Waldo G-1

World Music available for hire, based in Victoria

Having released albums in South America and Australia, Waldo G. has a unique standing within the local music scene. Waldo stands as the only Latin artist in the country to have grasped influences from the dancefloor and moulded them into a sound that can cross into both genres. His forthcoming album is testament to that.

To the Latin American community in his hometown Sydney, Waldo G. is a performer who brings them the rhythms and textures of South American music and for the clubbing community he’s producing these sounds for the dance floor.

His releases have a strong dance edge as on his previous 12” singles "Latin Vibe", "Give Me The Rhythm" and “Fiesta Latina” all of which merge Dance and Latin with a jazzy flavour.

Waldo G. has an impressive versatility as a musician, producer and writer. Besides forays onto the dance floor with his own music, Waldo G. also made his mark remixing two tracks for Disco Montego including their Top10 single "Beautiful".

He has written and produced two Latin solo albums under the name of Waldo Fabian; ‘Dejame Tocarte’, a South American release through Sony imprint Leader, and ‘Loco’, which was released locally by FMG. There’s also been a No.1 single on Chile’s No.1 station Radio Corazon with the title track from ‘Dejame Tocarte’ and "Latin Vibe" also secured high rotation on Radio Activa, Chile’s No.1 dance station. Waldo’s songs have gained great exposure in South America through a number of top selling compilations there. Waldo is also no stranger to the Latin American charts with production and writing credits on two hit singles for rising Latino singer Rachel.

Waldo has written and produced music for a number of local artists and also film soundtracks, his diversity is further emphasised through his role as founding member of Australia's pioneering jazz outfit ‘The Catholics’. He has also recorded tracks with an urban/r&b flava for his ‘Urbanism’ project featuring guest vocalists.

Waldo’s appetite for creating and performing music is never ending, from live appearances at Latin music festivals and the Big Day Out to writing and producing in the studio, his passion is indicative of his Latino background. So now after a couple of years spent becoming an audio engineer and more recently recording a new album, Waldo G. brings us his new single release on a special edition club promo featuring a new track ”Hot Chili”, and the classic “Fiesta Latina” which was released last year at Ibiza. The promo CD features remixes by the Aviators, Craig Obey and Waldo G. - both tracks have a mix from each of them. It’s an excellent slice of Latino/Dance for the summer parties and dancefloors and sums up the spirit and sound of Waldo G., Latin rhythms mixed with house and beats. The end result is upfront, vibrant and in the groove.
