We round up the very best in techno the week has to offer. From the melancholic to the relentless and everything in between, you'll be sure to find a perfect place to stomp.
City Hall Presents: Elements - 13 June
Rebekah hosts her first Elements party in Barcelona at - fittingly - City Hall, the mother of techno venues in Bcn. Renowned for taking no prisoners with her relentless track selections, she's invited a line up to reinforce this. 'The Baron' Dave Clarke is joined by Spanish born selector Alienata. As visuals are a strong force in the Element concept, Rebekah mainstay Malika Maria will be on hand to make the journey extra sensory.
Inviting techno icons old and new to play under the same roof, this SCI + TEC line up could not go without a mention. Fans of groovier and more melodic techno will be enamoured with what's on offer here. Rubbing shoulders from 10 pm til 7am are Carlo Lio, El Jefe, Dubfire, Hitch, Nicole Moudaber, Paul Ritch, Raul Facio and The Deals. We expect the highly regarded sound system at our beloved INPUT to be put through its paces.
Techno doesn't come much purer than Oscar Mulero's stunning techno imprint. Established in 2004 as Pole Recordings, the label had a steady, yet always consistent output before opening up to the more all encompassing Polegroup. Delivering the goods will be Reeko, Exium, Lewis Fautzi and Kwarz.
Nina Kraviz' inimitable Trip label established itself as a formidable force amongst fellow techno crews, since its inception in 2014. Trip invades the coolest venues around the world including Iceland, where the Trip To The Moon party continues to spark intrigue. For their Catalan offering, Nina has selected artists from different corners of the techno hemisphere from the hyper-techno of DJ Rush to the dub and minimal offerings of Steve O'Sullivan. The first lady will, of course, be spinning during headline hours.
Having had a more global impact over the last few years Joseph Capriati has cemented himself into somewhat legendary status. Powered by his relentless work ethic and fervently followed by his die-hard fans, he will delve into his collection for an extended set here for his 100% JC event. Think main room techno, which only he knows how best to serve up.
