Last week I promised you an update from Sonar in Barcelona and never doubt that I am a man of my word! For the uninitiated, Sonar is Europe’s premier electronic music festival. Over time it has grown into a highly respected weekend for music lovers to experience the best in cutting edge music and audiovisual art.

Last Sunday, Windows DJs Darek Mazzone and Deadbeat spun on the roof of the Hotel Pulitzer to a packed house. For those of you who don’t know Deadbeat, he’s Berlin-based Scott Monteith and our favorite music technology junkie.

Darek took a few minutes at Sonar to talk with Scott about why he likes creating with Windows and how Windows 7’s versatility and affordability are opening doors for young, up-and-coming artists to make awesome music (be kind to our video: it’s a music festival and it’s loud so we had to get close for good sound).

 I’m looking forward to bringing more music magic your way. Be sure to follow @winashbrown for the latest.
