Following notable releases on Editions Mego as Electronic music
duo LCC, multiple singles and collaborations on Nicolas Jaar's Other
People label and Modern Obscure Music, Spanish experimental
electronic artist Ana Quiroga announces her debut album Azabache.
Azabache is at its heart an enchanting album that explores themes
of magic and rituals, cinematic, experimental and firmly rooted in
place, family, and heritage.
Taking the listener through experimental, ambient soundscapes,
drone techno and industrial, synth-based sonics, organic sound
recordings with synthesizers, drums and drones.
Azabache brings together contrasting elements, the natural
landscapes, majestic mountains, and untamed sea of her homeland
in the Asturias are intertwined with a rich industrial heritage. Sci-fi
technology, drone techno influences, and dark distorted sounds
converge with the enchanting themes of folklore, witchcraft, and
mysticism, creating a bewildering paradox of machine-like precision
(representing the scientific and the proven) and the ethereal world
of magic itself.
This intriguing juxtaposition blends the tangible and the intangible,
offering a unique sonic experience that blurs the boundaries
between the natural and the industrial, the technological and the
