Born in Malága (Andalusia) in a family of musicians in 1977, music has shaped his life since he was a little child. From Kraftwerk, John Fox, Soft Machine, Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno, Steel Pulse, King Crimson to Depeche Mode, his early influences are diverse and have greatly enriched his understanding of music and life. In 1995, at the age of 18, he began to finance his engineering studies with DJ Gigs. Money is not what moves him, but the passion and the interaction with people through music. Even after working as mechatronics engineer for 14 years, his passion for music never died. In 2004 he founded the label Neovinyl together with the artist Baldo (Good Ratio Music, BLD Tape Recordings). Shortly afterwards he moved from his hometown Málaga (Spain) to Cologne (Germany). Since then he has founded several event series such as “Rampa Zampa” and “Forest Trump” (where he and other artists perform), the Coworking Space "OutofSpace Studios", dedicated to professionals from audio-visual & media, and his own Label "Introp Music". Intro_p has been telling for years his own stories through his music productions and DJ-sets. He has continuosly developed his own concept of club music since the the middle 90´s. Influenced by his life experiences, the purpose of his dj-sets and music productions is to bring people together with strength and authenticity, all along following his instict to offer a balanced mixture of melancholy and joie de vivre.
I understand music as a way to express emotions. When I listen to music I try to understand its motivation and sometimes I can feel an intimate connection with it. As I am an open minded person, I love to be surprised and challenged by music, for example learning things or getting new perspectives of any kind. Because of the infinite possibilities for exploration, music inspires me to find creative ways to communicate.
I think that life is a precious gift and it needs to be enjoyed. I don´t mean just having fun but also from a spiritual perspective. My dream is to inspire myself and other people to be happy, do the right thing, be better human beings.
In my opinion, one of the worst things is greed. I think this has caused the most of the serious problems in the human history.
It´s very difficult to choose a song among all the records that we listened at home when I was a child. Maybe “The Robots” (Kraftwerk) or “Plaza” (John Foxx).

The infinite possibilities for exploration inspire me to find new ways to communicate with people. But my Inspiration is music itself.
There´s no single message that I want to send. In general terms I want to encourage people to enjoy, to do the best they can, to build their own opinion, to be authentic and grateful, to look after the mother earth.
When I perform in front of an audience, my goal is to make them enjoy my set and make the experience epic and memorable. Due to my high expectations, I am a little bit nervous at first. A few minutes later I start to enjoy myself.
In my opinion the music scene has grown a lot. There are much more artists than before and the new technologies allow us to search and play music more easily, and to get in contact with other artists or with the audience. This democratization of the music can be something good. On the other side, I think it is more difficult to make and promote alternative music today, because everyone is exposed to a large amount of distractions and information. For the future, I would like to see more projects dedicated to the search and support of upcoming and underground artists.
Let´s see. I don´t have an opinion yet.
I am an Idealist, spend a lot of time working in the studio because I want to develope myself forever and to make awesome music one day. Most people say that you should do a lot of networking to have chances out there. I do believe that you can make it as well through hard work, but I know also that I could have more success changing my attitude.
Yes, I go regularly to Shows. I started several collaborations projects as well.
I think it is necessary to make good music, be a good marketer and be persistent. All the three conditions must be given at the same time.
