Cristian Varela

Thu 07.10.2010

Cristian Varela (yes, no 'h') is an acclaimed heavyweight techno DJ from Spain, based in Madrid.  An inspiration within the techno community, he is lorded particularly by Carl Cox, for whom he played at The Revolution Continues at Space.

He has had a great summer in Ibiza this year playing at Eden and hosting his own one off night at Space, Cristian Varela and Friends. 

In the clip, DJsounds talks to him about his friendship with Carl and how his classical music training has influenced and inspired his sound.  He then gets technical and tells us how the various generations of CDJ have changed his life.  He has won Best Spanish Techno DJ for eight years consecutively and you can see why in the clip as he plays across three CDJ-2000s with ease.  He also took time out of dancing at Carl Cox's funk and disco beach party at Sands to tell us about his new album and tour.
