DJ & producer Unai Trotti always had an innate passion for electronic music. Born in Bilbao but lived in Madrid, while being a teenager he begins to focus on the electronic music and shares a number of sessions between his circle of friends.
At the age of 13 years, acquiring his first turntables and his introduction to the world of vinyl, Unai starts to buy a large number of Records. Once he finished his high school studies he enters the ECAM, where he studied Sound Engineering. Years are devoted to his studies and his DJ sets are made in private parties. After some time working as a sound technician in direct tours of various artists and companies of Dance, decided to travel to London in 2008 and expand his knowledge of sound.
In London Unai starts to work as waiter in the famous Café1001. It is here where he met Altino Fernandes (aka KID AM) and joins Brickbeat collective. Brickbeat is a group of dj, vj and free thinkers sharing the love for the music beats and also is a well- known London’s promotion, founded by Altino fernandes and Gabriel Pereira in 2004, famous for bringing new talented artists and famous international guests to its parties. Being part of Brickbeat gives to Unai the opportunity to play several times in Cafe 1001.
Unai and his dynamic dj sets shortly begun to get noticed by the crowd. In October 2009 Unai throw his first own warehouse party called Cartuli’s Day, based in different warehouse in East London area, with the aim of bringing back the almost lost underground spirit in the techno/house minimal parties in the beating heart of London’s music scene, the East side.
Cartulis gives to Unai the opportunity to make himself noticed not just by the audience but also by the industry: in short time he has been invited to play in the most famous London’s venues.
Unai’s talent is revealed in both production and dj sets. Always giving himself entirely to the audience, Unai’s mixes are a reflection of his personality: dynamic groovy, deep and intense. Unai’s style goes from techouse to techno to more melodic & deep sounds, passing by minimal & dub. In constant connection with the crowd, Unai always creates a specific feeling on the dancefloor: only thing you can do while Unai is on the decks is dance.
Now working full time between the studio and Cartuli’s Day, with a new release out, Unai is one of London’s most important taste makers.
