We know that it is not possible to start 2020 better than with these two new super covers. On the one hand with Anitta, as one of the international stars who is most peeling at this time, and on the other hand the Spanish indie group Carolina Durante that with their music have given a new meaning to the indie music as we knew it.

If you were at our Neo2 25th anniversary party, we will let you know that your may be the part of the pages of this issue. What are you waiting for to discover it?

They do not recognize it, but they are responsible for changing the history of Spanish indie music in the 21st century. Just when we thought that urban music was monopolizing everything and that there was nothing beyond the horizon, this quartet from Madrid arrived and changed the bases of the national indie. With only two Ep’s and a self-titled album behind them, Diego, Juan, Mario and Martín are the present and the future of the national indie. Millions of views on their YouTube videos and continuous sold outs at their concerts.
Recycled J and Ana Sotillo, or what is the same: Jorge Escorial Moreno and Ana Sotillo. A 26-year-old boy from Carabanchel, and a sevillian girl of 24. He, a musician; She, model and stylist. Together they form one of the representative couples of the Madrid urban scene. While Ana prepares for the international market, Jorge officially signs with Universal Music and presents her Recy Tour in Spain as of February: Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and Valencia. Music and fashion never loved each other so much.
He has featured songs with Madonna, Caetano Veloso, Snoop Doog, J Balvin, Maluma, Diplo, Major Lazer, Rita Ora, Becky G ... And suddenly, on a Sunday at 9:30 in the morning, he is with us in Madrid. We were afraid it would be delayed, or not come. In the early hours we gossip their stories from the IG. We saw that he had been partying all night. But, like a clock, at half past 9, he arrives at the set. We had been told that she was super professional, what we did not know was that she is also super nice. We left the interview for last. Of course, the second subtle yawn we let her go.
It has been 25 years since the first issue of Neo2 was released. A quarter century. In 1994, the same year that Supreme came into the world. They were the beginnings of the digital revolution and the “Do It Yourself” culture, Madrid version. What we have learned is that everything is a cyclic transformation. That's life. And we have to celebrate it. With a party? Of Course, and many friends. We have the sponsorship of Opel Corsa, Havana Club and Zalando and the collaboration of Heineken®, Desperados, Sala Shôko, Jamones Beher, Panther Juice & Sandwich, Crudo Madrid and Burger King.
Marius Sperlich is one of them. He is 28 years old and trained in communication and design in Hamburg. He currently lives in Berlin, where he also has his personal studio. He uses parts of the human body as the setting for his photographs, where small miniature characters perform all kinds of tasks. Its visceral close-ups require a deep look from the viewer and become a real disturbing bombardment of stimulation.

We have learned all the latest from Recycled J and Ana Sotillo, Quim Gutierrez and Clara Lago, We have interviewed the artist Marius Sperlich and have met new emerging groups such as Fat White Family and Alex G (Sandy).
