The massive hype around Spanish super-talent Danny Avila has hit North American shores before he’s even dropped the very first beat on his upcoming debut Stateside tour – as mega-broadcaster SiriusXM confirm the seventeen-year-old hot shot’s new weekly ‘Ready To Jump’ radio show is to take pride of place in their mid-week prime time schedule.
“My new show (Ready To Jump) is all about energy and fun, because that’s what I’m all about,” said Avila. “It’s wild and loud and it makes you want to jump and dance. Besides that, I simply love being open to all different kinds of EDM music and I want to get as much of it as possible in my show to share my love of music and get people excited about dance music and how it makes you feel.”
“We are excited to bring one of the newest and youngest stars in electronic dance music to our national audience,” said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM. “We have been an early and committed supporter of EDM across multiple channels as well as making SiriusXM the home to some of the world’s best DJs. But we also want to expose emerging artists in the genre. Now it’s time for Danny to have his own show where he can share his energy and introduce new music to a massive audience.”
The youngster, who is dominating the Ibiza season with a staggering 35 dates across the summer, has already been courted by the legendary likes of Tiësto, David Guetta, Fedde le Grand, Martin Solveig, Afrojack and more – with Tiësto personally inviting Avila to join him as he opened up Pacha’s official 2012 proceedings.
Following an extraordinary set that sparked a huge reaction from the Pacha crowd – as well as the venue’s head honcho Danny Whittle – Avila was immediately confirmed for more dates across the summer. If you’re wondering why, then check out this official video following Danny from Bootshaus in Germany where he headlined with Hardwell, to the Balearic hotspots of Blue Marlin and Pacha, where he continues to headline alongside Tiësto.
The talented teenager is becoming the hottest new act in EDM. Due to confirm the exact details of his first US tour any day now; his debut single ‘Breaking Your Fall’ set for release after the summer; reportedly having put pen to paper with one of the four major labels; confirmed residencies at Blue Marlin Ibiza, Blue Marlin Dubai and Space Ibiza’s Café Ole; more dates alongside Tiësto and other super-headliners throughout the season at Pacha; a global tour diary rapidly filling up with the world’s most prestigious club venues and festivals; and now the seal of approval from Sirius’ top table, it goes without saying that this prodigious young DJ/producer’s profile is set to explode over the coming weeks.
