    NIÑA COYOTE ETA CHICO TORNADO

    nina_coyote_eta_chico_tornado

los_hermanos_cubero
LOS HERMANOS CUBERO
What would happen if we mixed Castilian jotas and Castilian seguidillas with the country music of the American south? Starting from the oral tradition of La Alcarria, and a steady gaze on Kentucky bluegrass, the Guadalajara duo leads the latest revolution in roots music. #folk play
vera_fauna
VERA FAUNA
Scandalously young, and ridiculously infectious. Imagine that the singer of Los Nikis had thrown out his Ramones albums to dedicated himself to collecting Black Lips and Boogarins bootlegs. Psychedelia sung in Andalusian exists, and here we have proof. #pop play
la_big_rabia
LA BIG RABIA (CHILE)
With a 21-year age difference and a manifest devotion to the expressionism of Nick Cave, Tom Waits, The Cramps and The Saicos, the duo La BIG Rabia pursue their love of heart-breaking stories by forming a powerful blues-rock duo, taking it to the limit with infectious boleros. #rock play
the_magic_mor
THE MAGIC MOR
From their van flow the sounds of Arcade Fire, Pond and MGMT, an accumulation of references sifted through the masterful ears of seasoned and consistent musicians playing a sort of space-pop produced with the meticulous care of a goldsmith. Flaming Lips and a serving of grilled cuttlefish. #pop #psychedelia play
antropoloops
ANTROPOLOOPS
The Chileans are used to manifesting their complicity with the most volatile and sensual sounds of sad-core and downtempo. A narcotic and post-modern mix, somewhere between the jungle pop of Julieta Venegas and Aterciopelados dreaming about being Massive Attack. #pop play
zines
ZINES
Cráneo Prisma, 50% of Holögrama, undertakes a solo project mixing the lo-fi pop of Magnetic Fields, in the style of the most aqueous My Bloody Valentine, the abstract psychedelia of Peter Kember, and sensual passages close to the ghostly dubstep of Eyedress. #psychedelia play
juno_&_darrell
JUNO & DARRELL
An authentic word jumble with which we could create labels as different but related to each other as Soul, Afrobeat, Rocksteady, Jazz or Hip-hop. A stylistic hodgepodge that leaves no one indifferent when they get going on stage. Rhythmic fury and social criticism. #afrobeat play
the_agapornis
THE AGAPORNIS
No less than nine experienced musicians form the line-up of this band from Cádiz, with a penchant for waist-shaking soul and the most energetic deep funk. A steamroller charged with black overtones and a rhythmic naughtiness owing a debt to the great classics of the genre. #funk play
raul_rodriguez
RAÚL RODRÍGUEZ
As if following a reflexive process through music, Raúl Rodríguez is capable of covering the route from Andalusia to the other Atlantic coast, reinventing styles of imaginary folklore, reconstructing indiano fandango or pre-flamenco caña sounds. #folk play
gastmans&morgan
GASTMANS & MORGAN
The Spanish/Belgian Alvaro Gastmans abandons his punk facet and delves, along with the American Drew Morgan, into the sphere of film pop. An audio-visual project mixing Man Ray with The Dirty Three, and Gary Numan with the movies of Nicolas Winding Refn. #Synth-pop play
furia_trinidad
FURIA TRINIDAD
The Cádiz quartet embodies a pioneering, scruffy subgenre within the national indie scene. Something like if The Pixies decided to compose a soundtrack for Sergio Leone under the supervision of John Covertino. The Searchers, bathed in brine. #rock play
crudo_pimento
CRUDO PIMENTO
They are some strange birds, and flaunt it right where convention prevails. Their influences range from Robert Johnson, to Valderrama, Brujería, Antonio Molina, Carcass and Héctor Lavoe. Blues, punk, flamenco, cumbia, grind-core, copla, death-metal? Does it really matter? #rock play
fuckaine
FUCKAINE
All the rage? They are already. Their formula: a hedonistic, oh-so-cool tropical post-punk jumble pestering (or delighting) like a finger in the ass. You'll find traces of Holy Fuck, Flaming Lips, Animal Collective, DEVO and even some 80s videogames. #pop play
los_ataudes
LOS ATAÚDES
Roughness is what defines the new project headed up by Carlos Jimena (Guadalupe Plata) and Javi Chotacabra (Los Terrys), a toxic mix of psych-blues, horror punk and long-sideburn garage, influenced by everything from The Cramps to The Morlocks, Love & Rockets, BRMC and Spacemen 3. #rock play
