After the first batch of exclusive sessions we presented last week -featuring Flux Pavilion, Brodinski, Alizzz, BFlecha, MØ and L.I.E.S.-, this list adds 10 more sets from artists in the line-up of Sónar 2014 who have created mixes or tracklists specifically for the festival.

Pretty Lights
The young and talented American producer has dedicated one of his mixes in The Hot Sh * t series to the festival, in which his deep voice presents tracks from Dâm Funk, Massive Attack, Tokimonsta, Stwo, Bonobo, Caribou and Spain's Vallès, plus several of his own tracks.

Ryan Hemsworth
Hemsworth is in love with the beats of hip hop, slow grime and the latest generation of r&b, and on this 50-minute mixtape he has compiled 15 of his current favourite tracks, which have all emerged from the underground. Helium vocals, neon synths, advanced rhythms and new jewels ready to be discovered.

Spoek Mathambo
The Soweto-based producer and musician, who is a star in his own country, gives us a spectacular session over an hour long, which is the perfect gateway to the lush South African scene, entitled "Future Sound of Mzansi". He also starts off with a track from Fantasma, the project he is working on with other outstanding South African musicians, which he will be presenting at Sónar by Day.

Pau Roca
One hour and eight minutes of pure uncut house and funk. In this set, Roca shows why he is already widely respected despite his youth: style, knowledge and technology are the foundations for a mix that will delight any lover of the warmest and grooviest dance music. He includes a track from Todd Terje and a couple of unreleased titles, which is just as it should be.

The South African artist has created this Arc-Eyes Mix entirely with his own material: tracks, edits, remixes and unreleased music, providing an insight of what we will be able to hear in his set on Saturday 14 at Sónar by Night (SonarCar).

Kresy shows us skill and exquisite taste in this high precision mix with various gems of disco groove and house from all eras, combining classics like Derrick Carter with young talents such as Asturia's Ju et Colette.

DJ Nigga Fox
In this mix, the Lisbon-based Angolan dj blends genres with African roots and the sounds of the Lisbon ghetto, taking kuduro as the starting pointand including also little known and very exciting sounds like tarrachinha and kizomba. Warm and very tasty.

The experienced and respected Barcelona dj shows his class and knowledge in this mix in which he travels from freshly minted hip hop to contemporary soul, with stops at modern funk and deep house. Class.

Mr. K!
Renowned for his wild mash-ups and mixes, in this session Barcelona's Mr. K! shows another facet of his work on the decks with an elegant mix, marked by deep house tones and topped off with "Last Time" by Moderat.

Eme DJ
The mix by Galicia's Marta Fierro for Sónar shows her penchant for catchy melodies and vocals - aspects that usually define her sessions and that are bound to be present in the set she will be playing at SonarCar on Friday 13. One of the tracks in her mix matches one chosen also by DJ2D2: Janet Jackson's "If" remixed by Kaytranada.
