It is impossible to start speaking professionally about Jose Angel Palacios Robles 'Joton' without drawing his first steps , which led from the track to the cabin , without falling into several topics that open the bios of dozens of Spanish DJs of the last decades… We will leave the more predictable 'literature' aside and go directly to 20 and many years (well into the XXI century), when Joton evidences his maturity as a dj: he takes on a style, technique and musical selection that identify him and can finally allow progressively the pleasure of selecting where to play on a Saturday.
We entered the millennium: finally the fear of 'Year 2000' dissipates and on the other hand Joton’s personality and charisma continue to publicize: his maturity as a dj, conducted with serenity and discretion make him continue growing until the year 2001 when he creates the label 'Newrhythmic'. This label gives name to a clothing store + albums, and it is here where his base of operations is established to date.
Joton reaffirms in the genre he likes, with the one that most he is identified with and the one he blends as few rookies: dark techno, mixed with precision and speed. On special occasions and under the aka 'Sonny Crockett', Joton explores sounds from tech-house and electro, but he soon moves away from this aspect to focus on the purest techno.
In 2005 he starts producing his own music and presents his 1st reference with Newrhythmic: a vinyl 12 "with Aitor Ronda. Since then Joton has grown to publish his work on international labels such as Naked Lunch , Inspired Dynamic Reflection , Psychoskunk , Injected Poison , Consumer Recreation Services , Parallel 125 , Amigos
Take more Music , Induxxtriall , Disclosure , Kentra ...
Joton opens 2012 with over 70 signed references, and among them there are collaborations with world-renowned producers such as Ben Sims, Oscar Mulero, Pacou, Exium, Paul Mac, Grovskopa, A. Paul, Radial, Baas Mooy, Jeroen Search, Christian Wunsch ... Joton is now indisputably a professional dj and producer. He finds the possibility, so long sounded, to devote himself fully to music.
As for work in the cabin: from 2005 shares space with devoted dj's as Kazu Kimura, Pepo or Exium ... and he continually learns from them. He runs with them their `tours’ around the peninsula. Before long his pieces of work are profiled in media such as magazine Dj1 or charts the likes of Rolando (UR - Detroit, USA), Subspace (Axis - Mirage, FR), Gayle San (Equator - Singapur), Ben Sims (Hardgroove - UK), Oscar Mulero (WarmUp - ES), Ben Klock (Berghain - Berlin, DE), Pacou (Tresor - Berlin, DE), Tommy Four Seven (CLR - DE) Truncate ( Droid USA ) Go Hiyama ( Straboscopic Artefacts - JP ) o Jerome Sydenham (Ibadan Rec. - SWE).
A consequence of this increased media presence, increases Joton visits abroad, playing in the Netherlands, Portugal, Germany, Ireland, Italy, UK ... so far. The turn of the decade - 2010 - imposes itself undisputed acceptance of digital format as a basis for any dj session: resistance to change that the heart and the love of vinyl suggest, can not, in practice, fight against the evidence of a market that punishes the purist with a decreasing publication of new releases in the traditional format, vinyl ...But Joton makes this circumstance a chance and with Xone4D discovers new possibilities that are a new boost to his ability to connect with the track that sounds under his rhythm.