perro_mojado
PERRO MOJADO
Beyond punk, the Granada natives sound dark, quaggy and drenched in that shiny varnish characteristic of bands like The Gories, Mudhoney and The Scientists. A sort of "trash & boogie" vibe combining fierce licks and speed-stained noses. #rock play
terry_vs_tori
TERRY VS. TORI
With just two EPs released, the Sevillians exhibit a peculiar sensitivity when it comes to pulling off addictive tunes falling somewhere between The Smiths, Deerhunter and the much yearned-for The Sundays. Torrents of sun cream and tonnes of reverb, by a group of shoegaze aesthetes. #pop play
pedro_ladroga
PEDRO LADROGA
His wide-ranging production includes everything from post-millennial consumerism to scores for video games, the influence of Memphis trap, and hefty doses of whimsicality, all seasoned with a concoction comprised of environmental beats, pop, nods to vaporwave and witch house obscurantism. #trap play
basanta
BASANTA
Emphatic, epic and thoroughly infused with the atavistic sentiments of legendary bands like Jefferson Airplane, the quintet from Vigo serve up a cocktail of vigorous alternative, psychedelic and occultist rock, fully indebted to the legacy of The Soundtrack of Our Lives. #Rock play
ms_nina
MS NINA
Strong, cheeky, and sexy, she is a genuine princess of those outlying districts. The girl who erased "ola k ase" (Hi, what are you up to?) from the map with her "claro que sí guapi" (Of course, cutie), the definitive catchphrase of the startup Chicfy. A kitschy diva carrying an irresistible mix of cumbia and reggaeton 2.0 under her arm. #reggaeton play
escorpio
ESCORPIO
The Mallorcans recover the hallmarks of 80s after-punk (Décima Víctima, Golpes Bajos, Parálisis Permanente), composing dark hits that would shock contemporaries like Savages or Protomartyr. Their sound: a fibrous wall of nerves and muscle. #postpunk play
alien_tango
ALIEN TANGO
A vibrant confluence of a schizoid pop sensibility and sticky, hallucinogenic reminiscences. Something like a bacchanal of gum drops, champagne and MDMA at the home of Wayne Coyne, with the guys from Ween as guests and the Beck of "Midnite Vultures" in charge of the barbecue. #pop play
el_lado_oscuro_de_la_broca
EL LADO OSCURO DE LA BROCA
From Zamora comes this rugged group, indebted to the most explosive shoegaze, boasting an incendiary collection of earth-air songs packing the sonic fierceness of noise. Worthy heirs to Disco Las Palmeras! and Triángulo de amor bizarro. #noiserock play
the_zephyr_bones
THE ZEPHYR BONES
These Chileans settled in Barcelona manage to balance their "beach wave" militancy, letting their hair down with vaporous arrangements and subtle winks at the languid pop of Beach Fossils, Deerhunter or the early Tame Impala, or even the "motorik" of Stereolab. #psychedelia play
copycats
COPYCATS
The Granada band turns out a collection of potent proto punk pills mixing the best ingredients of Johnny Thunders, Wipers, Deadboys, Gun Club, Television and Only Ones, centrifuging teen angst with a masterful blend of vitamin-packed New Wave and generational rage. #punk play
mueveloreina
MUEVELOREINA
The Catalonians serve up a blend of beats including everything from the rave electronic sounds of Die Antwoord, the bubble gum pop of Modjo, the most caustic M.I.A., Fatal Bazouka style rap, and nods to aesthetes of contemporary electro cumbia like Dengue Dengue Dengue. A duo with a cult following. #antitrap play
pamplemousse
PAMPLEMOUSSE (FRANCE)
The young Reunion Island trio draws on labels like Touch & Go or Amphetamine Reptile Records, churning out a mixture of blues-punk, post-hardcore and sludge-metal inspired by bands such as Helmet, Jesus Lizard, Unsane, Fugazi and Today Is The Day. #punk play
nathy_peluso
NATHY PELUSO
Named "Best New Artist 2016" by Tentaciones magazine, this Argentine based in Madrid offers a narcotic twist on dub, soul and the most sensual kind of hip-hop, projecting the same lyrical universe as the great heroes from foggy Bristol. #hip-hop play
elphomega
ELPHOMEGA
The artist from Málaga is an atypical rapper, representative of nerd hip-hop, capable of telling his alter ego off to the rhythm of electro pop, setting up a tandem with the guitarist from Standstill, organising a graffiti exhibition, or publishing a book of noir stories. Verses and Science Fiction. #rap play
