MONARCH SF presents:
COSMICA MUSIC Launch Party
COSMICA MUSIC is a vinyl only limited release label based in Patagonia. Our first release with an orginial by Dubmasters and remixes by Musik Nonstop and Arturo Bass has been extremelly well received by the international Dj community.
Our second release features another Dubmasters original with remixes by Phunktastike and Ilya Santana, to be released the week of Monday September 12th, available worldwide.
DUBMASTERS is a live act from Argentina, formed by Marcos Fernández (Guitars, Bass, Synths, Arrangements) and Maxi Cayón (Drum Programming, Sequencing, Ableton Live).
They have been playing and touring extensively in South America, Mexico and California for the past seven years and now they are focused in the studio to finish their debut LP by the end of this year.
Their history together goes back to the 80's when Maxi's father Luis Cayón was the owner of the local record store, and also the DJ at the hometown's nightclub Aquelarre, an extremely fancy rendition of Studio 54.
Growing up to the sounds of Black Power funk, Psychedelic Disco and Techno from the old world, Maxi and Marcos developed a sharp taste for groove that translates easily into their music.
Playing together since 1989, their carrer evolved along the House Music Scene and they quickly became renowned for their eclectic extended dj sets.
With a constant urge to express more truly our musical vision, by the year 2008, it seamed natural to shift into performances including live instrument overdubs, rhythm machines and endless analog delays... and almost inadvertedly, DUBMASTERS was born.
With two releases hitting hard on dancefloors all over the world, whether it's Tokyo, London, San Francisco or Buenos Aires, the DUBMASTERS SOUND is here to stay.
Supporters include DJ Rocca, Daniele Baldelli, LTJ Experience, OOFT!, Salvatore Stallone, Garth, Jeno, Tim Sweeney and many more.

As a kid in New York, he used to sneak into Manhattan to go to CBGB's and Club 57 to hear bands like Bad Brains, Bauhaus, and Liquid Liquid. He never got caught.
He first got on a set of turntables at the age of 8. He encountered the RAVE in late '90 and really enjoyed it.
A founding member of San Francisco's seminal Imperial Dub Recordings, he produced, co-produced or had a hand in a few of the records that helped to define the locale's influential sound.
He started tracking with Layne Fox and Jay Williams around 2001 and really enjoys being part of the emblematic group "40 Thieves".
