Chega junto pra mais uma edição do Lacuna Tropical Convida, onde você confere um set inédito pro Lacuna Tropical e conhece um pouco do que tá rolando no mundo das discotecagens!
E a convidada desta edição é o… Javier aka DJ Lazar aka CementO!
Argentinian born Javier Araya aka DJ Lazar when spinning in clubs or CementO when working in the studio, moved from Argentina and Chile to Norway in 1994 maintaining his childhood love for music especially 80’s electro. Exposure to the likes of Hardfloor, Thomas P. Heckmann and other European artists expanded his already diverse musical tastes. A chance listening to the now classic recording of Jeff Mills’ dj set from the Liquid Room in Tokyo firmly entrenched Javier’s interests in techno and fueled his need to explore the genre more.
Five years after touching down in Norway, and with encouragement from friends, Javier bought the necessary dj equipment and began honing his skills. By 2002 he began a residency at a little cafe lounge named Chateau Neuf playing a wide range of electronic music, eventually branching off to organize local club nights and parties, and hosting duties on various radio programs.
2001 Javier began working on his own productions under the alias CementO and has been refining his sound since then, catching the attention of UDZ Records and Prologic Records, two Brazilian dance labels who enlisted his services to remix some of their releases. Since 2004 he has been part of the Chilean electronic scene participating in a multitude of raves and parties as well as bigger events like Chile’s Open Mind Festival and the 2006 Chilean Love Parade – a collaboration between the Chilean and German embassies to bring Berlin’s Love Parade to Santiago.
In the last couple of years CementO’s hard work and diligence has paid off with his productions coming to the attention of a multitude of techno imprints. Musikpropaganda Label in Germany, and the Kidnapping Netlabel situated in Argentina have both been impressed enough with Javier’s production skill and sound architecture to add him to their artist rosters, signing EPs and albums in the process; with other labels looking at CementO remixes to augment their release catalogs attention is building.
At present Javier, not one to rest on his laurels, continues to develop and expand his production skills thru his CementO alias while not losing the dancefloor esthetics heard in his podcast mixes and nightclub appearances.
