About

At the grand old age of 18, Danny Avila has become one of the hottest acts in the world of EDM. From winning the ‘Best Newcomer DJ’ at the prestigious 2011 Vicious Music Awards at just 16, through an incredible 2012 Ibiza season that caught the attention of everyone including Tiësto and dance bible DJ Mag where he became the youngest ever Covermount CD artist, to the announcement of his residency as the youngest ever prime-time DJ on US broadcasting behemoth SiriusXM, confirmed sets at Coachella 2013 and the Main Stage of Ultra Music Festival 2013, and inclusion in Billboard, MTV and Dancing Astronaut’s 2013 Ones To Watch lists, Avila is the name on everyone’s lips – and rightly so.

It’s a story that starts over five years ago. After haggling his way into some of Spain’s top club venues at the age of 12 to witness the passion and power of artists like Fedde le Grand, Afrojack, David Guetta and more from the confines of lighting booths and sound desks, the young Avila knew exactly where he wanted to be. Showing incredible determination and a vast sponge-like acquirement for music, Avila went from playing at friends’ parties to warm-up spots at Ku in Benidorm – where he was first noticed by le Grand. Proving an ability beyond his years to lay down sets oozing with tribal heat and rich in track selection that burst beyond the confines of the Beatport Top 10 charts, Avila’s reputation grew, and grew quickly. To anyone who’s witnessed him behind the DJ booth, it has come as no surprise. To see Danny in action is to be hit with the full force of an exuberant, excitable and unbridled energy for the music that he plays and the reaction from the crowd that marks him out as a truly passionate performer who both loves and understands the dance floor and what it stands for.

Fast forward to 2012, and it proved to be a phenomenal year for the young Spaniard. After earning his stripes in illustrious company thanks to early headline slots with Fedde le Grand, Martin Solveig, Afrojack, David Guetta and the Black Eyed Peas, Danny confirmed not one, not two but three residencies in Ibiza – at the jet-set hotspot Blue Marlin, at one of the world’s most celebrated venues, Space Ibiza, and at the personal behest of Tiësto, the legendary Pacha Ibiza where he appeared alongside the iconic Dutchman for an unbelievable 15 dates. A staggering 35 dates in total across the season, Danny Avila had well and truly landed on the White Isle.

While Avila was busy wowing the crowds in Ibiza, on the other side of the Atlantic, the powers that be were also paying attention. Stateside broadcasting behemoth SiriusXM, the largest purveyor of dance music on the North American continent, snapped up the teenager’s ‘Ready To Jump’ show without a moment’s hesitation, making him the youngest EVER prime-time resident to grace the airwaves – and this before Avila had even dropped a single beat on American soil. The show, a sizzling hour-long concoction of pure energy and fun is the perfect representation of the young Spaniard and has had rave reviews across the board from enamoured legions of new US fans. Finally, in September, Danny gave America and Canada what they had been waiting for with a massive inaugural tour that included a sensational three dates in NYC alone. Exploding inside DJ booths across the continent, tens of thousands witnessed both the power and creativity that had already set the European circuit ablaze. With the release of his debut single ‘Breaking Your Fall’ on Big Beat Records in October, the Avila wave began to build unprecedented speed, with music bible Billboard naming him as ‘One To Watch’ for their 2013 ’21 Under 21’ power list, swiftly followed by similar plaudits in the MTV Clubland list and the influential Dancing Astronaut list, underlining the huge impact Danny made in such a short space of time.

With 2013 dawning across the planet, the wave is beginning to approach tsunami levels. After further dates across North America and Europe and huge first-time appearances in key Asian cities, Danny’s management announced the launch of the Generation Wild tour, teaming him up with fellow musical firebrands Deniz Koyu, dBerrie and Mikael Weermets. The first of 20 nights opens in Chicago on January 31st and is already garnering huge press interest. Add to the concoction a brand new package of edits for ‘Breaking Your Fall’ and the imminent news of a massive remix collaboration with one of the biggest stars in recent musical history, and it’s becoming clear that if you want to keep up with Danny Avila, you need to be damn fast!

Oh – and if all that wasn’t enough, he’s not only spear heading the next generation of superstar DJ/producers – he’s also pretty damn prolific when it comes to anything concerning a board. Verging on pro skate- and snowboarder status, Avila’s also notched up 2nd in the Spanish Wakeboard Championships, 7th in the European Wakeboard Championships and 12th in the World Wakeboard Championships – as ever proving that he’s ready to jump no matter what the medium!

There is, it seems, absolutely no stopping Danny Avila at whatever he turns his hand to. The future beckons, and it’s practically blinding.
