JackWasFaster is the name chosen by Madrid based producer Manuel Cachero (guitar, synth and electronics of Spanish well known indie-electronic band FIRA FEM) for his solo project. His tracks and remixes are aimed firmly at the common ground between synth-driven electronica, dark disco, dreamy post rock, obscure Balearic, raw house or Weatherall´s post punk vibes.
After some time playing DJ sets and promoting parties at most of Madrid’s clubs, he‘s now more focused on production. His first remixes (FIRA FEM, ROLE, NIMIO) got noticed enough for him to be part of the Madrid 2015 edition of RedBull Music Academy Bass Camp. After that, he started releasing for labels like Envy, Bucketround and Voyeur Music. Most people would probably recognize his name from Álvaro Cabana’s Rotten City. It was on this label that he released his first original on a compilation also featuring Kieran Holden, Gameboyz and Cabaret Nocturne. His EP “Straight Edge Dance” was premiered by Sónar Festival and is getting really good reviews.
His hardware-based live sets are his main weapon, however, with some really positive feedback at festivals like ArteNou and VillaManuela, nights like Versal and Danzeteria (bcn) and big clubs like Mondo, Razzmatazz or Siroco. 2016 most important fact is his presence on Sonar Festival in Barcelona, which will doubtless cement his position as one to watch in an already impressive Spanish music scene.
