about

“I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​sling​ ​a​ ​stone,​ ​a​ ​small​ ​rock​ ​into​ ​a​ ​pool,​ ​see​ ​it​ ​ripple.​ ​I​ ​want​ ​to​ ​shake​ ​a​ ​tree,​ ​create​ ​a small​ ​storm...”​ ​SD

As​ ​announced​ ​just​ ​a​ ​few​ ​months​ ​ago,​ ​the​ ​journey​ ​started​ ​with​ ​the​ ​EP
'Imperfections Side' in which Fernando delves into his alibi of imperfections and proposes a closure​ ​at​ ​the​ ​level​ ​of​ ​the​ ​first​ ​delivery.

Again​ ​in​ ​EP​ ​format,​ ​and​ ​in​ ​10​ ​"vinyl,​ ​the​ ​second​ ​release​ ​of​ ​his​ ​brand​ ​new​ ​label -Beautiful Accident- presents a tour of analogue sonorities, hedonistic rhythms and arpeggios intricate and timid acid bass lines that round out a cosmic piece of work, marking the line that the label will follow in its next releases, conformed exclusively for electronic artists​ ​that​ ​are​ ​characterized​ ​by​ ​performing​ ​their​ ​tracks​ ​live.

It is precisely in his live performances, where Lagreca has taken to it like a fish in water, with his set-up in the mid-way between analogue and digital, and a large dose of improvisation and track management, which undoubtedly have consolidated him in the first part of this 2017​ ​as​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​most​ ​interesting​ ​live​ ​acts​ ​on​ ​the​ ​national​ ​scene.

He closes the year with 'A Thousand Years'​, with his live performances in unbeatable form and​ ​the​ ​label​ ​in​ ​increasing​ ​artistic​ ​progression.

The​ ​tracks:

The A-side of the vinyl presents a forceful intro, with layers of arpeggios and a particular rhythmic vision in which he combines polychrome and classical 4 x 4 together with more sounds close to R & B, ​'World'​, a piece that every listen finds us, like the own world, new things.

Following the path we find ​'Someone', a song sung with clear allusion to encounters and disagreements, in a pop and deep house key where the pads and arpeggios aren’t missing, they carry the track and the vocals make you think of an optimistic vision, although with a background​ ​that​ ​is​ ​perceived​ ​as​ ​a​ ​game​ ​of​ ​fate.

Moving on to the B-side implies a return to submerge into a world plagued with sequences that slide around labyrinth structures, the concentric circles we notice when we throw a stone into the lake ​'A Thousand Years' gives a glimpse of all that and more, it’s a track with weight,​ ​with​ ​the​ ​soul​ ​of​ ​a​ ​dance​ ​floor,​ ​of​ ​a​ ​remix,​ ​of​ ​being​ ​danced​ ​to.

Closing the EP Lagreca delivers ​'Asking You'​, a question mark in the form of acid bass and crossed arpeggios that alert us to the unknown, to the past that shapes the future, and to the fragile​ ​and​ ​imperfect​ ​we​ ​usually​ ​are.
