The Buenos Aires-based has become a renowned DJ and talented producer who has edited in labels like Quant, Newrhythmic, Animal Farm or Credo and his productions have been played by industry’s top players, such as Oscar Mulero, Rødhåd, Tensal, Kr!z or Cleric, among many others.

For the 3rd time, HEX is ready to take over the biggest and most emblematic club in Barcelona, Razzmatazz, along with a strong ravey lineup.
On the brand’s first showcase in the Spanish capital, we caught up with the Madrid native Kwartz for a little chat after his incredible set, closing the event from 8:30am until 12pm (noon). With a tired but thrilled face on all of us, we chatted with him about new plans on his label Order & Devotion, his recent Asian tour, and much more.

After 3 months of being away from INPUT High Fidelity Dance Club, HEX returned to its home with an stellar guest: Ben Sims.

Located in the Belgian small town of Zwevegem, Voltage Festival takes place in an abandoned coal-fired power plant that’s now a used for public leisure and entertainment.
All 3 stages contained metallic, industrial-looking structures, a perfect setting for the acid, ravey and Techno sounds presented by the artists. The look of the resting areas were along the same lines as the stages, with barrels where you could sit on and take a well-deserved rest from the relentless beats.
For another edition, DGTL Barcelona took place at Parc Del Fòrum, an enormous concrete park on the very limits of the catalan capital. The location could be described as intriguing, labyrinthine and industrial, perfectly fitting the underground Techno style of the artists at the Generator Stage. Shipping crates were placed to delineate the stage and spice things up, something which showed the amount of work the organizers put into the event.
The relentless, thumping drum kicks shot by the massive Funktion-One stacks filled our bodies with the heavy grooves, making the Generator Stage our home for the weekend.
