My name is Mariana Martinez Barba and I am a music journalist and writer based in Los Angeles and Madrid.


I graduated from Occidental College in 2019 with a degree in Sociology. Guided by my thesis research, I am concerned with exploring the intersection between music and public policy, seeing the influence of culture as a social and economic force. 


 With a focus on dance music, I predominantly write on contemporary electronic music scenes and musicians. I also currently host a bilingual podcast, No Boundaries, on LIE Radio.
