Hypomania is a mood state characterized by persistent disinhibition and euphoria. Co-founder and resident of BULTO, Colombia’s first queer techno collective, Hypomania was one of the most prominent curators of Bogotá’s emerging scene. With a sharp musical selection, his sonic universe was not defined by one single style and managed to go through different genres, from ambient to hard-hitting mental techno, until reaching up the euphoric BPMs of broken beats and trance.
Being part of the scene from different fronts for more than a decade, it was only until 5 years ago that he decided to start playing the music he has been collecting over all these years. He took his sound to important clubs such as Video Club, Baum and the extinct Billares Londres, bigger stages such as Tatacoa Festival and Radikal Styles, and recognized radio shows like Radionica, Blu Radio and Red Light Radio in Amsterdam.
Alejandro Arango aka Hypomania passed away in May, 2023. His impact on the Colombian Techno scene, and his legacy, will be remembered forever.
