Minds On Fire


UK-born DJ/producer Iglesias is frequently referred to as the master of drum

grooves, and for good reason. Rolling, percussive and with an audacious ear for

rhythm; Joe’s sound has amassed a huge following, not just from pundits but fellow

producers, too. His accolades as a producer have only increased each year; now as

one of the Top 90 best-selling tech-house artists of all time on Beatport and having

secured the Top 35 spot for 2020, his career has only evolved and grown even

despite the temporary hiatus of dancefloors.

His studio yields have always been dropped to enormous response. With millions of

Spotify streams, multiple Beatport #1s, every track entering the Top 100 and a heady

following by many of the names who inspired him, Joe has carved his own path with

ambitious intent. Over the past several years, he has released on dominating labels

such as Moon Harbour, elrow, Sola, Toolroom, Repopulate Mars, Solid Grooves and

Of Unsound Mind, with an ongoing release schedule always primed for big-room



Joe has also built and subsequently helmed his own private studio space,

Woodland’s Studio, from April 2020. In light of the pandemic, during lockdown he

opened the doors and launched online collaborative and 1-to-1 masterclasses,

hand-made production plugins and tailored courses, attaining a global reach and

benefitting thousands of upcoming producers alongside his highly reputed mixdown,

mastering and consultative services. As well as delivering his sell-out resources and

continuing to write music while live events take a break, he is also shaping the

foundations for a forthcoming ‘Woodlands Records’ to platform his favourite talent

into the scene from the ground up.


Although he pursued mainly his recognisable offshoot of tech house throughout his

ascent, his recent releases have signalled a new evolution both as a DJ and

producer. Pivotal, show-stealing tracks like ‘Subdue’ [Sola], the Missy-Elliott sampled

‘Blah’ [Toolroom] and ‘Been A Long Time’ [Elrow] laid the groundwork for increasing

innovation and creativity. More flair, more nuances and new exploration into other

genres like Breaks and electronica has led him into releasing tracks such as

‘Where?’ [Of Unsound Mind] and putting the wheels into motion for future aliases. As

a versatile artist who takes his own knowledge and shares it freely, his reputation,

mentality and enterprise has been awarded by international bookings across Europe

and Sout America. Landmark gigs at the likes of Studio 338, Costa Rica’s Club

Vertigo, We Are FSTVL, Sankey’s Ibiza and Eden have paved the way for worldwide

tours across America and Australia, which sit patiently in the pipeline.


Now with almost 100 tracks under his belt and a myriad of other projects to

accomplish, it’s clear that whatever Joe gets his hands on, he ensures to redefine

and make his own.
