Born in Japan where ultra-tech meets Zen, ElectroSoul United (a.k.a. Nino de la Torre) fuses vintage and futuristic sounds and beats to create innovative music that unites electro + soul. Hence, the artist name.
He uses vintage synths, Rhodes piano, bass, and drums as well as samples and software with talented vocalists to produce funky, soulful, electronic soundscapes that touch the minds, bodies and souls of humans and robots alike.
Nino attended school in Canada and got his first synth at the age of 13. Soon after he was playing in rock and new wave bands. When he was 20, he returned to Japan where he was introduced to acid jazz and house at the tiny but trendy bars run by friends who were Japan's pioneer DJs.
Nino releases his own music as well as produces and cowrites music for other projects.
His music has been aired on radio programs, MTV, MuchMusic, SKY TV, etc. around the world as well as used in movies.
