In 2001, Squat moved to France, where he multiplies his musical experience: after 15 years playing with his band Pánico, he set up his own Machi project. At the same time in Chile, Castro continues to deepen his electronic explorations: making studio work, releasing records with his band, heading his label, Condormusic and, in parallel, going deep into Latin-American folk music with his Andesground project.
In 2015, the return of Squat to Chile allows these two friends to meet as if they had never separated.
When they connect their machines and instruments, the alchemy is there: Compadre begins. They describe their music as free, solid and full of reliefs. Their Chilean electronic antics will find a name and a new genre: Electro Cordillera. Cosmic, playful and extremely enjoyable, ElectroCordillera, their first record, is made to make the pachamama (mother earth) and their guests loose their minds on the dance floor.
