SonarCar is the one area of Sónar where genres and styles of underground dance collide and careen against one another with joyful abandon. Here you're as likely to hear southern rap as you are dark techno, latin 8-bit rhythms or acid house. In short: just like the bumper cars, on this stage there are no brakes.

Friday: Twisted and polyhedral techno

New trends in techno are given free reign at SonarCar on Friday. Opening the stage, the talented Canary Islander Carreno is LB will be exploring new territory with an IDM set tailored for the dancefloor. Following him will be three names from the UK scene who have each contributed significantly to the dance underground in recent years: Powell- Diagonal Records label boss, and an artist who has introduced industrial and experimental music into the club; the enigmatic duo Paranoid London - whose purist revivalist vision of Acid House and DIY club culture has made them into darlings of the underground, and Randomer - a producer whose series of EP's on LI.E.S., Hemlock, Numbers and Clone speak for themselves.

Following this trio of innovators will be one of the most respected DJs in the contemporary European scene: taking in acid, techno, 80's EBM, minimal wave and electro, Helena Hauff set looks to be a blinder. Next up, prodigious pianist Francesco Tristano will be setting aside his usual instrument in favour of his collection of analogue synths for a live show which will follow the template set out by his techno collaborations with Carl Craig and Moritz Von Oswald. Taking us into the final stretch of the night will be two experts: Life & Death label head Dj Tennis, whose set may take in punk, house, krautrock and disco to spectacular ends, and Roman Flügel, a key figure in the German scene whose visit to Sónar coincides with an especially sweet moment in his career, having just released the excellent 'Happiness is Happening' LP to universal acclaim.

Saturday: trap, new rap and latin beats

Hip hop's offspring step up and take over SonarCar on Saturday, with a strong showing of Spanish artists. Kicking things off, the polifacetic resident of Barcelona's Moog club, DJ Uroz and the Catalan producer Will Blake will start the party with their take on trap beats. Following on, and setting the theme for the rest of the night, UK based DJ collective Southern Hospitality will be bringing a selection of fresh trap, crunk and southern hip hop to the stage, before Spain's much hyped PXXR GVNG take the stage for one of the most anticipated shows of the night.

Picking up the pieces after the Raval collective show will be Dj Detweiler, ithe enigmatic creator of 'flutedrop' and a musical magpie whose sets veer from jpop to future beats, often in the same song. Re-invention is the order of the night, as ¥Eur$Ø, two stalwarts of the national hip hop scene, debut their trap and juke heavy alias. South American club music will also be represented, albeit through the 8 bit chiptune stylings of Meneo, with a live show for which the #NoFilter could have been invented. And if that wasn't fire enough, a closing set by Jersey Club originator Dj Sliink will be sure to push the temperature up even higher than the BPM.
