Madrid-born Wally Lopez first began his musical career at the age of 13 as a radio DJ and presenter, broadcasting on Top Radio and other renowned Spanish stations Loca FM, Flaix FM and Maxima FM. A background on the airwaves has stood him in good stead for the currents of dancefloor adoration he achieves.

One could argue that Wally has been one of the most prolific Spanish DJs on the scene but without an abrasive 'in-your-face' stratagem.
He's been resident at Pacha Ibiza for the past three years and in that time has also notched up a list of fine tunes and many quality remixes for a diverse selection of artists including Tiësto, Lighthouse Family, Santana, Bob Sinclar and Marco V.
"This year I've been doing remixes for Paolo Mojo, Pete Tong and Claude Von Stroke," Wally tells DJmag. "Also, I've been working on some tracks for my labels Thefactoria and FatXL."

Wally is on a steady trajectory, DJing across the world and gaining respect from some of the most prestigious DJs, such as Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo and Pete Tong.
As far as the future goes, Wally grins: "I'm producing my new album and trying to place Factomania.com outside Spain too."