svper
SVPER
The world of Svper, formerly Pegasvs, is a delicious poisoned, synthetic and crackling caramel. Lab kraut-pop; hazy, abstract and absolutely indebted to the motorik beat of Can, Kraftwerk and the most pop Hawkwind. Dream-pop, big shocks and heaps of MS-20. #pop play
bifannah
BIFANNAH
Spanning London and Galicia, Bifannah stands as a Spanish answer to Anglo-Saxon New Wave psych. Faithful to the dictates of fuzz and the hypnosis of Farfisa, the quartet ably mixes psychic pop, tropicalisms, magical realism and echoes of the American West Coast. #psychedelia play
esteban_y_manuel
ESTEBAN Y MANUEL
What are some guys that play cumbia and merengue doing at a festival with Swans and Princess Nokia? Well, projecting genres that, in principle, are far removed from contemporary music, towards a new imaginative sphere in which kitsch becomes a reinvention of tropical minimalism. #latin play
palida
PÁLIDA
Vigo's Nelo, known on Galicia's post-hardcore scene for his work in bands like Durarará!!, has been heading up this solo project based on an obsession with rhythmic suggestion. Flitting from ambient to techno, from minimal to micro house. #dance play
lydia_damunt
LIDIA DAMUNT
After an underground past leading the country-punk marvel called Hello Cuca, Murcia's Lidia Damunt has for years stood as a fiercely independent artist who refuses to make concessions. A bittersweet storyteller, the last aesthete of lo-fi, western-tradition folk. #folk play
isasa
ISASA
The work of what was once A Room With a View constitutes a kind of experimental and cinematic folk music based on the development of primitive atavistic passages akin to the John Fahey school. A contemplative battle for the instrumental side of American music. #folk play
murciano_total
MURCIANO TOTAL
José Lozano (Automatics) and Elena Molina have spent years engaged in a kind of quest rummaging between the most exuberant traditional Murcian music and the retro synthetic futurism of 80s synth pop. When Franco Battiato enlisted in the ranks of Blue and Black ... #pop play
druso
DRUSO
The secret of this Galician genius: superlative arpeggios, lysergic drippings, riffs drawing from the trough that nourished Gram Parsons, The Byrds and The Kinks, a pungent scent of George Harrison, and big doses of youthful non-conformism, a la Modern Lovers. #Psychedelia play
escuelas_pias
ESCUELAS PÍAS
Davis Rodríguez and Cristian Bohórquez (Sundae, Blacanova) boast a solid background on the Andalusian shoegaze scene. The duo offers up a collection of songs midway between the vaporous post-rock of Disco Inferno and the most intimate Trembling Blue Stars. #pop play
the_wheels
THE WHEELS
A bright polaroid with Norman Blake smoking marijuana on the back of a Volkswagen Beetle and Gaz Coombes brushing his sideburns while listening to T-Rex. The Mallorcan Beatles are no longer any fledgling upstarts. They have won over everyone, and they know it. #psychedelia play
acid_tongue
ACID TONGUE
Guy Keltner's (Fox and The Law) new project proposes a mixture of acid rock, bright garage and adulterated psychedelia consonant with the school of bands made up of The Growlers, Strange Boys, The War on Drugs, Black Lips and Mac DeMarco. #psychedelia play
go_cactus
GO CACTUS
They exhibit the hallmarks of the penultimate version of lo-fi garage-punk, pioneered in our country by The Parrots, Los Wallas and Los Vinagres. Their academicism, however, distances them from the immediacy of the hype comparing them to the legendary The Nomads, or the Miracle Workers. #garage play
solo_astra
SOLO ASTRA
A slick fretboard fusing tropicalisms, psychedelic vibrations, Motown echoes, hip-hop structures and melodies that sought inspiration in Boogarins, Pink Floyd, Tame Impala, Os Mutantes and The Pretty Things. Constantly transmuting modular pop. #psychedelia play
fabian_brusk_jahn
FABIAN BRUSK  JAHN
The Swedish band offers us tunes reminiscent of early Tim Buckley, or the Tom Waits of "Rain Dogs", a fusion of traditional black music, New Orleans jazz, and experimental folk a la Nick Drake, which places the former hard-rocker on a par with an Elliott Smith with a European accent. #folk play
texxcoco
TEXXCOCO
A blend of noise and colour, generational angst, bicycle skids, litres of beer and clamouring for a party. The band from the Canary Islands is the new teenage proto garage-punk sensation, a typhoon of unleashed energy reminiscent of The Breeders or The Rezillos. #punk play
camellos
CAMELLOS
Mischievous chroniclers of the everyday that can evoke the irreverent years of La Movida, and then the distant, tumbledown punk-pop of Patrullero Mancuso. A fresh and cheeky take on the spirit of '77, conveyed to the years of Tinder and Instagram. #punk play
noia
NOIA
Gisela Fulla-Silvestre produces songs inspired by dancehall, digital R&B and even tropical music. Noia is an electronic experimentation project inspired by artists as diverse as Kate Bush, Zola Jesus, Tori Amos and the Björk of “Biophilia”. #electronic play
all_la_glory
ALL LA GLORY
They tell urban stories charged with brilliant melodies, immortal choruses, and guitars like sledgehammers. A combination of power rock and new wave touches inspired by the legacy of Blondie, Johnny Thunders, Pretenders, The Bangles, Only Ones and Fleetwood Mac. #rock play
bear_the_storyteller
BEAR, THE STORYTELLER
Generators of imaginary scores, the Córdoba band sweeps us back to the old math rock scene and its masters. Prodigy students of Explosion In The Sky, their expansive and cinematic post-rock draws from classics like Mogwai or Godspeed You! Black Emperor. #experimental play
salto
SALTO
A 10 in Brilliance, an 11 in Honesty. The music of this Madrilenian nomad is a journey to the past in the caboose of the finest deep-rooted pop-rock. George Harrison, Dylan, The Byrds, Beach Boys, or "as if Nils Logfren made a record with the Teenage Fanclub." #folk play
ramos_dual
rAM0S Dual
Ya el nombre nos da varias pistas: rAM0S Dual, escrito en una sucesión de mayúsculas y minúsculas, como una montaña rusa a pleno rendimiento y ese cero colocado estratégicamente cual el ojo de huracán a punto de absorverlo todo con la fuerza de mil diablos. Solvente compositor y baterista de armas tomar (búsquenlo en formaciones del calibre de La Inesperada Sol Dual, Beggar's House o Malparaíso, esta última una formación considerada hoy todo un clásico en la escena andaluza de los 90 y que en aquellos años se codeó en directo con nombres hoy tan respetados como Los Planetas o Lagartija Nick) el cordobés rAM0S Dual irrumpe de nuevo en la escena independiente con un increíble trabajo en solitario de techno punk lo-fi que ya abrió una brecha en la oferta festivalera sureña durante la primera edición del portuense Monkey Weekend, hermano pequeño veraniego de este Monkey Week. Dando rienda suelta a su pasión por los beats afilados y los ritmos teutones, rAM0S acaba de lanzar un primer trabajo en solitario bautizado -no había mejor forma- como ‘DrumSolo’, un álbum que seducirá a los amantes de los sonidos oscuros y herrumbrosos de bandas industriales como Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb, Front Line Assembly, Ministry o Atari Teenage Riot. Su directo es un ataque nuclear a pequeña escala, un chasquido de cables y alambres de espino rescatado de las trincheras de la EBM y el synth-punk de los ochenta. Como Alec Empire de duelo con el mismísimo Trent Reznor, rAM0S recupera el envite de un género que paradójicamente no ha terminado de cuajar nunca en el entorno de la música independiente nacional. #INDUSTRIAL, #TECHNO PUNK play
os_amigos_dos_musicos
OS AMIGOS DOS MÚSICOS
The Orense-based band comes on like a rainy and evocative version of the legendary Big Star, revealing a passion for folk and psychedelia and melding the music of classic Galician singer-songwriters with the American sounds of Uncle Tupelo or the vaporous pop of Bon Iver. #folk play
willis_drummond
WILLIS DRUMMOND
The band from Iparralde jump from the tension of metal-influenced hardcore (Helmet, Fugazi), to sludge (Flipper), to North American punk (Dead Boys) and the most twisted sounds of boggy Australia (The Drones). Wild, grubby and primeval rock. #rock play
ramirez_exposure
RAMÍREZ EXPOSURE
A virtuoso of California folk capable of tracing a line between The Byrds, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers. His last album featured Richard Lloyd (Television) and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies) as contributors. A worthy heir to Alex Chilton. #popA virtuoso of California folk capable of tracing a line between The Byrds, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers.

