Oscar Mulero

Oscar Mulero (Spain)


Artist profile: Oscar Mulero

The mid-eighties, Madrid. The Spanish capital is teeming under the grip of a musical explosion the
likes of which has never been seen before. In the midst of that rabid swirl, a teenager, unknown and unassuming, enters a record shop to blow his savings on an album, Standing on a Beach, by The Cure. Little did he know that this was to be his first step on the long and difficult path to becoming one of the country's essential djs.

He soon became a familiar face in the dj booths of the most exclusive underground clubs
of Madrid, but the best was still to come and the first chapter was called New World, his
first proper job.

New World sessions were soon all the rave and Oscar entered the studio for the first time
to collaborate in the making of the club's official record, Nuclear Zone. His was a backseat
involvement, more as a sound advisor than as a producer. It wasn't until later on that producing
and deejaying became his livelihood. The record went on sale in 1993 and was quite a success,
going on to get included in many of the national compilations of the time.

The New World experience finally came to an end. But it allowed for the birth of THE OMEN,
which for many was the ultimate club. The Omen was so successful it quickly became a tourist
attraction, with clubbers from all over the country coming to Madrid every weekend to enjoy Oscar's sessions. This led to a change in his career. He gradually moved away from being an important resident dj to a travelling one. He started to travel regularly, taking the Omen sound all over the peninsula. Firstly to the north, and then gradually, to all four corners of the country. It was the beginning of Oscar's intimate relationship with airports and the road.

And so to the year 1996 and the third Sonar, a festival which had by then become established as one of the most important in the world. For the first time, the name of Oscar Mulero appeared among the list of national invitees, alongside others of his generation such as The Frogmen, HD Substance or Resonic. Sonar 96 served to officially confirm a whole new scene that had until then been in an embryonic state, but which was now being taken seriously for the first time and coming to be viewed as the seed of something solid. At Sonar 1996, Oscar held his own against stars of the stature of Richie Hawtin, Garnier and Mills.

Outside Spain, people started talking about his unique technique and musical selection. Another
mission accomplished. And so on to the next phase.

There was life after Sonar. The kind of recognition and support he gained as a result of his successes brought even more work, more travel and more big festivals, such as the Members of Mayday Festival, and culminated in 1998 in his first Session CD (the first CD of its type to be released in our country) entitled About Discipline and Education, released by the Catalan label So Dens, which was at the time closely linked to the organisers of Sonar. The musical selection was, for the time, very advanced and ground-breaking. A blend of the best of the dry, industrious sound of Birmingham, courtesy of people like Regis or Surgeon, and the best US sounds of the era,
represented by the likes of Jeff Mills and Joey Beltram. The CD was an huge hit. One of the biggest-selling electronic music CDs in the country ever.

Oscar Mulero official biography (Jan.2011)

Already a well known name on the underground circuit among the most faithful clubbers, Oscar
Mulero now started to appear in media headlines in the specialised and general press alike. Thanks to him, the DJ was now a figure taken seriously by the media who had until then viewed them as just another of the many night works. As he had done so on many previous occasions, Oscar was again opening up doors and blazing trails.

His second work was released in 1999. It was done with GROOF, an experienced producer from
Madrid. The two formed the duo Quite Unusual, on the GROOF label Brainwaves. They were well
received by critics and also enjoyed good sales. His first release with an international label came in 2000 on the French label Kobayashi. It was his first away match and first away victory!

That very year saw the birth of WARM UP and a couple of years later, its offspring POLE. From
then on, all Oscar's efforts were focused on releasing his own material, whether home or away, on the very best techno labels of the planet, such as Coda, Pure Plastic, Tresor, Sheep, Tsunami and Main Out. That put him definitively on the world techno map. Between 2000 and 2002 he released no fewer than 9 EPs, which lead to a contract with one of the biggest dj booking agencies of the time, Dynamix Booking from Berlin, an agency that also represents some of the best techno
artists of the world. From then on, Oscar was seen and heard in clubs and festivals from all over the world, more and more often.

In 2003 he released A Occhi Chiusi on the Pure Plastic label, under the name of TROLLEY ROUTE.
This was a totally mental electronic work that was also easy to dance to. That album ended a cycle and confirmed his maturity as a producer.

Since then, he has continued his relentless work producing and remixing with the very best techno labels the world over, and he hasn't stopped appearing on the electronic stage everywhere. Dr. Smoke, his alter ego, gained strength during this period as a showcase of Oscar's open and eclectic vision as a music selector, leaving techno aside and moving deep into territories such as electro, dub and IDM.

During 2008 Oscar significantly expanded his work map. Visiting the Movement festival in Detroit, China and Japan, he has left his mark on almost every continent.

During 2009, his international presence included forays into countries as exotic (from a techno
point of view) as China. As for studio work, that same year saw the digital release of the Trolley
Route album, the making of a CD mix for the prestigious Tresor Records label and the creation of the Seleccion Natural collective together with Exium, Reeko and Christian Wunsch.

Following a memorable anniversary party at Fabrik, Madrid, that was a huge success with the
crowds and celebrated his twenty years as a dj, we see the end of one era and the beginning of
a new one. From then on he is open to the use of new technologies and new projects, such as
the Pole platform, which picks up the thread from Seleccion Natural and gathers the best of the national techno scene under one banner.

Early 2011 will see the release of his first LP as Oscar Mulero, Grey Fades to Green. A double CD
also released as a 4 vinyl set which will bear testimony to Oscar's maturity and consolidation as one of the most important electronic music producers worldwide.
