Resident Advisor is back at Sónar festival in 2018. The world's leading electronic music site is co-curating the Saturday night programme at SonarLab. RA, which has more than 3.5 million monthly visitors, produces high-quality written and film content and, through its extensive event listings, and is a vital resource for promoters, artists, labels, producers and clubbers.
The RA SonarLab stage contains some of the most exhilarating live acts in electronic music. Lanark Artefax, the young Scottish artist championed by Björk and Aphex Twin, will bring his dazzling live show to Barcelona, as will Errorsmith, the producer behind Superlative Fatigue, one 2017's most fun and adventurous albums. Octo Octa, who performed one of last year's standout RA Sessions, will bring groovy, improvised house to the SonarLab stage, before experimental artist Fatima Al Qadiri brings her brand new live show to Barcelona for the first time.
The hotly tipped Jasss, who released her breakthrough debut LP, Weightless, last September, will open SonarLab with a DJ set. Closing the stage are two formidable back-to-back pairings: techno titans Ben Klock and DJ Nobu, sharing the decks for the very first time, and deep-digging duo Motor City Drum Ensemble and Jeremy Underground, whose chemistry behind the decks was enshrined in a legendary RA podcast.
