About the DJ – JJ BERNARDO (Siroco, Madrid)
With over 20 years of professional DJ and producer career and over his 5000 live sets accumulated after passing through the major clubs and festivals in Spain and much of Europe. In April 1996, he became a programmer, producer and, of course, the resident DJ of Siroco Club. He is loyal to a club that has always been loyal to the music and is probably the most long time resident DJ to take charge of a booth at a club in Madrid.
From a cabin as eclectic as Siroco has had to adapt to the needs of any audience he has developed all styles sets (techno, house, breakbeat, trance, funk, disco, indi etc. ..)
Currently he combines his role as DJ, both under this alias as others (Benn and Hill, JJDJ, Vicious Kids …), with its musical production project with the band: Vicious Beats.

About the artist – Jordi Ponsa (Barcelona 1978)
Trapped between a comic and the reality
Artistically known as The Sentinel at Work under the name he shows his illustrations and works from different disciplines.
Whether original designs for the skateboarding industry, graphics for T-shirts or posters, he likes to express great deal of impact and contrasts in everything he does and even though the colourful compositions are the mayority, the fact of finding black and white or dark colours does not make his artwork less attractive.
Autodidact by nature he grew up in a time when change was constant, and adapting an essential requirement. This mater has contributed to a fusion of two worlds that do not often go together: the passion for the pen and music by the immediacy of the Internet and digital art.
Comics, skateboarding, music and cinema of the 90s marked a distinctive and personal style, able to face the harsh face of life and being able to smile back.
This passionate artist prints in each of his art pieces a little part of himself, a portion of his life experience.
His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, both individually and in collective exhibitions.
