Primavera Sound has revealed its line-up for 2018. The Barcelona festival has locked down the likes of Björk, Nils Frahm and Jon Hopkins across the four-day program.
Running from 30th May to 2nd June, the event takes place on the Barça beachfront with headliners like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Lorde and Arctic Monkeys’ return to the live circuit after a four-year hiatus. It’s one of the most comprehensive line-ups in the event’s history with over 200 acts performing at the multi-award winning festival.
Mall Grab has been hailed as one of the scene's fastest rising stars and last weekend the fresh-faced Aussie made his Essential Mix debut at just aged 23.
Hailed as the future by the show's presenter Pete Tong, the now London-based producer delivered a two-hour mix crammed full of his signature lo-fi cuts along with plenty of his own edits.
2017 has been a huge year for the DJ and producer and 2018 looks like it could be even bigger for Jordan Alexander.
Discogs has shared details of the top 25 best-selling records tagged as 'techno' on the site.
While this means some of the list, posted via the Discogs blog, definitely aren't what you'd refer to as techno (Mr. Oizo's 'Flat Bear', for example), the likes of Ben Klock's 2009 effort 'Before One', and Jeff Mills' 'Kat Moda' EP, which features classic track 'The Bells', are included.
Soundwave Festival in Croatia has added the final names to its bill, including drum & bass don Roni Size and fast-rising Aussie house star, Mall Grab.

Soundwave's line-up was already teeming with eclectic wonders too, with Gilles Peterson, Horse Meat Disco, Yussef Kamaal, Egyptian Lover, MNDSGN and the legendary Roy Ayers all set to perform.
