Ursula | Mondo Beyondo
We had the pleasure of watching Ursula 1000 and Anna Coppa Cabanna perform at Mod Miami this past Spring 2011.
Alex Gimeno is a DJ best known for Ursula 1000, a wide-ranging musical project including lounge, breakbeat, glam and cha cha. His albums and mix sessions have taken on a broad scope of retro tinged spy grooves, bumping latin disco funk, hints of post punk, electro, go go, sleazy glam rock…And he never stops evolving. You can hear it in his 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 for Sex And The City, Grey’s Anatomy and How I Met Your Mother popped even more with a helping of a little Ursula as have campaigns for AT&T, Samsung, Adidas and Grand Marnier. Gimeno was born in Brooklyn, New York. During his childhood, he and his family moved to Miami Beach where his father, a member of the Spanish orchestra, Los Chavales De Espana, had an extended residency. He moved back to Brooklyn in the late 1990s. Ursula 1000 (aka multi-instrumentalist Alex Gimeno) sets his time machine for globetrotting mutant grooves for this collection of brand spanking new originals features the inimitable Fred Schneider of the B-52s, French avant-jazz singer Isabelle Antena, Thievery Corporation chanteuse Natalia Clavier, Big Mike Geier from Atlanta’s premier big band Kingsized and introducing Ms. G.
