KIke Pravda




















Kike Pravda


Owner of SENOID™ RECORDINGS 



Born in Vitoria, the fans of Kike Pravda for music comes from very small. His parents worked in a music store, so I always had to hand both instruments of all kinds as analog machines. While his father, musician and electronic and sound technician, took home appliances such as the Roland TR 909 or Monopoly Korg keyboards DX7 to study or for work, Kike played with them and learned to program them, educating your ear starting with that today are classics of electronic music, not knowing yet that was beginning to lay the foundations of their future.

His early influences came from Acid House, most electronic that could be heard at the time. However, it was after watching a video of DMC when he decided that the world of the dishes was what he really liked, even to participate and win a contest. His interest in electronics grew and started buying vinyl and introduced gradually booths afternoon sessions, where he became familiar with the art of mixing.

In the early 90s, Kike get their first home, particularly in the now defunct Club Pravda in his hometown. The skill of Kike behind the desk attracted people from other cities, thanks to its exquisite musical selection, which included music imported from the US, England and Germany, thus turning into a club Pravda benchmark in the period. Kike reconeoce the influence from artists like Basic Channel, Robert Hood, Joan Atkins, The Advent or Plastikman, and labels like Sinewave, Downwards, Axis, Counter Balance, Dynamic Tension or Tresor.

Thereafter, he began a growing career that has led him to perform in halls and important festivals like Fabrik, Danzoo, La Real, Fever, Electrogaia or Santander Summer Festival, in Spain, or Treats Open Air, Fraiche or Underground, and outside our borders. This has led him to share cabin with world-class artists like Oscar Mulero, Ben Sims, Reeko, Exium, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Regis, James Ruskin, Luke Slater, Takaaki Itoh or Surgeon, among many others.

Given his passion for music, the next step in his career was clear. Kike soon venture into production. His first job was for vinyl coming-Katak Dutch label in 2000, under the name Phazer in a duo with his brother. From then until 2007, many collaborations on labels like Labrynth, M_Rec, Injected Poison, Digital Reflection or especially Psychoskunk, with whom he worked closely in many references on vinyl and in digital format. But it was not until 2009 when he saw fulfilled one of his dreams as a producer, published in the Warm Up Recordings label, which released "Fear is the Enemy", work that was accompanied by a remix of Oscar Mulero.

However, 2012 is the year in which Kike Pravda gives the final step. First, with a new release in Warm UP, "Queen of the Dammned", composed of two courts and, again, a remix of Mulero. And then, with the creation of his own label, Senoid Recordings, for whose first reference was assisted by Ben Sims and which has already sounded by renowned artists like Chris Liebing, DVS1, Truncate, Oscar Mulero, Exium or Marcel Flenger. But both Senoid Recordings as Kike not stop there, and you have confirmed your next great collaborations for references.
