Hailing from the city of Valencia, producer, remixer, DJ, label owner and event promoter Edu Imbernon is a truly global electronic music proposition.
Sprouting from city of “valour” – Valencia – the multifaceted artist: producer, remixer, DJ, label owner and event promoter Edu Imbernon is a truly global electronic music proposition.
Edu has carved out an emotive, melodic sound focusing on songcraft that is all his own: a unique blend of electronica, house and indie. This sound was spawned by his anthemic remix of The xx”s “Crystalised” – the process was responsible for his discovery of writing and producing with live instruments and vocals alongside electronics and synthesised sounds.
Following his formative years as a producer and DJ, in late 2012 “Fayer” was born, starting as a small non regular 70 person event in the upstairs room of a small club in Valencia. 5 years later Fayer is a somewhat different beast. The Fayer events have gone from strength to strength – the likes of Dixon, Ame, Maceo Plex, DJ Tennis, Solomun, Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, The Martinez Brothers, Stephan Bodzin and Tiga have featured at clubs, open airs and festivals alike, to thousands of party goers at a time. On the back of a Fayer showcase in the final year of Space Ibiza, 2017 will see a showcase at Barcelons’s biggest regular event series Brunch In The Park, and shows as far reaching as Cairo, Moscow and Beirut.
The label arm of Fayer focuses on bridging the gap between the song based worlds of indie and electronica and the more club focused sounds of house and techno music. Thus far the label has featured music from David August, Agoria, WhoMadeWho, Adriatique, Maya Jane Coles, Cubicolor, Robag Wruhme, Gardens of God and Jonas Rathsman.
After 8 releases, the achievements of the label reflect those of one many years its senior: four Beatport genre #1s, millions of streams, multiple positions on Spotify’s Viral charts, extensive BBC Radio 1 and support from Mixmag, NME, MySpace, Earmilk, DIY and Pigeons & Planes; as well as DJ support that reads like a who’s who of underground electronic music.
As a DJ, Edu’s truly global touring schedule continues to evolve. Each of the last 3 years have seen over 100 shows across 30 countries over 5 continents with stand out sets at the world’s finest festivals: Sonar, TomorrowLand, Coachella, Ultra, BPM Festival; its finest clubs; fabric, London; Watergate, Berlin; Warung Beach Club, Brazil and Womb, Tokyo; and at the original home of dance music: consecutive Space Ibiza residencies bookended by performances at the legendary opening and closing parties.
Looking ahead, is more evolution and development, a new sound for his own musical creations, fresh boundary pushing talent within his labels, and global events with his Fayer brand. Despite his long list of achievements thus far, this visionary Valencian is still somehow in his twenties.
