Community Spotlight: Abe Duque
Welcome back to another Community Spotlight at 343 Labs. This week, we sat down with techno veteran and long-term 343 instructor, Mr. Abe Duque!
Abe has been a part of the 343 family for nearly 10 years, having started back in the Dubspot days with many of the other current instructors we have.
With a wealth of knowledge about the techno scene and music production, Abe is a prime example of the high caliber of instructors we have in our community. Let’s see what he had to say about this.
What’s your name and artist name (if any)? Give us a bit of background on yourself. How long have you been producing, and how did you get into music?
My name is Carlos Abraham Duque Alcivar, and I produce under the name Abe Duque. I have also produced under other monikers such as Kirlian, the New York Trance King, and Super Secret Symphony. I got into music production after falling in love with synthesizers in the mid-80s.
