A real Ibicenco who will be the curator of new and established artist around the world under his sound signature, he also will be hosting several radio shows like his 10 years old “Zoologica” a kaleidoscope space not only for house or techno but also a wide variety of styles within the electronic music. And new ones that will be announced very soon.
