Daytona stands for timeless tropical Balearic House, Downtempo, Synth and Disco and is the brain child of 19 year old Ruben Carrasco, Barcelona (Spain).

Despite his young age the influences go all the way back from early disco, Japanese easy listening, French chansons and classic house to contemporary electronic music. Everything goes as long as it has style, class and sophistication and with just dropping a few names ( Aeroplane, Anoraak, Benjamin Diamond, Bottin, Cornelius, Dimitri From Paris, Fantastic Plastic Machine, Grum, Jacob Korn, JBAG, Lifelike, Lindstrom, Lone, Louis La Roche, Onra, Pizzicato Five, Todd Terje, Towa Tei & Yuksek) Ruben proves he’s a man of taste – obviously a perfect match to Emerald & Doreen’s mantra for years.

Conceptual in a way, well thought through and with a keen eye for details, Daytona’s „The Palm Tree“ is like DJ Shadow doing Nu Disco – a perfect late summer album, regardless if you’re doing housework or if you dance in your favorite club, a timeless companion for a relaxing afternoon on the beach or any other occasion where you want to get away from things and just have a good time.
