Sónar by Day - SonarVillage by Estrella Damm
We can't think of a better way to start one of the three days of Sónar de Día than with an atmospheric set by YDVST. The mysterious producer from Madrid, artistic director of the very interesting label Sweat Taste, has been working for quite some time - his first self-produced release is from 2014 - composing pieces of spectral, synthetic and deeply emotional ambient. So much so that he has dedicated several of his pieces to Japanese hip hop producer Nujabes, one of his personal heroes, who died in 2010. YDVST's productions (he's reluctant to unveil his identity for the moment) are creeping and dreamy, occupying an imaginary place between cinematic music and the avant-garde grime of producers like Visionist and Kuedo. Pure hypnosis for SonarVillage.
