There is no question that the Spanish pot of emerging electronic music talent leaves many of its global counterparts in the shadows in today’s oversubscribed industry. If you want something fresh and inspiring that is.
Los Suruba are a duo amidst a new generation of fine underground artists who exemplify this inventory, no mean feat in a country that houses some of the most influential European talent to break the scene over the past few years.
Delmar’s experience of the vibrant Madrid club scene began a few years prior, his earliest adventures feeding rap, reggae and funk compulsions. Eclectic sounds that would eventually lead him to the realms of electronic music. Keen to share his spinning knowledge with Alvaro, a growing appreciation for dance music led to a meeting of creative minds. Soon after, playing at parties together was to be something that locked their musical chemistry into a skyward ascent that would ultimately lead to the Los Suruba we know today.
Working out of their shared studio in Ibiza, permanent home to the boys for over two years now, Alvaro and Delmar have the more relaxed winter months on the Island to focus intently on their studio work and the Suruba label. The imprint, which was launched in 2007 has featured a huge array of heavyweights and newcomers alike; Robert Babicz, Gorge, Ripperton, Edu Imbernon, Amine Edge, Tigerskin and Hot Since 82 are just a small selection of their 180 strong artist label roster.
While the illustrious ‘Mantis EP’ still hangs thickly in the air over a year since it’s release (with the amazing remixes of Hot Since 82 and Edu Imbernon), ‘Fayer’ their latest signing on Culprit, again with Edu Imbernon, is devastating the airwaves with it’s upbeat, analog sounds. Brash guitar notes and Italo-influenced bass lines underpin the rich, multi-dimensional Los Suruba blueprint that resonates so well with fans. A legacy that will carry vibrations of the fading summer season far into the future.
