Ursula 1000

Ursula 1000's Website, Myspace, and profile on ESL Music

ESL Music’s URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ Alex Gimeno. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk electro go go, sleazy glam rock…And he never stops evolving.

You can hear it in his remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles and Yo Gabba Gabba.

Scenes for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and Ugly Betty popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for At&T, Samsung and Adidas.

His collaborations with Dr. Luke, Shag, Cristina, Los Amigos Invisibles, Misty Roses, Federico Aubele to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the three albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda Kinky and Here Comes Tomorrow. All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj skills and ear for the finest in hip shaking groovers. Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronic’s finest-Deekline, Ladytron, product.01, malente and more.

While traveling the world dj-ing at places like Fabric, The Big Chill Festival, Shambhala or even at his home residency at APT, he takes in all his experiences and turns out his turn ons into a psychedelic brain stew.

And from this brew ESL brings you Mystics.

This 12 track album returns from journeys into outer space giving us an epic collection of psychedelic sonic sorcerey. Zig-Zagging further away from the cheeky vintage breakbeat rhumba of previous records, this time the Brooklyn beat-wizard ventures into tougher and more angular territory: beats banging harder and bass popping louder. Drawing from a variety of new influences and collaborations, Ursula 1000 delivers lethal doses of dirty booty-breaks, gothic sexcapades, electro dancehall and disco-funk filth.

At once playful and dangerous…Mystics is a cry to the stars.
