Coyu “The Big Cat” is one of the most referenced and respected personalities on the techno scene. Ever since he founded his cat empire in 2008, Suara, he’s been known to be the inspiration for many because of what he’s achieved, directing a brand that shows no signs of slowing down. What started off as a record label (until this day it’s still one of the most important labels for house and techno, as you will be able to see reflected on charts like Beatport and Resident Advisor) is now a symbol for cat and dance music lovers. Coyu directs with great precision a brand that because of such a demand is also a brand of clothes (Suara Store, with a physical store in Barcelona) and a non-lucrative organization that loves and helps street cats (Suara Foundation).
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, Mysteryland, 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.
