To have achieved what Danny Avila has at the age of 22 is phenomenal enough.
To have done it with such integrity and passion make it even more special. With a feisty production sound and a unique DJ style, he is a breath of fresh air in a world where many artists are happy to stick to the same formula.
The last four years have seen Danny Avila rise from bedroom producer to international star. After being picked up by the likes of Tiesto and Calvin Harris, the 22-year-old has gone from strength to strength, landing residencies in Las Vegas and Ibiza, touring across Asia, North America and Europe and counting three compilations to his name including ‘Ministry of Sound Presents: Danny Avila Live’ and ‘Ibiza Calling’.
Recently, the young DJ/Producer combined skills with the NERVO sisters for their hotly anticipated new collaboration – Loco.
Quickly snapped up by Dutch powerhouse Spinnin’ Records, Loco gives the classic electronic dancefloor sound a distinctly Spanish – or ‘Avila’ – twist. With NERVO’s instantly recognizable vocals alongside a dark, catchy melody and tight, complex drums, the trios new single exemplifies the artists’ talent, energy and vision.
Check out our interview with Danny where he discusses Loco, reflects on Ibiza and summer highlights this year, and also talks about his favourite food dishes, and four legged creature!
