Aitor Etxebarria is the man behind the mystic artist from Bilbao El_Txef_A. Aitor, born and raised in the Basque Country, is in that group of artists sparingly measuring their output, always searching for the new, aiming for high quality instead of constant, monotonous releases. El_Txef_A stands for a specific and complex sound signature. His primary concern to develop a sound that people can identify with as well as just simply enjoy freely.
In his discography we find releases on labels like Permanent Vacation, Mule Electronic or Hypercolour. Aitor has released two long play Albums “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” (2012) and “We Walked Home Together” (2014) on his own imprint, Fiakun.
It’s common to see him playing every week around Europe and America. At an early age, he has played in many of the leading clubs in the underground scene like Watergate (Berlin), Verboten (New York), SpyBar (Chicago), Module (Tokyo). [ Photo © Lars Borges ]
