Tottie talks to Yukimi Nagano at Sónar Festival 2017

Yukimi Nagano

Little Dragon are no strangers to Sonar Festival. Having previously performed twice at Sonar by Day, this year 125,000 festival-goers would get the chance to see their unique and undeniable style of electronic pop at Sonar by Night and for many of us it would be the first time seeing them perform their fifth studio album ‘Season High’ released earlier this year.

Friday night DJ and presenter on Track Family Radio, Tottie, caught up with Yukimi Nagano right before their performance to talk about her personal experiences working in electronic music. “I have always had a lot of support with the guys and the band, it’s definitely harder going it alone as a woman in the industry.We also find out how she prepares for live shows and her top 3 female artists of all time.

Her advice to girls trying to break it into the music industry, “Dont be intimidated by anyone, the sky’s the limit“. So on that solid piece of advise, get out there and show them who’s boss ladies.

This year Barcelona City FM presenters D.N.S & Tottie reported at Sonar Festival on a topic very close to their hearts; bridging the gender gap in electronic music and tech culture and talking exclusively to female artists performing at Sonar Festival 2017 – #WomenInSonar2017.

Catch up on all the interviews on the Barcelona City FM Facebook page and YouTube channel featuring some of the fantastic female artists who performed at Sonar Festival and Sonar+D this year.

BarcelonaCityFM Presents: INK PROJECT + more

This Friday Barcelona City FM take the studio uptown in a move to kick-start your weekend with the first in a series of ‘Barcelona City FM presents’ events. To break it down we’ll be hosting an all star line-up in association with ArtSpace Barcelona to get the head nodding and shoes shuffling, taking you from the urban sounds of 90’s Hip-Hop and upwards to the boogy-licious sounds of Disco, House and Techno.

Leading the charge for the night will be Track Family who invite Columian born, Barcelona based music producer and Albeton wizz, Blanali Bacm onto the show.

Taking the reins from there will be Barcelona-based Dj/producer Phillipino (Raw Format/UK) who comes from a musical background of turntablism, breakbeats and all things sample based but is now often found spinning house music of a similar ilk having gone on a search for more lively, dance inspiring records.

Bringing the full live element to the event, LDN/BCN based electro/soul due Ink Project are back in Barcelona. Hailing for London, Jez Lloyd and Melanie Dymond have toured across Europe, played various venues and festivals including Sonar Festival and the Jazz Refound Festival, curated by Ninja Tune, supporting Dorian Concept and Afrika Bambaata. Having recently just finished a UK tour with Dreadzone, Ink Project’s current live show features an intoxicating, modern mix of live beats, bass, keyboard, fx, theremin and vocals. Their last two albums featured heavily across the blogosphere as well as gaining radioplay from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Nemone, Don Letts, NME Radio, Red Bull Music Academy and The British Council’s Selector Show.
