This month Beat Beneath presents a DJ set from BLD a.k.a. Baldo recorded live at The Loft in his home city of Barcelona on 24th April 2018, exclusive to this show.
His productions draw upon lots of classic techno sounds but still always manage to sound fresh and distinctive; nailing a sound that has plenty depth and atmosphere to get lost in but also driven by a well crafted funk and energy that’s sometimes lacking from the deeper ends of the genre. Unsurprisingly they've appeared on my and many of my favourite DJs' playlists, with the Extended Versions releases on his own BLD Tape Recordings label being particular favourites round here.
He's pretty handy in the booth as well as a DJ and live performer, playing regularly in Barcelona as well as various European and Stateside bookings - check this mix for a fine example of the man in full swing in his home territory!15:00 - 17:00
