As a teenager Paco cut his teeth in the early noughties at some of the wildest teknivals in Europe, mixing 160>190bpm tribe records. With time, although forever granted a special place in his heart, he drifted away from the free party and rave scene to broaden his horizons, deepening his knowledge of electronic music in its full scope. He migrated north to Brussels, became a sound engineer, and set up the Chez Paco + Nini recording studio, a space dedicated to creating a local synergy, bringing together various Belgian and international musical networks. He also became part of the effervescent Brüxsel Jardin team, who pool their forces to amplify local talent via their label.
Paco recognizes that music provides much more than just hedonistic loopholes. Thanks to his spiritual and political awareness, he seeks to convey magical experiences and ideals of freedom through the power of his sets and those of others. Recent initiatives like his residency at Antidote (Brussels) allow him to donate funds to local charities, proving that the scene can be a vector for change. Paco’s sets retain the energy channeled from his rave and free party heritage, all the while combining trippy, groovy techno, tech-house, breaks, and acid in an explosively joyous cocktail, bringing not only stomping feet but extended smiles to the dancefloor.
