Raised in Chicago by a single immigrant mother who left their home country for a chance to give their child more opportunities. Natalie Murillo fell in love with music at the age of 3. Grew up involved in their school orchestra and marching band as an adolescent. Went on to study music production and engineering at Columbia College, but that was short lived due to the 2008 recession and their mother’s immigration status did not allow her to take out a student loan. She decided to continue their artistic practice independently as “La Spacer,” and started collaborating with performance artists, visual artists, and multi-disciplinary graduates mainly from SAIC. La Spacer was determined to build her own dream production studio. Determined, bit by bit she built her studio using drum machines, synthesizers, and a vocal booth, and began composing, producing, and performing their work. In 2015, she co-founded “TRQPITECA,” a Chicago-based artist duo and production company creating spaces and opportunities for local and international artists who identify as queer (LGBTQIA+), ALAANA, and/or allies to experiment and thrive. In 2017, “TRQPITECA” received a grant from the Propeller Fund to create the International Chicago Underground Queer Transcendence Symposium, also known as “ICUQTS.” ICUQTS was a two day art and music festival created with no corporate sponsors. In 2019 “TRQPITECA” received funding from the Chicago Park District’s Night Out In the Parks program to create a Queer pride festival during Chicago’s pride weekend that was free and all ages. As La Spacer has achieved her goals, their artistry has also evolved and expanded to creating space for other marginalized artist. Her next challenge is to create a record label as another format to create, release, and share her art to the world and allow other queer (LGBTQIA+) artist to have increased visibility.
Pronouns: She,They, Spacer
Natalie Murillo (aka La Spacer) has focused on experiencing the evolution of Chicago’s house music and Detroit’s techno, and the underground global dance craze phenomenon influenced by these two sister cities in different parts of the world since the late 80s. Based on La Spacers’ posteriori knowledge she produces other-worldly hypnotic rhythms with house & techno music as their foundation. Natalie is a part of a generation of artists that will continue to push barriers and create space for artists that support and influence the global underground dance movement.
