Isabella’s ‘Audio Exótica’ is a dark house EP littered with breakbeats and hissing hi-hats, harking back to the queer origins of dance music.

MARICAS has been running as a party in Barcelona for the past three years. As a label, it aims to be genre-fluid, spotlighting their own frequent collaborators.
