SOHN

 

London-Vienna based songwriter and electronic musician Toph Taylor aka SOHN started making music in 2012, with just few tracks online that signed on the Aesop label and release his first album called The Wheel.

SOHN gained immediate acclaim and great reviews of the press, he was signed to 4AD, releasing several singles leading up to debut album Tremors,  in 2014.

Taylor worked on remixes and made collaborations with artists like Rhye and Lana Del Rey.

HOLA A TODO EL MUNDO

 

Taking the name from the title of a poem by Walt Whitman, Hola a todo el mundo born in the spring of 2006. Rehearsing at home, surrounded by instruments, they shaped their first compositions.

Songs of different passages, like a journey, moving forward and never going back. "A light that guides us to find the only truth of the spirit" as they explain in their lyrics, sometimes a bit prophetic, a mixture of fables and soothsayers stories.

THE SUICIDE OF WESTERN CULTURE

 

Their origins, in the outskirts of a city with an important music scene, have totally moulded both the philosophy and the sound of the duo: ethical principles close to those of radical Basque rock bands, textures and melodies that are influenced by early 90s IDM.

Their new album is the best so far. Everything

that they have been developing over the past

few years has been perfectly encapsulated in 

“Amor de Madre”, drones that turn into dreamy melodies, those grand drums that are full of

punch and a sound that is somewhere

between dark and epic.

MAÏA VIDAL

 

She defines her sound as Eclecto-Pop (a catch-all genre that she made up); an intoxicating mess of influences that include folk, electro, world music, and jazz, but that all coalesce into a shimmery love-drunk pop. On stage, she’s known for her soul-sharing, high intensity, and truly devoted performance, and while much has been written about her infectious smile... mostly, she’s barefoot.

She can be an unpredictable whirlwind of musical styles and different cultures, but with 3 albums already under belt, she’s proved to be a prolific force to be reckoned with.

 

MARC PIÑOL

 

Music journalist since 1994 and DJ since 97, Marc Piñol began playing records at Nitsa Club (Barcelona) in 1999 and he was playing there as a resident until 2013. He has been elected best DJ of the year several times in the most important Spanish music magazines.

As a DJ, he can play almost every kind of music, 
After several collaborations, Piñol is now involved with Hivern Discs, releasing his own productions and remixes. 

 

JOAN COLOMO

 

With a solo album that represents one of the most interesting and refreshing surprises of the season, and with its culture bicefalia, among Navarran roots and rootedness to the hills of El Montnegre, Colomo gives a revolutionary twist to the Spanish song with the Catalan song; with an unprecedented lyrical on it to date he faces a brutal aggressiveness content with a touching naivete formally.

JULIO BASHMORE

 

DJ, producer, and label owner from Bristol, England, Julio Bashmore predominantly made house music infused with U.K. bass. Bashmore's big break came when he had music scheduled for an EP release on Claude VonStroke's Dirtybird label in 2009. This prompted him to cancel his plans to go to university in favor of continuing to DJ and produce music.

BAYWAVES

 

Hailing from the north of Spain but now based in Madrid, Baywaves craft pop songs that melt shiny melodies and marine reverb vibes. Newcomers in the spanish scene, the quartet soon gained international attention with a couple of auto produced singles and live sets, first snippets of their personal hipnopop sound!

 

TWIN DRAMA

 

With the intention of having a good time, the band was born in the summer of 2015 .

Soon, they start to make songs inspired by summer who are living to put the soundtrack to the  Mediterranean's waves .

SORRY KATE

 

Sorry Kate is a music quartet formed in 2014.
Based in Madrid, the band has been one of the local revelations of the season by recalling the sound of the first  years of Animal Collective.

However, this has changed completely. 

Their sound now explores the pop collage as a meeting point to stylistic diversification.

 

RAN RAN RAN

 

With the leead singer Ferran Baucells, capable of being dark, and light, able to catch you on a journey through his mythologized landscape.

Ran Ran Ran, comes back with a compilation of his first recordings captured at different times and spaces featuring all sound cards and vital world of Ran Ran Ran.
