As from the age of 14, Gaston Laterza has been feeling deeply attracted to electronic bands such as Depeche Mode, New Order, Duran Duran, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, etc. It was at this age when he started to play at local pubs having in this way his first contact with the public. In 1995, he gets his first show at a club playing Tony Humphries, Frankie Knuckles, Graeme Park and Danny Tenaglia’s kind of music. Since then, Gastón has played at several known clubs of Buenos Aires underground such as, Vai-Ven, Enigma, Back Stage, etc till he gets his residence in Umanno, one of the most elitist places at that age, where he plays classic house, deep house and retro disco. A year later in 1996, Gastón meets the person who is going to influence him the most and from whom he learned the craft and how to manage the dance pit, we are talking about Hernan Cattaneo, with whom he keeps a close relationship.
It is in that year that he decides to be a DJ for the rest of his life, he starts doing it more and more profesionally and continues working at Umanno for some years till he changes to Follia, where he plays at the VIP his characteristic style.
