Pional

Info 

Pional aka Miguel Barros is probably Spain’s best-kept secret when it gets to electronic music production. This young multi-instrumentalist that compulsively colours his tracks with his own vocals, first burst into the scene with a 12” on the Barcelona-based Hivern Discs, the label from his friend, the infamous John Talabot, unveiling a slo-mo disco anthem –“A Moot Point”- that aroused great interest.
His last reference for the label, the unique house gem “We Have Been Waiting For You” proves, this producer is one of the talents to follow and already got championed from people like James Holden and Erol Alkan.

Handcrafting a sound that explores house, deep textures or kraut influences relentlessly getting a special treatment, Pional’s three track “Last House On The Left EP“ for Permanent Vacation shows the great quality of this young producer, with his influences ranging from Moodymann to Matias Aguayo, from Caribou to Grizzly Bear.

XLR8R Podcast 361: Pional

XLR8R Podcast 361: Pional
27.09.2014

Pional recently recorded a podcast for XLR8R;

As one might expect, Pional's penchant for drawn-out melodies and loosely Balearic sounds makes Talabot an obvious comparison, but Barros' work has always been marked with a subtly poppier flair. That holds true here, as his mix is largely a collection of melody-driven, slow-burning house, but several tracks include catchy synth riffs and vocal passages. It's tempting to call it "indie," but it's more that Pional is simply an artist who's balancing his passion for the dancefloor with his love of a good pop song. It's a tricky balancing act to pull off, but at least for now, he's walking the line very effectively.

Tracklist:
01 Andrea Sartori ­"Gran Prix (Bonus Beats)" (Slow Motion)
02 Miss Kittin "What to Wear (SPN Instrumental Remix)" (W2W)
03 JT ­"Somewhere Close"
04 Pional ­"It's All Over (Pional's Fosc Version)" (Hivern Discs)
05 Deadboy "Return" (Numbers)
06 Jesse Bru "Under the Night (Exercise One Remix)" (We Have Friends)
07 Floating Points ­"Sparkling Controversy" (Eglo)
08 Pional ­"Rhyalovee"
09 Boreal "Canopy Target" (Forbidden Planet)
10 Genius of Time "Juno Jam" (Running Back)
11 The Knife ­"Silent Shout (Shaken-Up Version)" (Rabid)
12 Neinzer ­"Ecclesiastical" (Yumé)
13 Real Lies­ "North Circular" (Marathon Artists)
14 Ess O Ess ­"Re-Enter (Man Power Remix)" (Ene)
15 Unknown "Unknown"

New video from Pional

New video from Pional
05.08.2014

"Arriving as the first video for a release on John Talabot’s Barcelona-based record label Hivern Discs, the dramatic party-gone-wrong animation for "It's All Over" by Pional was inspired by a documentary on Spanish youth culture in the early 90s.
Directorial duo Manson built the four-minute video around Ruta Destroy, a documentary which depicts the early days of electronic music and its effect on youth culture in Valencia. For the flickering video, the team edited 2000 images together, printed each frame, applied water-colours, scanned them and then re-edited them all together.

This new video celebrates a forthcoming remix package for "It's All Over", which includes a "stripped" new take from the usually expansive Talabot, and one from Belgium's Locked Groove."

Pional will release a new solo EP on Young Turks today.

Perhaps best known for his collaborative work with John Talabot on the tracks 'Destiny' and 'So Will Be Now', Pional is now returning to his own productions. His new 'Invisible Amenaza EP' will be on cult label Young Turks, and collects four tracks of his signature melancholic pop vocals and slow disco-influenced house jams. Translating as ‘invisible threat’, it showcases his taste for dark nostalgic sounds and a unique ear for melody on his vocal-led pieces.
