Mark Stewart is the man behind Claro Intelecto's moniker, a cult artist since his first release on Ai Records in 2003, the classic 'Peace Of Mind EP'. With a personal approach between IDM, Detroit techno and dub-techno, his legacy continued with 'Neurofibro' (from Neurofibromatosis, an illness that he suffers) and Metanarrative, this last one on Modern Love's imprint. With an infinite sound palette that doesn't seem to ever end, his 'Warehouse Sessions' were the counterpoint to Metanarrative album.
After a short hiatus, he returns to Dutch label Delsin, where he releases 'Reform Club', a new approach to techno, full of delicate melodies, buzzing dub techno and powerful basslines. 'Exhilarator', his latest album, marks the return of one of the most interesting techno producers, always revering the old days but never losing sight of the future.
On his first visit in Barcelona since 2009, Claro Intelecto will deliver an essential live that will blow the minds of everyone gathered this night.
Paul Woolford has been producing and djing for ages, but it's been with his Special Request alias that has reached more people than ever. Starting as a project to honor the breakbeat and jungle old-school days, his latest album Belief System is a piece of art that blends his love por pirate radios and visceral techno, dark breaks, UK Garage reminiscences and all that sound that made the UK hardcore rave and ramifications a neverending well of inspiration.
With many years of experience in the dj booth, one can expect a techno rollercoaster that will range from UK Techno, old school breaks, hardcore basslines, dazzling melodies and brutal drums. The best way to end the night with a masterclass.
We've been after local legend Marc Piñol to play for us since a long time. With many years of experience behind the decks, the now revered producer and remixer for Hivern Discs imprint, will open the night with a full of surprises b2b with Draft member Rusven.
