The rise of Pional (a.k.a. Miguel Barros) has been a gradual one over the past few years, but 2014 feels like the year in which the Madrid producer has properly stepped into the spotlight. He's long been associated with John Talabot and his Hivern Discs label, and though Barros has been issuing solo work since 2010, including efforts for both Hivern and Permanent Vacation, he was for a long time best known as the "other guy" in Talabot's live show and the man behind the poppy vocal hook on "Destiny. 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.
