It’s been a while since we had so many interesting events in a single month in Madrid. Electronic music continues to grow in the Spanish capital and recover glimpses of those golden days of the genre at the end of the last century. Madrid has always enjoyed a very lively underground scene and, after a few years of slight downturn, it can finally boast of having removed the nostalgia. Xceed, of course, walks together with the city to bring all these musical events to you. It’s the time to pick your favs!

Nicolas Lutz is said to have travelled from Jupiter to Berlin to spread his peculiar musical taste throughout the world. The Uruguayan selector collected rarities from an early age to make them sound among friends but found that many around him didn’t understand his musical tastes. Like so many others, Lutz found his home in Berlin. There, everyone danced to his music. There, he found many more records that captivated him. Nicolas Lutz is one of the most coveted selectors by alternative festivals. His experimentalism when it comes to mixing has turned him into a real pandora’s box that, session after session, continues to make his fans fall in love more and more. And, yes, in April he will be in Goya to steal (once again) the heart of Madrid.
When: Saturday, April 20th Where: Goya Social Club Lineup: Nicolas Lutz, Alvaro Medina and Luks & Abdulla
