DJ/Producer David Tort is one of the most influential Spanish artists in the global electronic music scene. His success is the product of both his distinctive studio work and his in-demand DJ sets all around the world. Both sides have made him a household name in modern club culture.
David has been brewing his studio sound for over fifteen years cultivating a unique and diverse musical personality understood both by clubbers and industry alike. His discography includes remixes for Tiësto & Nelly Furtado, David Guetta, Bob Sinclar and Gui Boratto, in addition to original productions like “Dizzy”, “Raveline”, “Lost In Acid”, “Jack It Up”, “One Look” or the cover of “Chase The Sun” with Norman Doray which reached #2 on Beatport’s main chart for three weeks in a row. In 2014 he continued the pace, with original productions dropping on CR2, Size, ZeroThree, and Spinnin including collaborations with Roland Clark, Nick Marsh, and Abel Ramos. “Getting Heavy” with Abel Ramos has logged over three million views on YouTube since release and reached #8 on the Beatport Progressive House chart. In 2015 David released music with a who’s who of dance labels including Doorn, Musical Freedom, X, Flamingo, and Zerothree, in addition to launching his own label, HoTL Records. The label’s third release revisited Tort’s acid roots with a re-release of his classic “Lost In Acid”, featuring remixes from Abel Ramos, Henrix & Digital LAB, DJ Mara & Sebastian Ledher, and DJ Diass. 2016 showed no signs of slowing down, with an early single release with Robbie Rivera, several HoTL releases, and work with house legend Marshall Jefferson. David’s HoTL Mix of Kaal’s “EBL” along with Markem has made waves since release, seeing widespread support from Sander Van Doorn, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Promise Land, and Fedde Le Grand who took the track to main stage at Tomorrowland. Without having to follow any fashion or trend, David’s productions are always undeniably relevant.
As important as his studio work are his live gigs. From his residency at his second home, Space Miami, to Summerland, Tomorrowland, and Summerburst festivals, David’s marathon sessions never disappoint. He has played parties for DJ megastars Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, and Tiesto, and is the only Spanish DJ to perform at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills. He’s also a staple performer at the annual Winter Music Conference in Miami, where in 2014 his Closeout Blowout show at world renowned Nikki Beach featured a packed lineup including Max Vangeli, Feenixpawl, and Norman Doray. Bringing his signature sound to the live arena, David Tort sets are always packed with driving beats, powerful basslines, and destructive drops. On the back of a busy 2015, in 2016 Tort reaffirmed his position as one of dance music’s most respected figures. Amidst constant club appearances around the world from India to Brazil, Tort has made appearances at Sweden’s Bravalla Festival, Aruba’s Love Festival and launched his label parties around the world with HoTL Miami, Tampa, Barcelona, Amsterdam, and Cartagena.
