Drumcell
Drumcell was born as Moe Espinosa in Los Angeles' San Gabriel Valley. Far away from the glamour and glitter of Hollywood, he cut his teeth growing up in a vibrant, culturally diverse neighborhood that still breeds inspiration for his work. San Gabriel Valley is also where he and the Raíz brothers, Vangelis and Vidal, met and founded Droid Behavior in the early 2000s which lead to the infamous Interface warehouse series.

A classically trained musician in his youth, Moe came to circulate around the Noise, Punk and Industrial scene, playing guitar and singing in various bands until he discovered the early '90s L.A. rave scene. That was when he got in touch with some of the heroic synthesizers of techno's early years. His enthusiasm for those exciting, synthetic sounds lead to years in the studio for his day job at Native Instruments and for his own productions at his small home studio at night. When he handed out his first self-produced, self-pressed vinyls at the Electronic Music Festival in Detroit, he heard them being played by some of the performing DJs the very next day onstage. From there, he was chuffed and ready to go all the way.

Even though he has become one of the most popular Techno artists in the North American scene, you can still hear his Industrial and Noise roots in his work. His debut album "Sleep Complex" (released Summer 2013 on CLR) is characterized by a complete disregard for genre limitations and is everything but a conventional techno album. Drumcell is a science-fiction-loving technology geek with a Punk Rock soul – he has explored and discovered the analogue world as much as the digital world of music production, to finally combine them into his very own raw, suspenseful and hypnotic style. His addiction to analog synthesis leads to countless hours in his studio, ceaselessly experimenting and searching for new, mind-expanding sounds.

Drumcell has played at numerous prestigious venues worldwide, from Berlin ́s techno mecca Berghain to the main stage of the Movement festival in Detroit. His label Droid Recordings and his own releases have captured the attention of many of the world's top Techno jocks. From here, Drumcell is ready for a whole new chapter of what he is best at and what matters most to him in life – the manifestation of truthful emotions in futuristic sonic concepts.
