Biography

Iu was born in Barcelona in 1976. His career as DJ starts in the emblematic Sitges club of L’Atlantida. That same year he starts as resident DJ in the Barcelona discotheque El coao de tu prima and plays there during three years. He shares his last year as resident in El coao de tu prima with different well-known afters in Barcelona such as Heart, Pink or Bronx.

From November 200, Iu has concentrated efforts in a personal project called Zen Club. He has deeply committed himself as Art Manager of the club as well as resident DJ, making the name of Zen Club a reference to international level. His club has seen DJ’s as reputed as Paco Osuna, Marco Carola, Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Angel Molina, Gaetano Parisio, Adam Beyer, Rino Cerrone, Danilo Vigorito, Sideral, Toni Ra­os, John Selway, Dk7, Frank Lorber, Martini Bras, Northern Lite, Alex Under, Sex in Dallas, Metro Area, Chicken Lips, MIA among others.

His ability to read both the dancefloor and his public, his natural attraction for risk and mixed styles are always a great rewarding surprise. His sessions cover a unique variety of styles like “minimal”, “minimal house”, “electro” or “techno”.

His experience, added to his good criteria and broad musical culture, have allowed him to perform in major events as celebrated as A Tribute Love Parade (Colombia 2002), Dinamix Festival (Italy 2003), Jellyfish, Almodovar (Rep. Dominicana 2003), Loops (Kosovo 2004), Loft Club (Switzerland 2005), participating also in national circuits like Marlboro Dance Tour ’02, Colors Festival, Leitmotiv ’04 and ’05 or ElectroSplash ’05 playing in clubs such as La Terrrazza, The Loft (Barcelona), Danzatoria, Pacha (Barcelona, Torrevieja), City Hall, Blau (Girona), Ohm (Madrid), Macarena, Solid, Zomm, La Cova, Ambit (Andorra), etc.

His last steps have brought him towards production, where he has already composed the theme and band for the theatre play Rei Lear (Calixte Bieito, 2004). Iu is now preparing his second discography production that will soon see the light at Italian’s label Minisketch, with Paco Osuna, Davide Squillace and Ricard, after the first release at Subterfuge Records, Cycle – Confusion (Zen Club Rmx), also with Ricard.
