I’m doing all kind of electronics from ambient through IDM to deep and techy house and techno.
Aquavit’s first album ’Telepatia’ wa sreleased in 2008. The same year, me and Billie Ray Martin formed The Opiates, the 12" EP 'Anatomy of a plastic girl' was released,, which was considered by Dj Hell as "die bombe", Hell later featured the track 'Candy Coated Crime' on his compilation Gigolo Records 11. We also recorded an album which will be released in 2010.
My latest releases on Aquavit Records, a techy house EP with Baldo (Neovinyl Recordings) called 'The 12 Hour EP'. My second solo EP ’Love & Vinyls’ with remixes by Baldo and Shaka (Corner Records, Morris Audio). I also have a track out on the album "The family grows LP" on Overflow Recordings.
I’ve been Djing and playing live on different arrangements in Spain the last years and also being resident Dj in clubs.
