Anne Gillis
Visual artist, composer, performer, Manon Anne Gillis lives and works in Paris. A legendary figure whose music consists of generally short tracks constructed from looped sound samples, mostly from found objects, and above all her own voice, which purrs, plays with silence and growls.

AMIGA is the nickname of Josep Comas, an artist from Barcelona who, after several years in the service of pop music, decided, in an act of artistic sincerity, to explore his more contemplative and exotic side, bringing together years of experience as a studio musician, sound engineer and producer in a single concept. Kind, serene, genderless and faceless, AMIGA is an entity that does not show its face, as it only exists at the moment it steps on stage to show itself. Like a mystical apparition or an encounter with a solitary animal in the depths of the sea.

Fleeing from restrictive labels and in constant search of an ever-stricter identity, his music leaves us irrevocably with shades of his closest influences such as Ryuichi Sakamoto, Aphex Twin, Johann Johannsson, Underworld, Claude Debussy or Brian Eno. His first published work is the original soundtrack for Laura Sisteró’s documentary Tolyatti Adrift, which won the award for Best Original Score at the Thinline Fest international festival in Texas. He is currently recording his first LP, BANGBABALAS, which will be released in early 2024.

SN Systema
SN Systema is a producer from La Rioja based in Madrid. His music is characterised by a meticulous sound halfway between urban genres and post-club, with glitch textures assembled into pop structures. His music is also influenced by dancehall, reggaeton, trance, southern rap and flamenco, among others.

In 2021, he released his first release as SN Systema, entitled Perreo de la Jungla, in which he deconstructs two reggaeton hits by reversing them with breaks. In 2022 he released his single I’m hot with ABBY 3000, the track Si te Pillo on the Noise Pollution label and a remix of Sometimes It’s hard for the EP2 project of the Danish Hedo Hydr8. In 2023 he collaborated on Hadren’s remix album with his version of White Wet Noise and on Madrid producer Lejía’s EP Pertex. This year he also debuted his live show, performing at Human Razzmatazz (Barcelona), Siroco (Madrid), Home Club (Madrid), Radar (Vigo) and FOC (Barcelona).

He is currently preparing his first full-length as a producer, Te llamo cuando llegue, a mixtape in which he collaborates with artists and producers from the emerging national scene, such as Megane Mercury, Vince Aloé, ABBY 300, La Yeezi, Rumbler and DÆMON. Besides showing a solid sonic identity of SN Systema, the project narrates the chapters of a frustrated love story lived by a boy who has just arrived in the big city, spun through sketches in the format of calls and whatsapp audios, interpreted by the actress Mirela Balić.
