pional When Love Hurts (4-track 140g vinyl 12", £8.75)label: Counter Records
ĎWhen Love Hurtsí is not only Pionalís most personal work to date but also his best, following releases on Hivern Discs, Young Turks and Permanent Vacation. Inspired by love and loss, this is frequent John Talabot collaborator Pional adding pop melodies and his own vocals to his deep, compulsive electronics. The celebrated Empress Of also provides a startling epilogue to this brilliant EP. Vinyl with reverse board sleeve and 3mm spine. Mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering. Bespoke artwork by Manuel Donada. Pional aka Miguel Barros is a multi-instrumentalist, empyrean vocalist, top-drawer DJ, composer and producer. He was at one time Spainís best kept electronic underground secret. Previous releases as both Pional and Lost Scripts (a collaboration with close confidant John Talabot) via Talabotís Hivern Discs, Young Turks and Munichís Permanent Vacation. Pional is an integral part of John Talabotís live show, which featured prominently in Resident Advisorís Top 20 Live Acts of 2012. Pional has remixed many contemporaries, including Little Dragon, Rosie Lowe, Jessie Ware, Empress Of and Jamie xx..