tooth
TOOTH
A fierce new take on the “noise” and American post-hardcore of the late 80s. Following the shock pedagogy of Bitch Magnet, Helmet, Jawbox, Big Black, Unsane and Nomeansno. Pure Bidasoa essence, along the lines of Sacco, Dut and Lisabö. #hardcore play
the_tractor
THE TRACTOR
Active since 2006, like a carcinoma in a constant process of metastasis, scratching at the walls of the rusty barrel containing industrial rock, Goth-rock and electro punk. As if Brian Molko allowed himself to undergo a bukake by the members of Ministry. #industrial play
the_teutonics
THE TEUTONICS (USA)
The Californians follow in the footsteps of groups like The Mummies, Trashwomen and Phantom Surfers. Devotees of budget rock (a kind of lowly, festive, punk garage sound arising in San Francisco) they would be the perfect complement to a Viking pilgrimage. #garage play
gold_lake
GOLDLAKE
Carlos and Lua moved to Brooklyn after a tour that ended in New York. Already formed as a trio, Gold Lake has begun to really make waves with its elegant and earthy pop, a worthy heir to bands like Midlake, Beach House, Red House Painters and Fleet Foxes. #pop play
syberia
SYBERIA
These Catalonians' music is a suggestive mixture of post-metal, shoegaze and instrumental emo-core, a kind of fierce ambient in the style of the well-known Toundra. A collection of imaginative scores crafted with metal and flames from the Mines of Moria. #postmetal play

An amalgam of synthetic textures and flashes of lo-fi electronic, easily imaginable in such disparate venues as an art gallery, an impromptu rave, or a fashion show. A multichannel experience, an oppressive and fluctuating sound, and a pliant nature. #electronics play
nuria_graham
NÚRIA GRAHAM
From a promising voice of folk to the incontestable reality of rugged space-rock with psychedelic roots. The Catalonian has quickly positioned herself as a sophisticated and capable composer, midway between PJ Harvey and Flying Saucer Attack. #dream-folk play
terbutalina
TERBUTALINA
Their music is garage-like mischief, for which a term has been coined: gastro punk, a mixture of drunken indigestion and generational rage, with tinges of The Sonics, Oblivians, The Cramps, The Mummies and Siniestro Total. Like a perpetual bachelor party. #punk play
the_guru_guru
THE GURU GURU (BELGIUM)
Giving voice to the same feelings of bitterness as Sonic Youth or The Jesus Lizard, The Guru Guru revel in the mud of math-rock, applying doses of acerbity to a formula linking them to bands like Metz and Melt-Banana. # noise-rock play
amanitas
AMANITAS
The Chileans are used to manifesting their complicity with the most volatile and sensual sounds of sad-core and downtempo. A narcotic and post-modern mix, somewhere between the jungle pop of Julieta Venegas and Aterciopelados dreaming about being Massive Attack. #pop play
shinova
SHINOVA
After almost a decade of music and four albums released, Shinova has been a smash hit at the last editions of festivals like Sonorama, Arenal Sound and Low Festival. They mix the indie mainstream of Izal and Vetusta Morla with the pop alienation of Elefantes and Depedro. #pop play
red_beard
RED BEARD
Their songs are long-distance trains packed with personal experiences, still-side tunes that jibe with the bluegrass motif, coming on as strong as a thoroughbred stallion. Echoes of Ray LaMontagne, The White Buffalo and the southern rock of Blackberry Smoke. #americana play
lowlight
LOWLIGHT
In addition to sessions in the booths of our country's most important clubs, and accompanying John Grvy on stage, the torrent of remixes and productions by this tandem of producers features an elegant mix of dubstep, R&B, soul, funk, hip-hop and trap. #r&b play
zulu-zulu
ZULU ZULU
The Mallorca-based band offers a collection of primitive polaroids spiced with the relentless polyrhythmic sounds typical of traditional sub-Saharan music. A transcultural concoction with psychedelic touches and a markedly ceremonial character. World Music for pro indies. #worldbeat play
marem_ladson
MAREM LADSON
