Born and raised in Mexico, Ricardo Garduno, is no stranger to the global Techno underworld. Besides running his successful Techno imprint, Illegal Alien Records, he’s had numerous successful productions on some of the most reputable Techno labels around the world such as, Brood Audio, Sleaze Records, Driving Forces, Impact Mechanics and Machine Box just to name a few.

His music can be described as a perfect blend of organic and distorted twisted Techno! The deep, hypnotic grooves and unique kick drums pull you in and destroy any dance floor that they are dropped on! Ricardo’s music is heavily played and supported by the likes of Dave Clarke, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Dubfire and Richie Hawtin to name a few.

Besides his successful Techno moniker, Ricardo has a second alias as “Xordo”, which explores the more experimental Minimal/Tech House genres. The biggest accomplishment of this project so far was last year as he released his first EP on Dubfire’s SCI+TEC label. He is also part of the duo Pitchverb with Andre Ramos.
