Gallery Tuesdays

Danny Avila

Danny Avila runs us through his top five tracks.

Before he headlines The Gallery this Friday, we got the Spanish DJ to pick his top five tracks of the moment

DJ Vicious - "Calling"

Danny Avila: Sometimes a good melody is enough to build a track around it, without having to add too many additional elements. As I like to say, less is more, and this track is a good example example for that. I’ve played it many times in my shows and I'm impressed every time of how well it works!

Jack Ü - "Mind" ft Kai (Slushii Remix)

One thing many people might not know about Sonny (Skrillex) is his Heavy Metal side. He used to be part of From First To Last before he started his other projects which most of us know him for. Sonny has a brilliant voice which you can hear in this record together with Kai. This is one of my favourite records from the Jack Ü debut album and this remix by Slushii is on point. Great combination between a calm break and an awesome uplifting melodic trap type of drop.

Bojac & DSTRCT - "Formula"

Even though I’m better known for the more energetic kind of sound, I’ve always been inspired by groovier tracks. Toolroom Records was one of my main influences in my earlier days and for some reason this record brings me back to the techy stuff I used to play back then. I don’t want to forget to mention the great music Heldeep Records is putting out at the moment. Congrats Oliver Heldens for that!

Don Diablo - "Cutting Shapes" (Extended Mix)

Don has been in the game for quite a long time, but the past few years have been a rollercoaster for him. BIG fan of his music and this record is a good example of the awesome stuff he has been making lately. I included the very first version of this vocal Aaron Smith - "Dancin" on my 6h Deep House mix around 2013 and I couldn’t resist to start playing this new rework as soon as i heard it!

Twofold - "Summer" (Original Mix)

I don’t usually play the same track in several radio shows but this one made the cut. I’ve also opened a couple of shows with this brilliant piece of art. What a great melody and vocal. Love it!

Danny Avila is headliningThe Gallery on Friday 4th November, tickets & info here.
