Spanish born DJ/Producer/label owner, Snna
Snna made the decision to exchange a present, which was a video game console, for an old sound mixer Akiyama during Christmas in 1992. He began an eclectic trip together with two midi systems towards one passion for electric music that would set him on the way to the new 21st century with one clear idea; to not leave anybody indifferent to avant-garde, electronic, experimental music, although it would be too advanced for some minds.
Snna began to build a mixture sounds on his own through hours and hours board in his old attic in the year 1993, because at that time low cost courses for DJS didn’t exist. In a short period of time his sessions would provide a lot to talk about. He took possession of the turn tables firstly by the hand of Kike Jaen with only fifteen years old in 1995; the experience was in a professional booth, specifically in the legendary club Bananas, which was unique for a boy of his age.
By the years 1996, 1997 and 1998, he had begun to fill his musical library with global sounds and abstract trends, and developed his passion for rhythmic, forceful and contemporary bases. Later he participated in different competitions of DJS around the Valencian coast and finally got his first residence in Jango’s club, he was managed by his great friend Jorge during the weekends in the year 2002.
After two years of amazing events came the time of a magnificent residence in the well-known Valencian club Puzzle, he was working together with Kike Vega and Jose M� Aboga. Here he took up again the said project together with Manu Kane, diversifying trends perhaps too risked for many people. It is necessary to emphasize that in his musical career of more than fifteen years, Snna has performed in the best club in Valencia.
Once integrated the groupbefore mentioned , Snna will begin a new stage in the world of the production as for electronic digital music i know it recounts , 2009 it will be the year in which it forms his first reference in the market Riseseando will be the title chosen it mixes of analogical electronics with the best pads digitized , piece thatit will manage to be remix for the very well-known Mijail and all this i lower the label Darkside , new sensations that will contribute gigs in clubs as Barraca(Valencia) or Narita(Castellon) between others.
In the year 10 of the new 21st century , Snna gets hold of the residence in the room D-Box The Face(Valencia) where not only it will work as dj , if not in addition he will be the manager of the programming of the above mentioned room with clear ultramodern dyes. Nowadays a new work Pandemia has published , with Danny..s Remix Serrano a sonorus appliance of unsuspected sounds.
