Your Only Friend is the brain child of two of the Barcelona's most respected and active DJ/producers and promoters, Tres Manos (Detour, Om Records, Justified Cause) and Steve Ferrand (Urban Torque, Dessous, Pack Up And Dance). These two veteran DJs/Producers met up in Barcelona at one of the cities infamous “Estate” warehouse parties and immediately became good friends. After many drunken stupors and endless laughs it quickly became apparent that they both shared a unique taste in getting twatted and... Underground House Music.
Though they come from different backgrounds, Tres Manos from the U.S. club and warehouse scene and Steve Ferrand from the U.K. free-party and festival scene, they were both heavily influenced by old Chicago and Detroit house music as well as the U.K.’s early 90’s Deep House sound. What brings them together now is the shared desire to contribute to the House scene by taking it back to its deep, soulful, and gritty roots, but perhaps more importantly to not take any of it too damn seriously!
What follows is a string of collaborations which sees them DJing around the world, organizing underground events throughout Barcelona and in the studio testing each others knowledge of the deep.
With a nod to the past and a firm eye on the future, Your Only Friend Recordings is providing a platform for fresh new talent as well as more established and seasoned producers to release high quality underground house gems. Highly anticipated and with international support from DJs and producers such as Funk D’Void, Andy Cato, Vincenzo, and Joshua IZ to name but a few, expect a broad musical spectrum that transcends genres and is focused solely on quality.
"Barcelona is a city that knows its tunes and these guys are right at the heart of the Barça underground. Whatever the style, when they're on the turntables you know the groove will be proper, locked in, dance floor business. So now they're starting a label, we'd better listen carefully."
