Atmospheric Ambient Space Music
Why this name?
It's about a guy who was travelling along the galaxy, alone, into his dusty spaceship for millions of light-years. He was lost in space and time, but now he finally arrived to this strange weird planet.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I'm JoaKín, I was born in Buenos Aires. Since I was a child I naturally was very attracted by music. Also I became a great science fiction fan: books, movies, TV shows, games, everything about it. When I was teenager I got hooked up with the progressive space rock from the '70, bands such as Hawkwind, Pink Floyd, Ash Ra Tempel, Tangerine Dream, Gong and even Black Sabbath.
I learn to play guitar and bass, and soon played in a few bands.
Later I discovered an amazing music style: Ambient Dub. This influence together with the advent of new technologies decided me to start a solo project.
I began Spacebum in 2000 In order to produce atmospheric space music.
In 2001 I completed my first production ' Starends ' , and the second one in 2002 ' Night at Sky Beach '. Both albums are full of space ambient, cold techno and dark dub tracks mixed up with some movie quotes. They were distributed in independent way, obtaining good acceptance. In 2003 I participated on a various artists album, 'Chill Out Asia', published by Pattaya label. By 2005 become 'Beyond Dooms Day' where the space ambient becomes more strong, but mixing with more tribal rhythmic elements and a more exotic instrumentation.
In 2006 and 2007 I was producing a side project called Sahumerio, more dub and chill out oriented. www.soundclick.com/sahumerio
In 2010 I finish a brand new Spacebum album "lost in space". This new material is more moved and more energetic than other works, have powerful rhythms and speed bpms. The ambient still remaining but in parts. I hope you enjoy it.
