Mexicano del Sonido. Hailing from the sprawling metropolis that is Mexico City, Lara channels his inner rockstar, while holding down a day job as head of a major label. Like a musical superhero, Lara steps out of his executive alter ego, gets involved with the underground musica movement and begins his musical mission delivering electronic masterpieces with only the help of his computer, his nurturing imagination, and his awesome collection of vinyl.

Lara’s genius is not his ability to hide behind a computer screen or immerse himself in the world of modern technology (in which he’s admittedly quite a clumsy participant), but rather lies in his ability to carefully select and blend diverse musical references that will surprise and delight even the most discriminating listener. Camilo Lara has distinguished himself as a musical trendsetter among his circle of friends with his annual Christmas compilation of the year’s best tracks and unreleased MIS tracks, which has fast become a sought-after collector’s item. This hobby led Lara to collaborate on remixes under the moniker of Mexican Institute of Sound for bands and friends like Placebo, Le Hammond Inferno, Gecko Turner, and Babasónicos.

Lara has collaborated on remixes for bands and friends such as Placebo, Gecko Turner, Perez Prado, Mazarin, Quantic Soul Orchestra, Gershon Kingsley, Irving Fields, Babasonicos, and Le Hammond Inferno.
