Time Out says

The second day of Sónar by Day brings in acts including El Niño de Elche & Los Voluble, who are back at the festival this year after wowing audiences in 2015, and bringing their new experimental flamenco project that's all about the state of European political borders; Underground Resistance, the most influential collective on Detroit's techno scene, brings their new project, Timeline; El Guincho, one of the most daring musicians in Catalonia comes with his live debut of his third album, 'HiperAsia' (2016), released six years after 'Pop Negro'; the surprising musician from Ghana Ata Kak, who's performing his vibrant mix of African highlife and intense flow hip hop for the first time in Europe; global rhythms and revisited folk with Ethiopian Mikael Seifu as well as Colombian act Las Hermanas; Santigold, who's back in Spain for a double act (see Sónar by Night on Saturday) after nearly a decade away, with a live show full of hits and great stage presence; John Grant, whose latest effort is 2015's 'Grey Tickles, Black Pressure', with his mix of barroque pop and confessional synth pop; the admired and respected Roots Manuva, who's considered one of the most important emcees in the history of British hip hop; the latest in bass music and urban beats of British descent in the form of the audiovisual show from Kode9 (in his first live show), created along with artist and stage designer Lawrence Lek; and Chilean Matias Aguayo, with his tropical techno.
