Ernesto Ferreyra Biography

Born in Argentina, Ernesto Ferreyra travels the world in pursuit of musical enlightenment. From Mexico, to Montreal, to Berlin, Ernesto proves rhythm knows no borders.
The die was cast early when Ernesto began to collect records by Depeche Mode, Jean Michael Jarre and Pink Floyd, which led him to discover house music, at the time, a little known sub-culture in Argentina. At age 13 the precocious music fanatic landed a job as a radio DJ in his hometown of Cordoba, at 14 he was spinning at under-18 discos, by 16 he was a fully-fledged club DJ. He made a pass at conventional career planning but found his time at university revolved around weekends in the clubs. “I saw my path was marked,” he says, “It was music.”
Determined to see the world, Ernesto moved to the maelstrom of Mexico City, where he lived for three years, DJing all around the country and taking the first steps in his production career. Next, he moved to Montreal, drawn by the vibrant creative culture of Canada’s electronic music hotbed. There his production career moved into high gear, driven by friendships with MUTEK artists and – in particular – Guillaume Coutu Dumont, who he records and performs with under the Chic Miniature moniker. It wasn’t just the creative talent that spurred Ernesto. “The cold helps too,” he jokes. “You wind up buried in your studio working all the time.”
There is more to Ernesto’s music than just putting in the hours, though. He defines his sound as a mix of Latin groove and taut Northern minimalism. His records reflect a boundless curiosity about life, emotion and sensation. “I love jazz, soul, funk, Cuban rhythms, rivers, mountains… crazy movies like Tim Burton, history books – everything is an inspiration!”
In summer 2010 Ernesto was resident DJ at Ushuaia Beach Club with none other than Luciano, and from 2010-2012 he was a longstanding resident at Vagabundos Pacha. During the winter of 2010 Ernesto released his debut album ‘El Paraiso de las Tortuga’ which received an abundance of press plaudits. This has all been combined with touring across five continents non-stop with and without the Vagabundos including some of the world’s best clubs include Berlin’s Watergate and Panoramabar, Tokyo’s Yellow, Fabric, Pacha and Ushuaia, Ibiza. Ernesto’s crisp, seductive cuts appear on labels including MUTEK, Crosstown Rebels, Cadenza, Musique Risquée, Cynosure, Memoria, as well as curating remixes for Manuel Araneda, Acirne, Adam Marshall and Luca Aniston.
Not one to rest on his laurels, 2013 for Ernesto now comprises of setting up a label with his partner Guillaume Coutu Dumont in Chic Miniature, preparing a live set to be presented in summer and working on music with talented producers like Mirko Loko, Dewalta and Cesar Merveille. Ernesto is currently working on new releases for this year, so watch this space.
