Santiago Ferrer, also known as Xpansul, started djing in 1993. Since then, he has played in most of the biggest clubs and festivals all over Spain, Europe and the Americas.
Xpansul’s sound as a dj is techno, his sets are a journey through electronic dance music, in which the “axis” Detroit-Chicago-Berlin-Cologne is the driver and all his other musical influences are the passengers.
Since 1998, Santi starts writing and producing music as well, getting a really good response from the crowd and critics to his first releases on labels such as Audiodrome, Options, Isoghi, Syl.Label or Soundplant, sometimes working solo and sometimes with his partner Daweed.
In 2003 Xpansul starts his own labels Discos De Lata and MSX manged along Daweed and Miguel Mendoza respectively, which has taken him to a solid position as a producer and label manager on an international level, thanks to the success achieved by his releases on this labels and other releases on Software Records, Sindicato Records and Random Dynamics.
And it was back then when Xpansul met well respected producer Alexi Delano and they started a series of collaborations, both original tracks and remixes, that have been put out on labels such as Plus 8, Truesoul, Frankie Recs Trapez and Leftroom, taking Xpansul one step ahead in his already promising career.
From then on Xpansul’s calendar becomes, more than busy, hectic, showing his dj skills all over the world and receiving a great, warm welcome everywhere he’s gone. All this, added to his releases on Ovum, Soma Quality Recordings, Ad Ltd., Minuendo, or his own Discos De Lata confirmed Xpansul as a true solid value in the electronic dance music scene worldwide.
2009 is the year where new things have to happen, so Xpansul opens new label, True Type Tracks, along Daweed, and starts performing live sets in order to open himself to a new path of musical expression, a way to keep growing as a musician, to establish himself as an artist that is here to stay.
