Pantamuzik is a tribute name to Pantaleón Pantoja, Humberto Polar's childhood dachshund dog. He lived 20 years and refused to die though everyone wanted him dead and buried. That's attitude!!! In 1999 we started Pantamuzik in Bogota, Colombia. Our first album was made for Peru. It was called "Delahouse" Vol. 1 and 2 and it had a 25,000 copies release. Yeah!!! It was mixed by H. Polar, founder and for a while the only member of Pantamuzik. We released three more albums in Bogota: "Musica de Panta", a compilation featuring colombian musicians, "Electrodaca" and "Corte Unisex", all of them DJ mixes by Mono & Camila (La Sala Club´s resident DJs).
From the very start, we focused on finding great house and techno music produced by latin-american musicians, that reflects the vast cultural heritage that we enjoy in this part of the world as well as the best influences of quality dance music. Then H. Polar moved to México. México City is our home since 2003. In 2006 H. Polar released his "Micrometrías" EP, under the ST42 moniker. Around that time, Pantamuzik started producing the ALTEREGO parties, having H. Polar as resident DJ and many first-class guests: Samim, Richie Hawtin, Bill Patrick, Matt Nee, (from Kompute Music Chicago the great Diego Ro-k, one of the true pionners and finest techno & tech-house DJs in Argentina.
It was good to know the meaning of "success" from the very beginning, just to tell the difference between the simpler, cooler "well-being". Summarizing, we produce and deliver original latin american dance music. We make remixes. Eventually, we do some parties. We DJ. We live for the music, and we make our living through the music. Music is what we really love, the music that stays in our hearts when we go to sleep and is still there when we wake up. What we like: everything that is done honestly. Everything that respects the fact that music is an ART form and a CRAFT as well. Music has to be well done, showing respect to thousands of great musicians that preceded us. We love house music. We love techno. We love good sense of proportion. We love to party. We love electronic boldness. For the dance floor or the concert hall, or the bedroom.
