Pyrotec (aka Caesar Garcia) –
Music producer Pyrotec, aka Caesar Garcia, has been a fixture in the Los Angeles underground electronic music scene since 1998, with additional ventures in the pop and rock worlds. He is known for streaming a consistent delivery of DJ mixes, original tracks, and remixes in varied musical styles with driving beats that push the sound system. Transplanted from Mexico City, he was raised in Watts and the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles. He began DJing at age 12 and studied performing arts at Hollywood High School. Garcia has taught dance at various studios in the area and has choreographed competition teams. Much of his early music production was created for these dance teams to help their performances stand out.
As a producer, he debuted his first album, Computer Code, in 1998 under the moniker Future Jazz Conspiracy. That project gained him the attention of Iridium Music, which, at the time, housed artists such as DJ Reza, Eyal, and Pure Nova. This affiliation led to his first vinyl single, “Evolver,” on the Iridium Music label in 2001, as well as a spot on the compilation Higher Collective Consciousness (Iridium Music, 2001). Soon after, he began his own Conspiracy Lab Recording imprint. Through Conspiracy Lab, Pyrotec has released countless, remixes, bootlegs, and white label recordings, as well as long play sound collages and original works. The label was originally mostly an “only for DJs label,” though Pyrotec has widened his horizons in order to connect directly with fans.
He currently releases music thru Parisian label Overcooked Records and his Conspiracy Lab Recordings imprint. He also has affiliations with The Do Lab and The Future Jazz Conspiracy.
