Ioan Gamboa profile


Ioan Gamboa is a Spanish electronic music producer who has settled his studio in Berlin, where he is absorbing, at first hand, the flowing energy of this rockin city.

While searching the way to improve his past productions, his creations got the support of Hernan Cattaneo with a release on Sudbeat label: ‘Spiral EP’, which was also honoured with a powerful remix by Cattaneo and Soundexile of the track that named the EP.

Since then, releases have came out in labels alike, near to the sounds and style he really wants to achieve. These latest releases have been supported and charted by artists like Hernan Cattaneo (Sudbeat/Renaissance), John Digweed (Bedrock) Henry Saiz (Reinassance/Natura Sonoris) or Nick Warren (Hope records).

Along his musical journey, he has had the honor of  having worked and remixed some of the big players on the electronic music scene such as Oliver Lieb, Damabiah, Jose Padilla, Ian O’donovan or the Swedish duo The Deer Tracks.

The live show done by Ioan Gamboa is all about breaking up his tracks to extract each one of its sounds to finally create a “live musical puzzle”.  His powerful live set, as well as his own productions, have led him to play all over the world in festivals like Sonar Festival (Barcelona) or Klubbers day (Madrid), and parties in Tokyo, Osaka, Madrid, UK or Argentina to name a few.

The album title  “vibrations” is due to one of Ioan’s all time heroes, Nikola Tesla, who once said: ‘all in the universe is energy and all forms of energy are vibrations with their own frequency, so everything that’s around you, – not only what you hear, but what touch, see, feel or even ourselves – are vibrations with an specific frequency that make everything different and unique’

Following his inspiration, Ioan discovered Cymatics, the science that studies the way that sound vibrations impact in matter and how matter reacts to an specific sound or vibration.

It turns out that some sounds can make us happy, angry or even heal us, so this is the main reason the whole album is not tune to A = 440hz, but to 444Hz instead. As this theory holds, it is much better for the listener in many ways.

Vibrations is the first album as Ioan Gamboa, and during the productions work he has experimented and pushed himself out of his confort zone to dare with different sounds and track structures, trying to spread and sinthesize his own ‘Vibrations’.
