From the conviction that one can only be a transgressor if one acts from firm knowledge and the purest of respect, we can affirm emphatically that this Third heaven (Universal), by singer Rocío Márquez and electronic music producer Bronquio, is an album that transgresses flamenco to take it to another level. He has elevated it as only great works can do with an entire genre charged with a tradition that usually weighs more than a slab. The same tradition that has been shattered by blows of the hammer, represented by each of the electronic effects that the magician Bronquio has taken out of his sonic hat. But none of this would have been possible without the spirit of constant search that Rocío Márquez has shown in a career that likes to walk the wire of risk. His mastery and daring give Third heaven that solera that shields it from the criticism of the heterodox, the guardians of the essence who are lost in search of a pulpit before such a host. (Mr. Riot)
Guitarricadelafuente―The quarry : Guitarricadelafuente finally makes his full-length debut with an album produced by Raül Refree in which the artist experiments like never before. A hypnotic compendium of rumba marinated in jota, hazy electronics, sacred jasmine lament and avant-pop.
Amaia- When I don't know who I am: Amaia's new LP presents us with an artist whose maturity may have come before her time, but who reinforces the sensation of a figure with the need to transcend herself as a generational voice.
Cupid ―Love overdose: Pimp Flaco and Solo Astra, that is Cupid, give themselves some extra time with Love overdose (Primavera Labels/Universal), a definitively pop work in which the guitars sound fresh and the melodies catchy.
Gins― Alex Turner: That thing that they would sleep when they died was very serious. Madrid's Genevas press the accelerator in their new single and they sing the forty to the cretin types in Alex Turner.
