Nettwerk Records is thrilled to announce the signing of producer and lofi-craftsman Chris Mazuera.
From rock bands to hip-hop, Chris Mazuera has done a little bit of everything and brings all of it into his unique style. A lover of music from a young age, Chris started his musical journey early by playing guitar for local bands in Miami. Ready to familiarize himself with the industry, Chris moved to New York City and began working with local producers in hip-hop and lo-fi. Energized by both the musical process and the ability to make entire tracks on his own in the genre, Chris released his first album Monstera in 2018. From then on, Chris’ career has focused on collaboration and innovation across genres. Before Nettwerk, his work was released with several labels like Lofi Girl and Chillhop. He’s also produced for several artists such as FELIVAND, Nafets, Jessica Domingo, and Habe. He wears his inspirations on his sleeve, taking insights from a diversity of artists and bringing them all together into an eclectically unforgettable production style.
Today, Mazuera shares “Sonria,” the first single from a forthcoming Nettwerk debut release. “‘Sonria’ is special to me since it marks a time in my musical journey when I first started becoming comfortable with sampling,” says Chris. “I’ve always created music by playing all the instruments myself, but when the city ordered everyone to stay home, I was looking for ways to keep myself inspired, which led to me messing around with sampling. It opened my eyes to a completely new way of not just making music but also listening.”
Chris Mazuera joins Nettwerk’s expanding roster of instrumental artists, including goosetaf, Nathan Kawanishi, SCayos, frumhere., Fletcher Reed, The Alaskan Tapes, Slumberville, and others.
