11 May Remix Coyu – Life Without You
Remix Coyu – Life Without You
Welcome to #4 in the official remix competition series of Movement Detroit 2017, #RemixDetroit, presented by Metapop, Native Instruments and Paxahau.
This week, it’s Coyu’s pulsating techno track, “Life WIthout You”, taken from his 2017 Nin EP. Created as a loving tribute to one of his close friends who passed away, the Suara label boss, born Ivan Ramos, delivers a driving cut punctuated with pulsing synth and haunting vocal snippets that will give you goosebumps. “I hope that listening to this track, so personal, so mine, so Nin, you can get to know him a little bit better and that his memory perpetuates forever,” he said.
Got what it takes to become the next #RemixDetroit champion?
Enter your remix by June 7, 2017 for a chance to win an exclusive prize including Native Instruments Komplete, a complimentary LANDR pro subscription ($299 value per winner) and an official commercial release.
#RemixDetroit winners for this contest will be chosen by Coyu himself.
Make Your Mark — #RemixDetroit
‘The Big Cat’, Catalan DJ/producer better known internationally as COYU is the priest of the Suara house and techno temple which is without a doubt one of the most prominent imprints in the worldwide electronic music scene, reached #1 on both Beatport and Resident Advisor. Following a flurry of great remixes for the likes of 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.
The worldwide clubbing music scene has surrendered to Coyu’s performances. He recruited fans from every corner of the globe, playing at venues and festivals such as BPM Festival (Mexico), Sónar, Misteryland, ADE (Amsterdam-NL), Winter Music Conference (Miami-USA), Piknic Electronik, Supersonic (India), Ultra Music Festival, Boiler Room / Stay True Spain (Barcelona), MixMag / The Lab (UK), Ministry Of Sound, ETC.
And of course, Ibiza and Barcelona! After a remarked residency in Pacha (‘Insane’ on Fridays) alongside artists such as John Digweed, Mark Farina, Steve Lawler, Derrick Carter and Fritz Kalkbrenner. Coyu and his ‘restless kitties team’ have even presented a successful Ibizan Suara weekly residency at Booom (2014) and Sankeys (2015).
In his hometown (Barcelona) he frequently held as well very successful label nights, both with Suara & Feline (his brand new and more underground techno label), currently at Under club and Apolo-Nitsa respectively.
