Nacotheque pesents JUAN SON!!!



NEW YORK, NY - The anticipation is getting higher with only two more monthly Nacotheque parties at Fontana’s this October ‘09. On Sat, October 10th Nacotheque presents a live performance by Juan Son from Guadalajara, Mexico performing songs from his new album “Mermaid Sashimi”. Sporting smeared black eyeliner and eclectic, theatrical costumes, “Son doesn't look the part of a typical Mexican pop star - he's more Panic! at the Disco than Ricky Martin” says SFWeekly.

For the past two years the producers of Nacotheque Marcelo Cunning and Amylu Meneses held a bi-month party in the basement of Fontana’s. After many fun-filled nights the producers decided to go back to doing one-off special events when the time is right.

The Nacotheque parties have been going on for three and a half years in NYC and the producers assure everyone the party’s not over yet…

Juan Son began his musical journey at a very early age:” I remember my first band, named Knuvo… it was a pop rock group and it was my first shot at being the lead singer of a band,” recalls Juan with a mischievous tone. A few years later, Juan Son traveled to England to study music at the London Center of Contemporary Music. “I have very fond memories of that part of my life… I had several musical projects going on with people from all walks of life (French, Australian, Mexicans, etc)… that made everything so much more interesting. The projects were called Novocaine and The Care Bear!”

After a year experimenting in England, Juan Son returned to Mexico and Porter was born… “Porter actually began prior to me leaving to England, but it wasn’t after I returned from Europe that we started working 100% on it and molding it. ”Porter lasted 4 years and during this time they released an EP "Donde Los Ponys Pastan" (Where the Ponies Graze) and a full album “Atemahawke". Their unique style and approach to music led to them to being invited to participate in such important festivals as Coachella and Vive Latino.

With the demise of Porter in 2008, Juan Son began working on solo projects and February 2009, he released his debut album titled Mermaid Sashimi, which has received critical praise… Mermaid Sashimi is composed of songs that were written before and during his time with Porter. Unlike the music that catapulted Porter’s performances before massive audiences at Coachella and Mexico’s Vive Latino, “Mermaid Sashimi” is a more organic approach at expression that strays from traditional guitar- and drum-driven beats. In this album, music samples created by ambient effects and sounds are enhanced by Juan Son’s trademark ethereal vocals.
