Buenos Aires-born Hernán Cattáneo talks to DJsounds’ presenter Nina De Man from Pioneer’s Dawn of a New Species event – the Belgium launch night of the new CDJ-2000 multi-player – held at club Noxx, in Antwerp.
In this interview the South American all-star discusses his all-consuming passion for subtle music, his deep, groovy, emotional style, and his feelings about the new ways of working with hardware/software that will be available via the CDJ-2000.
He also talks about playing the festival circuit and his forthcoming DJ bookings around the globe that include the mighty Creamfields.
The Belgium CDJ-2000 party was held in conjunction with various international Pioneer DJ events, including simultaneous launches at Ministry of Sound in London and at Pacha in Ibiza.
And, following on from exclusive VIP introductions to the new CDJ-2000 with rekordbox software, the general party kicked off at Noxx with DJs Pole Folder, Hernán and Pioneer’s own X-ian. Words: LRC
