C.P.I. is the collaborative effort from long-time Hivern Discs operative Marc Piñol, a staple in Barcelona’s underground electronic scene and one of its most revered DJs, and Berlin-based producer and self proclaimed dilettante, Hugo Capablanca who runs his somewhat iconic label Discos Capablanca.

They’re bound by a shared love of ’80s electronica experimentalists, early acid house adopters, mutant techno, trance, Belgian new beat and forward thinking industrial sounds.

With their first Ep ‘El Tunel/ Proceso’ released on 2015 on John Talabot’s imprint, the duo positioned themselves among the most interesting acts of the moment, earning both press and public acclaim with an innovative blend of
their influences and modern production techniques that became immediately distinguishable.

A long production hiatus followed, due to both artists focusing on their individual careers, but 2018 finally saw the sophomore ‘Meine Hand’ and that same year Hugo and Marc worked for months in what will consolidate in
their debut LP this Fall 2019.

Their DJ sets are a constant dialogue between both artists, but far from getting lost in dialectic spaces, a concrete solid rhythmic emerges, equally pleasant to erudite freaks and front line clubbers.
