Sónar Barcelona’s regular attendee’s still have perfect memories of the two occasions on which Marea Stamper - better known around the world as The Black Madonna - played at the festival. It’s hardly surprising, after all, The Black Madonna is not just any DJ. Aside from her impeccable selections and surprising and spontaneous mixes, her exceptional charisma and the happiness with which she plays, leaves a mark on even the hardest crowd. This year she will be in charge of putting the finishing touches to SonarPub by Thunder Bitch on Saturday night, which means finishing the festival in the best possible way, dancing until the last second of the last track.
In addition to global acclaim for her DJ sets, Stamper has also received attention for her exquisite, if few and far between, productions, released to date. The 10 minutes of "He Is The Voice I Hear", is still a clear demonstration that her talent extends beyond the turntables. Hyperactive and always interested in communicating her love of music, Stamper has recently started her own radio program, "We Still Believe Radio", with a show available every week on her website and in her Soundcloud, in which she reviews her favorites of dance music from all eras. One more reason to still believe.
