Los Chicharrons

About Los Chicharrons: As anyone who’s ever tried to mix heavy drug abuse and base jumping will attest - from the comfort of a powered wheelchair, naturally - some pairings simply don’t work. So how, you might well ask, can Los Chicharrons be? Ramon Santana and Morten Varano make up the unlikely partnership that is Los Chicharrons, and a better testament to the importance of brawling with convention at every corner would be near impossible to find.

Ramon was born in the Dominican Republic (the home of Merengue and Johnny Pacheco), and grew up within earshot of the voodoo drums of Haiti (the birthplace of real trance). Relocating to Williamsburgh, Manhattan in the mid ‘60s, he gradually steered a course towards Corona Queens, where a period of a rich musical development began.Inspired to DJ by records pilfered from his brother, Ramon’s first date with the wheels came with a gig in 1978 at The Orange Peel club, a venue for hooky players (bunking off school) located on Broadway and Havmeyer.

Morten Varano’s background is something of a contrast to his musical spar. Born in Copenhagen, he started playing piano aged 6, and at 14 began playing ‘indie-rock-techno-pop’ in his first band. A precocious musical talent, Morten became something of a pop star in Scandinavia as a result of several major label signings and his thoroughbred good looks. Indeed, he’s said to have the clearest complexion of any Tummy Touch artist, and is seldom knowingly introduced to anyone’s girlfriend.
