El Palmas Music is pleased to announce the release of “Freedom” the first single from the iconic Venezuelan producer Daniel Grau in more than 30 years. The song will bereleased in the forthcoming album El Mágico Mundo de Daniel Grau this year and it comes with avideo realized by Grilled Cheese Studio.
Played and produced by Grau himself, “Freedom” is a kind of sensorial and electronic smooth jazzwhere a succession of different colored synthesized voices make questions and answers, solosand rhythmic accompaniments in a sense, libertine hedonism from start to finish. The song ispresented with a progression of electric organ chords that relaxes the general aura serving as asensual context. The song gets catchy over this oscillating cushioning when the different entitiesbegin to appear, synthesized instruments that build several sections of dialogue, melodies and accompaniment ask and answer each other, intertwined with small passages of calm.
In these sorts of pauses, we have again in the foreground the electronic smooth chords, but this time Grau introduces variations, arpeggios like wake-up calls, several notes of the same scale from the bottom to the top, that immediately go back down to tranquility, like a miniature synthesis of the general concept of the song. After this slight rest, the round starts again, raise the intensity of the emotion, like a physical struggle, united, but at the same time free.
“Freedom” is, in fact, a continuous conversation that little by little tend to coincide in different points, maybe like a romance because in this dialogue, two instruments are protagonists, they talk and attract each other, measure their strength and each one tries to be victorious but all end up in calm and in one body.
El Mágico Mundo de Daniel Grau is the first Grau’s album since mid-80s and will be released this year, breaking almost 30 years of silence of this producer.
