Undo (Gabriel Berlanga) introduces his third album ‘Disconnect’, with ten songs written, recorded and produced during 2015 and 2016.
Behind the conception of the album there is an idea that leads us back to the basis of music: its capability to boost our moods and empower our decisions and roles. Disconnect is a charming long-player that brings electronic music to
whom it belongs: those clubbers and electronic music lovers that surpass hedonism and keep moving on. Connecting and disconnecting, they take care of what’s going on in their world and strive to make it better.
This album is not about any one style or sound in particular. Undo blends different influences using both new and old analogue gear combined with digital plug-ins and FX to create his own recognizable sound. With more than 10 years on the road, the long term Razzmatazz (The Loft and Lolita) resident has played in some of the best clubs and festivals around the globe. He’s one of the leading Catalan tastemakers in dance music and his Dj sets have influenced a generation of clubbers in Spain. His career has seen him releasing via well-respected labels such as Correspondant, Areal, My Favorite Robot and Beachcoma. He has remixed and been remixed by the likes of Paul Kalkbrenner, Agoria, Ellen Allien, Fairmont, Miss Kittin, Kris Menace and Nhar to name a few.
Opening track ‘Disconnect’ finds Undo playing with psychedelic synths and singing shyly: “Life is everything that happens around while watching a screen”. Similar messages continue with the funny, funky and sexy ‘Computer
Friends’. We also hear his vocals with a very different mood on ‘Autómatas’, an electro cut that demands a reaction against the established injustice. “In Spain we saved the Banks with our money while the Banks were throwing people away from their homes. But still a lot of people are voting for the same criminals.”
There are vocals as well on the last track of the album, this time with an epic vocoder. At the end ‘We’ve Got To Fight’. You’ll also find time for escapism and hedonism throughout the album because, after all, we all want to have fun. DJs will likely gravitate towards the unstoppable trance synth of ‘The Arptist’, the chug-techno tension on ‘Acid Prophet’, the shuffled beats and endless harmony of ‘Setembre’ and the dreamy melodies of ‘Interferencias’ and ‘Sunmachine’.
In order to create you need to disconnect, get away from the noise and get close to what really matters: the beat, the harmony and the rhythm.
