Label Profile: Konkwest Music (FR)

<

Konkwest Records and Konkwest Records 2 form Konkwest Music Group and is the brainchild of native Argentinean DJ/Producer Lucas ‘Konkwest’ Bailach. Soon after he emigrated with his parents from his native Buenos Aires to Paris, France many years ago, Lucas soon realised that he wanted to deliver powerful house music productions as a way of living. This soon lead the way to the creation of his two newly-based French labels, and focused on delivering the best music from the hands of renowned and up and coming Argentinean talents as well as world class producers such as Ciudad Feliz.

The result is a journey into strong house and tech house-oriented productions for demanding audiences and dancefloors across the globe. The goal, Lucas states, is to “become the best media for Argentinean electronic artists to release quality productions via our fresh labels KW Records, oriented to funky and deep house, and KW2 Records oriented to hard beats, techno and tech house”.

The Label artists:

Lucas ‘Konkwest’ Bailach

Lucas Bailach Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1978 and is one of the top upcoming Argentinean producers. He has been involved in the French electronic music scene since quite some time ago and it was earlier after he emigrated with his parents from his native Buenos Aires to Paris, France many years ago when he soon realised that he wanted to deliver powerful house music productions as a way of living. He has produced several scores and remixes for many labels out in France, Canada and USA such as Red Menace, Stickman, Aquarius, Brique Rouge and Movin among others under his alias Lucas ‘Konkwest’.

Currently living in Paris, where he is performing live, DJing and producing music for the underground scene and music industry as a remixer and arranger since 1994, he is also actively running his newly-released French/Argentinean labels KW Records and KW Records 2, in cooperation with the renowned Argentine DJ/producer group of Ciudad Feliz.

Ciudad Feliz

Ciudad Feliz is a group of producers born at the South American beaches of Mar del Plata, a small city outside the capital of Buenos Aires, Argentina. A young Julian Sanza initially founded the project back in 1996. Soon after, musicians and local mates Ariel Lanfrit, Lucciano Siclari, Juan Martinez and Fernando Pulichino joined the project and teamed together as Ciudad Feliz. After a couple of years of strong dedication and commitment, Julian and Fernando moved to England with desire to enhance their production capabilities.

Nowadays based and living in Leeds, England, Fernando and Julian work their magic in their studio as the main characters behind Ciudad Feliz and Silver City. Good vibes, commitment, and a down-to-earth attitude always ruled as natural mood of this group. After two years of intense work as DJs and offering a stunning live act, they became one of the top figures for electronic music scene in Argentina. Being discovered at Winter Music Conference in Miami in 2000, they have released a series of productions through different independent labels in France, Canada and USA, giving talented musicians a wider audience for their sound. As a result, their first singles are being featured in different compilations and Ciudad Feliz is strongly gaining territory in the international scene as one of today and tomorrow’s brightest house music producers.

Having already released several productions on labels such as Silver Network, Aquarius, 3 AM, Konkwest & Soundplant, plus their work on 20:20 Vision as Silver City, many of you will already be familiar with their sound. Ciudad’s trademark sound is pure ‘peak hour funky deepness’. Just listen to any of their productions and you will be taken in by wicked ingredients such as unique percussion and powerful live funky, dubby basslines.
