Audioelectronic is the alter ego of Portland-based producer and live performer Gustavo Lanzas.

A veteran producer with a deep knowledge of the dance-floor classics, Gustavo connects the roots of electronic dance music to the sound of today. His production skills have provided production/engineering assistance to artists on Ghostly, Traum, and Sentrall.
As a live performer or DJ, Gustavo has shared the stage with many electronic music luminaries – Disco D(r.i.p.), Twerk, Sutekh, Kit Clayton, Soul Oddity, Legowelt, Alan Oldham, Plaid, Broker / Dealer, TLR, Cosmic Force, John Selway, and many more.
As the head of Nude Photo Music, Gustavo now has a showcase to present his vision of dance music – from his studio, and also from talented collaborators and artists.
Coming from San Francisco’s explosive early 90′s rave scene, Gustavo began performing live electronic music as part of Protolab. Later, venturing into Jungle / Drum & Bass, Protolab is widely credited as the first Bay Area Jungle live PA.
In the late 90′s, after organizing some of the first all-electro underground parties in San Francisco, Gustavo teamed up with Jim Gourgoutis, and launched Cybrid. With releases on Belief Systems and Exact Science, Cybrid established themselves on the vanguard of the electro scene, defining what would become the sound of the San Francisco underground at that time.
In the early 00′s – residencies at long-running techno/electro club Impulse and at :Code at the DNA Lounge quickly followed. Gustavo became a regular DJ at numerous other clubs and parties in San Francisco, including Minimal Mondays, Scatter, Drum Machine Museum, and more.
Gustavo lives in Portland, Oregon, and dedicates his time to his family, music, riding bikes, and his business endeavors.
