ERNESTO FERREYRA

DJ & Producer

He was 13 when he landed his first job as a radio DJ, in his hometown Cordoba, and later on, he let music be his guidance and enjoyed playing in clubs. After traveling to many cities around the world, Ernesto’s passion and curiosity determined him to explore the cultural influences that could help him pursue new approaches and improve his style, slowly focusing on music production since his arrival in Montreal.  

In summer 2010 Ernesto was resident DJ at Ushuaia Beach Club with none other than Luciano, and from 2010-2012 he was a longstanding resident at Vagabundos Pacha. During the winter of 2010 Ernesto released his debut album ‘El Paraiso de las Tortuga’ which received an abundance of press plaudits. This has all been combined with touring across five continents non-stop with and without the Vagabundos including some of the world’s best clubs include Berlin’s Watergate and Panoramabar, Tokyo’s Yellow, Fabric, Pacha and Ushuaia, Ibiza. Ernesto’s crisp, seductive cuts appear on labels including MUTEK, Crosstown Rebels, Cadenza, Musique Risquée, Cynosure, Memoria, as well as curating remixes for Manuel Araneda, Acirne, Adam Marshall and Luca Aniston.

His music represents his journey, his exploratory side through a crazy admixture between Latin groove, emotion, energetic beats, jazz, nature sounds and Northern minimalism. Inspiration comes from within and from the outside, adding hours of hard work.

As a host of Pitch Control, Ernesto Ferreyra will take on the mentor role for the whole 4 days of the program, having 1on1 sessions with the participants in the studio, as well as group sessions, provide feedback on music production and personal advise regarding techniques, work process and style.
