DR. KUCHO! starts 2009 celebrating his 200 releases spanning a 17 YEAR career. For such special celebration he wanted to do something really extraordinary: new remixes of “Patricia never leaves the house”, the tune that opened the doors of UK market to Dr. Kucho! in 2001, and the starting point of his international career. This track is one of the best sellers at Beatport during the beginning of 2009.

Since 1994, DR. KUCHO! has brought out remixes and new work on a large number of labels (Africanism, Virgin, Sony, Defected ...). Many of them reached number one in thousands of charts worldwide, such as "Patricia Never Leaves the House" and "La Luna", for Weekend Records (1998-2002), making an essential contribution to arise Spanish house music, which burst onto the international stage from nowhere. After that, the release of "Nosferatu" and "Mac in Touch" made the DJ magazine UK crowned Dr. Kucho! as the "Indisputable King of Spanish House".

But without doubt, the track that made him known by the masses, beyond house music lovers, was "Belmondo Rulez”, becoming number 6 of best tracks of the year by DJ magazine UK, it also made him to look into another musical direction creating such fresh tracks as “Lies to yourself” and “Can’t stop playing”, which held the number one slot on Dutch radio charts for 5 weeks.

DR. KUCHO!’s music its very influenced by the soundtracks of movies, even sometimes he enjoys making house versions of some of them like in the case of "Rain (I Want a Divorce)" which is an original composition by Ryuichi Sakamoto for the film "The Last Emperor", one of the most beautiful songs ever made for such emotional film.

In that line of emotional epic music, he created "Hallelujah" which became number 1 in the pop music charts in Malta, with Shakira, Madonna and Justin Timberlake in the same list that week.

At the end of 2005 DR. KUCHO! and Gregor Salto set up a new label called GDoctor with their first track: “Macamba”, and the fully supported in The Netherlands, “Love is my game”. At Disc Doctor Records, his own record label founded in 2003, DR. KUCHO! only produces artists whose tracks have the quality he demands, including his own remixes, and providing the special touch dubbed by many as "DR. KUCHO!’s style". This is precisely one of the main reasons why he is sought-after by clubs around the world, a style that also makes its mark on his sessions.
