A legend says a tiny baby basket was coming down the Guadalquivir river (Seville-Spain), inside a little one surrounded by cassette-tapes, a black cap and booties with phosphorescent ties. That fable was extended to 135bpm up to the present day, that little ‘angel’ was none other than Brunetto.
Musician, composer, DJ and music journalist born in Seville now based in Barcelona city whose passion for music far exceeds that one by Tim Burton for skinny and pallid face characters. Artist developed in the broken beats school, which has continued throughout its evolution without removing ear. Since that 80’s funky-rap going through the trip hop, 90’s rockist UK big beats, to post-dubstep, house, techno-trance, IDM or present future bass. Eclectic and connoisseur of the most important, what is in front of him, the audience! Same is able to keep busy a jammed floor with a blast of super danceable electronic music, than dazzle it with subtle sounds and textures. Multiskilling boy who equally loves Orbital, Kavinsky, Dust Brothers, Claude Von Stroke, Maceo Plex and Boards of Canada.
We could bore up even an oyster listing all the events and Fests where have been playing. To name a few: Sónar, Mutek, LiveSoundtracks, MP7 MACBA, Piknic Electronik, Move, Klubbers Day, Space of Sound, Territorios, Electroshock, Observatori, etc. Coordinated music for big events such as X Games, Nokia Totally Board, Red Bull. Carlsberg MTV or Suzuki. It has also left the imprint of his Adidas by countries like Canada, Germany or France.
As for his work as a musician, we take a breath and summarize… 4 solo albums released (“Déjalo así Bru”, “Homeself”, “B+” and the last one published “Sheroine”). “Sheroine” was released on Irregular imprint in April, 2014 becoming one of the Best Electronic+Indie albums that year in many Medias (link).

Add to the solo albums soundtracks to be played live (“Reinventing Alice”), backing for documentaries (“La casa de las sirenas”, “El fantasma de los deseos”…), music for commercials (“B-Side LED”, “BCS rotovators”, “Baumann”, “SAS”, “Pezqueñines”, “Barbadillos”, “Ikea”, “Baumann”, “Casio Exilim Lab”…), interactive books or games (“Unlocked”, “Guía de buceo de la Isla del Hierro y Tenerife”, “César redivido”), and remixed artists like Tricky, Pulshar, The Suicide Of Western Culture, AFFKT, Des Ames Libres, Ioan Gamboa, Heitt feat.
