You all know M.E.M.O from his stunning Remix of Christian Schwarz’s “Before You Told Me” – so let’s learn a little more about his buddy Tatalone
Juan Antonio Fuster Tatalone aka Tatalone (Palma de Mallorca 1984) is a lifelong fan of electronic music. He started DJing in the year 2000 at the “Deià crew” parties in Mallorca.
With contacts already under his belt, he co-founds the “Bassment Club” to reshuffle the island’s approach to music. Thanks to him, previously unknown artists come to Palma, such as M.A.N.D.Y., Tiefschwarz, M.I.A. Steve bug, Dfa, Mike Vamp, and an interesting etcetera.
After two years he moves to Madrid to broaden horizons. There he holds a monthly residence at different clubs across the city, including Cool Ballroom and Kathmandú.
His style, influenced from the start by grass-root electronic music, fuses the latest techno, electro, minimal and electro house trends.
Two years later he sets up home in Barcelona to learn all about musical production, studying a four-year Audio Engineering course at the SAE. This gives him the base to really get going, DJing in a range of Barcelona clubs (City Hall, Lotus, Nick Havanna, Hotel ME, etc.). He also has the chance to perform in clubs in Panama, Malaga and Seville. ( Sala eventual “Mad People”(Málaga), NEW SFX FESTIVAL @ IT’S AMAZING ( Sevilla), Buzz club ( Panama)
In Barcelona he meets M.E.M.O, his current sidekick, building a major friendship and an excellent working relationship. Both start producing tracks with a fusion of styles that certainly leave their mark. Tatalone’s patience and elegance and M.E.M.O’s beats, vast experience and born talent make this duo a true bombshell.
After 4 years in Barcelona he decides to head back to his home town where he gets back in touch with childhood friends Pig&Dan, who he has constantly worked with since 2008. Thanks to this, his tracks have been played at Cocoon @ Amnesia, and he has produced several tracks with them.
He still lives in Mallorca, where he is resident DJ at several clubs (Titos, Cassette, etc.) and is working with a range of record companies such as Myth Records, Boayer Records, and so on.
He lists his influences as: Pig&Dan, Guy Gerber, Patrick Chardronnet, Sebastián Roya, M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade, Depeche Mode, and Richie Hawtin, to name just a few.
