Pau Roca has risen as the new “house master” of Barcelona, as described in a review of the Sónar festival.
He has been playing regularly at such festivals as Mutek, Sónar, Brunch In the Park, DGTL, and BAM. As head of the vinyl-only Bons Records, he released records by likes of Doc L. Junior, Philou Louzolo, and Michael & Jackson. His sets run the gamut of musical history without any complexes or prejudices, paying homage to disco, boogie, and above all, American-influenced house music at his Libido parties at Nitsa Club. After 11 years, these parties have become truly mandatory for any lover of dance music in Barcelona, and has hosted Amp Fiddler, Dan Shake, Jovonn, and Jeremy Underground amongst many others. As a producer, Pau Roca had a surprise hit in 2016 with Garvey City, a track included in the first release of the enigmatic Black Money label. In 2018 he released a solo EP which includes four edits/reworks on Los Angeles’ Pleasure Of Love label.
On this podcast I tried to mix some club focused releases that have been in and out of my record bag in the past months. As I love to do in my DJ sets, I’ve selected some records (mostly house music) that I’ve bought recently and also some old records that are equally incredible. You’ll find Sotofett doing what he does best, a nice pearl (and cheap record!) made by Osunlade, and also the Wheel one which is one of my all-time secret weapons. I used two old MK2 Technics and my E&S DJR 400 mixer, and as you’ll see you can find all records on Discogs for a reasonable price. Hope you enjoy it!
