Two years since his last release on the label, Hernán Cattáneo makes his return to Balance Music with ‘Balance Presents Sunsetstrip,’ the next plateau of concept mixes to come from the label. Out this summer on 2 August 2, the release will be available in a limited edition 2xCD bundle, and on digital, and streaming platforms worldwide with a limited edition 2LP vinyl package to be available later in October for collectors. Featuring over 30 tracks with almost all selections exclusive to the release, listeners can look forward to hearing tracks from Brian Cid, DAVI, Hernán Cattáneo & Soundexile, Khen, Navar and many more.
Fascinated by the synth-pop and post-punk of the 80s, Hernán discovered the futuristic sounds of dance music coming from Detroit and Chicago. Completely consumed by his new-found love, he progressed naturally to DJing. It was through his residency at Clubland in Buenos Aires that lead to him meeting Paul Oakenfold who catapulted him into the global sphere.
From those first steps with Oakenfold’s Perfecto, through to the golden years of progressive house with the UK label Renaissance, and then onto his Balance mixes, ‘Sunsetstrip’ marries his love of music with his work ethic.
Hernán Cattáneo: “‘Sunsetstrip’ is a tribute to the energy, light and vibration going on at sunsets. It’s an album based on the shows I’ve been doing for years in places like Woodstock 69 in the Netherlands, the Big Playa at Burning Man, boat parties around the world, and recently at Punta del Este in Uruguay, along with the polo fields in Buenos Aires, Argentina. These kinds of shows are a big part of my schedule every year, and doing this album with Balance is a great opportunity to showcase what they’re all about.”
