When you’re onto a winning formula, why change it? The likely motto of promoters La Funny Vie En Rouge whom on Saturday 15th June, and for a second year running, are putting Lola Ed and Half Baked up against each other at the same Off Sonar venue; Hotel Villa Olimpic, Barcelona.

Almost every DJ that batted it out last year returns again too - that’s Dan Ghenacia, Jef K, Le Loup, Chris Carrier, Nail, Daze Maxim, Dyed Soundorom, Julietta, Rudolf and Yakine. One peek at the video from 2012 and you can see why – goose bump-inducing tunes, glorious sunshine and beaming smiles all round.

La Funny Vie En Rouge return to Off Sonar with Lola Ed Vs Half Baked

In anticipation of the event, we asked each of the DJs playing which track will be their Sonar bomb
Giving you a sneak-peak and a bit of a warm-up ahead of the day.
Ready? The turn your volume UP.

Mood II Swing - The Summer Swing

I first heard this on a Simon DK (DiY) tape in 1994. I was sat in a car, a little worse for wear, at a free party and that tape kept me going! Mood II Swing are one of, if not my favourite, house music producers and this tune has never left my bag.
Dyed Soundorom Dyed Soundorom
Cajmere & Dyed Soundorom - 1 + 1 = 1

I’ll be dropping this peak time; it was an honour to collaborate with Lord Cajmere on this! I can't wait to dance with you all in the sun.

Jomanda - I’ll Give It To You (Come Get It, Seduction Mix)

One of my all-time favourites from Jomanda produced by Casio Ware in 1987. It’ll surely rock the Lola ED garden party... pure class!
Julietta Julietta
The Poor Knight - My Baby Drives Me Home

Even though this track is more than 10 years old, I just discovered it recently. I have so many good memories from playing it at the end of a set while taking in the view of happy faces everywhere.”
Chris Carrier Chris Carrier
Johnny Aux - Voltage

One of my top favourites for Sonar... dope track!
Daze Maxim Daze Maxim
Daze Maxim - Tableara

Looking forward to playing this new one released by my Apollonia friends!
Rudolf Rudolf
Herbert - Deeper

This is from one of my favourite albums ever; 100Lbs, first released in 1996. The title says it all...’Deeper’! What an incredible flow followed by great tension and a super-rich harmony. I hope you enjoy it.
Dan Ghenacia Dan Ghenacia
John Dimas feat. Jose - Groove Me

Summer vibes from the young talent John Dimas. See you all at Sonar… happy days!
Yakine Yakine
John Dimas - Self Control

This will sound so hot in the sunshine – deepness! Glad to be joining the Lola ED crew once again for Off Sonar; last year: c’etait ouf! [It was crazy!]
Le Loup Le Loup
Joey Anderson - A. Press Play

This is simply my summer anthem already.
