bio

One of the underground’s most requested remixers and head of the Clarisse Records label, the ever-ready Mendo has well over a 100 tracks to his name released over a 15 year period and has stamped his style across some of the best electronic music labels going Saved, Defected, 8bit, Noir Music, Terminal M, Get Physical, Suara, Viva Music, Rekids, Great Stuff, CR2, Material, Tronic, Circus Recordings and Cadenza, of course, have all taken delivery of high points from the four-deck specialist.

A spinner since the age of 15 and the holder of a quintessential ‘music is life’ philosophy – this after inauspicious childhood inspiration was provided by acid house, new beat and anthems such as Technotronic’s ‘Pump Up The Jam’ - Mendo’s career from this point forward has thrived on the excitement “to produce a song, then play it in front of thousands of people and make them hysterical.”

Certified smashes ‘Everybody I Got Him’, ‘Gringo’, ‘Aventuras’ and ‘Inocencia’, which won the Vicious Music Award for Best Release in 2011, has meant plentiful praise ever since George Morel helped the Swiss high roller pick the lock to the studio. Peers such as Marco Carola, Loco Dice, Luciano and Carl Cox are part of the Mendo fanclub. His modifications for artists and label owners Steve Lawler, DJ Sneak, Nina Kraviz, Deadmau5, Yousef and Hot Since 82, mean his remix rating is unassailable.

A mainstay when it comes to traversing international dancefloors, Mendo has lit up the twin titans of Pacha and Ushuaia in Ibiza, and descended on Tokyo’s Womb, Berlin’s Panoramabar, NYC’s Cielo and D-Edge in Sao Paulo to make major cross-continental impact. Normally fully booked for festival season as well, Mendo is up to his armpits in wristbands, having chalked up appearances at Spain’s Monegros Desert Festival, Hungary’s Balaton Sound and B My Lake, New York’s Electric Zoo, Budapest’s Cinematine, the Lovin Ibiza Festival at Space Ibiza, and Croatia’s Beachattack. He adds the not unreasonable train of thought that “the key to a successful party is to get girls dancing; once they dance, everybody does.”

His Clarisse label has been dropping heat and upping antes since 2003, set up with right-hand man, previous remix target and Club Science co-member Chab. Flourishing into a sureshot imprint stocking club class from Yvan Genkins, Oxia, Jay Lumen, Audiojack, Danny Serrano, Ross Evans to name a few and plenty of Mendo himself, the expansion into hosting Clarisse Nights across Europe now features a diamond dozen of in-house, in-demand DJs. 2013 was when Mendo’s ‘Avalon’ LP became the label’s centerpiece. After a careful period beforehand of revision and reconstruction, it received rapturous support, alluding to the album positioning clubbers “at a beach bar drinking cocktails at sunset.”

2014 saw Mendo up his game even further. While no stranger to success, a residency in Blue Marlin Ibiza, remixing Monika Kruse's 'Summer Drops' or Damian Lazarus 'Lovers Eyes' released on his own label Crosstown Rebels, July this year saw an unprecedented four Mendo tracks chart simultaneously in Beatport’s Top 100, with his remix of Hunzed & Harvey’s ‘Sheeta’, reaching #6 which earns him to be #35 all-time most charted artist on Resident Advisor.

The dictionary definition of ‘mendo’ is a type of mythological spirit or demon. When it comes to house music, Mendo only deals in actual fact.
