“In 2001 I went to a Mark Knopfler concert in Badalona with my brother. In the middle of a song the sound system broke and you could not hear the band any more but the music continued with 20.000 people singing a capella. I get goosebumps thinking about it!”

about Money for Nothing by Dire Straits

Salvador Gurrera

“Oxygene was one of the first albums by Jean Michel Jarre and one of the references of the origins of electronic music. To me this is a masterpiece made up of 6 inseparable tracks. Being able to attend the performance of the album live in a small theatre in Paris in December 2007 was something very special! I always remember that concert!”

“It’s neither a rock album, nor a record for dancing to. It sounds meticulous and spontaneous at the same time. Nocturnal but warm. Either you’re in a plane thousands of feet in the air or locked in your bedroom, Psychic makes perfect sense. A modern classic!”

“I met The Beatles when I was very young thanks to my Dad who is a really big fan of the band since his youth. From that moment, I started to follow them too and love each of their songs and lyrics. In my opinion, the White Album is one of the best albums of the band and Blackbird is the song with which my dad opened the doors to me to the Beatles’ world.”

This Album takes me back to the past when I was 14-15 years old and I spent my summers in a seaside town. These songs marked me a crucial period of time and guided me to make my dreams come true. I especially enjoy the songs Otherside and Californication that always remind me an endless summer.

“This album forces the listener to reflect upon who they are and why they are here. Although its bizarre intensity doesn’t make for an easy listen, there is something weirdly comforting about the fact that it feels like a quaint relic from a different time. It takes me back to my days living in Paris, contemplating life”

about Tempel by Colour Haze

Moritz Phleps

Client Manager

“Renowned as one of the most influential records in east coast hip-hop history, this album with dark-evocative yet hard beats combined with rough but honest narratives is one of the most uncompromising and realest production works ever. I like how the interpreters deal with difficult situations and generate positive energy out of them.”

about The Infamous by Mobb Deep

Juan Nuñez Aragon

Project Manager

“They transformed the synthetic sounds of electronic music in something that went mainstream and opened the doors for a new universe. This album showed the arrangements that synth pop bands would use for the next decades. Who said the machines did not have a soul?”

about Awesome Wave by Alt-J


Paco Cabrera

about Discovery by Daft Punk

Pilar Callau Usón

VP of TV and Audiovisuals

“I discovered this album unexpectedly during my years in high school, being totally different from the music I liked. And it became part of my early youth. I guess that the broken down tempo and the combination of sensuality, fragility and darkness it transmits caught me. After so many years and so many listenings, I still enjoy it whenever I listen to it.”

about Portishead (1997) by Portishead

Eva Avellaneda

“I moved to Berlin only because of the German electronic music. I think Black Noise is good example of it and it´s one of my most precious albums. Earthbound, dark, chaotic, magic. A beautiful piece of minimal techno to listen to on loop.”

About Black Noise, by Pantha Du Prince

Álvaro García

“The lyrics are written directly from feelings, telling in every song a deep story. It also reminds me of good old times, in extraordinary company with old friends at concerts. When music makes you feel, then it’s a good music and this album is exactly what it does.”

about Negociando Gasolina by La Fuga

“When I knew that this beautiful song being broadcasted over and over on the radio was performed by an ex-Beatle, it became clear to me that I had to own the whole disc.

about Cloud Nine by George Harrison

Recordings team

Francisco Javier Brines García

Head of Recordings IT

“When I first checked out this album, I was 16 year old. I remember walking down the streets of Primado Reig Avenue in Valencia with my baggy jeans, hearing tight raps from Mos with his rude accent. Those dope underground beats banging my head made me feel as if I was walking down Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn! That Rawkus-flavoured album was real Hip Hop!”

about Black On Both Sides by Mos Def

Enric Pou

“Once, a friend of mine gave me a LP and said: “Just listen, relax and let yourself go”. Since then I love how this album gets my attention. I really recommend to listen to it in a dark room. Silence, chords and sound waves.”

about Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd

Marco Piffanelli

Recordings IT Engineer

“It’s incredible how it’s just two of them and they sound so powerful! I love how Jack plays the guitar: so dirty and, at the same time, so clean. The way he uses the pedal “Whammy” is crazy! Believe me, listen to the “Ball and Biscuit” solos: they are amazing!”

about Beautiful Freak by Eels

Martina Bernardi

Client Manager, Broadcast

This album was a gift my brother gave to me when I was a child and it marked me forever, introducing a universe of sounds and emotions into my life.”

