Well would you look at that – Toy Toy has gone and booked an absolutely incredible headliner for the last friday of the month. Yes, that’s right… on Friday 27th January TOY TOY presents EDU IMBERNON, playing alongside Residents Sound Sensible, Andi Dill and Dogstarr
Presale: R100 @ Nutickets
Sprouting from city of “valour” – Valencia – songwriter, producer, remixer, DJ and label owner, the multifaceted artist Edu Imbernon has turned into a truly global electronic music proposition.
Edu’s blend of electronica, house and indie has seen him release original music on institutions such as Bedrock and Get Physical, as well as newer pretenders Culprit and Suara.
It was during the years 2008 and 2009 though, when Edu exploded onto the international electronic music landscape. Firstly, “El Baile Alemán” on Liebe Detail (produced with his friend Coyu) was appointed “Best Underground Track of the Year” by Beatport. Secondly, his label Elektisch was born, which has seen Edu curate original music and remixes from the likes of Pleasurekraft, Blond:ish, Hot Since 82, Solomun and David August for the imprint, as well as close friends and newer talents Los Suruba, Sivesgaard and Dosem.
As a remixer, Edu comes into this own. His ‘anthemic’ remix of The XX”s “Crystalised”, from their stratospheric “xx” album, proved to be Young Turks best selling remix to date. Follow up remixes of Maya Jane Coles’ “You” for Hypercolour and X-‐Press 2′s monster “Lazy” cemented him as a top tier remixer and sustained DJ support from the likes of John Digweed, Jamie Jones, Sasha, further cements his ascendancy towards the upper echelons.
From the lounge bars of Lebanon, forests of Brazil and the magic of Goa, all the way to the Miami bay-front for Ultra Music Festival, the open air madness of the Kings Day street party, Amsterdam, and the hallowed terrace of Space Ibiza, as resident; Edu’s massive touring schedule continues to broaden.
The tastemaker clubs of Watergate, Berlin, Warung Beach Club & D-‐Edge, Brazil and fabric, London, have all laid host to Edu’s DJ talents, while his “Fayer” brand has taken root in his home town of Valencia and is set for sustained international exposure…
