International DJ Scene:
This past months international DJ scene has had some nice offerings. Paul Loraine was at Red Underground last week and played a stunning set of proper Deep House. Jimpster played Macarena Beach club last weekend and absolutely killed it! Alex Kid is at that same beach club this weekend.
This month’s release Running Out EP by Wally Lopez & NDKj has been rockin’ it for me! Really loving the In Mood Mix. Proper Chicago style bangin’ house! The switch ups on this track make DJing it an absolute pleasure! Shades of Jae -sample drives the crowd nuts!
Barcelona’s biggest electronic music festival, Sonar was in June and the city went mad!! So many DJs of all levels were out and about. Playing their own label parties and taking over all of the city’s clubs. As I stated before, the best music can usually be heard outside of the festival itself - the Off Sonar Parties that really nailed it this year were the Resident Advisor secret party at Becool. We had DJ Harvey downstairs and Prins Thomas up. They both really made me wish I could be in two places at once! Absolutely one of the best parties of the year! A close second would be the boat party that was hosted by Lost My Dog and me, and Beatport. Joshua Iz, Giom, International Bitch, Steve Ferrand, Pete Dafeet, Ryan Bliss and myself dropped some seriously lovely House that day! Another event that was pretty insane was watching Ritchie Hawtin Djing at my local outdoor market. They actually set the DJ booth up in a fruit stand. Very funny. Summers in Barcelona are insane!
A couple things to keep an ear open for…
August 20th - ABCDeep Party at ABCDeep with Pablo Sanchez of Lovemonk Recordings and myself will be rockin' it there. The spot is tight, terrace with a little pool and swanky club vibe inside.
August 27th - Who’s The Boss -parties at Cabaret Berlin tend to be pretty nuts too. Be sure to check that out.
Also, I’ve got a new mix up on Barcelona’s Premier Deep House Podcast, Red Underground.
