12 midnight: H.O.S.H. (Diynamic, Germany)
Style: Electronic music
Hamburg-based DJ and producer Holger Behn (aka H.O.S.H.) is a resident DJ at Watergate (Berlin), Studio 80 (Amsterdam) and Ego (Hamburg), among others. He also organizes the Grünanlage Festivals in northern Germany, booking a fine array of underground electronic talents and performing himself as one of this summer festival’s iconic DJs.
Since 2006, H.O.S.H. has been an integral cog in the Diynamic wheel (alongside label boss Solomun and frequent collaborator Stimming) and, as a result, has helped steer house music into uncharted waters. His productions and remixes have a recognizable deftness and engaging restraint. Comparing making music to cooking, H.O.S.H. believes that “the meal/track gets better the more love you put in it.”
11:15 pm: Adrián (Fever/Shake!, Bilbao)
Style: Groove & rock
Adrián has been “preaching” for over 15 years. He took his first steps at Comic’s, an underground joint where a whole generation of Bilbaínos learnt to love black music. Then, at Bullitt Groove Club (his club), he entrusted himself with a mission. Now he performs regularly at the leading venue Fever, also in Bilbao. Adrián has shared the DJ booth with Keb Darge, “Jazzman” Gerald, Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz), Oli Stewart (Casbah 73), Jadd (Improvisto), Mark Taylor (Blue Note), Ian Wright, Andy Lewis or Wayne Kra, among others.
10:15 pm: Garamendi (“Live”), Introducing Desert Plains
Style: Alternative pop & roc
Exploring the unchartered territory between bands like Elbow or Patrick Watson and radio-sounding Coldplay, Garamendi finds balance between things that do not usually come together – carefully woven textures and symphonic arrangements alongside popular chorus lines from readily available pop songs.
Recorded in Sopelana and the Andrés Isasi Auditorium, the tracks in Desert Plains rely on the rhythmic base supplied by gifted drummer Borja Barrueta (Jorge Drexler, Alberto Iglesias, Fernando Velázquez, Carlos Raya, Ara Malikian), supplemented with elegant string arrangements for a nine-strong ensemble. The result is a movie-like sound. With honesty as his creed and self-production as his challenge, Garamendi plays almost every role in this project: composer, arranger, producer, mixer and editor, with the aid of sound engineer Saúl Santolaria (Zenet, Joshua Edelman, Dead Bronco). The digital era is far from kind to LPs, but listeners who are ready to spend one hour on this unpretentious gem will want to come back to it once and again.
In addition to his work as a solo artist, Garamendi performs with other bands or singers, such as Smile from Getxo or Berta BitterSweet (soul, R&B). One of his songs is used for the titles of the radio show La Brújula (Onda Cero). Garamendi has recently been granted the Aixegaztea Award for Brightest Young Cultural Talent in Getxo.
