As an all-time music lover, he began working in the Barcelona night life at a young age. Motivated strongly by the musical scene that was binding the city at that time.
Music was and still is the motor of his life, which he is so fascinated in, and was also what made him start a career as Dj in 1998, working in a circuit of clubs that the magical city of Barcelona beholds. Focused on electronic dance music, he is always trying to find the groove and add a personal touch of sensibility in his sets.
Additionally, he never stopped searching for the fusion that brings together the music with the next track that he’s playing, which he manages by his particular and refined taste for the most special trend and the wide variety that the electronic music posses. He soon began travelling to places like the Moog, La Terrrazza, the Nitsa club in the Apolo theatre, the CO2, the Isla D’Encanta, the Fonfone, the Macarena, the now mythical and disappeared Cube Club, situated where it used to be, the Japan, Club 13, famous for its young people parties, and others out of Barcelona like L’Atlantida de Sitges, el Ambit of Andorra, the 7th Art in Gerona (Spain), the Lexus-Backroom of Vic (Spain) and Several Beach Parties in Barcelona.
In 2002, he was part of the Star/Cue, a group dedicated to the development of electronic music in Catalonia (Spain). With REC, they went to different cities and music festivals in Catalonia, and their participation in the OPEN AIR festival was outstanding.
Their ELECTRO BOHEME in which Dj’s were mixed up with live shows formed an extraordinarily step in their career.

Becoming the co-founder of Science of Sounds, together they were to bring new ideas to the Asian stages, and by doing so, to open the doors to the international electronic music. Currently acting as the manager for many artists; in the meantime he also combines his work inside Science of Sounds with that of his own individual productions under the name of Crokan.
