Josep Xortó, The Barcelona-Based Musician Making Waves
What is the most unusual request you’ve had?
“Can you play something more danceable?” Actually, that’s a pretty common question I get when I DJ, but I find it very awkward.
What advice would you give to someone who was trying to break into the business?
Go out there, find your path. Don’t stop, be patient, know your part, don’t follow the hype, follow your heart.
If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
I guess I would love to see my father again.
If you could only bring three things to a desert island, what would they be?
A big knife, a super durable lighter and a guide on how to survive in the jungle.
How would you describe your music in 80 characters?
It really depends on the project and the track. If you are only thinking about one style in particular, forget it.
Josep’s collaborated with Carles Congost’s The Congosound to create a catchy Catalan adaptation of a 1980s Sabadell Sound song:
Guitar or vocals? Vocals.
Beer or Wine? Whisky.
London or Barcelona? Barcelona.
Sala Apolo or Sala Razzmatazz? GLOVE PARTY!
Humans or aliens? Humans.
Love or friendship? Both.
