Rayco Santos

“I was born in Tenerife on a sunny day in September 1980. I was a quiet kid but also sporty and a good student. As a teenager, I became increasingly interested in underground music and bought vinyl, compulsively, stuff like Michael Jackson, Madonna, George Michael and Juan Luis Guerra. I arrived in Ibiza for the first time in the summer of 2000. Musically, the Ibiza scene blew my mind. It went so deep that I’ve had a home here for ten years. I’ve been with Nassau Group for about seven years: I’m a regular in the DJ booth at Nassau, Tanit and Dunes. As a DJ, I try to be as versatile as possible, I like to be up-to-date, musically speaking, and I like to be elegant when I play. During the day, I make my music the ideal soundtrack for sunbathing. But at night or when the sun is scorching, I turn things upside down as soon as possible. I identify with deep house: my podcast Ready To Be Chilled and my radio show on Balearica revolve around this style. For one-off sets, I like to experiment with ambient sounds.”
