Despacio at Sónar 2018

The million dollar soundsystem

By Sergio Pulido 18.05.18

After debuting at the festival in 2014, the sound project of James Murphy and the Deawele brothers of 2manyDj's / Soulwax returns to Sónar by Day.

What was it about? From a great sound system "portable", of great sound quality, designed by the technicians of McIntosh Labs (not to be confused with the laptops of Apple), company that is dedicated to commercialize products of High End audio destined to those that can afford the luxury of owning high sound technology in your own home. For the traveling disco "Despacio" (in Spanish in the original), they have achieved a 360º surround sound designed for a capacity of a thousand people, trying to reproduce the mythical quality of the Paradise Garage system, which set the bar for how it should be the excellence in disco sound. Within this sensorial framework, the djs will perform 8-hour sessions on the 3 days of the festival, where they will play low BPM music (hence the name of the project), within the wide range of disco music and primal house. and soulful. It will be, again, the track for gourmets. You have to spend at least a while to experience it.
