Music is the blood that drains his veins and the oxygen that fills his lungs. Playing the clubs and producing in the studio, his beats give pure energy to a worldwide crowd. Welcome to Christian Arenas universe!
Barcelona based, Christian Arenas started very young to show great interest in technology, computers and how the music could be done on these 80’s dear machines. From the first trackers to actually sequencers he always tried to do his best channeling his feelings with melodies, kick drums or any twisted sound that makes people going nuts.
In second half of 90’s Christian started to release his first dance productions with different alias for the spanish dance scene taking part in a lot of compilations and working in some radio stations like Flaix FM, a well know dance radio station in Catalonia where he was able to share rewarding great experiences with some of the best producers and Dj’s of the worldwide club scene.
In early 00’s Christian was nominated as ‘Best Dj Newcommer’ and "Best Dance Song’ for Deejay Mag and DJ1 Mag spanish awards respectively. Started to dj around Catalonia, Spain and Ibiza highlighting the “Megaplec Dance” a great international festival from Barcelona City (now missing) taking part in the last edition in 2003. In 2005 started to rock the most important places and beach clubs of his city: Barcelona.
He gets enough time in the studio, so when he dj, uses to perform organic sets where he tests his own tracks out to see how they work in the dancefloor, as he says “it helps me to keep my edge and it’s a cool way to stay connected with clubbers”. His sharp and effective sets with his high octane energetic style keeps the crowd dancing, jumping and screaming to finish really late.
His infectious vision for music and his cutting-edge style has placed Christian behind many peaktime tracks like the floorfiller “Feel The Night” featuring Tania Mashay on Starlight Music (2010) rocking charts and peaking at #1 on Beatport for several weeks and remixed by acclaimed producers like Aki Bergen and David Jones. Another tracks in the past like “Mulera”, “Feeling Wrong” or the remix of “Behind The Eyes” from Nacho Chapado, got a huge support from many dj’s and producers worldwide (Bastian (Armada Music), Matt Darey, Sasha, Roger Sanchez (Release Yourself), Tom Middleton or Mark Knight) “this crazy feedback fills me up to do my best, it prevents me to feel like slacking off, i’m so happy to have this job”.
In early 2011 the ball started rolling faster, Christian joined Selekted Music, a great dutch label to release “After Storm”, an energetic house progressive track supported by artists like Dj Chuckie (Dirty Dutch), Melvin Reese, Corey Gibbons, Stuart Millar (BBC Radio 1), among others…
In the second half of the year, Christian joined forces again with one of his best vocalists, Tania Mashay, to release on the well know label ‘Starlight Music’, the follow up of “Feel The Night”: “Music Is What Life Sounds Like” peaked quickly on the Beatport Top100 Progressive House Chart (ranked #63) and remained on top charts for a month.
Another top releases will come soon until the end of this year from ‘Housepital Records’ another dutch cool label.
His creative efforts have resulted too in huge and energetic personal remixes and mash-ups called ‘Arenas Supermode’: unreleased acapellas from vocalist friends, house anthems, pop and rock songs, anything good is enough to ‘Supermode’ and re-twist it!! After a while keeping his exclusive ‘Arenas Supermode’ tracks for his own sets, Christian make them available for download at his Soundcloud profile.
