Edu Imbernon is a unique force in driving melodic, emotive and energetic electronic music, through his productions, DJ sets, his Fayer and Eklektisch labels and his Fayer event series.
Sprouting from city of "valour" - Valencia - the multifaceted artist: producer, remixer, DJ, label owner and event promoter Edu Imbernon is a truly global electronic music proposition.
Edu has carved out an emotive, melodic sound focusing on songcraft that is all his own: a unique blend of electronica, house and indie. This sound was spawned by his anthemic remix of The xx"s “Crystalised” - the process was responsible for his discovery of writing and producing with live instruments and vocals alongside electronics and synthesised sounds. His now trademark sound can be heard on his remixes of Maya Jane Coles' “ You”, Hot Natured's "Emerald City", Metronomy's "I'm Aquarius" and WhoMadeWho's "Right Track”. This course was also followed via his original productions, “Punset”, “Imberlove” and “Fade It All Out”; as well as “Fayer”, voted Best Track at 2014’s Vicious Music Awards, with Edu picking up “Best Artist” at the Vicious awards the following year. More recently, the sound has evolved through his tracks “Fixing Fires” and “Bitter Fate”, and his most recent, a collaboration with Duologue, “Underworld”, the release picking up support from a wide selection of tastemakers.
It was during the years 2008 and 2009 that Edu exploded onto the international electronic music landscape. On course to study Economics at the University of Valencia, a last minute change of heart to pursue his dreams as an artist sent him from the sunny climes of Valencia to the epicentre of underground electronic music, Berlin.
Following his formative years as a producer and DJ, in late 2012 "Fayer" was born, starting as a small non regular 70 person event in the upstairs room of a small club in Valencia. 5 years later Fayer is a somewhat different beast. The Fayer events have gone from strength to strength - the likes of Dixon, Ame, Maceo Plex, DJ Tennis, Solomun, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Stephan Bodzin and Tiga have featured at clubs, open airs and festivals alike, to thousands of party goers at a time. On the back of a Fayer showcase in the final year of Space Ibiza, 2017 will see a showcase at Barcelons’s biggest regular event series Brunch In The Park, and shows as far reaching as Cairo, Moscow and Beirut.
The label arm of Fayer focuses on bridging the gap between the song based worlds of indie and electronica and the more club focused sounds of house and techno music. Thus far the label has featured music from David August, Agoria, WhoMadeWho, Adriatique, Maya Jane Coles, Cubicolor, Robag Wruhme, Gardens of God and Jonas Rathsman.
After 8 releases, the achievements of the label reflect those of one many years its senior: four Beatport genre #1s, millions of streams, multiple positions on Spotify’s Viral charts, extensive BBC Radio 1 and support from Mixmag, NME, MySpace, Earmilk, DIY and Pigeons & Planes; as well as DJ support that reads like a who’s who of underground electronic music.
As a DJ, Edu's truly global touring schedule continues to evolve. Each of the last 3 years have seen over 100 shows across 30 countries over 5 continents with stand out sets at the world’s finest festivals: Sonar, TomorrowLand, Coachella, Ultra, BPM Festival; its finest clubs; fabric, London; Watergate, Berlin; Warung Beach Club, Brazil and Womb, Tokyo; and at the original home of dance music: consecutive Space Ibiza residencies bookended by performances at the legendary opening and closing parties.
Looking ahead, is more evolution and development, a new sound for his own musical creations, fresh boundary pushing talent within his labels, and global events with his Fayer brand. Despite his long list of achievements thus far, this visionary Valencian is still somehow in his twenties.
