Emi Galvan: The very name exudes style and intrigue-a city lord, perhaps, who at night throws open the manor gates to host all-night bacchanals legendary for their wine and song. And though the Argentinian-born and based artist may not have a manor to his name, the rest isn't far off the mark... Emi has earned a reputation as a kind of crown prince of uplifting electronic music-a trickster who spreads his mischief via long, undulating DJ sets and bewilderingly funky releases.
No surprise to learn that Emi's roots go deep. His musical prehistory may be similar to many of his generation: raised on rock and electronic bands like Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Groove Armada, Underworld and Faithless. Complete with the obligatory attempt to learn to play guitar and sing followed by long-lived bands for more than 12 years.
Over the past years, Emi has curated original music and remixes on labels like SUDBEAT, The Soundgarden, Balance, Movement Recordings, Plattenbank, Manual Music, Baroque Records and ICONYC to name a few, confirming his reputation as a top talent and with sustained DJ support from the likes of Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Cid Inc, Eelke Kleijn, Guy J, Guy Mantzur, Above & Beyond and Aly & Fila just, which further cemented his ascendancy towards the upper echelons.
As one of Argentina’s most in demand DJs, Emi has travelled the world, delighting crowds in Egypt, Greece, Sri Lanka, Hungary, Malta, Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Spain, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Paraguay and Uruguay.
A recent highlight in the Argentine’s sets has been his unofficial remix of Massive Attack’s ‘Girl I Love You.’ Emi’s version has seen considerable live play in recent months, with Guy J, Guy Mantzur, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Warren, Sebastien Leger and more all airing the remix across their sets. Forever choosy in his projects, Emi also begins his 2023 production schedule by adding Replug to his resume with a two-track showcase entitled ‘Samsara’.
What does the future hold for Emi? A debut artist album, a live show and global club tour maybe, "who knows" Emi says, as those are just a few of the things he would like get of his personal checklist. For one of the most talented, hard-working and gregarious artists in today's electronic music scene, it makes total sense and wouldn't surprise anyone, if he would archive those goals in no time, such is his love and dedication for the things he does.
