Bustamante is a Colombian DJ, founder of the Colombian Artistic Collective and the movement in Colombia called The Lab Sessions and the international podcast called "TLS Podcast". TLS constantly promotes new talents in the festivals held in various places in Bogota along with different national and international consolidated DJs.
Bustamante gained influence from the great sounds of Techno, Deep Tech and House from cities such as Berlin, Detroit, London, and Madrid. As a DJ and electronic music producer, his conviction is to protect the electronic culture and its musical lines.
He created the collective TLS that seeks to be a curator of impact and support emerging and consolidated exponents in the label. As he learned he became passionate about the electronic scene. He has opened doors in places of importance in the Colombian capital to develop his concept.
His concept started with a mix of Stem's and Steps Sequencers using Native Instruments D2 and D8 devices and with the eventual use of decks. Presently, he is in the production of his first 2 EPs and hopes to have great acceptance when presenting his work as a producer.
Guest DJ Juan Vera (second hour).
This week's second guest is Juan Camilo Rojas going by the moniker Juan Vera a professional DJ and producer born and raised in Colombia. His musical tastes are Minimal Deep Tech, House, Progressive Techno, and Tech House.
Aged 14, he started to get interested in the world of electronic music due to the electronic parties he was attending with his cohorts. Immediately, he felt connected with the people, and the music stood out during his inception into electronica.
His initial introduction stoked a positive reflection of the scene, and he had found his true calling, and consequently, he strived to become a DJ and producer. He started in his bedroom at home and almost immediately began performing for friends at parties and small events.
Then in 2019, he began studying as a producer at a music school. He intends to make his first release during the festive period this year. His disc jockey career took off whilst studying, and he has played in recognised clubs in Bogota, Colombia, such as Klan 31, Aftermood, and Centrico.
His introduction to the TLS collective has also highlighted his aspirations to another level. Since becoming part of the crew, he has begun generating new concepts and ideas for taking the scene forward in the capital.
