JGR & Yahaira - Fechorías [Melómana Records]

JGR is that kind of artist who does not stitch without a thread, who knows what they are doing at all times and leaves nothing to the whim of chance, although sometimes their decisions may seem unusual or out of place. And if, in addition, after a consecration in the underground, we see him doing his thing with Pulso Electromagnetico, with the Madrid-based DJ and producer from Burgos: Yahaira, it leaves us even more surprised.

The entire album manages to provide introspection, absorbing energy and twilight light, and that closes a record that knows how to turn musical pulp into a refreshing ambrosia juice. The more the record is listened to, the more difficult it is to locate it in a specific geographical location. His music seems to never solidify, to be a flow of sounds and impressions that never seem to remain fixed in place or memory, until it postulates itself as one of the true values of the future of tame and lustrous electronic music.

This album demonstrates the particular way of understanding the sound of JGR and Yahaira, located at the opposite end of what is commercial, what is generic, what works: what it does is, on the contrary, a kind of unstable magma of pulsations and flashes, of melodic lines and blurred textures, pursuing a serene, spiritual, almost ascetic expression. All those languages and influences from which he drew dialogue on this record, creating new, different and highly evolved sound organisms.

The remix by the duo Panka Panka (xarlee “member of Gameboyz” and Miguel Blanco), gives a twist to the original song, which without losing its essence, manages to give it an unexpected, energetic and very danceable twist, suitable to make dancefloors explode. The idea that drives this album refers us to one of the crucial attributes of music, and it is its inexhaustible capacity to generate moods that protect us at all times. Its meaning remains in the hands of electronic music lovers.
