Esteban Adame and Santiago Salazar are Ican (short for Mexican).  Two chicano's from Los Angeles.  Esteban Adame started his musical career at age 15, Djing at local house parties in and around Los Angeles. He would soon be introduced to underground music. There he was turned on to the house and techno sounds that intrigued him at the time.  Soon he found himself producing his own beats and would eventually be inspired by the keyboard solos that he heard on several of his records and wanted to do the same. He began his formal training in music at the age of 19 and took a hiatus from DJ'ing and producing. At 21 he just focused on his instrument, the Piano. Since the age of 23 Esteban has played with and accompanied some of the top Latin, Jazz and Soul acts in Los Angeles and abroad.  Santiago Salazar started dj'ing in 1992. Being sparked by mix tapes his brother was bringing back from the Gay underground scene in Los Angeles. Santiago got his first break at a afterhours club called 'The Beverly Room' dj'ing from Midnight til' 5:00am where he credits the gay scene for making him the DJ he is today.  Since then, he has played around the world giving dance floors his signature style of mixing house and techno, the way he use to do it since day one. Santiago has released EP's on Underground Resistance, Aztech Sol, Los Hermanos and Tunnel 7.  In 2003 he remixed DJ Rolando's "Aguila" and 2004, he was resposible for the Los Hermanos remix of UR's "Return of the Dragon". In 2005, Santiago and Jeff Mills edited the Galaxy 2 Galaxy album "Hi Tech Jazz Compilation". Also in 2005, under his alias DJ S2, was featured on UR's Interstellar Fugitive 2: The Destruction of Order, where he had 4 original productions on the cd's and 1 production with long time friend/mentor Mad Mike Banks.  He is credited as doing all edits for the ISF2 album. In 2005 both Esteban and Santiago joined the UR's Galaxy 2 Galaxy and Los Hermanos live bands.  Esteban for his keyboard skills and Santiago for his DJ skills.  Both played along side veteran Detroit musicians Mike Banks and Gerald Mitchell. In late 2005 Esteban and Santiago decided to join forces and ICAN was born. Their idea was to bring electronic dance music back to the dance floor with a huge dose of Latin roots.  As Santiago put it one time “Esteban and I  have come full circle. Esteban went to school to learn music formally and I went to school in Detroit with the UR crew.”
