Røtter – Spear26.11.2017
RØTTER, puristically minded about techno, keeps his head down and lets his music speak for itself. Little is known about the artist and it’s as though he has just appeared out of thin air. Not one to deceive however his sets leave you in no doubt about his extensive know how and skill. Having so far shared the decks with artists such as Mulero, Speedy J and AnD among others, means he takes his work seriously.
A hard, percussive, dense techno, within that bpm range that seems like , unless someone like him is there to contain it, an unwelcome caos would descend upon the dance floor. Currently a resident DJ at Insert Club, one of Barcelona’s most underground happenings and is part of Insert Booking. You don’t need to know about RØTTER: Just listen and dance.
Behind the turntables or live acts Spear is one of the new artists on the newest electronic music. Adrià Ponsa (Terrassa, Barcelona) is, despite his apparent invisibility, one of the most important artists of the Spanish scene. Ousitder of the commercial paths, true political consciousness about music and its relation to societies, Spear represents a logical evolution of Techno music. Influenced by the primary U.S.A and British techno of twenty years ago, Spear makes straight forward and effective sound, the coldest and deepest electronic music.
His labels In Believers We Trust and The Wild Division are essential to understand the present Spanish scene. Sometimes far from the clubs, he is easier to find sharing his time in musical educational programs for young people at his hometown.
Spear sounds with the simplicity of who knows what to do in every detail, with the minimum elements: effective and really rare. A newly shaded pitch of the Techno-music present. He reminds the present industrial Techno revival mixed with re-invented Braindance, sometimes sci-fi melody evolutions and contundent rhythm structures achieving unexpected results.
Spear is one of the artists of collaboration between Antic Teatre Barcelona’s B2B Festival.
