Over the last ten years, Madrid born Jose Cabrera has proved that he has a diverse taste in music, and an equally diverse output. Music that is made for the floor, music that works on distilling techno to is rawest and most core elements and music that aims to hypnotise dance floors with its absorbing sense of mood and groove.
As well as EP’s on labels like Deeply Rooted, Tresor Records & Ben Sims’ Symbolism, he has also released on his own labels, Cabrera and A Harmless Deed. 2015 came correct with a fully immersive full length at Fred P’s Soul People Music, “Portrait of the Flying Sky”. It was a well received album that found J.C exploring his most compelling techno atmospheres yet. Full of refined grooves, slicks bleeps and bass and subtly spaced out synths, it proved a big success with DJs, dancers and worldwide press alike.
In the end of 2016 released his second LP through Semantica Records, “Mugako”, named after the festival he organizes together with the Contemporary Art Museum of the Basque Country in Vitoria-Gasteiz. In 2017, he releases his third album together with Kastil, called No Spiritual Surrender at his own imprint, Cabrera.
As a DJ, this well travelled Spaniard is just as accomplished— In 2014 he became part of the resident team at the legendary Tresor club, most often found stitching together visceral techno soundtracks, electro and ambient whenever it is need in order to complete the musical path down which he takes you. Of course, J.C also plays at various other clubs and festivals around Europe and as such is a key part of the global techno conversation.
