A lot of emphasis is placed on the fact that you are young and successful, with ‘El baile alemán’ being named Best track of the year by Beatport. What are a few of the things that have helped you soar so quickly?
Yes that track helped me to make myself heard. I think there are some things that have helped me this past years. The remix of THE XX- Crystalised was also key for my career, as it came out in the right moment, when the band explode world wide and on a great label such as Young Turks. There have been other friends like Coyou, Uner , Los Suruba that are also taking off and we have also helped each other.
Releasing in other important labels such as Get Physical,Noir, Skint, Stil vor Talent to mention some, has also helped me a lot. Hard work from me and the people helping me with my career.
Eklektisch is my own label as you said and I just release very special and intimate tracks. Young Turks for example has released a remix of The XX, where the track contains a lot of the original one.
How popular is Nu-Disco in Spain and why is it you enjoy adding this flavour to your music?
I think its a world wide trend but when I produce I don´t think about any concrete markets, I just do what I feel. I think making the tracks a bit more poppy in a way makes them richer, it permits me to include vocals, melodies but also the bass. It has to be also dancefloor oriented. My sets are usually 2-3h long so there is time enough to play different sounds, it should be like an amazing trip!
You have pretty much toured around the globe, what has been your favourite destination so far and why?
Well the greatest thing is that the world is amazing! there are many places that are special, each of them for its own reasons. South Africa is probably one of the most beautiful countries ive ever been to. My last set at Truth was epic. Another great place is Peru, the nature, the food , the people… and of course IBIZA for being the capital of dance music and such a beautiful island!
Thanks for that Edu! What can the SA audience expect from your set at Trinity and TRUTH?
Everything! The last gig there was so special that I can’t wait for this saturday. On top, I’ll have many of my best friends from spain with me and also some good SA friends from last time I played there , which will make it even more special !
I’ll play all my last productions, which hasn’t been released yet and will be out soon on labels like Get Phsyical. So all new stuff and good energy!
Do you have any pre-DJ rituals to calm your nerves?
Just setting everything up and making sure my ipad is correctly linked with my mac. that can be a pain in the ass!
Your best and favourite personal remix work?
