«This is the best year of my career»
Born in Madridejos, he has been dedicated to music for more than 20 years. At the young age of 16 he made his first dj performance in the discos of his neighborhood.
Years later, in Toledo, he started a promising career as a DJ thanks to the ‘Family Club’ room where he learned a lot, in addition to producing his own songs.
For the last 6 years he has been dedicated exclusively to the world of music as a way of life. It is customary to see him in the booths alongside renowned artists from the international scene and has played in well-knownrooms.
At this point in your career, do you consider yourself more dj than producer, or vice versa?
I consider myself both, because I think of music 24 hours a day. I need to make music but I do not conceive it if it is not being played in a room and making people happy.
How did you receive your nomination? Was it expected?
With great joy because it is very good that they recognize my work and I am very grateful that they value everything I am doing.
Do you have any inspiration in your day to day life?
I listen to music from many artists, but inspiration can come from anywhere, so I always try to be prepared. You can come across a movie, through a piece of jazz or soul, for example.
Thanks to what you think you’ve received a nomination as a revelation of the year?
I think it’s because of how my career has evolved.
For the first time I published this year on Drumcode Records, the most powerful label of techno in the world. Being able to be part of that showcase is very important for me, so I think I’m in the most important year of my career. In addition I have more and more international performances.
What relationship has it maintained and currently has Ibiza?
First I came to the island as a clubber, at first I only knew the clubs. Then, once I started playing in the salons, I was also interested in knowing the natural part of Ibiza, her coves, her food. Whenever I come I try to enjoy the island.
Would you like to share a stage with a special dj in any nightclub in particular?
I am fortunate to be sharing with many of the dj that I listened to when I started, for me it is a luxury.
But there is a moment that I remember especially because I played in Space just before its closing. I feel very happy because I have played in the best clubs on the island, I can not complain.
What is the best and the worst that brings you personally music?
The best is happiness, it is the best job in the world. I am doing something with what I have dreamed for a very long time in my life and I can say that I have been living completely for 6 years. To my friends I usually say that for me there are no Mondays because I feel very happy to be working in everything I do. When you do what you like you feel fantastic and for me it’s like a gift.
And the worst, because the hours you fly and travel to any part of the world, sometimes I have little time to rest. But I have to say that it is so much good that brings me the music that totally compensates.
