The ten adjectives Riccardo Paffeti chooses to summarise his musical style tells you all you need to know about the rising Italian DJ and Producer: “Groovy, sexy, soulful, funky, smooth, deep, driving, warm, emotional & Italian”. In recent years, the artist has become an established name on the international House scene, thanks to his distinctive sound that draws influences from funk, soul, disco setting dance-floors alight. With major releases on some of the scene’s most referential labels, Classic Music Co and Toy Tonics, and commonly featuring alongside other greats such as Demuja, Bellaire, Adryiano and Harrison BDP, the Italian artist is quickly becoming an underground legend for all those who really appreciate true groove. Not to be missed.
▂▂▂ VIRGINIE ▂▂▂
Virginie, the vinyl-queen, returns to D.R.O.P with her sexy groove. Expect an exquisite musical selection which fuses Soul, Funk, House, Disco and Afrobeat: this is bold, cheeky music that oozes passion and is guaranteed to get you dancing.
The Venezuelan-born DJ spent her formative years in 90s New York; it is here she refined her unique musical style. She has played at renowned festivals both internationally and nationally (DGTL, Primavera Sound, Sónar, SoundEat, Down by the Laituru, Cruilla Fest) as well as consistently appearing at Barcelona's top music venues (Soho House, Marula Café, Razzmatazz). Tune in to ‘Vibe Delicious’ on CC Radio to hear the quality of her music selection.
▂▂▂JANA LA FONTAINE▂▂▂
Jana La Fontaine returns to D.R.O.P after a killer session at our sold out LAB event in June. Despite her recent arrival on the electronic music scene, her meticulous selection and seamless transitions between tracks produce refined and intense sets that leave their mark on her audience. Her style is characterised by a complex blend of melodic sounds and darker beats. Prepare to be spellbound by her positive and dynamic energy that flows onto the dance floor.
▂▂▂ BONNY SOUL ▂▂▂
Manchester-born Bonny Soul has one mission: to get the people dancing. The selector and co-founder of D.R.O.P Barcelona eludes any one genre in favour of feel-good grooves, be it new or old, obscure or popular. If Beniso brings bass then Bonny Soul brings funk: expect to hear disco, afrobeat, house, jazz and funk and house from across the globe and across the decades woven together to create seriously danceable journeys. In short, if it puts a smile on your face and has you asking 'what is this tune?!', she'll play it.
