Angel Rada Mix Released Soon by El Palmas
El Palmas Music To Release Compilation Mix of Angel Rada
“At some point, electronic music began to become increasingly commercial and compliant
to markets, so we took the opposite direction. Not everybody’s ears are prepared to hear
real sounds, sometimes this complex intellectuality makes them upset. We are still active and
our original structure still works, defending music at its high level as an expression of Art.”
Angel Rada and the Compilation Album
Angel Rada’s Style
Through his many influences, Rada has evolved through the use of dynamic and melodic structures. For instance, he constitutes an antidote to the repetitive minimal music he sees across the electronic landscape of today. In addition, he also looks to further develop electronic music in its original form. The early groundwork of pioneers, Stockhausen, Schulze and Robert Schroeder inspired Angel. For example, his first single ‘Hiperspacio’ is taken from his 1984 double LP ‘Viveka.’ Rada’s spiritual inquiry is informed by his own spiritual inquiry.
Following a serious emergency operation, Rada contemplated the meaning of artistic expression through music. In addition, the operation inspired other tracks from ‘Viveka’ LP such as ‘Kundalini’ (named after a form of spiritual female energy released by meditation). ‘Hiperspacio’, translated to English means ‘Hyperspace’ and references the notion of time-travel or higher states accessed by certain methods of spiritual practice. Rada seeks to communicate this vision. For instance, he incorporates raw recordings of swirling wind with a subtly driving low-end and reverbed psychedelic synth melodies. As a result, this creates a sense of space as though one is transcending the universe.
Accompanying, ‘Hiperspacio’ is a music video crafted and directed by Spanish audio-visual studio, Dedo Ciego. Premiered by Boiler Room 4:3, the video offers a visual representation of the contexts and inspirations that lie behind Rada’s 1984 creation, Hiperspacio.
