Fave tune of 2018: “Danny Avila & The Vamps feat. Machine Gun Kelly’s ‘Too Good To Be True’.”
Breakthrough DJ/producer of 2018: “Timmy Trumpet.”
‘Dreams’ have been coming true for young Spaniard Danny Avila long before he released a track with that name this year. A perfect encapsulation of his pop-primed big room sound put out with the backing of the mighty Sony, his next release comes in November with the follow-up to that already in the finishing stages too. The brash ‘Brah’ for Spinnin’ Records was another 2018 slice of Avila in main room mood, but he’s shown his deeper side this year too, a mix for Dancing Astronauts showcasing a set of ‘poolside sounds’, albeit what sounds like a pool in Miami.
Starting the year with an extensive tour of China, before taking in other parts of Asia, he spent the following months racking up air miles. From Chicago to Shibuya, it’s been another non-stop ride of high-profile shows, including a summer of festivals taking in Tomorrowland, Ibiza Sun Fest and Untold Festival. As for the future, with collaborations happening with Timmy Trumpet, Deorro and many more, expect news very soon.
