Music has the ability to connect us all together, no matter where we are. Javier Portilla has been living this truth throughout his life, traveling around the world to inspire long-lasting connections and create magical moments, sharing meaningful messages through mindful music. Combining a powerful blend of lightness and darkness into a seamless flow, Javier transmits his distinctive and deep sound through his personal productions and diverse DJ sets.
His story began in Costa Rica, where his artistic nature was born and fueled by the beautiful surroundings and culture. At the age of 20 he moved to Madrid, then London, where he solidified his distinctive style and began to build his burgeoning musical career. After returning to San José, Costa Rica to start a residency at renowned Club Vertigo, Javier followed by finding a new home base in Barcelona, while he began traveling the world as a true nomad DJ. His adventures have taken him from Buenos Aries to Reykjavik, Goa to Singapore, Mexico City to Dubai, Sri Lanka to New York, and all across the edges of the planet. Not only has he represented his harmonic and hypnotic style at some of the most legendary festivals and clubs such as Burning Man, Envision Festival, Off Sonar, Cafe Del Mar, and La Boite, he has also played in isolated and intimate events which have created magical moments on the dance floor.
On a mission to spread the love of music on a global scale, Javier has produced and released tracks alongside artists including King Unique, Marc Marzenit, Dmitry Molosh, Audio Junkies, Justin Marchacos, Facundo Mohrr, Cid Inc, and more, and has been supported by DJs including Hernan Cattaneo, Henry Saiz, DJ Harvey, Third Son, AFFKT, Nick Warren, Maceo Plex, Sasha, and John Digweed. His own label Moonchild Records features a diverse and experimental discography, representing the depths of his musical perspective.
