30drop

Social and cultural context

Post-Olympic Barcelona is bustling with social and cultural movements, many changes that have brought a modern note to the city, opened up new horizons and revealed themselves to the world. Music is one of the most dynamic movements with many new projects, bands and sounds arriving. Electronic music has reached new heights with the opening of clubs such as Nitsa or Syndicate and festivals such as Sonar, which will leave their mark on a whole generation have put the city on the road to unprecedented change and evolution. The once teenager who is now behind the project 30drop was part of the cultural effervescence of the city.

 

Biography

In his formative years, the artist responsible for 30drop discovered new synthetic and electronic sounds that would later influence his work. From the year 1996, his activity as a DJ powered his link with music, focused on Detroit Techno and Techno sounds that held the transgressive references of Birmingham, UK. These impressions saw 30drop magnetise toward an industrial, experimental, noise-based sound, particularly in the mid-2000s.

After a creative pause, 2014 brought his new project, ‘30drop’, at this time his label 30D Records of which he is the Manager and joint  A&R with Angel Molina, was also born.

 

Artistic concept

Using experimentation, 30drop does not create its music merely as the culmination of its concerns but as a channel for expression. The twin ideas of timelessness and multi-dimensionality are always present in the project. The continuous play between light and darkness as the music transmits these concepts truly defines it.

Solid Techno, a repetitive beat, a cosmic melody and syncopated harmonies are all used to create a universe that reflects the endless expansion of outer space and at the same time, introspection; soul, mind, muscle and brain.

 

Why ’30drop’?

An SMPTE timecode is a set of cooperating standards to label individual frames of video or film with a timecode.

Timecodes are added to film, video or audio material, and have also been adapted to synchronize music. They provide a time reference for editing, synchronization and identification.

’30drop’ is the name of the SMPTE timecode used to synchronize audio and image of the old USA black & white analogue TVs in the ages of 50’s and 60’s when the boom of SciFi TV Movies and films arrived at all the Americans houses through television
