daWad [ Live at Zukunft 17.07.11 @ K-NAL ]

daWad is one of those producers who have always been surrounded by music: he enjoyed a classical music education and played cello at the conservatory of Valencia. His grandfather was an organist and composer in Provence and his mother a pianist. daWad's passion for composing began in his adolescence with a noisy-pop band in which he acted as bassist, singer and songwriter.

In the 1990s daWad discovered his fascination for electronic music. Experimenting with hardware such as sampler, groovebox etc. allowed daWad to define new sounds through the use of computer technology in his home studio. He describes himself as a proper laboratory rat and he recently discovered the integration of classic musical instruments such as cello and violin into his music (listen to daWad's remix of Ryan Davis "The Wolve").

Together with his friend Joff Logartz daWad manages IRM Records; a label that helps young, unknown artists to share their music with a wider audience and to collaborate with other musicians of all musical spheres.
In addition to his work for IRM Records and its labels friends (Klangwelt Backhome, Mescene, Locomatica…) daWad is currently working on a cello/electronica album.
