Drumcell was born as Moe Espinosa in Los Angeles' San Gabriel Valley. Far away from the glamour and glitter of Hollywood, he cut his teeth growing up in a vibrant, culturally diverse neighborhood that still breeds inspiration for his work. San Gabriel Valley is also where he and the Raz brothers, Vangelis and Vidal, met and founded Droid Behavior in the early 2000s which lead to the infamous Interface warehouse series. A classically trained musician in his youth, Moe came to circulate around the Noise, Punk and Industrial scene, playing guitar and singing in various bands until he discovered the early '90s L.A. rave scene. That was when he got in touch with some of the heroic synthesizers of techno's early years.

From there, he was chuffed and ready to go all the way. Even though he has become one of the most popular Techno artists in the North American scene, you can still hear his Industrial and Noise roots in his work. His debut album "Sleep Complex" (released Summer 2013 on CLR) is characterized by a complete disregard for genre limitations and is everything but a conventional techno album.

His addiction to analog synthesis leads to countless hours in his studio, ceaselessly experimenting and searching for new, mind-expanding sounds. Drumcell has played at numerous prestigious venues wor
