    Sónar by Night - SonarClub

Playing in the big leagues

If there was anyone left who didn't know his name or had doubts about the quality and potential of Alizzz as a producer, the work he has done for "Ídolo" by C. Tangana should put them to rest. The record is the definitive confirmation of his enormous talent and the consolidation as a top producer of the contemporary scene. Christian Quirante, apart from having an astonishing facility to create rhythms, has shown that he has understood like no one else in Spain where the new trends in hip hop and r&b were heading in recent years, and has been unafraid to bring his sound closer to mainstream, making each and every track he has participated in grow (from tracks under his own name,  beats for MCs through to edits and remixes). The most recent example:"Guerrera", which united duelling rappers C. Tangana and Dellafuente and added another hit to the list. At Sónar Alizzz will offer a dj set between two world-famous artists, of which he is not really that far away: Bonobo and Diplo. Precisely the latter, the man with the midas touch in dance music and current pop music, knew the potential of Quirante and signed him four years ago for Jeffree's, Mad Decent's sub-label. If anyone wants to know how the best urban pop sounds today, just stop by SonarClub on Friday night and pay attention to his set.
