Sónar by Night - SonarCar
Aside from being Spain’s most admired and internationally recognized producer; John Talabot is an extraordinary dj. His vast knowledge of the history of music (dance, electronica and much more…) and the breadth of his musical tastes make him the ideal DJ to take over the controls at SonarCar to play an extended set. Talabot moves effortlessly and spontaneously between different genres, while at the same time imprinting his own unique sonic identity onto his sets. In fact, for attentive listeners, his sets reveal many similar characteristics to his own productions: psychedelia, slow bpm house, mutant techno, new wave, Balearic, synth pop, African rhythms and cosmic funk... literally anything is possible when his hands are on the cross fader. We can therefore eagerly look forward to an exciting 6-hour voyage of musical discovery into exuberant sounds and lesser-travelled sonic pathways. Now acknowledged as Spain’s leading international electronic producer, everything changed for Oriol Riverola, following his two releases on Permanent Vacation, "My Old School" and "Sunshine", signed under the name John Talabot. His omnipresent, nuance laced house captivated audiences worldwide, as did his only solo album to date, "ƒIN". Talabot has become an electronic music giant for many reasons: his impeccable work as head of the Hivern label; his tracks for Young Turks; remixes for The XX, Bicep and Peaking Lights; his impressive live show alongside Pional; and, more recently, the release of "The Night Land", the first Talaboman album, a joint project with the Swedish producer Axel Boman.
