Paolo Ferrara is resident artist at HEX
Based in Barcelona, this Italian artist has largely demonstrated his unique musical style: a mix of mental, disturbing melodies and powerful Techno. His previous aka PØLI comes from the polygon, a geometric figure with multiple sides that represents the eclecticism of his music.
He has a Techno stamp, but he is not a purist and his sets always carry different influences coming from House, Detroit, Dance, Dub, Trance and 80’s music.
Paolo Ferrara is well known for his strong closings, always ending with a great energy. Since his first performance and success at HEX, he has also performed at some of the best clubs and festivals in Barcelona and Europe, such as DGTL, Brunch-In the Park, Input, Razzmatazz, Amnesia, Nitsa, Moog, Laut, and many more. He has played alongside great international DJ’s like Ben Klock, Oscar Mulero, Jeff Mills, Ellen Allien, Marcel Dettmann, Len Faki, Chris Liebing, Ben Sims, DVS1, I Hate Models, Dax J, Rebekah, Paula Temple, Blawan, just to name a few.
In 2014 he founded the Techno movement HEX with his partner Lorenzo Raganzini, quickly becoming a referent in Spain and now planning its expansion all around Europe. In 2015, Paolo Ferrara was awarded the Best DJ Revelation prize by Barnabeats in Barcelona. 2019 was the year where Lorenzo Raganzini and him launched their record label: HEX Recordings, through a first release on vinyl, composed by 4 originals from them and various remixes coming from a very talented roster of international Techno artists including Regal, Zanias, VSK, Insolate and many more.
