FRANCISCO ALLENDES THE RED HOT PRODUCER FROM CHILE IS ON FIRE THIS SUMMER BOTH IN THE STUDIO AND AT HIS ANTS RESIDENCY. WE DISCOVER HOW HIS STORY BEGAN

You entered music via a different way to most DJs, your way in was via the violin. What’s the story?

My dad wasn’t sure I was going to take it seriously as 7 year olds don’t normally ask for such a thing, but I convinced him and yes, I loved it! When you learn music as a small kid you get introduced to it like its a game, so it was fun.

I heard fellow Chilean Luciano helped the move to Ibiza?

I met Luciano in Chile at a friend’s place and gave him a vinyl from my label Andes Music. He was so excited hearing about a Chilean vinyl record label that he offered to do a remix for us. A couple of weeks later he came back to us saying he really liked and “why don’t we release it on my label Cadenza instead?” I was so happy. I made a few other tracks which Luciano would play that the Ushuaïa Ibiza crew also liked and they soon got in contact asking if I was interested in being a resident at the club. I put all my clothes in a bag and moved to Ibiza as fast as I could.

How quickly did you settle into Ushuaïa Ibiza?


During the first 3 months I had the chance to play with every DJ I could ever have imagined. I played every Friday for Tania Vulcano’s party and every Sunday as resident for Fireland. I also got the chance to warm up at a Cocoon after par- ty on a Tuesday morning, I was supposed to play 2 hours but ended up performing for 7 as the guest didn’t arrive. The party was so cool that they asked me to play

for every Cocoon afterparty in Ushuaïa Ibiza for that summer. So yeah, my first 3 months in Ibiza were very intense!

Why is Ushuaïa Ibiza so special to you?

Ushuaïa Ibiza has grown to become one of the world’s most important clubs and this creates a special vibe around it. People from all around the globe come here to spend the time of their lives and experience a party like never before. All the team members that work there know this and they make every effort to ensure this happens, it’s a huge human team taking care of every detail you couldn’t imagine! This inspires and motivates me to play my best sets there, and every time I play I try to do even better than the last time.

What’s coming out this summer from you studio wise?


I just had an EP on Viva Music which was a tailor made project requested by Steve Lawler himself, I’m so happy to be back on his label. In the next few months I’m also releasing on Sola (Solardo’s label) Lost Records (a remix project I made for them), I’m appearing on a This and That Lab VA (Davide Squillace’s label) and I have a vinyl release with 8bit (Nick Curly’s Imprint). I also have several releases com- ing out on Armada Subjekt and have a few more tracks still to signed. Wow!

And finally, true or false? You once had 11 dogs? Whaaaat???


It’s true, my wife and I are huge dog lovers! Most of my dogs have as long named after them: ‘Agility Queen’ is for Aroa she is very good in agility classes - and ‘Animal Communication’ is for Yaya - who once got lost and who we found via animal telepathy. But that’s another story.
