With the full lineup now revealed, and day splits announced, we've got a pretty good idea as to what the second edition of Spanish festival Sun & Snow is going to sound like this year.
So to get in the mood for the party in the Sierra Nevada mountains that is taking place from 18-20 April, we've selected a few of our favourite mixes from DJs on this year's lineup.
Jennifer Cardini - BAR Radio
The French DJ (who we were lucky enough to interview a few months back) is superb behind the decks, and for our money she still doesn't get quite the plaudits she deserves despite being a hugely respected figure in the scene
Her passion for new-wave and 80s synthpop is apparent in this mix, the self-confessed Depeche Mode fanatic drawing heavily from these styles to combine with elements of disco and acid house and give it all an air of the cinematic.
Axel Boman - Phonica Mix
If you say the words 'Swedish' and 'house' next to one another, it brings to mind a style of music that is hugely removed from what Axel Boman is all about. Firmly focused on the dancefloor, and never one to take himself too seriously, the DJ and producer shows in this mix why he's so much fun to see play.
DVS1 – Dekmantel Podcast
Just as a quick disclaimer, if you're not au fait with what veteran DJ and producer DVS1 is all about, this mix might give you the wrong impression. Usually a purveyor of fierce and unrelenting techno, and not someone who readily records mixes to put online, he displays his versatility here by offering up a more house-leaning mix for the folks at Dekmantel. It might not be the sort of thing you'll hear at the festival, but it's still great.
Matrixxman - Dekmantel Podcast
Another DJ, another Dekmantel Podcast. This time, however, the harder-hitting techno stylings are much more prevalent.
Miguel Payda – Metrica Stories
Beyond the headliners, there is plenty more on offer at the festival, and one thing that caught our eye is the Metrica showcase. For the first of their 'Metrica Stories' podcasts, founder and resident Miguel Payda goes on a deep and atmospheric journey into the sort of sounds that define the label.
