Sónar team never rests. While other festivals give us a mouthful of celebratory numbers, at Advanced Music headquarter's even lunch time is used to continue adding stripes to this seventeenth festival edition that already shows a whole load of certified arguments. LCD Soundsystem, Roxy Music, Plastikman, The Chemical Brothers, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip, Jónsi, Matthew Herbert, 2manydjs, Broadcast, Flying Lotus, Fuck Buttons, Joy Orbison, Roska, Zomby, Hudson Mohawke, Nosaj Thing, Mike Slott, King Midas Sound... You may cry of joy while you look at their confirmed lineup.
To this first point of attraction towards Sónar 2010 from today you’ll have to add another two biggies: Caribou y Moodyman will be at the Barcelona edition at the Red Bull Music Academy, the future masters school that for the second year in a row will have its own area at the SonarDôme stage, the perfect platform to showcase the 21 new talent artists arrived to Barcelona from 14 different countries.
The new proclaim “liquid dance music” from a completely re invented Caribou through “Swim”, and the deep house, meaty and soulful from Detroit’s Kenny Dixon Jr. (legal name of Moodymann), will set the master-mark on a stage that with performances from Pepepe (chiptune electronica from México), Lunice (broken beat and post-Dillista grooves from Montreal), Jackmaster (new garage house and UK hyperbass), Pursuit Grooves (seducing hi-tech soul, half way though heavy bass glitch-hop and classic Detroit), TOKiMONSTA (the first lady of the Brainfeeder crew), Sui Zhen (minimal folk from the Antipodes), or young talent from the Spanish electronic and urban scenes like BFlecha y Noaipre.
