ANTS Radio Show
Every Thursday 23:00 CET
Francisco Allendes was born in Chile and introduced to music from a very early age. At the tender age of nine, his parents bought him a violin, on which he continued to be classically trained for eight years and which took him to play in numerous chamber orchestras and folk groups. At 17, his musical taste took a turn when he first discovered progressive rock and synthesizers.
Soon after, he began to produce his own music and naturally he also moved on to discover the art of DJing. In 2001, he laid his hands on his first Technics and he progressed rapidly to join the circle of professional Chilean DJs. His first productions soon launched him onto the scene and led him to perform at some of the biggest festivals in Chile as well as giving him exposure to the international circuit.
Francisco Allendes arrived in Ibiza in 2010 and immediately signed up a residency at Ushuaïa Beach Club, a venue renowned for the underground music revolution that year and the place that launched the current Ushuaïa Club as it stands today.
That season Allendes released the track Esa Nena Quiere on Steve Lawler’s label “VIVa Music” - a record that immediately became an overnight success and received high acclaim from Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Reboot, Josh Wink and Tania Vulcano. In 2011 he was called up by Sven Väth and asked to be Cocoon resident of their party in Formentera (Tipic Club) – a collaboration that continued throughout 2012.
In 2013 he went on to cement a monthly residency at ANTS (Ushuaïa) and throughout that summer he played back to back with Paola Poletto there, as well as performing at Loco Dice’s Used + Abused parties and at the Privilege Closing Party. In fact Allendes has become of course no stranger on the Ibiza scene, having gone on to play parties regularly every season including at Hï Ibiza, Space, Privilege, Amnesia, Sankeys, Underground, Heart and also having recently becoming the presenter for the weekly ANTS Radio show which airs on Ibiza Bpm Radio every Saturday
