CARLOS SOUFFRONT | GENERAL REPAIRING

Carlos Souffront is a music gourmet, a true DJ's DJ. His taste is rich and vast and he has the unique ability to create deeply rhythmic narratives that offer unexpected and exotic spices. He mastered his deep mixing skills with a cassette deck and a belt drive turntable in his father's den in Troy, home of contemporaries such as Mike Servito, Tadd Mullinex and Matt Dear. Equally entrenched in indie rock, post-punk, experimental music, ambient, rock, house, and techno, Carlos was always a man of many worlds - with an ability to traverse through them with a unique imagination. There is a mood to his search within sound, something that is heavy, deep yet gritty. Like many Caribbean transplants that end up in northern colder climates, he wonders where our rhythmic complexity is. For him, it is effortless and endlessly surprising to the listener.
