Social and cultural context…

The Barcelona of the post-Olympic age is bustling with social and cultural movements that add a modern note and open up new horizons to a city that has revealed itself to the world. Music is one of the most dynamic movements. Many new projects, bands and new sounds have arrived. Electronic music has reached new heights with the opening of clubs such as Nitsa or Syndicate and festivals like Sonar, which will leave their mark on a whole generation and put the city on the road to unprecedented change and evolution.


As an adolescent, the artist responsible for 30drop discovered new synthetic and electronic sounds that would later influence his work. From the year 1996, his activity as a DJ powered his link with music, focused on the Detroit Techno and Techno sounds, with the industrial references of Birmingham, moving toward an industrial, experimental, noise-based sound, particularly in the mid-2000s. After a creative pause and as a DJ, it was not until 2012 that he decided to set up his new project, 30drop, which he eventually did at the end of 2014.

Ideas and artistic concept…

This new project was the outcome of the premises of experimentation in Detroit Techno and the more concise and repetitive European Techno, while also being influenced by a growing interest in the Universe, astrophysics, quantum physics and “new science”.

30drop reflects experiments in the Multiverses Theory that conceives the geometrical replication of our Universe in others, operating in an infinite and parallel fashion over several dimensions.

Solid Techno, a repetitive beat, a cosmic melody and syncopated harmony are all used to create a universe that reflects the endless expansion of outer space and, at the same time, introspection.

The project channels the repetition of Techno music and its sound and textures, incorporating the premise that geometry is part of everything we do.
