His first official release in 2008 was ‘Warriors’ on the Milan Label Open Legs. Jambalay Records, his label was launched at their opening party in 2010 in Ibiza, Spain at Club Geminis in the Ibiza harbour.

The label and El Brujo then burst onto the worldwide scene with the legendary Maya Jane Coles first charting in her February Chart 2011; his track, ‘Mozambique’ in collaboration with Big Mojo, was his first physical CD release ’Nutty Fellas Are Go'. In January 2019, his release, ‘Plastic Dreams’ was originally released on Frame Worxx and ranked number #33 in the Beatport Hard Techno Top 100.

EL Brujo has released on labels such as Hydraulic, Naked Lunch, Elektrax, Frame Workxx, Lw Recordings, Subwoofer, Sound Dissonance, Physical Techno and many others. In May 2022 he was charted by DJ Rush and his track Shit Happens reached position number 10 in the Beatport top 100 for Jackin House.

His Unique sound is one of the unknown as the cosmos is a part of El Brujo and his creations are interstellar in his “Raw” approach whatever the music genre he conceives in music innovation. El Brujo will be giving us a guest DJ from his collection of House and Techno producers and artists every month.
