The parable of the rocker DJ

Javier Zuker is a bassist who found his place in the music world behind a record tray


“The important thing is openness. Since the  sampler was in existence, things have changed and many rock groups have already adopted it as an instrument.

I met the  Divided ones in London and took them to know discotheques and  DJs . They saw that I could add new colors to the band. At first, his audience did not accept me, but when they saw me passing recorded voices, citaras and loops, they ended up applauding me”: this simple anecdote defines  Javier Zuker better than any explanation could do.

Those who know electronic music say  Zuker is the most  rocker of  DJs . And when I say “those who know” I mean, among others, Hernán Cattáneo: “I always knew that he was going to be the great  Argentine DJ : because he has that rocker touch that people love”, he says who he has been his friend for about 30 years.

In short,  Javier Zuker is a bassist who found his place in the  music world behind a record tray; he is the one who is encouraged to put Metallica and AC/DC in  Creamfields ; he is the one who takes the most  rocker of rockers to the electro, and turns his universe, even when it came to figures of the likes of Ricardo Mollo or Gustavo Cerati. Because in a world full of extreme positions, a little harmony is always good.
