As many of you know we are just in the thick of things of one of the biggest weeks of the electronic music calendar. This June the 23rd edition of Sonar festival will be taking place, however, we have decided to cast our curious eye on the ever expanding OFF Parties that seem to get bigger and better every year. Starting on Monday the 13th running through till the 20th, there will be an unbelievable series of day and night time parties to feast your mind, body and soul on.

Hosted by all kinds of brands, artists, labels, & promoters it really is the who’s who of the dance music industry, and what better backdrop could you ask for than the beautiful surroundings of Barcelona. Scattered across the scenic city you will be able to find parties, on rooftops, on the beach, round a pool, outside museums and squares in the heart of the city. There is even an extremely picturesque abandoned monastery playing host to several parties across the week. What more could you ask for?

Although this proved very hard to whittle it down to our top ten picks (as there are so many incredible parties on offer), here they are:

A magical journey in the sunshine at one of the most enchanting settings of the city, that sounds great to us. The picnic area creates an atmosphere like no other. Many are familiar with the Arpiar boys, but without fail they supply you with a unique experience only they can provide. Joined by the talented Cezar and Dubtil, this really will be a Romanian masterclass not to be missed. We can not wait for that Arpiar sunset.

And what better way to celebrate their birthday than in the heart of Barcelona, with as always, a careful selection of artists they adore, and that are loved by so many. Over the years we have seen them go from strength to strength, from a night, to a record label, and an agency, and they are not showing any signs of slowing down. Fantastic artists, and run by fantastic people. There is always such a unique atmosphere when Toi.Toi. are in town and we cannot wait to see what they bring to the table for their birthday bash.

First of all the Lola Ed crew & Half Baked teamed up to curate a day of pure grooves, spearheaded by the French maestros Apollonia. Stage 2 is hosted by local club Checkpoint, offering a feast of sounds.

ROW 14
When? 19th June, 09:00-22:00

We had to include this in our top ten because where else can you get a better Elrow experience than its original birth place. A day time fiesta beginning early in the day rolling through till late at night at Row14. A fun filled party full of fancy dress, confetti, and inflatables, providing an exciting atmosphere like no other.

Wizards Valentino Kanzyani, and Barac are joined by the groove master DeWalta for a perfect balance to your Sunday soundtrack. Oh, did we mention it’s a rooftop party, fantastic.

Far, far away from the grey skies of London, the Fuse boys have decided to spread their wings to one of the latest reformed clubs in Barcelona, INPUT. It’s always nice to catch their unbelievable sound outside of the hustle and bustle of the city they call home. Joined by the usual suspects Moscow Records owner Archie Hamilton and regular face Dan Farserelli, we are especially looking forward to seeing what Rex Club resident Molly has on offer.

So there you have it, our top picks of OFF week 2016. See you all in Barcelona, for what is shaping up to be an amazing week.

Music Through Pictures – Vlad Caia

Music Through Pictures is where we attempt to highlight the relationship between art, sound, images and music whilst also getting an insight into the musical minds of some of our favourite DJs and producers…

vlad caia

Those of you who are familiar with the sounds of Vlad Caia, will know why we were incredibly excited at MEOKO HQ when we had his name up next on the list of artists for Music Through Pictures. With an output of incredible beats, ranging from punchy minimal hooks to warped and experimental soundscapes, Vlad is truly a passionate musican and we couldn’t wait to see what the artist would give us. For those of you who don’t know, take a moment to view what is, as expected, one of the most interesting responses to the series yet. This week, we delve a little deeper into the vast and varied rabbit hole of musical knowledge and inspiration that makes Vlad Caia tick…

Music Through Pictures – Vera

By Hot Off The Press, MEOKO Presents, Music Through Pictures

music through pics copy

Music Through Pictures is where we attempt to highlight the relationship between art, sound, images and music whilst also getting an insight into the musical minds of some of our favourite DJs and producers…

German born Vera has become extremely influential for the female spectrum of electronic music through her elegant appearances behind the decks. Combining subtelty with solidarity, her music presents an intutive taste with an organic nature. With releases on Peron, Hello? Repeat, Oslo and Half Baked, Vera has become a firm female figure and her ability to move a dancefloor through her own and other artists productions is unparallelled. We caught up with her for our latest Music Through Pictures!

Photo by De Fotomeisjes

Cabanne has become one of the most influential artists on the Parisian underground music scene, namely through his own output Minibar which has been at the forefront of the minimal/tech house scene in the city. Individually as a producer, he has constructed a self defined unique micro style that implements elements of house and techno that are carefully wrapped in his own signature sound. With a sharp ear for mixing, Cabanne’s ability behind the decks has become something to admire due to his seamless transitions and pursuits to challenge himself through playing unrefined music. We are honoured to have him in our Music Through Pictures Series…Welcome, Cabanne!

Music Through Pictures with Valentino Kanzyani

By Festival, Hot Off The Press, Music Through Pictures

Music Through Pictures Valentino

In 2005, Valentino Kanzyani set up Jesus Loved You, a manly vinyl based record label. A bold step considering the trends towards digital at that time. His passion for playing records goes back to the nineties, where he was regularly seen spinning records on three turntables in his home country’s most famous dance music club. A defining figure in Eastern Europe’s dance music scene, the “Slovenian techno father” continued his impressive efforts beyond. A producer too, he became part of the well-renowned Cadenza label. Another milestone that cannot be ignored, is Next Wave, which he kickstarted along with his friends in 2011 and today has become one of the best underground parties in Ibiza, if not the whole of Europe. We are honoured to have him in our Music Through Pictures Series…Welcome, Valentino!

Cartulis Day // January Heat with S.A.M. Lazare Hoche, Tommy Vicari Jnr + Residents

By Hot Off The Press, Music Through Pictures, News

10887952 10153538680852080 1359080760 n 1

Cartulis Day look set to provide the perfect antidote to the January blues with this night-long, intimate party that brings the some of the finest house connoisseurs to London Bridge’s Crucifix Lane. Cartulis have a proven track record when it comes to hosting some of the capital’s most vibrant, bacchanalian parties, and this is no exception; a great license means that this is going to go on late (or is it early..?) into the following afternoon.

 avatars-000013717198-p3z7gl-t500x500

Crucifix is lucky enough to be graced by the multifarious musical talents of S.A.M, the moniker of Samuel André Madsen. The producer has seen countless well-received tracks released on some of the beacons of the house underground, including Jus-Ed’s Underground Quality and Richard Zepezauer’s Nsyde Music.

He’s joined by the pioneering, seemingly boundless young energy of the Frenchman Lazare Hoche (check out MEOKO’s excellent Music Through Pictures interview with him here.) Combining a penchant for creating his own refreshingly forward-thinking 4/4 creations with a fiercely no-nonsense traditionalism, Hoche knows how to get a party moving. His own eponymous record label has been the brains behind a string of solid releases. Tommy Vicari Jnr’s eclecticism and versatility has cemented his position as the archetypal ‘DJ’s DJ’ over the years, spinning everything from the unashamed funk of house and disco to the harder aesthetic of the techno spectrum. Everything that gets a dancefloor heaving, basically. 

 

Not sure what to expect? Check out the after video of last year’s Cartulis anniversary:
