Drawing on years of experience and his Balearic upbringing, DUBOSS is making the feel-good music you need right now. A child of the ‘80s, he grew up with his Spanish mother and Swiss father in Mallorca — Ibiza’s big sister island. As a result, he was influenced from an early age by top European DJs who would come and play at his home island’s clubs, including the legendary BCM. This melting pot of sounds turned him onto Italo disco, classic ‘80s anthems and techno-pop and later ‘90s Balearic house. All this fuses into his high-energy, euphoric contemporary club-pop sounds.
A well-seasoned traveller, he also draws influence from across the world. His parents say that “he wanted to become a tourist when he would grow up”, and he has worked hard to achieve that goal, visiting around 100 countries across his life. Aside from his home island, he has lived in Barcelona, San Francisco, Santiago de Chile and now Singapore. Aside from music, he’s a big exercise fanatic and practices mindfulness and likes to keep engaged in world affairs and social causes.
He has been making music since a young age, and was involved with some successful music projects in the ‘90s, but this project marks an entirely fresh start for him. His first single ‘Voyage Voyage’ channels the glorious sounds of dramatic ‘80s European pop in its glorious vocal and trance synths, before slamming into a bouncing slap house groove with jaunty melodies creating a playful feel. It’s exactly the sort of joyful music you can expect to hear coming out of his studio and dominating dancefloors over the next few years.
