Captured at the tender age of 14 by the dance sounds of the 90s, Phat Traktor, aka Jose Vinilo, remains dedicated to his passion, Stockholm style, to the music that took him at so tender an age. During this time he began experimenting with music production and the technologies to which he now confesses he is addicted. Like any junkie he has a singular objective, to pursue his addiction, decimating boundaries and developing a unique style. This journey has taken him through derivations from House, fused with sounds from Deep to Techno, progressing to a much bolder sound with Tech House. His explosive sessions entertain crowds who, enraptured by his contagious energy, collude with him through the voyage of his irreverent, and endlessly unpredictable sets, in an atmosphere that explodes the air like a night in downtown Bhagdad.
Phat Traktor can boast shared line ups with John Digweed, Marco Carolla, Joris Voorn and James Zabielia, his productions have been recognized by artists such as Ben Manson, Mike Ivi, Bogdan Taran, Raul Blanco, DJ Jobani and The Flash brothers.
Phat Traktor has played at many top nights in notable clubs such as Ocana, Florida 135, La Boite Barcelona, Cafe da Madeira, Puerto Hurraco, Boulevard ,La Cova forest club, Mephisto (Voltech party), El Row, Le Bako secret club, Vertigo, Kgb, Pentagono (Barcelona), Sotavento, Le kasbah, Insomnia Viladecans, Mandawa, Natural Club Advance, Pacha Sitges, Sweet Pacha and Qbik Barcelona (Instinto).
Releases have appeared on Holographic Muzik and Impulse Music. Most recently he has signed with Bonzai and his first release ‘Voyage’ on their Progrez imprint has performed very well indeed. The track also made it onto the Bonzai Progressive compilation Club Trax Dark And Deep.
