::::::: Soulid Rock Experience CONCERT :::::::
The SOULID project is a result of the coming together of experienced musicians who have played in many other bands in the past. In the early 90s, Quique and Ross played with The Del Hoyo, a groundbreaking band with several record releases and a lengthy trajectory to its name. They worked on an number of formations after that, introducing new members over the years. In 2004, Raúl Márquez joined on guitar and the project was renamed SOULID, and the more recent introduction of Mario on bass completes the current line-up: Quique Barbosa (vocals), Raúl Márquez (guitar), Mario Barbosa (bass) and Julián Ross (drums)
SOULID play exciting and energetic live sets with the aim of giving the audience a good body workout. Live shows are their natural habitat.
SOULID offer a musical journey ranging from the most full-on to the most delicate, performing their own tracks and the odd cover version very much made their own. Their music touches on soul and funk but with the energy of punk and the wildest, most irreverent rock, while maintaining an elegance and their own particular attitude. Other bands that the SOULID members have played with include: The Del Hoyo, Speed Tortugas, Ix, Barranquillos, Space Junx, Acció Directa, Legión, Motosierras, Pop, Preter Racio and more.

SPY DJ (Electroclub) DJ – Barcelona
A well-known DJ in Barcelona’s electronica scene, known for his work in promoting electro for more than two decades. He began Djing in public in 2001 and since then has played his sessions at innumerable national and international venues, as well as at the Electroclub parties he started and that evolved into a collective to eventually become netlabel.
In 2017, Spy created the Útil Records label together with Vema Diodes and María MS for releasing styles including electro, techno and ebm. With four exemplar releases, the label is in a good position, generating general acclaim and positive audience feedback, so continuing in the task of promoting electro and its prized instrument: the vinyl record.
Towards the end of 2019, he released his first album Novo Area under the alias he has always used when composing and producing tracks: The Bandit.
During the pandemic he has continued to DJ at secret location parties and small venues, as well as working on new projects such as Útil Records’ fifth release or collective project Gente Seria Viste Chándal, for which he’s preparing a new release on vinyl.
Melanie Wifi VJ – Barcelona
Carolina Cabrerizo is the inquisitive, multidisciplinary artist to be found behind the Melanie Wifi moniker. For her VJ sets she combines video, collage, glitchart, the contraposition of analogue and digital, and appropriated images that she smears and distorts live in an interaction with sound that leads to a chaotic and suggestive stream of images.
As a visual creator she has collaborated and worked on a range of experiences with visual artists, philosophers, poets, musicians, DJs, and theatre and dance companies. We’ve seen some of her works at Videocapsa (Flux at Centre d’Art Santa Mònica), at the Sound and Visual Fair held at Convent de Sant Agustí, at Hangar with the Hypnagogia project and at Videoex Film Festival, Zürich in the Barcelona Contemporary Authors I & II section.
