What makes an artist to succeed is still a secret for most of all. What it is sure, is that the journey is long and hard, more even coming from an island; a beautiful place in the world, but far away from the big cities and the big opportunities. This is what makes Javier Carballo still more respectable.
He has been the reference for the best underground electronic music, back at the Canary Islands and Spain, but now he is becoming well known far away from his country too.
Javier Carballo (Overall Music / One Records / La Vie En Rose)
ecently regarded as one of Spain’s “best kept secrets,” Javier Carballo, internationally acclaimed DJ, producer, and label owner, grew up on an exotic Spanish island called Gran Canaria. From the warm sounds of inspiration of the vibrant wellspring of life surrounding him, music became a way of life to transmit emotions and communion through sound.
Thoroughly dedicated to this calling, Javier’s passion drains over everything he does, channeling his creative efforts to produce deeply emotional, strikingly state-of-the-art underground deep house and techno.
￼Since 2009, Carballo’s career has continued to evolve with his solo projects and remixes that received support by some of the biggest names in the industry like Richie Hawtin, Tania Vulcano, Raresh, Seth Troxler, Apollonia, Paco Osuna, to name a few. Not to mention getting picked up by some of the globes’ most prestigious imprints such as La Vie En Rose, One Records, Tabla, Electronique, Decay, Music for Freaks and Hector’s new label Vatos Locos to name a few.
In 2010, Carballo launched his own label, Overall Music with close mate Hanfry Martínez. In 2014 they decided to make it a vinyl only imprint for DJs, collectors and electronic music connoisseurs. Using Overall Music as the catalyst to share with the world their vision of the best modern house and techno. As a result, the label started catching attention from some of the industries’ biggest A-listers who wanted to be apart of their vision, the likes of Guti, Hector, John Dimas, DJ Jes and Tijn, Lopasky, Alci, Maya Jane Coles, Subb-an, Djebali, Adam Shelton, Subb-an, Jay Tripwire, Terrence Terry and many others.
As a master behind the decks, Javiers’ success comes as no surprise to anyone who has seen him live or listened to one of his mixes. With a combination of sophistication and accessibility, his sets are expressive journeys that create lasting emotional
experiences for the listener. Thus, he has been seen gracing the booths at some of the best clubs and festivals around the world like Fabric (London), Cocoon (Frankfurt), Special Case (St. Petersburg), Watergate (Berlin), Sankeys (Ibiza), Goa (Madrid), Club Q (Zurich), R pigalle (Paris), Strange People (New York), Social Lubricant (Miami), BPM (Mexico) with many more to come.
