For the moment, no cold comes to Barcelona. What is still here is a lot of first-class electronic music events. The best underground clubs in the Catalan capital did it again. They propose a stellar November, loaded with the best techno, house and some other hard-styles revolution that, probably, will please more than one raver in town. Here we go with the best of November in Barcelona.
We said that about some hard-styles revolution because of this. The German Frank Kvitta is a myth among those who enjoyed the golden age of schranz and hard-techno in Spain. His sessions at Florida 135 or in the now-defunct La Cova are unforgettable. On November 14th, he will again command a Barcelona club, in this case, City Hall, to remember old times among lovers of the hardest sounds of the techno genre.
When: Thursday, November 14th Where: City Hall Lineup: Frank Kvitta, Carlos Perez and Isabela Clerc
Rampa is one of the best producers of the melodic house today. His name became great alongside Keinemusik, a project that gave birth along with other greats of the genre such as &ME, Adam Port, Reznik and Monja. This young German will embrace Pacha with his warm and precious atmospheres, always designed for the dance floor.
When: Friday, November 29th Where: Pacha Barcelona Lineup: Rampa, Landikhan and Steve Bimbelan

The visit of Second State’s bosses is always a reason for alarm. The German couple arrives at INPUT (the club with the best sound system in Barcelona) at their most acidic and accelerated moment. Those who love the frantic rhythms of techno and have not yet known this new facet of Pan-Pot, can not miss the opportunity. Slippers, ready to suffer.
When: Saturday, November 30th Where: INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club Lineup: Pan-Pot, Hitch and The Deals
Under Club is one of the biggest references of the techno scene in Argentina. The veteran club has decided to cross the pond to expand its clubbing concept by some of the most important cities of the European movement. And among them, of course, there’s Barcelona. Together with NODE, Under arrives at The Garage of The Bass Valley, possibly the most underground club in town, to present the raw and industrial sound of the Dutch Tripeo together with artists from NODE and Under teams. This is an event that could lay the foundations for a more regular collaboration between rave scenes from two countries far away physically, but close culturally.
When: Friday, November 29th Where: The Garage of The Bass Valley Lineup: Tripeo, Xhei, Mariano Blanco and Dario Duegra
The Loft continues to set the trend. After the visits of stars like Ben Klock, DJ Tennis or Paula Temple, Razzmatazz’s top room continues to tread heavily in November and, on this occasion, features the cornerstone of Running Back, one of the great cult labels of indie-dance, nu-disco and modern house. Gerd Janson was the one who introduced pearls already considered anthems like “Neutron Dance” or “Lille Vals”. His suitcase is always full of secrets. A night for diggers who love soft electronica.
When: Friday, November 22nd Where: Razzmatazz Lineup: Gerd Janson and Baldo
NOM continues to strengthen its commitment to ethnic, restful and delicate electronica. On this occasion, the Dutchman Satori, one of the most eye-catching musicians and live performers on the downtempo scene, will be responsible. His multicultural sound, loaded with nomadic personality and chill-out references, will finally invade the souls of NOM, thirsty for peace turned into music.
When: Saturday, November 23rd Where: Bikini Barcelona Lineup: Satori and more
She smashed the European scene a couple of years ago, but Honey Dijon has been burning dance floors much longer in her native US. Her passion for grooves, lo-fi and house took her from a very young age to clubs and record stores all over Chicago. That’s the city that saw her become what she’s today, an international house DJ and a guarantee of fun, joy and good vibes. Her always interesting selection will do the rest on this great night at Nitsa Club.
When: Friday, November 22nd Where: Sala Apolo Lineup: Honey Dijon and more
The season in Ibiza is over, but that doesn’t mean that the colony doesn’t continue to travel its way around the world. ANTS will once again dye Opium in black and tech-house sounds thanks to its creator, the Swiss Andrea Oliva, and two exceptional guests: the German Matthias Tanzmann and the Chilean Francisco Allendes, who celebrates in 2019 the 10th anniversary of his great hit “Llovizna”.
When: Friday, November 8th Where: Opium Barcelona Lineup: Andrea Oliva, Francisco Allendes and Matthias Tanzmann
Since publishing his edit of DJ Boris’ “Can You Hear Me”, Italian Enrico Sangiuliano has only grown and become bigger. That happened in 2015. For the next 3 years, he was the best-selling techno artist on Beatport. “Moon Rocks”, “Preset Heaven” and “Astral Projection” are just some of his greatest hits, although there are many more. Probably, many of them are still far from being released, although we will be able – for sure – to listen to them exclusively on this great night at INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club. The club’s abysmal Funktion One sound system is already getting ready for what will undoubtedly be the most powerful party of the month of November in Barcelona.
When: Friday, November 22nd Where: INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club Lineup: Enrico Sangiuliano, Hitch and The Deals
