This is How ElectroSplash Festival Sounds
Among the featured artists, there are Âme, Fort Romeau, Hunee, Radio Slave, Helena Hauff, Eduardo de la Calle, Tama Sumo, Fred P, Danny Daze.
The duo Âme, mythical figures of the regeneration of the European house and co-owners together with Dixon of the almighty label Innervisions, Kristian Beyer & Frank Wiedemann, will be for the first time at ElectroSplash with a set for all tastes and ears.
Fort Romeau, English artist, fostered in Ghostly International by Matthew Dear and one of the best Djs and producers of the moment. Test it his latest work, ‘Insides’, also through Ghostly International and one of the best albums of last year according to critics.
Hunee Coming from Netherlands, and from his first album in 2009 has been growing to control his rhythmic selection that slowly deeps into the world of house music, rhythmically playful and influenced by labels such as Rush Hour, Future Times and W.T. As a DJ, he is enthusiastic in each session, too. His selections are of great passion going from the most essential house to disco and afro, towards techno.
Radio Slave. Matt Edwards is the co-founder of the label Rekids, but a part of Rekids, Matt has released on other labels as R&S, Om, Running Back and Ostgut Ton. DJ Mag pointed him as one of the greatest DJ of the moment, and granted him with the “Best British Producer” in the awards “Best of British”. Who was resident at Ministry of Sound, currently he maintains residences in Berlín, Panorama Bar, and París, Rex Club. Regularly, he headlines the best world’s clubs such as Fabric (London), Rex Club (Paris), Womb (Tokyo), Space (Ibiza), Sub Club (Glasgow) and Robert Johnson (Frankfurt).
Helena Hauff one of the more female talent rising in recent years, figurehead nights ‘Birds’ and ‘Other Instruments’ in her native Hamburg and assiduous collaborator of labels like Werkdsics – owned by Actress – and PAN. Pure acid techno sound, with Chicago’s waves, electro, and darkwave.
Eduardo De La Calle, one of our most acclaimed producers in purist techno circuits. After 20 years fighting for underground electronic culture and national clubbing scene, the leader of Analog Solutions will arrive at ElectroSplash to demonstrate his masterful skills at the analog sound worship, and for a few hours will take us from our Mediterranean coast direct to Detroit.
Tama Sumo – an old acquaintance of the Berlin scene, belonging to OstGut Ton and resident in clubs such as Berghain / Panoramabar, Freerotation, or Dance Tunnel will be following the fresh and housey wave.
Without leaving the warmer sounds, ElectroSplash will also feature the New Yorker Fred P, ambassador in Europe of American house, usual in labels such as Hivern or founder and best example of Discomaths, recently awarded as best national house artist in the latest edition of the Vicious Awards.
Danny Daze began his career in 1999, but it is a wonder that with 14 and producing with Fruity Loops he managed to capture the attention of the big ones. From Miami bass and booty house to the techno and electro, he managed to capture the attention of the big ones and leaving a trail of success on labels like Kompakt, Ellum, Phantasy or Turbo. Surely, in Vinaròz he feel at home. Welcome, Danny!
A festival full of LIVES:
Among artists playing LIVE are highlighted: WAS, BLD, Karate Dancer, The Suicide Of Western Culture, Dorian, Polock, Boris Carloff, Bearoid, Meneo, and Skygaze.
Following the novelty of the indietronica wake that will host the festival in one of its stages, the first name here is We Are Standard. Biscayans return to Valencia to give the audiences their sound fusion of rock, funk, and indie, to reach its current revolution of electronic sounds that make sense in its final form, WAS.
The electronic key ends with the additions of the Catalans The Suicide of Western Culture. Their origins, in the outskirts of a city with an extraordinary music scene, have entirely moulded both the philosophy and the sound of the duo: ethical principles close to those of radical Basque rock bands, textures and melodies that are influenced by early 90s IDM, structures and sounds that bring them close to the post-rock.
The sonic revolution will be available to dance and will surprise with an incredibly powerful live by BLD (from the national crew!) and Karate Dancers, direct from Ecuador. Asturian Skygaze will present in his live the best House in its more underground side!
But this year, ElectroSplash also shows the participation of bands with powerful live within the national and international indie scene. Among the confirmed, there are the names of the Catalan bands Dorian, training with an enviable career behind and experts in the fusion of new wave and indie rock, and Polock, who will present songs from his latest work, published last year, ‘English Grafitti .’ To these, he will accompany them to the musician, Czech composer, and producer Boris Carloff, the electronic pop of the Valencian Bearoid and the eclectic indietrónics by Meneo.
