It's hard to think of successful, hard-edged, Latin-American DJs without thinking Federico Agreda Alvarez, best known as Zardonic. The Bass titan has released original tracks with three time Grammy award winner Skrillex's OWSLA label and America's top Drum & Bass DJ Dieselboy's Human Imprint label; toured the entire world with a busy event schedule from his hometown Barquisimeto to Tokyo; gained worldwide air plays on BBC Radio 1; featured his music in live DJ sets by Knife Party, Bassnectar, Skream, Benga, Andy C, John B and the likes; shared the stage with créme de la créme DJs like The Outside Agency, Audio, Calvertron, Dylan, DJ Hidden as well as world renowned characters like Zombie Boy (famous for his cameo in the video 'Born This Way' by Lady Gaga), The Mexican Vampire Woman (Guinness World Record of the woman with the most body changes) and metal titans Dimmu Borgir; and that's just for starters.
Born and raised in Venezuela, Zardonic encompasses everything from Glitch Hop and Electro to Drum & Bass and Hardcore, all while wearing a frighteningly enigmatic mask that has become his personal brand and signature.
Accumulating a prolific total of almost 100 releases to date since his first metal project demos till the present day solid full lengths, Zardonic has released several singles and remixes for majors like Nine Inch Nails and Beyoncé. His 2012 LP debut Vulgar Display Of Bass charted as the #1 Drum & Bass release on Beatport, getting more than 1,000,000 plays (and counting) for his track 'Bring Back The Glory' in YouTube, and the participation of 45 countries in the official video for 'Revolution'.
The remix album 'Far Beyond Bass - The Vulgar Remixes', released on grammy nominee AK1200's label Big Riddim Recordings, features 12 remixes of the tracks contained in the original Vulgar Display Of Bass album, all crafted by top artists like Black Sun Empire, State Of Mind, Counterstrike, Neonlight, Delta 9, and many more; charting #1 in the Beatport top 100 Hardcore / Hard Techno releases.
