Join us on the 22nd of Feb for a night of Indie music at Generator Barcelona. We are please to announce sets from Ricard Nobles, Pin & Pon DJ’s and a live music set from Grushenka. Join us at the bar from 22.30pm for some of the best music in the city.
SÓNAR (Barcelona’s International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art) is the greatest electronic music festival in the world and was founded in 1993 by Enric Palau, Sergio Caballero and Ricard Robles. On this occasion we receive the visit from one of the co-directors of this great festival of electronic music. We are sure we will enjoy with his extensive knowledge of music in a session that we predict is going to be un-miss able.
Rafa and Joan have in recent times been considered one of the top rated DJ combos by the public (in recent years chosen as the Best National DJ by the readers of the prestigious music magazine Rockdelux). Almost all of the most representative spanish indie-circuit clubs have warmly accepted their eclectic and fun sessions where everything has its place (from pop, rock, techno, electronic, soul …) caring above all for the quality in the selection and not forgetting the technique, with help from the latest technology tools. They have participated in festivals such as the Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, Sonorama, South Pop Sevilla and Isla Cristina, SOS 4.8 in Murcia, etc … Their maximum is good taste and good technique, trying to mix up from the beginning to the end what seems difficult to combine. They are concert promoters and are also known for their musical-journalistic facet (they co-direct a musical web Indienauta.com and maintain informed the listeners of their weekly radio show, “Rayos C en tus oídos”, of the latest developments in the national and international independent scene), and they’re also ahead of the label “El Genio Equivocado” (home of artists like Odio Paris, Grushenka, Aias, Las Ruinas, Les Sueques …). Someone said about them that they were “indie hard workers” and observing their CV this statement could not be more accurate. Pin&Pon djs, as djs, explore in each of their sessions their extensive knowledge of the latest music, without forgetting to also give free rein to the classics, those hits that have been with us for years and have become indispensable on the crazy nights in Spain.
Acoustic Live: Grushenka
Grushenka are a noise-pop group from Barcelona, currently formed by Xavi (vocals and guitar), Joan (who replaced Erik on bass), Laia (keyboards) and Enric (drums). Born in mid- 2010, after publishing in November 2011 their debut EP “Grushenka”, with which got rave reviews, in June 2012 his long awaited first album was released. “Técnicas Subversivas”, recorded and produced at Xavi’s home, but mastered at Golden California Studios (Sonic Youth, Girls, Japandroids) confirmed all the expectations. Fuelled by the anthemic single “Ese Gran Lunar de Tu Espalda” (which included an exclusive cover of New Order’s “Ceremony” on vinyl), the record is a mind-blowing blend of 90s shoegaze and pop, recalling seminal bands like Los Planetas, Ride or The Smiths. Distortion, dissonance and instantly catchy pop melodies for one of the most exciting bands on the Spanish music scene. We couldn’t be more eager to hear their next step, expected for early 2014.
