Biography

MySpace page - http://www.myspace.com/pacomendoza1

“Paco Mendoza is a musical globalista with a rebel heart. His music is multilingual, multicultural, merging the Latin soul of José Feliciano, Marley’s uplifting idealism and the street smart of Hip Hop. Born in Argentina to Peruvian and Paraguayan parents, he now lives and works in the heart of Europe. Paco, is cosmopolitan to say the least, a soundsystem DJ, producer, instrumentalist, and singer in Spanish, German, French and English. He has already produced several LPs together with his brother Don Caramelo, such as the German Reggae Grammy winning project “Raggabund”. Additionally Paco has participated in international collaborations with Latin and European artists and is also known for his work with national Reggae-Greats “Silly Walks Movement”, which are famous for their recordings with artists such as Gentleman or Patrice. Mendoza’s instrumental focus lies on his acoustic guitar, however he is just as comfortable rocking mics with his partner pon decks DJ Vadim, who has produced his debut album “Consciente y Positivo”. This LP is a musical soundtrack, a clash of the old world versus the new. It combines Latin, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Electronic influences - a revolutionary urge for love and social consciousness, spiced with daily topics and fiesta. On the musical level the Spanish guitar battles the Mini Moog creating “boom bap beats” which Paco rides almost royally. Hence, the record is a connection of several styles but in a minimal vadimesque way.
