Essex, UK-based producer, DJ and live performer Sergio Vilas
returns to SubSensory Recordings with his second full length
album, Universal Child. Universal Child builds on Sergio's strong
discography on SubSensory, including a 2014 full length LP, 'Route
94,' and his 2018 vinyl-only 'Rebate EP,' released as part of the
annual Record Store Day UK celebration. Sergio's tracks have been
supported by the likes of Carl Cox, Colin Dale, Jon Rundell and
Jaguar (on BBC 1). In fact, Cox played many of Sergio's tracks on his
'Global' radio show. Universal Child showcases Sergio's effortless
ability to deliver timeless techno sounds with a touch of soul. Listen
closely and you'll hear the nods to Chicago, Detroit and of course,
the UK sounds of Sergio's youth. Driving, often-jackin' percussion
fused with pulsing chords and pumping bass make every track a
dancefloor filler. Each track brings distinctive energy, from the
stomping rhythms of Detroit Day and the hypnotic sub bass of
Universal Child, to the minimalist atmosphere of Tubular. Original

Sergio Vilas is another pseudonym for this techno producer. He has previously produced under Kube 72 and D00sh. Under Kube 72 he toured Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and America and had numerous releases, one of which Carl Cox signed for the Space 2010 CD. Kube 72 has been a DJ since 1996 and has played alongside artists like Carl Cox, Dave Clarke, DJ Rush, Technasia, Joris Voorn, Green Velvet and many more. He has performed at clubs like Tresor (Berlin), Turnmills (London), Waegenburg (Hamburg), Club Grant (Poland) and at Festivals like Glastonbury (UK), Summer Spirit (Germany) & The Love Weekend (Berlin). He mastered his skills as a techno DJ not just on two but three decks and has had a residency in Dresden at the Triebwerk Club for the past 8 years. He had his first release on Tekkxp Records and since then has had his own productions supported by the likes of Carl Cox and Laurent Garnier to name but a few. Since then he has appeared on Subsensory Recordings, Teggno Records, Stripped and many more.
Under D00sh he has had his tracks played from Colin Dale to Nick Warren and has played at London’s famous Ministry Of Sound. However it’s Sergio Vilas that has taken over the producing duties and since being signed to Subsensory has allowed him to produce the old style techno that manages to include the techno sound of today, blending and bending the rules to make the sound he wants to. It is through this success that has helped him get continued support from Carl Cox, SLAM, Bryant Zentz, Adam Jay, Claude Young, Colin Dale and many others. Through Subsensory Sergio has really been able to push the sound he wants to create. With the success of five EP's already since 2013, Sergio then released his first album on the Subsensory label called Route 94. This album was supported by Carl Cox, Colin Dale etc and featured heavily in Carl Cox’s sets and on his Global Radio show. Beatport also named it as their number one picked by the staff.
Route 94 is a blend of techno that not only takes a elements of the past but from the influences of today's techno routes. From Chicago to Detroit, London to Berlin Route 94 delivers the sound that so many have come to know of Sergio but with a few surprises.
Sergio has been producing and touring the world for over 15 years, now settled in the UK, he’s back in the studio producing more tracks for his ever growing discography.

Later in 2018 he will release his follow up album called Universal Child, this album will be out on Subsensory and will include a limited 100 copies 2 track Vinyl EP.
