It all began with a favour. When he was 15, one of Memek's friends back home in Colombia had asked him to store some DJ equipment for a few days. The same night, Memek found himself in front of a pair of turntables and a bunch of techno records for the first time. Having no idea what he was doing, he just started playing with whatever was there.
Now, ten years later, his DJ career is poised to take off. As minimoo's resident, he's played alongside some of today's biggest minimal techno artists, in the US and abroad. Memek's reputation for an energetic and at times totally sordid style of mixing has made him a favourite not only in New York but also in Detroit during DEMF and in Berlin at Watergate. He's currently working on music and will release a remix and some of his own tracks later on this fall.
