Carlos Ortega aka ALÜEN was no stranger to music growing up in Guatemala. From a young age he started playing drums and paying attention to different genres like rock, metal, hip-hop, rap and the one that he felt more connection with, electronic music. He soon acquired admiration for sounds made with machines, that weren’t mainstream, but could make you dance for hours. His interest kept on growing as he listened to local and international djs play records in bars and clubs. This is where the majority of his inspiration came from.
In 2012 he started playing in a famous local bar of Guatemala called THE BOX LOUNGE GROOVE where later he acquired a monthly residence. As his mixing skills continued to grow he started playing in different venues and parties. This lead to his name being well known in Guatemala’s underground music scene. Today he describes those skills as a way of sharing positive energy and connecting with the audience through music.
His taste in electronic music has evolved during the years and now he likes the versatility of playing different sets each time. He plays melodic and groovy sounds like deep house, tech house, afro house and progressive, to obscure and abstract minimal, deep tech and techno sounds, depending on the atmosphere of the party. He has played in Los Angeles, Goa, the majority of venues in Guatemala, Vancouver (where he currently resides) and most recently Mexico.
His unique style and evolving groovy minimal sounds have captured many dance floors around the world. Expect many more to come. .
