One of the underground’s most requested remixers and head of the Clarisse Records label, the ever-ready swiss-born Mendo has well over a 200 tracks to his name released over a 15 year period across some of the best electronic music labels.
Over the years he’s stamped his style across some of the best electronic music labels going Clarisse Records, Desolat, Moon Harbour Recordings, VIVa MUSiC, Circus Recordings, Elrow Music, Saved Records, Knee Deep In Sound, Crosstown Rebels, Defected Records, Material, Rekids, Terminal M, 8bit, Toolroom, Tronic, Wow!, Cadenza Records, Classic Sneak, 100% Pure, bouq., DJ Sneak Classics, Get Physical Music, Suara, Ultra Records to name but a few.
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 dance floors, 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.
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, and as such we’re glad to have him as one of the family.
