Madrid / Spain
(Hivern Discs / Permanent Vacation )
Pional aka Miguel Barros - multi-instrumentalist, empyrean vocalist, top- drawer DJ, composer and producer - was at one time Spain’s best kept electronic underground secret. His prodigious talents came to the fore in 2010 with releases over two years via close confidant John Talabot’s Hivern Discs and Munich’s Permanent Vacation. Sprawling across the washed house and disco spectrum, they traced a line between Moodymann, Matias Aguayo, Caribou and Grizzly Bear. 2012 also saw Pional grace Talabot’s acclaimed debut album "Fin" on the tracks 'Destiny' and 'So Will Be Now' - the latter, another gem in an ever expanding catalogue that has won the approval of James Holden, James Murphy and Tim Sweeney (Beats In Space) to name a few.Not content with success on wax, Pional was an integral part of Talabot’s celebrated live show that opened for The xx and toured the US & Europe, and was also part of the Lethargy Festival in 2013.
Now firmly an electronic mainstay and top- billing DJ Pional will return to Zürich in his own right.
