‘The Big Cat’, Catalan DJ/producer better known internationally as COYU is the priest of theSuara house and techno temple which is without a doubt one of the most prominent imprints in the worldwide electronic music scene, reached #1 on bothBeatport and Resident Advisor.
Following a flurry of great remixes for the likes ofFatboy Slim (Skint), Stephan Bodzin (Herzblut), Joseph Capriati (Drumcode), Pete Tong & John Monkman (Suara), MOBY & Skylar Grey (Little Idiot), Charlotte de Witte (Turbo) just to name a few, he is steadily signing no less groovy original tracks such as “Clap Your Hands” (Drumcode), “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 asGet Physical, Bedrock, Cocoon, 100% Pure, Systematic, etc.
