Helado Negro @ Holocene

The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called "peÑas" provided a foundation for Helado Negro's interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE releasing their debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me. Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork's Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth. He also produced Prefuse 73's 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian.

"Roberto Carlos Lange (aka Helado Negro) has a knack for making music and art that is lifted above the plane of reality. His sounds and visions are infused with the buoyancy of high concept but never bogged in cold calculation. They levitate like an island floating gently under the tug of a billion balloons brought skyward through creative energy. His palms sway close to the Sun." - Dublab
