Anderblast newly established imprint Rambla Records has already had some successful releases, such as “Whale” and “Acidground“, and it’s now ready to welcome the experienced DJ and producer JP Candela, with his new banger “Mad“.

Fusing different elements from the tribal, house, and groove genres “Mad” is perfect for DJ use, but is not limited to that. The infectious bassline is able to bring to life every dancefloor, while heavy-hitting percussions raise up the energy till the earthshaking drop.

We sat down with JP Candela talking about his new record “Mad” on Rambla Records.

We also had the chance to have a brief conversation with the father of this tune, the well-known Spanish DJ & producer JP Candela.

Hello JP, thanks for sitting down with us. First up, you’ve got a new record coming out on Rambla Records. What can you tell us about it?

This is a record that made me so happy to do: coming back to my roots when I used to play techno in 90’s, and it’s my pleasure to release this track on Rambla Recs, a young label doing good for the industry, so I’m very happy!

What got you into dance music, and then into production?

It was always my dream since I was a child, I used to listen to electronic music and music bands like Depeche Mode, it’s a sound that has always been in my head to do in the future. Regarding production, I think it is the normal evolution for an artist, go from being a DJ it is something that costed a lot to achieve, so thanks to our work as DJs now we’re a reference. 

You also run an independent label. What is the work behind it?

Union is a project based on my own party which I collaborate with many international artists such as Kryder, CID, Tom Staar and new talents like Corey James, Dave Winnel, Jack Wins, Will K… and that includes a record label that I’m working to launch after this summer.

You are the resident DJ at David Guetta’s FMIF parties. How did you manage to get such an important residency, and how’s your relationship with David?

It’s an honor to work with David in Ibiza and FMIF world tour, it’s a dream come true! I visit the party as a raver 12 years ago and it really changed my life, so work as a resident DJ there now is mind-blowing! David is a super humble guy and a really good friend so it’s fantastic to work with him!

Which artists influenced you the most?

I have several influence from 90’s Techno Pop by music bands like Front 242, Nitzer Ebb or Depeche Mode. Artist like Eric Prydz or Steve Angello influenced me a lot lately.

You are an experienced DJ, who played hundreds of gigs: what is the secret for handling any crowd?

The secret is a good previous mix set-up especially about making some exclusive edits and mashups but of course, the experience of many years djing gives you the best knowledge to control the crowd.

We’d like to thank JP Candela for the time he dedicated to us. Stream or buy “Mad” via the button below.
