Push Button Objects

Having released albums as Guineo and Push Button Objects, in addition to serving as one-half of Ko-Wreck Technique, Edgar Farinas has become a master of digital disguises. Mastering a cross-pollination of hip-hop, Detroit Techno and Miami Bass, Edgar is as adept at making the party jump off with his beats as he is with providing music to make you nostalgic for othertimes. Not an easy feat for any musician, but he makes it seem effortless.

Beginning his recording career in 1997 with an EP released on Schematic, Farinas would release most of his recordings from that point on with Chocolate Industries. 1998’s “Unauthorized” featured a remix from Gescom, the more danceable side of Autechre; 1999’s “Half Dozen” led to “Dirty Dozen,” sparking a bright creative period.

Edgar would appear later on that year as one-half of the duo Ko-Wreck Technique, releasing the “Ko-Wrecktion” EP to critical
 

acclaim. “360 Degrees,” featuring Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Mr. Lif and DJ Craze, would become a college radio hit, followed closely by remixed versions that fared equally as well. “Tosstones,” recorded under the name Guineo, would become a sought-after release, made rare due to the fact that all copies subsequently sold out.

Next came “Ghetto Blaster,” a crazy mix of bangers and chill beats. Featuring Dose One, Aesop Rock and Vast Aire among others, this album simultaneously brought the ruckus and served as peace mediator.
