FAHRENHEIT – SATURDAY APRIL 20
|Nowadays, translated to musical language, Suruba could mean a cool party club cheered by some sort of quality music, both fresh and fun; the one where you can’t stop dancing even to ask for another drink. The perfect soundtrack for that good vibe party that keeps on until the sun reaches its top, or beyond.|
After knowing each other while both studied design, and after a couple of years working separately as dj’s, producers and promoters, Delmar and Alvaro take the step of uniting under the badge “Los Suruba”.
Their productions have also made them known as one of the main pieces of young underground musicians in Spain. Out of their study come nothing but serious beats, severe and electronic, elaborate but coming out naturally, best for making the crowd move.
“I feel it as my duty to translate the special feeling I get from this music to my djsets.” Gigs at Paradiso, Poema, Indian Summer Festival, 18hrs Festival, Woodstock 69, Stalker, 12 Inch City and Gramdioos all reflect this. The raging crowd at his closing set on Queensday is the best example, Rene says. “Closing after Gabriel Ananda and taking a mere five thousand people on my musical journey, is priceless.”
The first release Rene Engel did was a collab with Kid Culture and was released on Amsterdam based Bitten Records. This 2000 and One and Sandy Huner label gave wings to the release, which got support by Karotte, Dubfire, Deetron and Hermanez, to name a few. June 2012 another collab with Kid Culture was released. “He means true inspiration to me.
Without him the Visions EP never existed.” The track was released by Sincopat, with remix work by X-Press2 and AFFKT. Studio work continues and more and more people are interested in what is next for Rene Engel. He is convinced it’s his job to make sure the expectations get fulfilled. “I aim pretty high. Think Nuno Dos Santos his record choice and dynamic sets. Think the way an artist like Dixon makes a night from head to toe.” Was signed, Rene Engel.
