Danny Avila is a 17-year-old Spanish DJ who has been much talked about this year as much for his age as for his talent. While his boyish good looks may dazzle many a wide-eyed female, it was his DJ abilities last Saturday at Exchange that whipped the crowd into a frenzy. I was intrigued to see the whiz-kid do his thing in person because the hype around him has been so great. I can thankfully report that he pretty much lived up to expectations. Despite having a surprisingly slow start, once he caught his groove, there was no stopping him. Avila skillfully intertwined dance hits, mashups, and acapellas to create an energetic musical tapestry that the LA crowd rode all night. Among the hits he dropped were a Zedd “Clarity” mashup, Deniz Koyu’s “Tung,” SHM, Tiesto and Showtek, and tons more of Beatport’s top showers. Overall, it was a fun night and one that the young Avila will certainly remember. Now, it’s just a question as to when he’ll decide to move to LA like everyone else.
