- Born Pablo Díaz-Reixa in the Canary Islands, the Spanish-owned archipelago off the coast of Northwestern Africa, El Guincho found indie blog fame in early 2008, shortly after the previous December’s release of his album Alegranza, which coincided nicely with his North American debut performance in Austin, Texas, at the SXSW festival. It was while touring with the band Coconut in 2006 that the idea for El Guincho –blending samples of his favorite tropicalia and calypso along with percussion and his own vocals– came about.

- NOIA is the solo project of singer and producer Gisela Fulla. Fulla was born and raised in Barcelona by a family of activists. She moved to New York and began working as a sound designer/mixer and music composer for film. She also started producing music with traces of Tropicalia, leftfield R&B, traditional Spanish melodies and experimental sound design under the name of NOIA, which means “girl” in catalan. She sings in Spanish, English and Catalan.

- Extraperlo is a Barcelona-based band that debuted in 2009. Influenced by bands like Aztec Camera, Dominant Legs, Orange Juice, Prefab Stroub and Roxy Music they released their sophomore album Delírio Específico back in 2012 (produced by El Guincho) to a welcoming blogosphere; especially in Mexico, Chile, Belgium and Australia. Considered by the national press the future of homegrown music, they return with their latest album Chill Aquí, which takes their sophisti-pop sound to new chillin’ horizons. Still in search of the perfect pop song, idyllic and captivating, their music aspires to overstep genres with each album’s own lyrical universe and the unwavering quest for beauty that has always driven this Mediterranean pop act.
