The exploration of the deeper side of Techno by Dosem, since busting onto the scene almost 10 years ago, has seen him clock up countless air miles, release a string of hit club tracks and earn accolades from many of his peers, who deem him to be one of the most influential underground Spanish DJs in the scene today. The demand for Dosem’s infusion of deep textured sounds, relentless precision drums and driving rhythms which make up his club cuts that are making dance floors shake the world over shows no sign of slowing.
First emerging in 2008 with a number of early releases, it was his eloquently carved club hit ‘Silent Drop’ that was released on Technasia’s label SINO in 2009 which first cemented his name into the consciousness of fans of deep and soulful club music. But it was the release of the cosmic classic ‘Beach Kisses’ in 2009 via Joris Voorn’s influential Green label that confirmed his position as one of the scenes leading new artists. The immediate years following saw him drop tracks and remixes on some of the biggest labels around, making Dosem one of the key influences within the bubbling melodic techno scene. Labels such as Christian Smiths Tronic, Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat, Slam’s Soma Records and John Digweeds seminal Bedrock all feature in Dosems swollen back catalogue. Yet it was the 2013’ album ‘Origin,’ the follow up to ‘Parallel,’ that heralded the next chapter of his esteemed production career. ‘Origin,’ saw Dosem re-explore his roots, diving further into the sounds and ideas which inspired him, the result saw tougher, club driven tracks interspersed with soulful melodies and interstellar funk that became a firm fan favourite.
Most recent releases, from his remix of Hot Since 82’s ‘Planes & Trains’ which reached No.1 in Beatports Techno charts to working his deep house magic on Umek & Mike Vale’s ‘All I Want’- that has kept dancefloors rolling deep into 2015 and upon its release taking the #1 spot on Beatport’s deep house chart – make it apparent that the demand for his productions shows no sign of slowing and thankfully for his fans, neither does the rate at which he produces such seismic beats.
Earning a coveted spot as one of Beatport’s Top 5 techno artists of 2014, Dosem’s global acclaim a as a producer and highly prized re-mixer continues to spread. But his skills as a DJ are equally heralded and a relentless touring scheduled since appearing on the international circuit has won him not only the adoration of his fans but also the respect of his peers within the scene itself. This summer saw his most prolific Ibiza schedule to date taking apart Privilege’s Vista Club, Blue Marlin and the Sura party at Booom, as well as Ushuaïa, Space and Pacha on previous visits to the island, Dosem’s versatility between festival annihilator and beach party connoisseur, magnifies his appeal and his dexterity when crowd reading and critically knowing when to play the right record at the right time have left audience in raptures.
Career defining sets at Berghain (Berlin,) Womb (Toyko,) Gashouder (Amsterdam,) Nitsa Apolo (Barcelona,) Rex Club (Paris,) Space Ibiza (New York,) and Ministry of Sound (London) as well as festival performances at Sónar, Ultra Music Festival, Loveland, Awakenings, BPM Festival and Monegros as well as many more have put Dosem in the bracket of DJ that many wish they could reach. So given his history, its no surprise that he has also gained wide support across the electronic spectrum and with fans and followers of the Catalonian’s unique perspective of electronic music, 2015 is set to be a big year.
