Francisco was born in Chile but moved to Germany in 1991. His sound is crisp and delicate progressive trance music, with crossover elements from psychedelic trance, progressive house, tech house and tribal. Both style and substance for home listening, but certainly also with punch and grooves for the dance floor.(Iono Music). His life is progressive music, he's not interested in Full-on or Chillout.
You've seen him playing the second floors at all the big festivals in Germany, his sets at Lovefield and Voov are legendary.
Francisco Oyarce Zavala comes from Chile, but lives in Hamburg and calls himself - El Zisco. He also has this passion that was until recently a very well kept secret - the passion for producing music. Intensely. In all areas of progressive music, whether it is House, Tribal Techno, Breaks or Trance. After some test tracks on several compilations, DJ Asherun hand picked a selection of his tracks to tell a beautiful musical story which shows the amazing range of El Zisco..s work. This is the best introduction an artist can have. Let..s see what will happen with El Zisco now. ..(kai mushroom magazine)
Based in the german psytrance-capital Hamburg and originally born in Chile, El Zisco is one of the rising stars of the progressive wave, recently getting featured on compilations from well-respected labels like Dance N Dust Records and Plastik Park. Despite being a relatively new name on releases, he has been a part of the German scene for many years, both as a producer and since 1998 also as a DJ.
His talents in DJ'ing has brought him to play at some of the biggest psychedelic festivals in Germany (and in Europe), including the mother of all psychedelic trance festivals, VooV Experience, where he played a very memorable set in front of a thrilled audience on the alternative stage in 2004. Other famous festivals where he has played include Lovefield 2003, Excalibur 2003 and Fusion Festival, where he has played no less than 3 times (2002, 2003 and 2005)!!
El Ziscos sound as a producer is a delicate blend of progressive psytrance, progressive house, tech house and tribal elements - very tight and stylish, and with a production of seriously high quality. ..(Dance n Dust Records)
