Entresol is Eduardo "Edi" Rivadeneira, a one-man electronic tinkerer and synth enthusiast
from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. With a collection of keyboards, drum machines, pedals and
samplers, Entresol has created a unique sound that blends classic disco and electro beats
with contemporary pop melodies.
At the age of thirteen, Edi started his music career in his birth city of Guayaquil Ecuador by
playing bass in various punk bands. A few years after immigrating to the US in 2002, he
pursued his interest in music by studying jazz composition at Broward College where he
simultaneously got aquainted with the Miami alternative club scene. Infamous parties such as
Revolver and Poplife turned his attention to indie rock and electronic dance music. Teaming
up with his good friend Daniel Obregon, they birthed a dance-rock band called New Greandes
which made its way around the Broward venue circuit.
Entresol was conceived in 2008 with fellow musician and friend Camilo Velez as a more guitar
driven ambient folk duo. As their sound evolved, Edi's growing love for electronic beats and
retro synths came into play. In 2010, Velez parted ways with Entresol leaving Edi to push the
project in a new direction as a solo act.
Entresol's unique style is quickly spreading beyond his home of South Florida. He's performed
at major Miami venues such as Grand Central, The Awarehouse, and The Electric Pickle and
has opened for national acts such as Phantogram, Anoraak, Javelin, Arthur Baker, Palmbomen,
Jessica 6, Woolfie, Eli Escobar, Lifelike, and Still Going. His remix of Caribouâ€™s single
Sun placed in the top 10 for the band's official remix contest, and Edi's just getting started.
With a full length album due out in 2011 along with a remix EP for the single Formal Matter,
itâ€™s only a matter of time before Entresol hits the national stage.
