Point Blank travelled to Sonar +D in Barcelona this summer to host two very special sessions, featuring as an official part of the programming at this internationally renowned festival. Finishing the day’s events and bringing in the festival weekend which featured the likes of DJ Shadow and Carl Craig, we sat down with Hot Chip co-founder Joe Goddard. With Joe also one-half of 2 Bears and label head of Greco-Roman, we were honoured to get an exclusive insight into the creative process of one of the UK’s most well-respected electronic artists.
