An eclectic pioneer who has exported his unique brand of melodious and elegant house and techno from his motherland Chile to Europe and beyond, since his distinctive style has brought him global acclaim. This past 2015 Felipe Valenzuela reached a great scope on the international scene with several notorious gigs around the globe, with a tremendous positive feedback playing at remarkable events and venues like Sonus Festival, Concrete París, Tresor Berlin, Space Ibiza and residencies at Club Der Visionaere (CDV), Hoppetosse, Vagabundos, Luciano & Friends and Melisma Series among others. Felipe started 2016 with several new releases, remixes and collaborations as the new V.A. on Nastia Propaganda label, both Melisma series and limited label releases, and on his new project Cure Music, just to name some of his upcoming work.
MELISMA Melisma is Felipe Valenzuela and Dani Casarano imprint, a respected and well-stablished underground label whose cornerstones are innovation and creativity over all, and based on the most avant-garde sound in electronic music. Ricardo Villalobos, Thomas Melchior, Fumiya Tanaka, Dorian Paic, Valentino Kanzyani, Shonky or Ryan Crosson are some of the artists already released their music on Melisma.

CURE MUSIC In 2015, Berlin-based Felipe Valenzuela with Momo Trosman has launched his new and very successful side project, Cure Music. An exclusive platform looking for the most concrete and avant-garde sound on electronic dance music. The first release of the label immediately sold out, showing the essence of Felipe´s new concept.
