Miguel Bastida’s (1984, Granada, Spain) career has been steadily going up since he started DJing with only 14 years old, in the local radio station of his hometown, Alhama de Granada.
Nowadays living in Barcelona, Miguel has become one of the most in-demand Spanish artists worldwide, due to his versatility, great musical selection and charisma dominating the dancefloor.
Miguel’s influences initially came from bands as The Prodigy or The Chemical Brothers, and also from harder styles, like hardtechno and breakbeats. Besides, he had one of South Spain’s electronic music strongholds close to home: Industrial Copera. There, DJs as Ben Sims or Cristian Varela left a huge impression on Bastida, who also looked up to artists such as Nathan Fake, James Holden or Alex Under, during the golden years of minimal techno.
Miguel already dominated the mixing craft when he turned 16. After his first nights out, the idea of music production started to come to his mind. Picturing sounds with each song he listened to, Bastida started gathering with friends with the same ideas and taste for music, setting up his first live sets, which finally led to the foundation of his first group: the electronic music band Raíz Electrónica (Electronic Roots). After that, and thanks to his self-taught practice, he managed to dominate his first production software, Reason, changing to Logic afterwards. Today, being his weapon of choice when creating beats. His love for machines is also well known, especially for Moog’s creations and MIDI controllers.
With his family support as mainstay, helping at the family’s business in the morning and focusing on the studio sessions during the afternoon, Miguel was able to dedicate himself to his great passion: the creation of tunes. Music production has been, without a question, what has taken Miguel Bastida where he is today. After years and years of being locked up in the studio, he managed to create his own, exclusive and uncompromised sound, whose turning point came in 2015, with the release of ‘Moudness’, a track that managed to stay up in the Top charts of platforms such as Beatport. Before that, he already managed to knock on the doors of heavyweights as Umek and his 1605 platform. Then Sébastien Leger’s Mistakes Music came, followed by Mark Knight’s Toolroom; Deeperfect; Trapez, elrow Music; Marc Marzenit’s Paradigma Music; Dubfire’s Sci-Tec; and most recently, Suara, demonstrating all the styles he dominates. Today his productions can be found in the selections of artists such as Richie Hawtin, Paco Osuna, Luciano, John Acquaviva or Leger, Dubfire or Umek themselves.
As DJ, Miguel Bastida belongs to the exclusive group of Spanish DJs that has had the chance of touring around the world, presenting his repertoire in almost every country in the planet, from Australia and New Zealand to electronic music strongholds as New York and Chicago. His name can also be found on the line-ups of the world’s best clubs and festivals, managing to convince even the most demanding dancefloors of the scene.
Self-taught and entrepreneur, Bastida’s projects ended up naturally in the creation of his own label, Be One Records, that he manages along two of his childhood friends. Bastida is in charge of the A&R, while his buddies in Berlin and Granada manage design and social networks duties. Recently they created a sub-label, dedicated to support and give a chance to young and upcoming talents of the electronic music scene.
Be it as groove creator, selector or supporter of new talents with his label, Miguel Bastida is a safe bet for any record label, festival or venue that seeks to tear up their dancefloors.
Switzerland based, Kosovan born DJ/producer Sabb is an artist whose presence and maturity in the studio seems to develop with every release to which he puts his name. His production pedigree was quickly identified by some of the scene’s most respected tastemakers, with early outings on Matthias Tanzmann’s Moon Harbour, Nic Fanculli’s Saved Records and Noir’s Noir Music preceding remixes for the likes of John Digweed, Sasha, Hot Since 82 and Hector Couto.
His signature sound – a fluid mix of crisp drum grooves, chunky, overheated basslines & pitched-down vocal sampling – has quickly won audiences over in their droves, a fact evidenced by 2014 track ‘Illusiones’ becoming one of the season’s most Shazam-ed tracks in Ibiza.
Fast forward to February 2015 and Sabb was ranked the second most charted artist on Resident Advisor, which immediately saw him tapped by Rumours boss Guy Gerber. The first of two quick-fire singles, ‘One Of Us’ ft. Forrest, then followed on Moon Harbour in June, featuring a notable remix from the legendary Dennis Ferrer – a record heavily backed by BBC R1 tastemakers Annie Mac & Pete Tong amongst others.
The release went on to feature at #60 in Mixmag’s top 100 tunes of the year, while his recent release on Suara, ‘Condor1’ alongside Lee Van Dowski broke the Beatport Top 20 earlier this year.
Having also played some of the world’s most iconic clubbing spaces; from Space in Miami, Pacha and Cielo in New York, Blue Marlin in Dubai and Hive in Zürich, not to mention a residency at Pacha Ibiza, Sabb’s stock as a DJ continues to rise indefinitely.
By the end of 2015, Sabb was ranked as one of the highest charted artists of the year on Resident Advisor, perfectly setting the scene for a landmark year in 2016. And with a packed touring schedule, including upcoming gigs at Watergate (Berlin) and Hive (Switzerland), and releases on highly respected labels Moon Harbour, Saved and Circus over the coming months, Sabb looks to further cement his deserved place among electronic music’s elite.
