19 Barcelona Electronic Artists That Put Ibiza to Shame

Get acquainted with the Spanish capital's electronic scene.

Is it possible to cover an entire city in one post? Well, no, not really, but we're going to try anyway, even if it only scratches the surface. The place in question today is Barcelona, a city where the electronic music scene looks towards the outside world to support its own homegrown creativity. At first glance, the city's club scene appears to revolve around big name festival DJs who can attract tourists, or guiris as they're locally known. But Barcelona isn't the flashy adult theme park that nearby Ibiza is, and local talent manages to shine through the clutter.

Electronic mainstays like the Sonar Festival and Playground magazine grew out of its fertile soils, and clubs like Razzmatzz, Bloc, and KER cultivate the scene. The Discos Paradiso record store is a central hub, helmed by the likes of DJ Bruce Lee and DJ Abu Sou. And then DJs like Zero, David M, and 2D2 feed the hungry ears of the masses.

But really, we want to focus on the producers, so we put together this handy list for those interested. It's a cross section of up and coming artists and veterans; of transplants and locals; and a wide selection of genres, from tropical bass, to 4x4, to underground UK styles, to pop and indie, and more. If we left something out, please don't cry. Tweet us instead! That's what it's there for.

Let's get on with this already, yeah? In no particular order:

Professor Angel Sound

The Angel has probably the most interesting

story

ever, getting locked up in a Panamanian prison after being forced to become a drug mule. He made a lot of music in his cell though, and is now a free man. Oh, moombahton. And zouk bass.

Alizzz

For all your HudMo, Rustie type needs in Barcelona.

Headbirds


The recent Boiler Room alum is all over the place, playing with any style as long as it features a warm electric pulse.

Cardopusher


Cardo

is a Venezuelan ex-pat who shape shifts in style every few years, most recently molting into acid techno flavors. Also runs the

Classic Works

label along side

Nehuen

(my first ever Twitter follower!).

Los Timbres


Global bass wunderkinds. The list of genres

Los Timbres

fuck with on their Soundcloud page is like 2 inches long.

Cora Novoa


I don't know much about

Cora

, but this tune is dope.

Adriana Lopez


Yea, we had to get some hard ass techno on this list. I wrote about

Adriana

on

VIBE

a little while back too.

beGun


beGun

makes pretty bass, with glittery synths and toy pianos. He also names all his stuff after various cities.

Wooky


His name is Wooky, though. Do you really need more? Yea? Well take a listen then. This is possibly my favorite track in the list.

Miguel Puente


Some slow burning euphoric tech house right hurrr.

Zora Jones


Zora rolls with the Pelican Fly camp, so you know she's on some next shit. She can often be found alongside

Sinjin Hawke

, who lives in BCN too.

Downliners Sekt


The

Sekt

are two mysterious transplants that have captivated underground, brooding weirdos for a few years now.

John Talabot


Although he's only been in the game a few years, Talabot is one of the most established artist in Barcelona, bringing to the table a soulful kick-snare deadpan. You can often find him on tour with another Barcelonan,

Pional

.

Sak Noel


Sak Noel

is an EDM champ. Hey, 35 million viewers can't be wrong... right? Well, maybe.

Pacheko


The Venezuelan homie put some semi-permanent roots down here, bringing with him a constantly evolving style that sticks to the fringes, avoiding trends outright. He moves from deep bass, to tropical styles rooted in his home town, to Baltimore and more.

Vactor


Vactor

is in a L.I.E.S. state of mind with her non-conformist, raw electronics. Her first release is on cassette tape. Fancy.

Cauto


Cauto is another reliable source of fringey bass music, and is part of the

Disboot

team.

Nev.Era


Nev

's track is like the movie

Shutter Island

, only set on a tropical island with a beautiful beach that you can only visit when you escape.

Although he's only been in the game a few years, Talabot is one of the most established artist in Barcelona, bringing to the table a soulful kick-snare deadpan. You can often find him on tour with another Barcelonan,

Sak Noel

is an EDM champ. Hey, 35 million viewers can't be wrong... right? Well, maybe.

Pacheko


The Venezuelan homie put some semi-permanent roots down here, bringing with him a constantly evolving style that sticks to the fringes, avoiding trends outright. He moves from deep bass, to tropical styles rooted in his home town, to Baltimore and more.

Vactor


Vactor

is in a L.I.E.S. state of mind with her non-conformist, raw electronics. Her first release is on cassette tape. Fancy.

Cauto


Cauto is another reliable source of fringey bass music, and is part of the

's track is like the movie

Shutter Island

, only set on a tropical island with a beautiful beach that you can only visit when you escape.

SIMØNE


The 80s never sounded so good.

Mike Steyels would prefer to be a guiri than deal with another NY winter - @iswayskii

Zora rolls with the Pelican Fly camp, so you know she's on some next shit. She can often be found alongside

John Talabot

Is it possible to cover an entire city in one post? Well, no, not really, but we're going to try anyway, even if it only scratches the surface. The place in question today is Barcelona, a city where the electronic music scene looks towards the outside world to support its own homegrown creativity. At first glance, the city's club scene appears to revolve around big name festival DJs who can attract tourists, or guiris as they're locally known. But Barcelona isn't the flashy adult theme park that nearby Ibiza is, and local talent manages to shine through the clutter.

Electronic mainstays like the Sonar Festival and Playground magazine grew out of its fertile soils, and clubs like Razzmatzz, Bloc, and KER cultivate the scene. The Discos Paradiso record store is a central hub, helmed by the likes of DJ Bruce Lee and DJ Abu Sou. And then DJs like Zero, David M, and 2D2 feed the hungry ears of the masses.

But really, we want to focus on the producers, so we put together this handy list for those interested. It's a cross section of up and coming artists and veterans; of transplants and locals; and a wide selection of genres, from tropical bass, to 4x4, to underground UK styles, to pop and indie, and more. If we left something out, please don't cry. Tweet us instead! That's what it's there for.

Let's get on with this already, yeah? In no particular order:

Professor Angel Sound


The Angel has probably the most interesting

story

ever, getting locked up in a Panamanian prison after being forced to become a drug mule. He made a lot of music in his cell though, and is now a free man. Oh, moombahton. And zouk bass.

Alizzz


For all your HudMo, Rustie type needs in Barcelona.

Headbirds


The recent Boiler Room alum is all over the place, playing with any style as long as it features a warm electric pulse.

Cardopusher


Cardo

is a Venezuelan ex-pat who shape shifts in style every few years, most recently molting into acid techno flavors. Also runs the

Classic Works

label along side

Nehuen

(my first ever Twitter follower!).

Los Timbres


Global bass wunderkinds. The list of genres

Los Timbres

fuck with on their Soundcloud page is like 2 inches long.

Cora Novoa


I don't know much about

Cora

, but this tune is dope.

Adriana Lopez


Yea, we had to get some hard ass techno on this list. I wrote about

Adriana

on

VIBE

a little while back too.

beGun


beGun

makes pretty bass, with glittery synths and toy pianos. He also names all his stuff after various cities.

Wooky


His name is Wooky, though. Do you really need more? Yea? Well take a listen then. This is possibly my favorite track in the list.

Miguel Puente


Some slow burning euphoric tech house right hurrr.

Zora Jones


Zora rolls with the Pelican Fly camp, so you know she's on some next shit. She can often be found alongside

Sinjin Hawke
