The Tech House Spaniard Dennis Cruz DJ

The Tech House Spaniard Dennis Cruz DJ began his career at the age of 17, like many of his countrymen, while also studying to be a sound engineer. By his early 20’s, he had experience in the studio producing tracks for hip-hop artists and rock bands.

He honed his musical style over the years by molding his many diverse influences. He channeled his style, influences, and experiences into his Iberican Sound. He takes his fans on a musical journey in each of his DJ sets that brings emotions to life on dance floors across Europe to Russia, the Mediterranean, the Americas, and Australia.

In time, he became a pillar of the tech house world, setting trends and creating sounds. He earned accolades from Beatport, Resident Advisor, and Vicious Music Awards in 2015 and 2016. 2017 looks to be another exciting year for him and his fans.

He has tracks with some of the hottest labels in the scene, including but not limited to,

  • Stereo Productions
  • Snatch!
  • Moan
  • Deeperfect
  • Suruba X
  • Solid Grooves
  • Glasgow Underground
  • Suara
  • Lemon-Aid

One of our favorites is the tech house track, ‘Mad,’ out on Stereo Productions. A catchy vox intertwine in and in between the percussion on this monster track can be quickly deemed as pristine and bright as the Blue Lake of South Australia. The new offering from the musical mind of the incredibly diverse Dennis Cruz has a driving force behind the drum patterns that can steer a locomotive off its rails. The layers of white noise embedding this piece have enough tension to make the bravest of late night alumni surrender.

Asturian Tech House DJ Producer David Herrero

Asturian Tech House DJ Producer David Herrero

Asturian tech house DJ Producer David Herrero was born in Asturias, an autonomous principality in the northwest region of Spain. Asturias is Spain’s best-kept secret known for its Swiss-like mountains, rugged coasts, fishing towns, beaches, and religious history. Like the diversity of its terrain, David Herrero finds his Stereo Groove by adroitly combining various sounds from many sources into his tonal palette. Each of his tracks inspired by a moment in his life makes his music heartfelt and personal.

I live for music. When I go into the studio with the same excitement as the very first day . . .

“Superstar of Hearts” is an apt description of the man who is wholeheartedly dedicated to bringing joy to the people who listen to and appreciate his music.

David is usually at the forefront of electronic music. From funky house to organic tribal deep house, as David goes, so does the scene.

One of our favorite tracks, ‘Alanka’ out on Stereo Productions, is a tech house masterpiece. The four to the floor mid bass uniformly accented in unison with its vox grips hold of you to its first breakdown. After the breakdown, David’s organic house sound comes into focus with a twist of tribal and tech. Your cup of Iberican flavor floweth over to the last beat.

After listening below, please share your thoughts with us and include anyone who may enjoy being part of the conversation.
