Fifteen years as a professional in the booths gives you plenty of opportunity. Without going any further, they have served our most stellar resident disc jockey, DJ Yoda, to build a solid reputation, filling almost all the venues in the city and half the country with black silk. And, if we add to this his position as right-hand man to the great leader of Spanish R&B, Flavio, whose debut album he produced and released, the picture is complete. Robust hip hop and the classic flavours of funk and soul complete the cardinal points of DJ Yoda’s musical personality.
Hooked on the most elegant black sounds almost since he was a teenager, Flavio Rodríguez is, without any shadow of doubt, the leading name when we talk about R&B in this country. With a voice and image with little to envy from the great figures on the other side of the Atlantic, Flavio has condensed the best essences of vintage soul, hip hop and R&B on two excellent, eclectic albums, capable of looking unselfconsciously towards the mainstream. As well as singing, composing and writing lyrics, this almost Renaissance b-boy has also found time to develop a very respectable career as a DJ with an operations base at our venue calling in at some of the top venues and events throughout the city. With the decks and with the mike – the cream of the cream.
If you ever want to know what you really need to be a good DJ, take a look at Joe Cabana, because he’s got it. The thing is that, beyond technique, which he has plenty of, our resident DJ has a greater capacity to understand what it is that makes a club night special and connect with the dancefloor, rising to almost supernatural levels. At top speed and with maximum certainty, Joe Cabana manages to fit up to 300 tunes in a single session and escape unscathed. And all this without shame or self-consciousness, which is just as it should be.
