Javier Logares has had rhythm flowing through him since his early teens. Coming from an instrumental background, hard work and sheer talent have seen him go from strength to strength in the 9 years he has been involved in electronic music. 2015 is no different, as Javier continues to build on his growing reputation as an artist who never ceases to evolve and inspire.
Having built up a formidable reputation as a teenager for being one of the most popular drummers in Asturias, Spain, Javier’s creativity saw him shifting out from behind the drums, and experimenting with composition on the piano and guitar.
In 2002, Javier left Spain for London, where he started going to his first techno parties. Instantly hooked on the creativity and intricacy of electronic music, he began experimenting with production, finding ways to combine electronic and more conventional musical elements with his natural flair and pop sensibility.
Early in 2007 Javier decided to move to Berlin to fully immerse himself in the electronic music scene. He was fortunate enough to soon be rubbing shoulders with some of the city’s musical pioneers, and quickly became part of the notorious Bar25 family. This resulted in a string of releases, including "Intringulis", (with a remix from Gavin Herlihy), "The Right Clue" and "Plastik Puppe".
Having joined the Get Physical stable in 2010, things really kicked off, with a string of successful releases and remixes. Shortly after his debut release, "El Sueño Español", the classy single quickly got picked up by various big names, including M.A.N.D.Y., Mr. C, Thomas Schumacher and has been featured on Dave Seaman’s “Global Underground: Lithuania” compilation.
With the release of his Silicon Drift EP on Get Physical, we saw Javier push the boundaries of his music even further, dabbling with a slightly darker, more techy sound, to awesome effect. Remixes come courtesy of two of the scene stalwarts, Roman Fluegel and Dapayk, making this release a must have for any dance music fan worth their salt.
Javier has rapidly established himself on the international stage with appearances in Australia, France, Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK, while also holding down two highly successful residencies: The “Limit 500” in Valencia, Spain, and “Ladies First”, in Berlin, where he has already played host to an impressive roster of guests, including Siopis, Magit Cacoon, Julian Ganzer and an ever growing list of Berlin's up and coming artists.
