Julio César Machado, also known as Hioll, has become one of the main influences within the rising electronic music scene in Cuba. Respected and admired not only in his homeland of Cuba, but among the entire techno community of the world.
Established Abstraction in 2017, the first electronic music label ever in Cuba’s history and which is dedicated to showing the most outstanding talents from the island. But that has subsequently evolved to welcome new international artists and, as such, become a widely supported source of dance-floor cuts.
As a producer, Hioll’s tracks exist in a powerful aesthetic crossroads, which looks simultaneously from the most daring and strange hypnotic Techno to the most bizarre and Industrial. He has many successful releases in respected and well known labels like Flash Recordings, Drvms Ltd, TMM Records, Suara, Knowledge, Trau-ma or his own labels, Abstraction and Hioll. Being played and supported by big industry names such as Dax J, Paula Temple, I Hate Models, Keith Carnal or Shlømo, just to name a few.
This suggests a versatile artist with a strong personality, capable of generating rich and truly unique ideas and, eventually, translating them into a varied context of unprecedented sound experiences.
