COYU (DJ) | SUARA
‘The Big Cat’, Catalan DJ/producer better known internationally as COYU is the priest of the Suara house and techno temple which is without a doubt one of the most prominent imprints in the worldwide electronic music scene, reached #1 on both Beatport and Resident Advisor.
Following a flurry of great remixes for the likes of Fatboy Slim (Skint), Stephan Bodzin (Herzblut), Joseph Capriati (Drumcode), Pete Tong & John Monkman (Suara), MOBY & Skylar Grey (Little Idiot), Charlotte de Witte just to name a few, he is steadily signing no less groovy original tracks such as “The Cat” (Hot Creations), “Apparition” (Noir), “Profound Pleasure” (Defected) or the already classics “Balls”, “Cygnus” (release #200 on the label!) and “Y.E.A.H.”, both released on his beloved Suara. From his very great ‘hit’ “El Baile Alemán” (Liebe Detail, 2009) Coyu has released also on many other labels such as Get Physical, Bedrock, Cocoon, 100% Pure, Systematic, etc.
The worldwide clubbing music scene has surrendered to Coyu’s performances. He has attracted fans from every corner of the globe, playing at venues and festivals such as BPM Festival (Mexico), Sónar, ADE 2014 / 2015 (Amsterdam-NL), Winter Music Conference (Miami-USA), Piknic Electronik, Supersonic (India), Ultra Music Festival, Boiler Room / Stay True Spain (Barcelona), MixMag / The Lab (UK), Ministry Of Sound, ETC. And of course, Ibiza and Barcelona! After a remarked residency in Pacha (‘Insane’ on Fridays) alongside artists such as John Digweed, Mark Farina, Steve Lawler, Derrick Carter and Fritz Kalkbrenner… during the last two years Coyu and his ‘restless kitties team’ have presented a successful Suara weekly residency at Booom (2014) and Sankeys (2015). In his hometown (Barcelona) he frequently held as well very successful label nights, both with Suara & Feline (his brand new and more underground techno label), currently at Under club and Apolo-Nitsa respectively.
