Blue Lunar Monkey
Live & DJ
Blue Lunar Monkey started playing the keyboard at the young age of thirteen, eventually moving onto the guitar which would later inspire him to make his own band. Throughout his career, Daniel Gradilla played lead guitar in several rock bands, where “Naranja Mecánica” stands out for being the first Mexican band to be signed by Universal Music International with a very popular hit single and a video that swept Latin America off its feet. Despite the success of Daniel’s band, by 1998 BLM had already been attracted to a whole new world of possibilities, floating into the realms of ambient and trance music. Without leaving his studio work aside, he co-founded Mandala, one of the pioneering organizations that promoted psytrance and its inherent lifestyle as well as studing Sitar and Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sound) in India. Since then, his trailblazing talent has taken him around the Earth’s orb to present his magical and spiritually-inspired music that consists of two major sides: Psytrance and Downtempo, which despite their differences, consequently bring Blue Lunar Monkey’s resonance to a harmonious balance within the transcendental roots of the tribal ritual. He has released 6 full albums, as well as many EP’s and , singles for compilations on labels worldwide like Planet BEN, TIP Records UK, Transient Records UK, Solstice Records Japan, Synergetic Records Austria, Maia records Mexico, SpeedSound Records Brasil, AP Records Germany, GOA Productions China, Tycho Recs Canada, Undergroove Records Mexico, Uxmal Records Mexico, Blue Tunes Records, Altar Records Canada, to name a few.
