Ursula 1000 (ESL | Insect Queen Music) NYC
(Alex) Gimeno entered the music business around 1990. He was a DJ on Miami Beach for nearly a decade, and early in his career, he played drums for a band called 23. He also had his own show on the pirate radio station WOMB.
After extensive work as a DJ, he sent a demo of original work to Washington, D.C.-based record label ESL Music, which was immediately interested in signing him. On that label, Gimeno has released a number of original albums and several mix sessions.
He has done remixes for the likes of Quincy Jones, Felix Da Housecat, The Faint, Fort Knox Five to a slew of television remodels for themes to Sesame Street, The Powerpuff Girls, The Incredibles, and Yo Gabba Gabba. Scenes and promos for Sex And The City, Greys Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother, and Modern Family have also featured several of his remixes, as have marketing campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier.
His collaborations with Dr. Luke, Kool Kojak, Fred Schneider, Isabelle Antena, Shag, Cristina, Los Amigos Invisibles, Misty Roses, Federico Aubele to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the five albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda Kinky, Here Comes Tomorrow, Mystics and Mondo Beyondo. All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj skills and ear for the best in hip shaking groovers. Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronics finest like Deekline, Ladytron, Product.01, Malente and more.
In 2013, he started his own label called Insect Queen Music, releasing side projects like the space disco influenced Quentin Quatro. The Disco Quatro EP was the first release and the follow up, the Quatrophonic EP is scheduled for Spring 2014.
