Danny Avila

To have achieved what Danny Avila has at the age of 25 is phenomenal enough. To have done it with such integrity and passion makes it even more special. With a feisty production sound and a unique DJ style, he is a breath of fresh air in a world where many artists are happy to stick to the same formula. In addition to his international multi-single deal with SONY MUSIC, his music has also been released on major labels including Interscope, Musical Freedom, Spinnin’ Records, Hexagon, Smash The House and Ultra Music, followed by a history of hundreds of million streams. In 2017, he made the highest re-entry to the DJ Mag Top100 DJs 2017 poll at #52, while in 2020 reaching #38, still being the highest ranked Spanish DJ ever, emphasizing his powerful impact on the scene as of late. In Danny’s eyes, DJing is a form of art, hence the variety of genres from techno to big-room and from tech-house to trap, always finding a way to take people on a journey. This mentality has been a rewarding one to say the least, having achieved what many DJs can only dream of at 25. On top of his weekly radio show, he also counts three compilations to his name: ‘Ministry of Sound presents: Danny Avila Live’, Space Ibiza’s ‘Ibiza Calling’ and DJ Mag UK Danny Avila’s Big Room Mix. Danny was the youngest artist to ever make the cover mount CD for DJ Mag UK. To top of his extremely long list of musical achievements, Danny Avila has collaborated with world-renowned fashion brands New Yorker, and tigha, who approached him due to his extravagant style. After starting DJing in his native Marbella at 12 and producing from the age of 13, Danny moved to Madrid at just 14 to cut his teeth in the city’s club scene, with the prodigious talent scoring gigs before he was legally allowed into clubs. “I knew it was going to be hard,” he says “but there was just nowhere for me to get any real experience playing out in Marbella and I’ve never let my age stop me doing anything. My older brother spoke to local promoters for me and that’s how I started getting my very first gigs.”
