Barcelona, Province of Barcelona, Spain Techno House DJ Tools Electronica / Downtempo +3

Born in Badalona, 12 km far from barcelona. Trying to mix minimalistic and techno rythms for pure pleasure. Started mixing with hiphop tapes at 8. Later I discovered hardcore, the only electronic music that sound on my country. At 12 started with D&B and hardtek and finally, at 14 found my style, call it Techno, Minimal, deephouse... Digital lover, owning lots of controllers and mapping them for getting better performances. Now producing weekly with Alex Brinken aka Mr. Cia. Dj/Organitzator of minimanimal parties. Always looking at the most minimal part of life and trying to get different sounds of the established pattern. Finalist of the first edition of online music festival "Noiseofffestival".
Inspired by parents of techno like Jeff Mills, Sven Vath, Carl Cox, and other minimal artist like Richie Hawtin, Davide Squillace, Gui Boratto, Extrawelt, Pan Pot... Always improving my mixing skills and sometimes doing some tutorials about how to map a controller or so.
Nowadays mixing with a RMX controller and using traktor on a macbook. Some people would say thats not mixing, thats just playing music like an ipod. I would tell them, when you can modify a controller for using 4 decks instead of 2 without any help or tutorials when you are just 14 years old, thats more than just play a song after another. It's love for music.
