Hi! !Hola!

Here's another Spaniard talking... What a reunion... Whatever,
Madrid has a nice dance scene, but you can't call it "100% AJ". Clubs as "El
Sol", "Kathmandu" or "Morocco" qualify as AJ as well as many other things:
they dig AJ, slow or funky, one they, the next they turn eclectic and you
find yourself dancing to a great groove that can be French Hip-Hop, Stereo
MC, Dean Martin or a London DJ... You also have spots for techno heads (nice
techno, not Bakalao |-O ) such as the "BaliHai".

Actual music scene in Spain is full of good Hip-Hop and techno
groups, but lacks of purely AJ music.

That's just an opinion. Anyone? Jose C.? I can fight you all... ;-)
