Biography

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side!"Hunter S. Thompson

At school they said my obsession for music may have a detrimental effect on my future. Well you can’t always believe what people say.

My DJ style is Balearic which is like trying to define the undefinable, confused? Many djs are defined by playing a particular genre, Balearic music is kaleidoscope of genres .Balearic djs play all styles. I have been playing from 1987 the early rave scene, beaches, clubs and festivals, all corners of the globe. 

Longest DJ residency and home is Sa Trinxa chiringuito, Ibiza 1994 - 2011. Back in the day I had my own sound system on the beach, I played all day, every day.
