James Taylor Quartet (JTQ) is an absolutely referential British group, promoter of the acid jazz scene. Founded in 1985 by hammond hero -ex founding member of cult band The Prisoners- James Taylor, JTQ have recorded over forty records so far, out of which the first one (Mission Impossible, 1987) meant a real breakthrough in the groove scene. Some of their best-known songs are versions of film soundtracks which they rediscover with their original sound ("Mission Impossible", "Blow Up", "Mrs. Robinson" or "Theme from Starsky & Hutch"…), as well as the vibrant "Love Will Keep Us Together". Pure energy on stage to present the two albums they have released this same year: Picking Up Where We Left Off and Don't Mess With Mr T. Including twelve renditions of Motown classics.

Tulsa, the band led by Basque Miren Iza, is one of the most important and promising groups in the Spanish independent music scene. Their debut, Sólo me has rozado (Subterfuge Records) has been nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards in the Best New Artist and for the MTV European Music Awards (EMA), in the category New Sounds of Europe, to be given out on 1st November in Munich.

The Dewaele brothers, Steven and David Dewaele, along with Stefaan Van Leuven and Inge Flipts make up the band Soulwax. Before 2Many Dj's came about, the group debuted in 1996 with the record Leave The Story Untold (1996) produced by Chris Goss, a springboard to the success they found with their third work Any Minute Now (2004), which combines techno pop, post-rock and electro-punk. The Dewaele brothers, now with 2Many Dj's, fill up the dancefloor with their original and varied sessions, in which they include some of the best tunes in contemporary pop music. In 2002 they started publishing a series of albums entitled "As Heard On Radio Soulwax", inspired by their radio sessions under the same title: in their seven records, they have brought together with enormous talent songs by such disparate artists as Led Zeppelin, The Chemical Brothers or Prince, they are considered the creators of the most famous bootlegs in electronic music, brave enough to mix in their creations Michael Jackson and Prodigy, Nivana and Britney Spears or Beck and Kylie Minogue.

Their most recent record Nite Versions includes new and different remixes of their third work, as well as new compositions and a revision of Daft Punk's "Teachers" , which we will be able to listen to on Saturday 24th at Centro de Arte de La Laboral, followed by a 2 Many Dj's session.

Guitarist Evan Foster and keyboardist NickC met in their teens and have always shared a passion for garage and punk. With The Boss Martians they have achieved a brilliant combination of punk and rock garage which reminds us of The Sonics.


These New Puritans is a British foursome whose most distinctive characteristic is their powerful live performances. His electronic indie rock is influenced by Franz Ferdinand and The Claxons. The young group has managed to find the support of a faithful audience in a few years, and will be releasing their first album: "Beat Pyramid" at the beginning of next year, with the prestigious English record company Dominion. The night will move on to Asturian rock and roll with Helltrip, the winners of the latest demo competition of the 40 Principales radio station.


One of the longest awaited concerts will be Nacho Vegas with Cristina Rosenvinge, which have just released their joint album Verano fatal: a work full of freshness and spontaneity composed in just two weeks. They will play the seven songs of this album (which was recorded in Gijón), as well as some other songs from their previous works. Christina Rosenvinge started her career in the 80's (first with Ella y los neumáticos and later with Álex de la Nuez), and made a name for herself with Christina y Los Subterráneos. Since 1997 she has recorded 5 solo albums, which place her as a reference in the independent pop-rock scene. Nacho Vegas, for his part, has become an absolute icon in the national independent circuit, thanks to his intimistic music in which lyrics are fundamental. He has authored eight solo records, apart from the compilation Canciones Inexplicables (2001-2005), in 2006 he recorded with Enrique Bunbury "El tiempo de las cerezas", an album which also led on to their sharing stage.


Delorean debuted in 2001 with Silhouettes, followed by Delorean. The group has evolved from pop to 80's dance music in their EP The Metropolitan Death. In 2006 they published 'Into the Plateau' (Gssh! Gssh! Records), an album which keeps to this line and adopts a post-punk attitude. They have established himself in the music scene and taken part in the most important summer festivals. The Basque foursome will present their irresistible tunes in a concert which will include their new single As time breaks off.

Asturian duo Chiquita y Chatarra will perform as a cover act for Delorean, after sharing the stage with groups such as Black Lips or Manta Ray. This is a female rock and roll group, full of power and strength. Only two members, bass player and vocalist who deliver exquisite live performances where the audience enjoy a rhythmic, solid and aggresive show.


The Ettes is an American rock group mentored by The White Stripes, with influences from Ramones and Rolling Stones, as well as melodic country and garage rock. Last year they published their first album, Shake the Dust, well-received by critics and audience alike, which has already led on to the publication of their second one. Thanks to their provocative attitude and despite their short career, they already have numerous fans all over the world. A good chance to find out if they are one of this year's hypes or a solid young band.

For their part, The Right Ons started off in 2006 with Rafa Fernández and Ramiro Nieto (Jet Lag) along with Álvaro Guzmán and Juan Rodo.

Their live acts, close to Soul, Rock, Psychedelia and funk with influences from James Brown, Little Barrie, Jon Spencer or Sly and the Family Stones, transport the audience to the atmosphere of a Californian garage club thanks to their rhythm, the strong bass lines and the acid guitar playing.