The Galician-American demonstrates her love for the trembling and emotional folk-pop of the masters Stephin Merritt and Damien Jurado. With a vocal cadence evoking the Chan Marshall of 'The Greatest', Marem appears as a worthy successor to Russian Red. #pop play
albert_cavalier
ALBERT CAVALLIER
The band from San Sebastían spent years holed up in the Dabadaba discovering bands from Burger Records and honing a robust sound influenced by the proto punk of Television and The Velvet Underground. The result: a cross between Meatbodies, The Ponys and Parquet Courts. #garage play
bsn_posse
BSN POSSE
Málaga's Sergio Ruiz (Stay Puft) and Enrique Gervilla (Broken Lip) formed the duo BSN Posse and, along the way, the collective label Iberian Juke, to promote footwork  in Spain, taking on styles such as dubstep, future garage and bass music. #electronic
faux
FAVX
A crude locomotive of classic heritage, oozing noise blues as early Sebodah and Dinosaur Jr. understood the genre. A stroll through the college rock of the 90s and the primitive sludge-punk that served as a precursor to the Seattle scene. Don't miss them. #rock play
hi_corea!
HI, COREA!
They stare at and draw inspiration from the same light that illuminated Syd Barret, The Free Design and The Beta Band. New psychedelia designed with same dedication to contemporaneity with which Tame Impala, Woods and Deerhunter brought back the passion for strobe lights. #pop #rock #psychedelia
swans
SWANS
From the extreme and brutal minimalism of their beginnings, to the solemn maturity of the experimental “noise” of recent times, Michael Gira has decided to bring Swans to an end with a series of "Final Performances", this Monkey Week concert being one of them. Legendary. #Rock play
princess_nokia
PRINCESS NOKIA (USA)
She does whatever the hell occurs to her, however the hell she wants to. A typical Puerto Rican girl from New York, a feminist, queer, and boasting a title as the latest generation's Queen of Trap. Her feisty attitude combines with a mix of blues, trip-hop, R&B and alternative rap.  #Hip-Hop play
rocio_marquez
ROCÍO MÁRQUEZ
An contemporary flamenco iconoclast capable of sharing top billing with Rockdelux along with Chris Cornell, or paying homage to the legacy of Marchena, with all the power of a gritty gypsy queen with style. Another twist on a classic genre. Fresher, more courageous. #flamenco play
brigitte_laverne
BRIGITTE LAVERNE
Behind the alias Brigitte Laverne lurks an enthusiast of synth-pop and the gummy productions of the 80s. Echoes of the productions of the iconoclastic Cliff Martinez, the kraut-pop of Jane Weaver, and old records by Visage, Human League and OMD. #electronic #pop play
balcanes
BALCANES
The Asturians have one foot in the abstract experimental noise of Whitehouse, and another in the raw barking of bands like Melvins, Earth, Unsane or Today is The Day. A paragon of harsh art-punk, squeaks and drones pushed to the verge of paroxysm. #experimental#rock play  
baby_dee
BABY DEE (EE.UU)
Artist and transgender performer Baby Dee boasts a list of friends and collaborators of the calibre of Will Oldham, Matt Sweeney, David Tibet and Antony and The Johnsons. Chamber pop and emotional cabaret in a decadent mix of Marc Almond and the Lou Reed of "Berlin". #pop play
bala
BALA
Hailing from Galicia, Ángela and Violeta's approach is based on flexing and turning their amps up to 11. Bala serves up a furious attack, right down the barrel, placing a twist on noise-punk (Babes in Toyland), stoner rock (Kyuss) and 90s metal. #rock play
bronquio
BRONQUIO
His work as a producer lured the young punk Santiago Gonzalo (AKA Bronquio) into the world of electronic music. His music is to trap what Prodigy was to drum'n'bass. An electronic music revolutionary, who sees the genre as weapon. #electronic #trap play
kaixo
KAIXO
From halfway between Vigo and Porto, Kaixo is considered one of the kings of trap, viewing the genre not only as a generational portrait, but also a disruptive tool. Their productions take street electronic to the next level. #electronic #trap play
one_path
ONE PATH
"If you play any of my songs you'll probably hear something similar to what the son of Drake and James Blake would produce after finding the Tao Te Ching on a shelf." An devotee of auto-tune, R&B aesthete and regenerator of alternative dubstep. #R&B #trap play
