Cordoba-based artist Axel Zambrano was influenced by music and instruments at the age of around 15 years old. And over the years, he began to lean towards electronic music. In his 20’s he became interested in mixing, surround, melodic and groove sounds. Eventually, he found his fusion of Progressive House & Melodic Techno.
He has released on many great labels as there are Dear Deer, Fragrant, Univack Records and many more. Soon he will have a track on Parallels, a various artists compilation brought to as a collaboration between EMA (Electronic Music Anthem) and Tanzgemeinschaft.
Ahead of the release, we had a short chat with Axel Zambrano to get to know him a little better.
Stay tuned, the release is foreseen for April 14.
Enjoy the read.

Thank you for your time and welcome to the Tanzgemeinschaft. For our readers who don’t know much about you, could you tell us a bit about your musical background?
Hello, how are you? I hope very well!! Since I was a child I was always influenced by music, mainly percussion and string instruments, as the years went by I discovered different types of musical genres until I found Electronica, I liked it a lot and from there I decided to start to play as a DJ. After a while, I already felt that I should start creating my own tracks.
When you work on new music, is the dance floor always something on your mind? Or does a certain vibration or flow sometimes transcend that?
I really like the groove on each track, I always start with that part, but I also think a lot about the track, and the audience!
Later this year you’ll have a track on our various artist compilation. Tell us all about that job. How did this come together? From the idea to the creative process and the final result.
The beginning of this track, the truth is that it was very sentimental and had moments of change. I got carried away a lot by the melody and harmony itself.
Do you believe in the possibility of “reading an audience” and how do you put it into practice? Is the relationship with the audience on the dance floor collaborative or, as Derrick May once said, a “battle”?
For me, it is very important to read the track and to read your audience because without them there is no party or show. I like the idea of my sets being one story from beginning to end.
What do you find most challenging in the music business?
Today you must have a lot of marketing to be able to achieve a good business, social networks are the most challenging for an artist today, in my opinion.
What is the biggest lesson you have learned along the way?
To grow, you have to be patient and persevering.
What do you have planned for the rest of the year? Any new music or collaborations we should know about?
For this new year, I want to expand my music to the world a little more. New collaborations are coming and excellent artists will soon have news!
If you could have produced any record in the world, what would it be?
The truth is that I don’t have a preference, I really like music in general.
What are your best musical memories? In his house? In your neighbourhood or town?
In my house I always locked myself in my room I listened to music even from my grandparents, there I learned a lot hahaha
