Andrès Garcìa – Ballad EP | Kalk Pets 18
Kalk Pets 18
Andrès Garcia grew up in Spain and was, like so many artists are, introduced to the miraculous world of music by his grandfather. With guitar, flute and percussion he started to explore his future passion for sound and tones. His creativity and his joy with trying out new things increased with the discovery of synthesizers and computers. Living in Switzerland since the 80ies, he’s now producing electronic tracks for various projects. His diverse sound skills lend themselves perfectly to the resilient dancefloor. In addition to that his music has been variously used as a soundtrack for the theatrical stage.
Andrès is releasing an EP on Kalk Pets featuring three different versions of his track “Ballad”. Now if you’re associating melancholy and a thousand tears with that title, you’ll be taught better by the track itself. For this particular ballad is full of positive energies and sings anything but the blues.
Uwe “Señor Coconut” Schmidt aka Atom polishes the “Ballad”-track with additional beats and insightful words and turns it into a real Disco-Pop wingding: “This Song is not about sex / it’s about music / because music is better than pussy.” The minds are shaking. He has proved his sense for slant humour already before on his album “Liedgut”.
Another potential hit is the Remix by John Keys & Los Updates. “Los Updates” being Jorge Gonzales, who has contributed the vocals. Having played in a popular band called “Los Prisoneros”, he is a celebrated popstar in South America, and, amongst other things, has been participating as a singer in the last album by “Sieg über die Sonne”. A finely lascivious party-mix. John Keys aka Dandy Jack & Andrès Garcia are responsible for the musical part. File under Powerpop and Emotronic.
Playful sounds keeping the stroke of a ping-pong game and sure to keep your body high-spirited.
