We kick August off by celebrating two formidable pieces of news regarding Suara. The first one is that Coyu will release in the middle of the month “1 + 1“, the first single to be extracted from his long awaited debut album. The original cut has just been premiered by Mixmag and you can read it below.
It will be officially published this August 14th in an EP where in addition Thomas Gandey, Gerd Janson, Truncate and Cosmin TRG will be participating. The other is nothing more and nothing less than the entry of the label in the “Top 50 Labels of the Decade: 2007-2017”, a list made public earlier this week also in Mixmag, in fact, the readers of the emblematic dance magazine are those who voted.
Let’s focus on what’s to come with the first two dates of this month at the Suara Nights at Privilege, Ibiza. In them we will enjoy artists such as Audiojack, Doctor Dru, Ramiro López, Bastian Bux and the host Coyu, who will also celebrate with all of us his birthday on 13/08.
This next Sunday the 6th we will have the privilege (never better said) of counting on the presence and experience of the last ones in remixing Kerri Chandler: that is, the pair Audiojack. They have just done it with “Six Pianos“, a powerful test they continue on the podium of artists who know how to handle the house of now with oldschool house. The Brits – now based in Ibiza – have been building a very solid reputation since 2006. Since then they have released on vital electronic music labels such as Hot Creations, 20:20 Vision, Crosstown Rebels … and of course Suara. We have to give them a reception they deserve
From his part, a good dose of groove, handclap, dark melodies and German techno is what awaits us with Doctor Dru. He, along with Oliver Huntemann, two of the most emblematic and productive artists of the city of Hamburg. A beat maestro – he started out as a drummer – he also co-directs Jeudi Records, whose curious motto is “Underground is our background”. Among his most notable achievements is producing Bootsy Collins, remixing Romanthony or Claptone, as well as great releases for Exploited, Baalsaal, Jackmode and of course, Suara.
A very interesting combat that we will encounter Coyu along with two of his most faithful squires: : Ramiro Lopez & Bastian Bux. Together they will lead an unforgettable night, coinciding with Coyu’s birthday! This very special night will not stop exchanging blows in the booth. To mix the best of his record boxes. A unique occasion to enjoy a B2B ‘squared’. Do not forget that Ramiro Lopez is nominated in the DJ Awards – Electronic Music Awards / Ibiza 2017 in the category ‘Breakthrough’. He continues to smash it with his “Pretending“for Drumcode, and is unstoppable with his own label Odd, where the remixes of his acclaimed “We Are Odd” (next to Arjun Vagale) are now starting to come out.
Bastian Bux, with whom Coyu shared not long ago a tour of the USA and also one of the best selling releases this summer on Suara: “Serendib“. As a final note, we remember that the talented producer and Catalan DJ performed warm-up for Jean-Michel Jarre in one of his last concerts in Spain.
