Barcelona producer Coyu, aka Ivan Ramos Salinas, is one of Spain’s most in-demand exports.
Celebrated as a skilled DJ and producer, whose remix touch has been trusted on classics by the likes of Fatboy Slim and X-Press II, in recent years he’s also made a mark with his Suara label. Boasting a roster that includes fellow Spaniard Edu Imbernon alongside Technasia, Tube & Berger, Affkt, Jay Lumen, Gary Beck and Carlo Lio, it’s rolling, techy sound has helped define modern house and techno.
Out this week is Coyu’s remix of ‘Clunk’ by Ramiro Lopez, another Suara label mate, this time releasing on Waveform. And the duo have extended their studio respect even further, with a joint ‘That’s Not Happening’ EP (which we’re assured is happening) out on Bedrock on the 12th of May.
Even more exciting though is the news that Coyu has been teaming up with Moby for an as yet undisclosed project. Quite what they’re cooking up remains to be seen, but whatever it is we’ve sure it will be flavoured by Coyu’s Catalan passion…
