El Camino de Leda – Remixed / Singles (Folcore Records & Fértil Discos)
First singles taken from the forthcoming album El Camino de Leda Remixed, produced in collab Folcore Records from Barcelona and Fértil Discos from Buenos Aires.
These three remixes make up a series of singles (already available on all platforms) that function as a preview of the complete project, which will feature the participation of a selection of producers from different corners of the planet, among whom are Klik & Frik, Rodrigo Gallardo, Tribilin Sound, Ruido Selecto, Guazú, Mente Organica, Lucas Lead. And more artists.
1. Barda & Celeste Gómez Machado - Las hojas tienen mudanza (Tribilin Sound Remix)
The reinterpretation of the Tribilin Sound remix of the original version produced by Barda with the vocals of Celeste Gómez Machado hits just the right spot for the dance floor, a wildcard for the DJ to flip in her electronic-organic crossover session.
2. El Remolón & Bárbara Silva - Adiós pueblito de Iruya (Klik & Frik Remix)
The voice of Bárbara Silva transformed into a vocal sample integrated into the instrumentation of the floor, a safe march towards the dance floor by the hand of the dancefloor magicians with Klik & Frik style
3. Tremor & Soema Montenegro - Cuando oigo sonar la caja (Ruido Selecto Remix)
The remix by the Colombian producer added to the original version a more ingrained tinge to the theatricality that the song has in itself, and endowed it with a certain drama within its sound narrative.
El Camino de Leda - Remixed
A little over a year ago we started with the second phase of the project “El Camino de Leda”, which consists of the reinterpretation of the original songs in the hands of various remixes created by artists from different fields of organic and experimental electronic music from different latitudes . A project that due to the confusion generated by the quarantines and isolations in the different cities has been affected a little in its original nature.
El Camino de Leda Remixed will be released in digital format. The full album is expected to be available by the end of the year or early 2021.
Gestation of the El Camino de Leda project
El Camino de Leda is a project that began to take shape approximately four years ago, Andrés Schteingart, better known as El Remolón, was passing through Barcelona and we met at VJ Ovideo's house in the Gothic Quarter, commenting on collaboration possibilities, he left the idea of making a cover album about the compilation work of the Argentine musicologist Leda Valladares.
What began as a vague idea of possible realization after a while (almost three years) became a recording project in double vinyl format, which had the participation of artists from Argentina who met in pairs especially to record songs for this project, the case of Tremor with Soema Montenegro, Chancha Via Circuito with Shaman Herrera, El Remolón with Bárbara Silva, Pol Nada with Jazmín Esquivel, among others.
Production in Buenos Aires
A project was cultivated that took a good number of months to bear fruit, after workshops on singing with box, meetings, recordings, sound research of the musical tradition and its integration with the music generated electronically from the new language of the folktronics. A process that reached its destination with the publication of a limited edition double vinyl and the presentation of the project live at the Xirgu theater in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This gathering of diverse talents, guided by the artistic and executive production of the Fértil Discos team in Buenos Aires, and the logistical collaboration of Folcore Records from Barcelona, allowed the project that had started as a couch talk at the home of colleagues to become a record project with a solid artistic and cultural proposal, present on the networks in various formats, with its own website and physical support on vinyl and CD.
