A Spanish netlabel pioneer (founding one of Neovinyl in 2006, which would later also release physical copies) and an active representative of a domestic cutting edge sound, Baldo Gallego is a self-confessed lover of analogue drum machines and has always been part of the underground, motivated by a passion for electronica and dance music, while counting self-management as part of his core philosophy. He currently lives in Barcelona and runs the Good Ratio Music label, on which this year he has released many of his EPs, including “The Guide”, together with British producer ASOK.

Baldo’s sets follow a Chicago and Detroit sound –especially deep house and outer space techno– always in a smooth way, whatever the genre he uses. His style consists of a combination of warm pads and corrosive beat arrangements that have earmarked his production sound and dj sets, without seeing him lose the human touch and his sense of soul behind the machines. This is his Sónar debut, and he will open SonarLab on Saturday night.