MEDALLA_02
MEDALLA
The Catalonians unleash an arsenal of tricks drawn from heavy 80s tunes, AOR and the most bombastic kraut-rock. Imagine a cross between Holy Fuck, Daft Punk and Electric Six, or if Queen had gorged themselves on speed in the middle of Sònar de Noche. #rock play
kelly_kapowsky
KELLY KAPØWSKY
Their treacherous nocturnal art-pop falls somewhere between the nostalgia of intimate shoegaze and the classic indie of Pale Saints. From Barcelona, and borrowing their name from the series "Saved by the Bell", the female quintet positions itself somewhere between Warpaint and Cranberries. #rock play
la_plata
LA PLATA
From Valencia, members of Acapvlco, Carmonas and Teletext, turning out New Wave-like pop injected with luminous, unexpected twists, with a debt to the most sparkling The Smiths or New Orderc. Their hit “Un Atasco” is already a classic of the country's hyper-vitimanised New Wave. #pop play
rrucculla
RRUCCULLA
When Bilbao's Izaskun transforms into RRUCCULLA, she doesn’t hesitate to dive into the pool of IDM and experimental pop, with a mastery worth of legends of post-rock, footwork and dubstep. Reminiscent of Tortoise, Aphex Twin, Four Tet, Battles or Flying Lotus. #electronic play
vulk
VULK
Martial, powerful and relentless, the Bilbao powerhouse draws from the likes of Joy Division, Wire, Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, Te Ex and even the hardiest Bowie. A powerful, dark and sharp sound, paving the way for a new batch of Basque bands that are coming on strong. #ROCK play
los_voluble
LOS VOLUBLE
The Jiménez brothers return with "No Media Detected", a new show for which the duo has used their own sound and audio-visual archives, while starting out from the collective imagination generated by the media. 20 years of samples and field recordings. #electronics play
fasenuova
FASENUOVA
The world of Ernesto Avelino and Roberto Lobo, a kind of Asturian-style Suicide, is rife with bare wires, rust and scientific literature. From industrial after-punk to urbanite synth-pop. Esplendor Geométrico and Cabaret Voltaire as the backdrop. #experimental play
luma
LUMA
The San Sebastián duo heads up a new Basque rock revolution, heirs to the teen spirit that flooded the streets of Seattle in the 90s. Nods to the 70s, smothered in dark, grunge nihilism. Echoes of Dinosaur Jr. and Alice in Chains. #rock play
smokers_die_young2
SMOKERS DIE YOUNG
Another twist on the Seattle school, this time with more substance than style. A versatile trio that sets its sights on transcending the derivative, and whose influences go from the predictable (Royal Blood) to the more mannered (Green River). Like J Mascis leading Biffy Clyro.  #rock play
mohama_saz
MOHAMA SAZ
A project that, based on the psychedelic rock of Anatolia, seeks to meld Eastern sounds with the improvised sensation of free American jazz. A diaphanous blend of hypnotic Tuareg music, a Turkish labyrinth, Arabian colour and flamenco inspiration. #psychedelia play
iseo_&_dodosound
ISEO & DODOSOUND
Drawing from genres like reggae, dub and dancehall, the Pamplona duet constitutes a kind of drum machine producing different layers of smoke, perfectly interwoven with a narcotic minimalism, seasoned with catchy, signature wind arrangements. #dub play
cabezafuego
CABEZAFUEGO
One of the most imaginative and irreverent songwriters the independent scene here has spawned. A restless multi-instrumentalist, showman and bard of pataphysics psych-pop, Cabezafuego presents "Somos droga," his new act of creative madness, in comic/album format. #rock play
cala_vento
CALA VENTO
Aleix and Joan, two friends from Figueres and Torroella who share an admiration for bands based on the guitar and drum formula, make up one of the most intense duos in power rock today. A whirlwind on stage, on a level with foreign bands like No Age or Japandroids. #rock play
quentin_gas
QUENTIN GAS Y LOS ZÍNGAROS
The missing link between Oasis and Camarón? Closer to José Domingo than Smash, the frontman of Los News offers up an innovative twist on rock with an Andalusian accent. A crossover between popular music, Teuton kraut and the catchy sounds of the Summer of Love. #rock play
