BARCELONA'S LINE UP
Making his debut into the world in 2010 under the anonymous moniker of Krystal Klear, Dublin native Dec Lennon has made a steady rise to become one of the freshest new faces in music that both has the chops to destroy underground dance floors with his deep crate of records, or spin out polished productions in the studio.
Bookings on the the main stage at top tier events like SONAR and Electric Picnic started to become common practice as Krystal Klear’s started to tour the world and play some of the best clubs in the word from Moscow to Singapore, some highlights being Space in Ibiza and Panorama Bar in Berlin.
Extremely well known in Barcelona and on the national dance music circuit, last year the talented Cristian Quirante also began to win over European and American audiences.
Hardly surprising when his mastery when combining futuristic r&b, indie pop and dance music is more than worthy of all the praise and success that has enjoyed since he first began as Alizzz in 2013. His work rate during this time has been nothing short of frenetic, with 3 EPs in 3 years and countless remixes and edits spread across several platforms.
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.
Piñol is now involved with Hivern Discs, John Talabot's label, releasing his own productions and remixes. After several remixes, he’s upping the ante and has just finished a 12” for Hivern Discs with the mighty Hugo Capablanca, besides a bunch of new remixes, new edits for the Hivern cult sub-label Hiverned and a well-waited first 12” of his own in Labelle Records.
