20 years of creative work
The artistic name of Iris Dee Jay was born in 2003 cos my mother wanted to call me this way and not Raquel (my real name).
I started producing music in 1999. After staying a while checking the old trackers, I got involved with computer based sequencing. After working as a team with several formations, I started my solo career as a DJ and producer performing in several events and raves.
Some great achievements to date have been appearing on Spanish television, being on the cover of newspapers, making collaborations with female and male singers from all around the world (from classical musicians to trumpet players and guitarists) or, as a curious event, releasing a track in the old magazine Computer Music. Do you remember?
In 2010 I released some tracks in Armada and Black Hole Recordings. It was a great time!
Another big label offering its support was Bonzai Music.
Life getting a creative job is amazing. Whatever thing you feel and see all around is a good excuse to create something new or to express yourself.
The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless. Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Ableton Live was released for the first time in 2001 and it's a very special DAW because of its particularities. It was created to become an instrument for live performances by itself. Then, of course, it can work as a sequencer and tool for composing, recording and other functions you know.
It's a big tool for djs because of its beatmatching option and a fantastic creative machine thanks of its two views: the arrangement one and the live session one.
