“Porto Music Experience” is the slogan coming together with Elétrico, the genuine name of this three-day festival that will take place from July 20th to 22nd at Parque da Pasteleira. In fact, Elétrico really offers a complete musical experience. Two completely opposed genres such as jazz and techno serve to embrace a big amount of styles, such as soul, funk, disco and house.
It is difficult to highlight three or four artists above the rest (and there are still many to be confirmed). Elétrico is cooking a highest level line-up, absolutely irresistible for any lover of those proposals that shun the simple, the usual, and the well-known sounds. The most underground, harsh and demented rhythms will be present with DJs like Nicolas Lutz or Sonja Moonear. Both have been collecting oddities for decades. Attending one of their sets means to discover a lot of new pearls.
But if we talk about collectors, we can’t ignore ZIP. Also known by his real name, Thomas Franzmann, this German DJ has been able to readjust his style over the years. He’s the founder of the legendary Perlon label. He belongs to Berlin old school and he’s been many years on the top of the scene. The hardest proposal (100% techno) is Fumiya Tanaka‘s. Rhythms much more enveloping and agitated will be played by Rhadoo, one of the greatest Romanian microhouse exponents. The merriment will come with Peggy Gou‘s, Call Super‘s and Honey Dijon‘s house music, although the big claim, without doubt, will be Larry Heard‘s live show. Also known as Mr. Fingers, in his day he became great with his hit ‘The Sun Can’t Compare’.
Nightmares On Wax, João Semedo and Joao Maria‘s ensemble are other names already confirmed for this Elétrico‘s very first edition, an eclectic, complete and varied festival that will place Porto city and all northern Portugal at the epicentre of the European electronic music scene during the penultimate weekend of July. For now, the early birds are already sold-out, but three-day tickets are only €45. Impossible not to sign up!
