For this week’s Global Vibe Radio mix and the 176th of our series, we welcome Spanish producer, DJ and label-head Kwartz.
Kwartz is the stage name of Mario Campos, born in Madrid in 1989. In late 2011 and after publishing several EPs in different international labels, Kwartz’s productions began to draw the attention of the leading names in the international scene.
It was in 2013 when Exium, the Spanish duo, got in touch with him to publish a split EP called Fenomen which was his first release on vinyl. In late 2013 Kwartz joined PoleGroup and became part of the booking roster of the label commanded by Oscar Mulero, where he began to release his works regularly. In addition to PoleGroup, his tracks have appeared in several of the most important international labels, such as 47, Mord Records or Warm Up Recordings.
Kwartz is constantly searching for his own sound, so 2016 brings the launch his own label: Order&Devotion, where he will release those of his works which move in dark atmospheres with drones and deep and visceral sounds, all surrounded by rhythms designed for the dance floor.