about A Day at the Races by Queen

Jose Torrabadella

VP of Broadcast

“I discovered it in my teenage years through the SingStar my sister had got for Christmas. It led me to buy my first electric guitar and to spend entire afternoons playing every riff and solo in the album. The Darkness reminded me of classic rock bands such as Queen or AC/DC but with a fresh, modern vibe that instantly captivated me. It may not be the best album in the history of music but for me it meant the discovery of new musical horizons.”

about Permission to Land by The Darkness

Ramon Xuriguera Albareda

Software Developer

“After repeatedly listening to this album for a few months, I was thrilled to see the band at a prominent music festival. At the time I was unaware that Rhye’s singer is in fact Mike Milosh, so it was a true revelation when he started singing. I was in awe from the very first song.”

about Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins

Oriol Romaní

Software Developer

“I discovered this album not a long time ago thanks to one of the musicians I admire the most. It is a set of Moog compositions to be played for growing plants and, as weird as it sounds, it is an amazing piece of music. It also reminds me of the great times we spent together in a recording studio we set up on a friend’s house living room, where we were playing this album to wake up.”

about Mother Earth’s Plantasia by Mort Garson

Clara Ayxandri

Client Manager, Broadcast

“This is the very first record I put on. I didn’t understand the lyrics at that time but I used to dance to it a lot. Years later (after discovering all LPs have a B side) I fell in love with the whole album. Delightful and inspiring, it made me discover Bowie and my interest for music grew from then. Besides that, I believe it is an album for all year round, with its loop of the rise and fall perfect at any time and in any place.”

about The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars by David Bowie

Kasia Odoj

One day, I saw U2′s Achtung Baby on sales, took my pocket money and bought it for a mere 6 EUR.

Iván Díaz

“When I was in high school, in the 90s, a friend let me listen to his headphones about a rock song from another era. “This is from the 70’s” he told me. The song was Stairway to heaven.

Tristan Hunt

about Music For The Jilted Generation by The Prodigy

Mili Cuckic

Venues BizDev Manager

“This album is such a wonderful blend of jazz, acoustics, country and a melancholic yet romantic vocals by Norah. This type of slow beat music is not necessarily always in match with my dynamic personality, but the album when listened in its entirety, just brings me to a peaceful (and) still playful atmosphere. I relax listening to her voice, to emotions that come out of the lyrics and it also sometimes takes me back to my teenage years and falling in love”

about Come Away With Me by Norah Jones

Elizabeth Muirhead

VP of Venues

“I found it in the discount section of the HMV on Oxford Street, London, for about £7. I bought it because the guys reminded me of photos of my Dad in the 60s. I recognised ‘All Right Now’ when I played it at home and loved every song on the album. In that moment I realised I was probably born in the wrong decade.”

about All Right Now by Free

Edgar Álvarez

Head of Venues Recordings

“Since I first heard “Diversité” (their first album) in an improvised trip with my flatmates, I thought Dub Inc provided the perfect mixture of Reggae and Dub, two music styles I enjoyed but I had never listened to them together. This group gets to combine these two with some other styles, such as dancehall, ska or hip-hop, always making references to their French-Algerian origins”

about Paradise by Dub Inc

Andrés Satué

about Demiurge by Emptyset

Meritxell Arbiol

Venues Recordings Intern

“I can not explain why I love this artist, is because of the way that I perceive his messages. For me, each word of his songs fits perfectly.

“It’s not just about the music, it means a lot to me. The album’s name refers to the city of Sarajevo where my whole family comes from, and was released in 1984 (Sarajevo was then at its peak with the winter olympic games, few years before war). To me it represents an era and a country that are gone forever, that I never knew, but that I somehow still cherish.”

“Berlin Calling is the first movie my colleagues made me watch when I started working in the electronic music industry. I fell in love with the soundtrack.
The album was originally released on Ellen Allien’s label BPitch Control. Although it got so popular that some purists might consider it as ‘mainstream’, it is still for me a reference in terms of minimal, melodic techno.”

Guillem Cortés

“It is difficult to express why, maybe because the entire album is a continuous piece of music, maybe for its philosophical lyrics, the synthetizer, the avant-garde sounds or the social criticism.

“In the 90’s it was ‘Vitalogy’ by Pearl Jam and ‘Born In The U.S.A.’ by Bruce Springsteen in the 80’s. However a decade earlier it was Peret and his self-title album release in 72, and that without knowing the Barcelona connection. Tracks such as ‘Tracatrá’ and ‘Si Yo Fuera Rico’, have stayed with me all this time, bringing back memories of my grandma playing it on the radiola.”
