His story began in the mid-80s, when house music was just realizing itself, and icons like Frankie Knuckles, Derrick May, and Inner City were paving the way for new artists to emerge. Inspired by their sound as well as the post-punk innovations pioneered by artists like Depeche Mode and New Order, his love for music grew into a passion for performance, which would eventually land him his first residency at Buenos Aires’s legendary Clubland.
It was at Clubland that he soon gained the respect, recognition, and friendship from the some of the most influential acts of the time, with nods from John Digweed, Sasha, and Paul Oakenfold to name a few. Moreover, it would in fact be his relationship with Paul that would lead to his invitation to join the legendary Perfecto Records.
From there, Hernan Cattaneo launched himself onto the international scene, first becoming Cream’s official South American Resident, and then establishing himself overseas with residencies at Cream Liverpool and Ibiza. This would in turn lead to performances at legendary venues and events such as Burning Man, Bedrock, Pacha, and Fabric. By the time his first international compilation on Perfecto was released, Hernan had already established himself as a staple artist of the international scene, with his DJ sets receiving widespread acclaim for their ability to express a unique, thought-provoking musical journey: a talent he continues to this day.
The rest, as they say, is history!. With new accolades nearly every year of his career, from being charted in the top 10 of DJMag’s top 100 DJs 2 years in a row (as well as a featured cover), performing at nearly every major festival in the world from Tomorrowland to Coachella, and holding residencies at Ibiza’s biggest venues such as Pacha and Amnesia, Hernan Cattaneo is one of the foundations of the modern underground sound. Known for his love of all music, his dedication to his fans, and his commitment to consistently delivering quality, he has built a reputation for class and good showmanship that is often lacking in the modern music scene, and has proven himself one of the few artists who has proudly stood by his musical principles that he started with in the beginning of his career.
With a new Balance compilation forthcoming, an intense touring schedule at some of the biggest dance venues on the planet, and his Resident radio show which has garnered millions of plays over the years, it is fair to say Hernan Cattaneo remains one of the most active performers and producers in the scene today. Uncompromising and driven by a relentless passion to deliver the best to those who appreciate him, Hernan will continue to be one of the defining forces in underground dance music for many years to come.
