Ursula 1000
Ursula 1000
URSULA 1000 is the alter ego of Brooklyn, New York based producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist Alex Gimeno. His 7 albums and mix sessions have taken you on a time machine ride of retro tinged exotic grooves and futuristic electronic disco funk fusions. Altering the past for a better tomorrow.

Originally signed to Thievery Corporation’s Eighteenth Street Lounge (ESL) label, Ursula launched his own boutique label Insect Queen Music to house his entire back catalog and future adventures.

His collaborations with Fred Schneider of The B-52s, Isabelle Antena, Dr.Luke, Kool Kojak, Lady Bunny, Puddles Pity Party, Shag, Cristina/Ze Records and Los Amigos Invisibles to name a few brought forth sheer magic on the six albums, The Now Sound of Ursula 1000, Kinda’ Kinky, Here Comes Tomorrow, Mystics, Mondo Beyondo, Voyeur and Galleria (which hit the #1 spot in the NACC Electronic Charts!). All Systems Are Go Go and Ursadelica showed the world his dj and taste making skills and Undressed had it all re-imagined by electronica’s finest like Deekline and Ladytron.

He’s remixed 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. His songs have been used in TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, Sex And The City, How I Met Your Mother, Bored To Death, Entourage, So You Think You Can Dance, the Emmy nominated documentary NY77:The Coolest Year In Hell, America's Funniest Videos and films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Blue Crush and Pink Panther plus ad campaigns for Adidas, Grand Marnier, Skyy Vodka, Samsung, AT&T, Kelloggs and more. Some of his music has been used in video games like Destroy All Humans!, NBA 2K9 and Tap Tap Revenge. Ursula’s also created sound design/runway music for Issey Miyake, Desigual, Prada, Miu Miu, Hugo Boss, Miss Sixty, H&M and Christian Dior. The 2018 Olympics in Korea used his song Kaboom!

You can find him traveling the world (30+ countries clocked and counting!) performing at Fabric, Shambhala Music Festival, Corona Sunsets, Razzmatazz, Summer Stage, The Big Chill, Glastonbury, Joshua Tree Festival and Good Vibrations sharing the stage with the likes of Moby, Beastie Boys, Jazzanova and Snoop Dogg.

Ursula has created 2 side project, the sexy nu disco house sounds of Quetin Quatro and the ambient New Age space music project called Pretty Pretty Pegasus! The 2 Quentin Quatro Eps feature remixes by Psychemagik, Sleazy McQueen, Cole Medina, Gemini Bros, Discofari and Virgin Magnetic Material.

This year marks the 20th anniversary since his debut recording. This calls for a celebration! Not a retrospective of familiar hits, but a fresh spin on the fundamentals; that's the spirit of Esoterique. Think "Ursula 1000 at his best," rather than The Best of Ursula 1000. Think a lifetime of globetrotting grooves distilled into 56 minutes of bliss. Or don't think about it at all. Just kick up your heels, expand your mind, and join the party. Featuring special guest stars Fred Schneider of The B-52s, Isabelle Antena, Loredana Grimaudo of Swingrowers, Qypthone, The Gentle People and remixes by Jazzanova and Fantastic Plastic Machine!
