Born in El Salvador, and now residing in Vancouver, ANDROMO has earned his name as one of the hardest-working DJs out of Central America. His Rainforest Music brand represents an electronic music artist collective, record label, and event production company, through which ANDROMO hosts many of the world’s top DJs. Since his arrival in Vancouver 3 years ago, ANDROMO has quickly established himself as a well-respected artist, even landing a residency at the city’s renowned Gorg-O-Mish nightclub.

On December 7, ANDROMO will release his very first solo EP on Rainforest titled Day Attack. Comprised of two originals, Day Attack fuses deep, atmospheric melodies with driving percussion to deliver a truly captivating record. Here to shed light on Vancouver’s music scene, it’s ANDROMO.
