Javi Redondo started DJing in the late 90s in his hometown of Cordoba in the south of Spain before moving to Madrid, where he still resides today. There he crafted a career that would later help evolve and define Spain’s electronic music scene, making him one of the most significant characters in the Spanish scene today. This trajectory has also allowed him to showcase his eclecticism and musical background with appearances all over the world in clubs like Fabric in London, Rex in Paris, Nitsa in Barcelona and the fabled Panorama Bar in Berlin. In 2018 Javi made his Boiler Room debut alongside his Correspondant crew.
Javi’s rise began in Madrid’s iconic club Sport where he spent five years as resident DJ and was also responsible for the club’s programming. It was in this 200 person capacity club and its solid sound system that he proved himself a resourceful DJ with a very wide vision. Here he developed his own genre defying personal style, distinct in his ability to successfully mix down beat rarities with a mixture of different sounds and genres ranging from EBM and techno to post-punk and everything in between.
With that, he secured (2015 – early 2017) a much-coveted spot over at Madrid’s beloved Mondo Disko, which is revered as one of Europe’s finest underground music clubs, where he played alongside some of the biggest names in dance music.
In addition to DJing, Javi’s productions have begun to gain traction in the world of electronic music. He started honing his skills back in 2007 but it wasn’t until 2012 that he became serious about it. Since then his music has appeared on labels such as Meant, My Favorite Robot, Astrolab and Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant, which is the imprint that he calls home and where he has released the most music. In the past few years, Javi’s productions found a strong support list including the likes of Dixon, Ben UFO, Laurent Garnier, Erol Alkan, Axel Boman, John Talabot, Mano Le Tough, Andrew Weatherall, Ivan Smagghe and many more of underground’s music royalty.
Javi is currently working as a music director at Ballesta club in Madrid, a venue that has gained international reputation since 2018 and where Javi also works as a resident Dj.
Javi’s productions and his sets share a particular eclecticism and uncompromising passion for dissimilar sounds that he fuses with ability and technique. His open- mindedness and unique expression is what defines Javi Redondo as an artist.
