The incredible story of Juan Martinez !

You maybe don't know it, but Juan Martinez aka Philtronic aka Italian Vocals has been pretty active in the italo scene without ever getting famous ! Sad

Now he's getting more and more attention because of the several releases who came on his label recently...Laughing out loud

But here's some info and rare stuff about this guy ! He's making italo for now several years ! he actually released 2albums, totally italo ! and several Vynils with his Philtronic project !Smile

and the Planeta Mix label is old ! PlanetaMix Records started in late 2002! it was actually "Planeta Mix Records Brasil" (i'm not sure it was Brasil but since i searched a lot it seems to be pretty true).

So he started his adventure with a 2003 project : Philtronic.

He released 3 singles under that name :
Philtronic VS I Santo California "Tornero 2003"
Philtronic "I Want You 2003"
PhilTronic "Electronic Music"

Then came 2 albums ! YES 2 albums ! containing covers and original songs !

The first album is "Super Star" and it contains 13 Tracks

Tracklist

1- Megamix super star by juan martinez
2- Tornero
3- I want you
4-
5- Super star
6- Ritma da noite
7- A little respect (ext version)
8- (WHAT A BOMB Oh Really!!)
9- Electronic music (ext version)
10- I want you (dark mix)
11- Groove cut
12- Ready to dance
13- The party is over (ext version)

Then later came another one with 17 TRACKS (Oh Really!!!) entitled "Flying in the music"


Tracklist

01. Sing for My Soul
02. Sento Le Campane
03. Electronic Music
04. A Little Respect
05. (Better than original for me.. Tongue)
06. I'll Fly with You (felipe Abel Remix)
07. I'm Your Deejay
08. The Party Is Over (radio Mix)
09. Dreamland
10. Cheerful Song (fast Drums Mix)
11. The Music Is Forever
12. Progress in the Melody
13. My Riddle
14. Future Beat
15. Dancing Together
16. Feel So Good
17. The Shade

He also worked on Philtronic Feat Luigi Mangini - I Fiori Di Lilla a cover from the Hit Bomb from Danijay in....Brasilian TongueTongue !!

You can actually listen to some of his productions from 2003 on this site
http://www.musiedicion.es/ (wait for the loading then click on "discos" on the right and select a track, sadly the titles aren't specified)

I think most of the tracks are pretty good.. I'm actually talking with Juan to get these CD asap to post some audio previews !

Anyway i searched if there was a reference for theses albums and singles, i couldn't find one sadly..

But later from 2005 to 2007 he released several Vynils, they aren't italo sadly, at least, not every vynils.. Here's the list.. most of them are impossible to find.. or only available via illegal download.. (some are maybe available @ Juno)

These following references different from the actual PlanetaMix Catalogue !
For example PLAMIX001 got released in 2005 and was "DJ Juan Martinez - Easy Lady" on Vynil and another PLAMIX001 got released this year and is "Italian Vocals the Album"

..Yeah it's pretty confusing.

So between 2005 and 2007 came on his label :

DJ Juan Martinez and Luis Dedalo - Easy Lady - (PLAMIX001) - VYNIL (2006)
Miky One DJ Vs DJ Juan Martinez - Welcome To Life (PLAMIX002) - VYNIL (2006)
DJ Juan Martinez Vs_DJ Tururu - Countdown - (PLAMIX003) - VYNIL (2006)
Sweet Dose - Electro XPeriments - (PLAMIX004) - VYNIL (2006)
Rakel - I Gave You My Life (PLAMIX005) - VYNIL (2006)

Hardcore_Brothers - Brain Brothers Chapter I - (PLAMIX006) - VYNIL (2007)
Kike Dj Vs DJ Sergio - If Your Not This Here - (PLAMIX007) - VYNIL (2006)
DJ Mortadelo - Da Bassklubbers -(PLAMIX008) - VYNIL (2007)

Also released but didn't find the reference, but available for download on some sites :

DJ Juan Martinez feat. Lilian - Loca de Amor
(he's working on it actually, he will release it soon in english version)

DJ Juan Martinez feat. Lilian - Turn Into Love

You can see he was already working with artists like Rakel Tongue !
You can search for them on the internet..maybe you'll find Juno links, but most of them are rips from the illegal Scene..