yawners
YAWNERS
The power duo Yawners owes their sound to a long hours listening to albums licensed by Sub-Pop. In the songs on its impetuous "Dizzy" one can appreciate the influences of the likes of The Fastbacks, The Vaselines, Bikini Kill, Vivian Girls and the primitive Lemonheads. #rock play
mauskovic-dance-band
THE MAUSKOVIC DANCE BAND (THE NETHERLANDS)
Defined as a mutant mixture between Femi Kuti and the no-wave of ESG and Liquid Liquid. Caribbean afro disco? Psychedelic post cumbia? 21st-century funk punk? If David Byrne had come across the Chk-Chk-Chk when he was active in the Talking Heads, they would’ve sounded like this. #afrobeat play
el_ultimo_vecino
EL ÚLTIMO VECINO
Gerard Alegre Dòria does not mask his vices: a passion for synth-pop, a softness for 80s Nelly hairspray, and some retro futuristic productions influenced by The Smiths, A-Ha, Golpes Bajos, Orange Juice and Ultravox. Our country's The Drums? No, they're much more than that. #pop play
robbie&seth
ROBBIE & SETH
As "if Abbott and Costello slipped into Purple Weekend." They formed, decades ago, one of the best power pop bands of all time: The Mockers. Now they return to a duo format, ready to unleash their arsenal of all-time classics. #powerpop
ramona
RAMONA
A three-band, lo-fi party where the rules of garage and the most primitive variants of punk rock are extended like a bad check towards a kind of festive and minimalist bubble-rock, high advisable during times of lowering serotonin levels. #garage play
imtima
IMTIMA
In just four years together, the trio that form Jonay (guitar and vocals), Sabri (synthesizers and keyboard) and Gastón (drums) have carved a name in the Canarian scene from his native Arrecife. Perhaps as much sand as they surrounds has imbued them with the spirit of their admired QOTSA and Kyuss, there is a storm coming! #rock
ramos_dual
rAMOS DUAL
An able composer and bold drummer, Córdoba's rAM0S Dual serves up a lo-fi techno-punk tempest that will seduce lovers of the dark and rusty sounds of bands like Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb, Ministry or Atari Teenage Riot. #industrial
luis_hill
LUIS HILL

Luis Hill nació en Cádiz en 1975 y desde muy temprana edad se sintió atraído por la música y por todo aparato electrónico que pudiese reproducirla. En sus comienzos como deejay se unió a la familia de Ohju Club donde tuvo la oportunidad de compartir cabina con artistas ya consagrados en la escena electrónica Andaluza y realizar numerosos warm-up a artistas internacionales de la talla de Solomun, Locodice, Booka Shade, Dubfire, James Holden, Anja Schneider, etc... Esto le sirvió para poder mejorar su técnica y depurar su oído musical, confirmando una vez más sus excelentes habilidades como deejay. No es una gran sorpresa que la reputación de Luis Hill como deejay creciera rápidamente en los siguientes años, llevándolo a los clubes y lugares más underground y siendo considerado uno de los más innovadores artistas de la escena electrónica Andaluza. El Sr. Hill es el tipo de deejay que le gusta innovar y refinar siempre su variada paleta de sonidos sorprendiendo a la audiencia de la mejor manera. En su selección musical siempre tiene cabida la electrónica mas vanguardista. Sus sabrosos Dj-sets tienen un toque personal distintivo donde entrega una mezcla perfectamente equilibrada de ritmos maravillosos, bajos calientes y emociones musicales que te harán adicto

drum_invaders
DRUM INVADERS
Dubstep, drum and bass, drumstep, jump-up, breakbeat, jungle ... The series of styles that this Andalusian band plays is as extensive as their history of live shows. A trio (drums, DJ and vocalist) make up a project designed exclusively for live performances. #drumnbass play
nina_coyote_eta_chico_tornado
NIÑA COYOTE ETA CHICO TORNADO
A unit of sonic commotion. Their volcanic sound, a hard-rock earthquake close to the desert-inspired imagination of Kyuss and Black Sabbath, is akin to the most muscular sounds of the 70s. Like Sex Museum pumped up on steroids. Hard rock, without any fissures. #Stoner play
