“While his music is fluid and free, one thing that remains constant is his ability to take listeners on a journey of sound”
Irish-born, Spanish-based electronica DJ and producer, David, a.k.a. GuyRo got swept up by the electronica steam train back during it’s early beginnings. Harking back to his younger years, with fond memories as a pre-teen, armed with just a Sony Walkman and a collection of acid house mix tapes in his backpack, it is fair to say not many discover their passions quite as early as GuyRo. It wasn’t long into his teenage years before he’d develop an insatiable thirst for crate digging — flipping through record after record picking out the dancefloor gems that would further ignite his passion for music.
With an open mind and fierce curiosity for anything and everything electronic music-based, he has spent the past two decades soaking up a multitude of genres and styles ranging from Detroit techno, breaks, house, trance, drum & bass and hip-hop. Artists like 808 State, Blake Baxter, Public Enemy, Alex Reece, Photek and BT are just some of the musicians that went on to shape GuyRo into the tastemaker he is today.
Today, GuyRo focuses on pushing an infectious fusion of synth-laden techno and progressive house. With recent influences such as Danny Howells, LSG, Boston 168, Saeed & Palash, Sasha and Charlie May, you’ll be hard-pressed to argue for a lack of diversity within his sets, which comprise of both his own productions and others. His tracks go from the deeper end of downtempo and breaks through to the tougher grooves of house and techno.
Not one to pigeonhole himself into one style, GuyRo traverses the BPMs and moods and focuses on telling a story through progression with his DJ sets. A typical hour-set would see him build from laid-back ambient sounds, to proper “hands-in-the-air” techno and everything in between. To GuyRo, good music transcends genre, good music is simply good music.
And with over 20 years of crate digging, and turntable spinning, Guyro is no stranger to the electronic music scene. These days, he can be regularly found locked away in his studio, jamming together ideas and carving out his deep signature analog synth-lines and grooves for his next upcoming release. While a relatively new venture for him, the challenge has without a doubt seen him progress successfully into the next phase of his music career. With a slew of releases already under his belt, and constant releases in the pipeline, Guyro has set the bar high for his work ethic and continues to dedicate himself to the craft.