Then as we all know, came in 2008 the definitive label PlanetaMixRecordsSpain, with now 17 releases in their catalogue, pretty much all italo !


Anyway i hope you enjoyed my investigation Laughing out loud and discovered some great things about this producer called Juan Martinez who diserve some attention now ! hehe Laughing out loud

Lucky65. Smile

[PS] Maybe i'm not right about everything i haven't asked everything to Juan Martinez, I mostly searched on the web to find these infos Shock.. maybe i'll update it if i got some new and links to listen his old productions !
...to be continued then !

[UPDATE] Just when i thought this guy could not produce more I just found that he released not 2, not 3, but 4 different albums !

In 2002 between the release of Living in the music and Superstar, he released "Time's Melody" containing 16 Tracks !

[img]http://i.s8.com.br/images/cds/cover/img5/168365_4.jpg|/img]

Tracklist
1. Dance Lover´s
2. Carillon
3. Pump The Jam
4. sucesso This Dance Move Your Body
5. escritor Hyono Dance
6. Let´s philtronic Go !!!
7. Disco sucesso Dance
8. Eletro Progression
9. Way Time´s Melody For Me 1
0. All U Dee Jay´s
11. The Love To Down
12. Time´s Melody
13. Our Dreams
14. Hyono gratis Dance
15. Eletro Progression
16. Way For loja Me

Then he released his 4th and last album called "O Retorno de Philtronic" containing 14 Tracks

Tracklist
1. Braços Abertos
2. Não À Razão
3. Todo Amor
4. Abre Tua Mente
5. Seguir Amor (Radio Edit)
6. Move Your Áss (Dança Sensual)
7. Cuando Voltaras
8. Só Você Não Vê
9. You Will See (Radio Edit)
10. Leave A Light On (Radio Edit)
11. Carrie
12. Te Amo
13. Glory Of Love
14. Caipirinha Mix 2

It's an impressive discography, and apparantly he had a lot attention in Brazil and he's considered as the importer of the italo dance in Brasil. Too bad his albums never reached Europe cause he could have been among the other italo classic since his music has a really good quality and not the amateurism of his last productions on Planeta Mix Spain...

Most of these albums are impossible to find, even on google it's hard to find a piece of info on them, however, you can buy his last album here : http://www.vitrola.com.br/loja/busca.php?tipo=1&valor=philtronic&tipopesq=1&tipo=1&Buscar=Buscar But good luck with that if you're not talking brazilian !

First heard of him in 2005 with Saray - Jungle In My Heart (Juan Martinez Italian Mix) which I still think is his best track along with Sing for my Soul of course, if that's indeed him. Smile

Would be really cool to hear those old albums! Also curious about the Easy Lady cover! Cool

Tanks to Juan Martinez, many young brazilian people, became a fan of Italo Dance:D

And now, many Italo Albúns and Singles, are avaiable on brazilian music stores!!!

And the most important to me, Some great Italo Artist like Sanny J, will arrive here next month (march) in the city of Gramado and Joinville, both in south of brazil, and I will be there:D:D:D

Some productions that have not been named: Manu Gz or Paulo Roberto, between others.

Juan Martinez has done big things for this music, sometimes in such a way that I don´t like much (covers, weak ideas...) but he has helped to make of this italo genre a hit in Brazil and keep it alive now in Spain.
In Brazil it has got a golden disc and has done productions in other styles (pop, bumping ...). Nowadays he is devoting to the pop dance and latin style with another label.

Juan had thought left definitively italo music in the summer of 2007, because of his music was not valued by any label of Italy. In this time he knows some persons (me included) that advise him to continuing and creating a project: Planet Mix Records (associating % with the businessman and super dreamer Jluis_dj)... Now he is employed alone in different projects, while Jluis and romantic Lavino take the economic and productive part, respectively, of Planeta...

Story not to sleep of princes and princesses ....or the king and the beast... Life must continue Smitten

Guys, I dont know for sure, but I think that the first four Philtronic albuns was made by the brazilian guy named Felipe Abel.

There are differences in the style of the songs made by Felipe Abel aka Philtronic and by Juan Martinez..

Do you have any sources backing this up?
