COYUSTYLE: Native country:
Coyu “The Big Cat” is one of the most referenced and respected personalities on the techno scene. Ever since he founded his cat empire in 2008, Suara,he’s been known to be the inspiration for many because of what he’s achieved, directing a brand that shows no signs of slowing down. What started off as a record label (until this day it’s still one of the most important labels for house and techno, as you will be able to see reflected on charts like Beatport and Resident Advisor) is now a symbol for cat and dance music lovers. Coyu directs with great precision a brand that because of such a demand is also a brand of clothes (Suara Store, with a physical store in Barcelona) and a non-lucrative organization that loves and helps street cats (Suara Foundation).
Following a flurry of great remixes and collaborations for the likes of Green Velvet, Fatboy 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 as Get Physical, Bedrock, Cocoon, 100% Pure, Systematic, etc. He’s also in the top 50 of all-time most charted artists on Resident Advisor, a feat not easily replicated!
Hi next big step forward in his unstoppable musical career is already marked. Coyu is releasing in 2018 his highly anticipated debut LP. First single –“1+1”– it was released in Summer 2017 and it was premiered / supported by big titles and radios like Mixmag, BBC Radio 1 or Eton Messy. The pack with the singles includes remixes by Gerd Janson, Comsin TRG and Truncate.
