I'm loving this guy Oriol right here. While most of you are sleeping, caught up in Dubstep and Boogie craze there's a new breed of artist pushing and fusing the lost genres of Broken Beat, Breaks and Electronic Dance Music.
Of Spanish and Trinidadian heritage, The Barcelona born (but Cambridge based) Oriol expanded his horizons and learnt his craft at London's broken beat related CDR (also home of Floating Points). With lush synths and a truly fresh sound evoking the summertime grooves of 70s soul and mid 80s electro with a twist.
