Biography

  • Born in Argentina in 1984, Sebastian Lopez falls in love with electronic music since he is very young Loving the characteristic sound from Chicago and Detroit, he begins his professional career in 1998. With only 14 years he gets his first reside..
    Sebastian Lopez was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He became involved with electronic music since very young, taking as reference the musical career of his older brother Gustavo Lopez Lover of the characteristic sound of the 90's in Chicago and Detroit and even more of the modern German sound, Sebastian began his career with only 14 years by creating a group called Equinoccio. By these times he had a strong techno sound, his Lives full of energy and solid groove positioned him as one of the young promises of the Argentinean electronic scene. Soon later he began to change his style, being influenced by more organic sounds from the U.S. west coast. Styles like House, Deep House and Tech House led him to present himself to the public as Junior Lopez. His first DJ sets were a great success and thanks to the impact they caused, he earned the respect of some of the best national DJs and producers. In the early 2001 he moved Europe to expand artistic and personal horizons with a proposal from Sum Records label to create a sub division in Madrid. Together with Diego Cid, he was one of the engines of Luxury Grooves, label that marked a milestone in the Argentinean electronic music history. They edit a surprising amount of vinyl of Argentine artists, among which were two ep's signed with his name, two ep's with his brother under the alter ego Low Sound and countless remixes which round out the historical catalog. During this period Junior got fully involved in the management of Record Labels, together with a night agenda that brought him to discover many countries of Europe and America and, with only 19 years, to play at Space Ibiza. With Luxury Grooves already extinct, he decided to change course again and that is how he landed in the city of Barcelona where he got together with his older brother with whom, in less than a year, became a fundamental part of the local scene, earning the respect of the public and local DJs. 2006 was a year of change, with a solid experience, Junior decided to step to the digital revolution and to change analog vinyl format for a –then new- digital mixing system. And created what today is a great platform for digital music: Acktivism Recordings. To be part of the MP3 revolution he associated with Beatport.com, which at that time was just a little electronic music store and now is probably the largest market for sales and distribution of electronic music in digital format. Without doubt the label met expectations, as it was one of the Spanish labels with highest sales in 2008, and discovered many artists who would later be part of major labels as Minus, Spectral, Stockholm Ltd, CLR, SINO, Sci Tec, among others. In 2007 Junior went back to his techno roots and stands out more and more as a producer, by this times his alterego "Flug" is born, pseudonym under which he released some of his greatest hits on labels like Alchemy, Stockholm Ltd, Sleaze, SINO, among others. But he never gets too far from House music and his track "Junior Lopez - Deep City" reached the top 4 of the Deep House chart at Beatport. Many of its tracks were in the top 100 on Beatport. Without a doubt the many years of experience and dedication to produce, paid off to the dizzying career of this young artist, who traveled more than 100 cities in Europe and America. His interest in technology led him to create a different kind of styling the classic and known dj sets, which are characterized by an unusual setup and always surprising devices. His ability to play two opposing styles such as house and techno generates an eclectic climax in each of his sets.
