COMPLEX AS IT IS FASCINATING

Yoikol is always trying to touch the audience and to get their groove on. He goes further than the famous 16 steps and bets heavily on a concept that is as complex as it is fascinating. However, when listening to his music it seems that he is playing it safe; when this techno lover plays music one soon realizes that techno is his lifestyle. We are before a guy that cannot live without his music. Techno is his disease and playing the beats is a necessary therapy for him. From 2000 he has devoted himself in the art of Djing and, as a producer he has come up with two albums; “Puzzle” (published in 2010) got a great reception from the audience and the support of national and international artists. On the 0ther hand, ‘Form & Void’ (808 Recordings, 2015) is about to see the light.

This Spanish Dj is the owner of a sound that is difficult to label and gets away from stereotypes and Classics. His music travels from Detroit and Chicago and lands in a futuristic place where the acid and the industrial are present; he is analogical vs digital and physical vs mental. Yoikol is a lover of the Roland sound (TR-909 and TR-808) and Pads and Kicks are the basis of his fantastical techno.

His label, 808 Recordings, bets on the production, publication and distribution of techno and his releases constantly reach top places in the charts of the most important music shops. In addition, his weekly radio show “808 Nights” evokes the very special and electronic universe that surrounds the daily life of the artist.

Definitely, 2015 has been really important for Yoikol. Besides his new album ‘Form & Void’, he has remixed the French group dOP for the renowned label Circus Company. In addition, he has created his second EP for FLASH, and one of his tracks has been selected for one of the MixMag´s compilations mixed by Sam Paganini.
