Our end of summer/bank holiday weekend party brings non other than Edu Imbernon to Manchester. Joined by residents H2 (Form, weplayminimal) & 5eighty6.
Edu Imbernon is without doubt one of the most promising talented artists in electronic music right now.
At just 21 years of age the native Valenciano from Spain has torn up dancefloors all over the planet with his hit "El Baile Alemán" (produced alongside fellow partner Coyu) released under German label Liebe*Detail and heavily supported by artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Marco Carola, Sebastien Leger, Agoria and many more. He also has the claim to rights of being one of the youngest artists ever to reach number one in the TOP 100 Beatport. At the same time his ‘Mayenco’ EP release was the second largest vinyl seller on decks.de. "El Baile Alemán" was ultimately the most sold track in 2009, was featured in Resident Advisor's Top 100 most charted tracks of 2009 and was eventually awarded the ‘Best Underground Track’ of 2009 by Beatport alongside Edu being named ‘Rising Star’ for 2010 in the company of Nick Curly, Ben Klock, Julian Chaptal, Stimming and a few select others. His current productions just keep on flying higher and higher with a multitude of critical acclaim.
After a stellar 2009, in which he featured regularly in countless DJ charts and vinyl stores ‘Top Sellers’ list with his productions he also became the main resident for the world renowned Barraca Club (Valencia, Spain) whilst at the same time playing the best clubs around Europe. Edu is currently enjoying an even bigger 2010. Already winner of ‘Best Producer’ and ‘Best Track’ from the influential Spanish national dance music awards Edu has taken this year by storm, starting off early with tours of the USA, Brazil, South America, Asia, a residency for Space Ibiza at Kehakuma and various dates at Privilege Ibiza during the summer.
Edu is the owner of Eklektisch, his own record label which reached with its second release “Tarantula” the number one in the TOP 100 Beatport and stayed there for six whole weeks whilst currently being the most sold track in 2010. Probably 2010 summer track. As an artist himself he has released on labels Get Physical, Diynamic, Liebe*Detail, Trapez, Noir Music, Bla Bla, Barraca Music, Cr2 and Great Stuff. Edu has also recently remixed The XX track “Crystalised”, due for release in late 2010 XL recordings. With production work to come for more high profile labels, Edu Imbernon is destined to make himself a household name and star of electronic music.
