It was a great pleasure to finally see Pulshar, a group from Barcelona that I like a lot at a club last week. It was also a greater honour to be able to do some photos of them as well for Resident Advisor even if my camera is not quite up to it.
The duo is made of Pablo Bolivar and Sergio “Aphro” Sainz. Bolivar is a long term survivor of the local scene, releasing an impressive array of techno, ambient and dub flavoured music for almost a decade including many tracks on Barcelona-based Galaktika Recods. His vocal partner Sainz is a designer and was a vocalist in several previous reggae groups. This was their first show of a mini tour to support their album from last year.
“Nospheratu” is probably their signature track while “Dub by the river” gives a sense of Bolivar’s techno side, albeit slowed down and spaced out. My favourite track is “No meditation” which is something of a soundtrack sometimes.
