Local Bands: Citrus Dude Inc.

Citrus Dude Inc. is born out of a bedroom, where two friends spent their evenings singing and improvising rhymes. The mix of hip-hop, funk, blues, soul and electronics from this duo based in Barcelona transmit nothing but good vibes.

Després de quatre dècades engollint art, el febrer del 2014 David Martínez va emprendre un camí que es va iniciar treient la pols a una guitarra que portava massa anys en un traster i escrivint les primeres notes de ‘Breathing Under The Ocean’. El febrer del 2017, aquest camí ha arribat al final de la seva primera etapa amb la publicació del seu àlbum debut, ‘The Art Of Self Boycott’. Aquesta nit a La2 de l’Apolo.
