Poky comes from the Central Plateau. "Radikal", a very popular disco for all the people living in the central areas of Spain, is located in a small town in the province of Toledo. "Radikal" gathers thousands of ravers called "bakalas" every weekend, eager to listen to their favourite tunes all night long.

Makina has also managed to find its way to Scotland with a club called Dimensional in Glasgow, which is the same style as in the North-East as it has MC's in the sessions. Dimension (from Latin measured out) is, in essence, the number of degrees of freedom available for movement in a space. ...
