Superfónicos – Renaceré

The people who have everything are the most likely to lose it all. Those who have nothing not only have to acquire what it is that they need but also, if they’ve acquired the wisdom for it, periodically shed away some of the weight of what they’ve picked up along the way. This is nothing new. It is how the world has worked forever. Knowing this makes things somewhat easier. 

If you’ve been born into a rich family in a rich city, blessed with the richness that a complete bill of health will provide, you should consider leaving it all behind. Travel the world! Live rough for a while! Learn to forget your name, your language, and your customs. That won’t guarantee answers, but it will prepare you to receive them should those come to find you!

Superfónicos’s “Renaceré” isn’t just world music. It’s the words, the grooves, the sounds, and the philosophy from a particular place in this great, wonderful world. The music is inspired by the dance music of Colombia. The philosophy behind it is one that people from Latin America often embrace – the idea of becoming part of it all so that one day you may be reborn, figuratively and, perhaps, literally too. Those are ideas and things that might pass you by if you only sit still. I encourage you to travel and to search!


Photay – Derecho

Few people are more self-obsessed than artists. There’s no mirror that an artist didn’t fall in love with and no fan that an artist ever got tired of hearing it. And, while ego certainly played a part in creating legacies, it can also prove detrimental. It makes it so that the most self-obsessed people can’t stop from proving themselves. 

Great drummers will often opt to use drum machines and looped grooves. They know they wouldn’t be able to play such a thing. It’s usually not a matter of lacking technique. Great drummers can’t help themselves from overplaying. They get bored. The same can be said about guitarists, piano players, singers, etc. Sometimes, to let the audience dream along, artists need to put themselves last. 

Photay’s “Derecho” is a wonderful piece of electronic music not simply because it takes away the human touch from the music being made but especially because it uses cold blocks of sound to create a hyper-real world. It’s marvelously imaginative, it contains tones of incredible warmth, and it couldn’t be played by regular musicians. They’d just get bored and start playing solos.
