Stereo Productions founder, DJ, Producer, Remixer and Iberican Sound Ambassador. Half of Chus & Ceballos!
Chus L. Esteban, Madrid 1971, started his professional career at the end of the 80’s in his home town, amidst the full-blown euphoria of the acid-house movement at ‘Alien’, one of the first clubs of the famous Kapital Group. In August of ’92 he was invited to play at the mythical Portuguese club Kadoc, where he was fortunate enough to share the booth with the best international DJs of the time, witnessing from a privileged position the dance music evolution that took place during the 90’s. It was then that his style, influenced by the Portuguese and American underground sounds, definitely converged into house.
When In September ’94 Madrid’s first house club, Teatro Kapital, was inaugurated, Chus became the clubs first emblematic resident DJ, lasting an extraordinary 10 years. While at the same time maintaining his relationship with Kadoc. His innate desire to create and improve led him to try his hand at production, with the guidance of the then up and coming David Penn, a logical and well chosen step in his career.
Along the way Chus was to meet someone who would influenced the following 10 years, Pablo Ceballos whose techno background gelled with Chus’s house style. From this fusion emerged the Iberican Sound concept which then evolved into a worldwide movement. The Iberican Sound is his trademark, a personal vision of house music, which has contributed positively to the worldwide electronic music scene, and which opened the door for things to come, the oportunity to play in Ibiza, a passport to the top100DJMag and the recognition of the whole international community reflected in the many awards Chus has collected throughout his career. ‘DJ of the Year’, ‘Best House DJ’, ‘Best Remixer’ or ‘Best House Label’ from Spanish Deejay Magazine to name but a few.
All this has culminated in a recording legacy of over 20 years in the form of original productions or remixes either solo, with David Penn, Pablo Ceballos or many other partners in crime. From this list stand out such themes as DJ Chus ‘That Feeling’, ‘Harmonica Track’ or ‘Back2NY’ as DJ Chus & David Penn ‘Baila’, ‘Will I’ or ‘Burning Paris’, as Chus & Ceballos ‘Iberican Sound’ ‘In Stereo’ or ‘Baguio Track’ and remixes like ‘Hell in Paradise’ for Yoko Ono, ‘Dark Beat’ for Oscar G & Ralph Falcon, ‘Hang Up’ for Madonna or the latest ‘Not Myself Tonight’ for Christina Aguilera.
