Sainte Vie (Pablo Piña, born in Mexico City in 1994) is an electronic music producer, sound engineer, and label owner based in Miami. His style is primarily characterized as melodic techno but blends many genres of electronic and world music to create an eclectic, energetic, and deeply emotional sound. As a teenager growing up in Mexico City, Pablo became enamored with the city’s vibrant rock and alt-rock scene and, at the age of thirteen, founded a rock band called Polar. Pablo disbanded Polar after moving to France to finish high school where he first fell in love with electronic music and its endless possibilities. After France, he moved to New York City to pursue a degree in sound design and sound engineering. Upon graduating, Pablo launched his career as Sainte Vie releasing his first original productions and remixes.
Based out of Brooklyn, he quickly gained notoriety in the international electronic music scene by releasing tracks through acclaimed labels such as Kompakt, Cercle, Stil vor Talent, Ouïe, All Points and his own label, Akumandra.
