DT748 – De La Swing
De La Swing (aka Domingo Bellot) has become one of the most solid DJs and producers in the electronic music scene, in Spain, Europe and worldwide. The Madrid-born artists was influenced in the early stages of his career by the sound of icons such as Laurent Garnier, Fatboy Slim or The Chemical Brothers, never letting just one style take over his repertoire. Genres as d&b, techno or house have been always present in his selection, but also sounds closer to broken beats or hip-hop, with references as Mos Def, Cypress Hill or DJ Shadow clearly present, among many others.
Long has passed and De La Swing has experimented a noticeable evolution in his sound, that navigates today close to minimalistic, deeper and classic house sounds. Being one of the most in-demand artists in scenes as the British, French, Netherlander or Belgian, De La Swing has also strengthen his position in the US and South America, not forgetting his presence in more exotic destinations as UAE, South Africa or Australia.
Currently based in Barcelona, a highlight in De La Swing’s career is his key role as stalwart of one of the most important clubbing brands in electronic music: elrow. Being an active member of the family, De La Swing has stablished himself as a reference artists of elrow’s roster, becoming resident by own right in elrow worldwide events. Thanks to that, he has seen memorable moments pass, such as Space Ibiza Closing in 2016, now stablishing himself as a crowd’s favorite in elrow’s new home in the island: Amnesia Ibiza. But he hasn’t limited to that, being also a mainstay in iconic clubs of the White Isle, as Blue Marlin, Sankeys or the iconic DC10, Privilege or Ushuaïa Ibiza.
De La Swing has also strengthened his role as label manager and A&R of elrow Music, making it grow as one of the biggest discographic references in the industry. The label is now a mainstay of the top charts in platforms such as Beatport and is currently diversifying its sound with the creation of a satellite label, elrow Limited, dedicated to more select, deep, elegant and underground sounds.
