With a career spanning 25 years, Paco Osuna is one of the most renowned artists in the electronic music industry. His creativity, courage and relentless search for new forms of expression are some of his principal and consistent virtues when it comes to making music. When performing, he is dynamic, lively, intelligent and sophisticated, with a deep awareness for sound aesthetics. Every session is important to Paco and he sets out to invent and renew every time he steps onto the stage.
In the studio, Paco Osuna has moulded his own musical signature, coating the purest techno sounds with his characteristic features: depth, darkness and imagination, always accentuated by his creativity and innovation. Proof of that are his releases on labels such as Plus8, Minus, Mood, Items & Things, Spectral, Hommage, and for his own platform Mindshake. In addition, he has remixed representative artists like Plastikman, Nicole Moudaber, Matador, Adam Beyer, Seth Troxler and Monkey Safari.
In 2006 he launched Mindshake, conceived as a platform for the creation and distribution of electronic music. Over the past few years, Mindshake has become one of the most important techno labels in the US and Europe, hosting productions of artists like Cuartero, Carlo Lio, Eats Everything, Popof, Andres Campo, Fer BR, Nick Curly and Paul Ritch. In addition, Mindshake presents events around the world. The Mindshake showcases are both an extension of the musical and artistic vision of Paco and a family celebration, where the main goal is to create an intimate and unforgettable experience. Mindshake also hosts full stages at festivals such as BPM Portugal, ADE Dockyard, WAN Festival and Medusa Festival, among others.
From 2015, Paco Osuna has been part of Music On, joining Marco Carola in residencies in Ibiza, Miami and NY, as well as the emblematic parties during BPM Mexico. In 2016 he was selected to be ambassador of PLAYdifferently MODEL1, a distinction also received by Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Dubfire, Matador, Nicole Moudaber and, of course, Richie Hawtin. In 2018, Paco became a Burn Residency ambassador. In 2019, elrow chose Paco as a flagship artist for their new project Kaos Garden.

Throughout his career Paco has performed at clubs, parties and festivals of great prestige. The list of events in which he has played is endless, and is one where quality is more important than quantity. From Fabric and Electric Brixton London to WOMB Tokyo, passing through Space NYC, Space Miami and Verboten NY in the US, Watergate Berlin and renowned clubs such as Amnesia, Pacha, Hï, Ushuaïa, DC10, Privilege and Destino in his beloved Ibiza.
