REFLECTOR #2: Club
In this second chapter, “REFLECTOR” presents a live set by Lucient & Gnomalab and Sisters of Sound (SOS) representing the club scene both in Barcelona and Los Angeles.
REFLECTOR is a series of electronic music that aims at building bridges between Spanish and American musicians. Each of the three chapters presents a double music session by DJs from Spain and another from the United States. Both of the sessions are played by DJs who run a show on Dublab radio, a station based in Los Angeles and Barcelona that has become a benchmark of electronic music on both sides of the ocean. Each chapter explores a specific area of the local panorama, highlighting the reflections between both scenes and the value of the universal language of electronic music.
REFLECTOR #2 heads to El Cid –one of SOS’s favorite LA spots to dance to good music, regularly attending “A Club Called Rhonda” and Dave P’s “Making Time” parties which transform this traditional flamenco dancing and dining club to a delicious late night party. On the Barcelona side and very close to the Paral.lel street, old cradle of Barcelona’s bohemia, LAUT, where Lucient is a resident, is an avant-garde club designed for a reduced audience with a very careful selection of local and international DJ’s and equipped with a high-quality sound system.
About LAUT w/ Lucient & Gnomalab
LAUT is a young Barcelona underground club that offers careful programming by and for lovers of electronic music, where the local scene and the most avant-garde proposals from outside our borders are balanced, in a not very crowded environment and with great attention to detail.
In his line up it is common to find Lucient, one of his resident DJs, who has already put himself to the test with two marathon, 12-hour non-stop sessions, a detail that alone indicates his extensive knowledge of dance music of all times and the security with which he exercises his skills behind the decks.
Gnomalab is a renowned visual artist on the national scene who has left his mark in the best electronic music festivals in the country, as well as in museums and facades around the world. He is a master of visual perception; in how things can be transformed in relation to how we observe them.
