Some people are simply blessed with the gift of good taste, and Gelab is one of those cases. A rara avis in the world of young EDM producers and DJs, he has managed to take his sets halfway across the globe without a single track in the market. He grasped early that his path was to keep searching for his personal sound and musical personality, and that his time to shine would come through hard work. Now in his early twenties, and with a distinct voice uncanny for a producer his age, his time has come, with his signing for Universal Music’s electronic music label Aftercluv, and in collaboration with Dr. Music Dj, with which he will lay down some of his first releases this 2015.
Gelab’s career has moved forward relentlessly ever since the first time he got behind the decks to pump a party. After a few stints playing at some of the most legendary clubs in the Balearic Islands, Gelab got his first big break last year with a hardly-earned residency at the Ibiza Calling parties, held every Wednesday at Space Ibiza. His weekly triumphs in this booth led him to be commissioned the 2014 Ibiza Calling Compilation CD. During these few years he has shared the stage with world-class artists such as Hardwell, Nicky Romero, R3hab, Krewella, DJ Bl3nd, or Quintino, among many others.
Gelab’s killer sets quickly placed him among the newest and most exciting EDM DJs on the island and internationally, and caught the eye of the best festivals and clubs in the world, such as UMF Miami, UMF Europe, Rage Festival South Africa, Ushuaia, Colosseum, Zouk Singapore, or Space Moscow, in which he opened for Tiesto for the club’s inauguration, among many others. This intense hype sent Gelab off on an international touring frenzy at the end of last year, which graced venues in three continents, and is bound to keep doing so this year with his debut releases.
