The first weekend in March we went to Manresa on a tour of the farm “La Ginebrina”, where we spent a Saturday listening to techno. Under the stars and with bonfires, tracks from Ellen Allien, Gary Beck, Len Faki rang … by a former resident of Razzmatazz,in essence, an indescribable and unbeatable night, just for one thing, the ability to go to Barcelona and make a visit to INSERT, we barely had time, but be worth the effort, so we did.
INSERT is the search for the purest club culture. Simple but very solid, it manage to create an empathic, industrial, engaging and authentic atmosphere. It is set with a very clear philosophy:
About 19:45 pm we crossed the gate separating Barcelona from the world, immersing us in a parallel reality, where smoke and techno, with a large volume very carefully treated, were the protagonists quintessential at Insert.
Javier Audiolux was at the controls of that submarine, making it navigate into a deep techno sound. The film was simple, watts possess your soul and Javier was responsible for directing.
Audioluxmixtures came and went, his speed to the mixtures was not debatable, its sound, track after track increasingly became more powerful, without reaching hardtechno, his line is kept between a clean and pure techno, where a simple clap of 808 doubles energy from a track, to an industrial techno where, with a good set drum and high well panned frequency sounds, it can trap any be present on the place.
This whole journey along the techno sound,had, like a good trip, a couple of stops for breathing. Audiolux the submarine rose from the depths of the ocean to the surface, this ascent was made by a very defined deep house sound, where the game between the kick and the shakers gave another energy to the track.
Finally, after Javier set, James Ruskin started with a compact and very groove techno, both Kicks and basslines. Only we could enjoy 30 minutes of good work as the bus back to the Windy City leaving at 23:30. During this half hour, Ruskin also surprised us with tracks, where UK Garage melodic lines generated a feeling of fresh air to the track, specifically the last topic we had the pleasure of listening, and therefore will always remember, was the artist LONE – RAPID RACER
After the end of this track we put way to Barcelona Nord station, talking about during that magical weekend where technology and civilization had been forgotten, and where INSERT was a big part of this feeling, and remember, the photos on the club, are not permitted.
