While Bradien + Eduard Escoffet continue to reap the benefits of their "Pols" release (sp23cd, 2012) and prepare to record their second album together, we now get the bonus of this exquisitely late reworking of two of its tracks. Seeking to expand their vision and broaden the musical horizons of that project as far as possible, Bradien the band, Eduard Escoffet the poet and spa.RK the label sat around a table with a few wines to make a list of friends and acquaintances who could be tempted by the idea of revisiting their tunes and adding their own special, personal and heterogeneous touch to the poetic universe, evasive electronica and post-pop feeling of "Pols".

The task, though apparently simple, ended up taking longer than expected. But spa.RK never imposes deadlines or rushes artists into releasing material before it’s absolutely perfect. And perfection is what we’ve got here: an ultra-limited edition featuring four passionate remixes on 7’’ vinyl and digital format for everyone’s enjoyment. "Fer-me una casa" (with its enigmatic lyrics, and its disturbing itinerary of personal construction between you and I) and "L'altra" (with magical samples from songs ranging from Boney M to Tender Forever, and waxing lyrical about desire and the unattainable) were put in the masterful hands of Meneo (electropical chiptune producer from Guatemala), Don The Tiger (one of the more active assets of underground music in Barcelona, with a fantastic first album on Barcelona label Canada), Xtrngr (Barcelona classy dark-ambient producer who has just released his gorgeous second album on Discontinu label), and Msecam (Fibla’s sideproject devoted to sampling old soundtracks and kitsch sounds): four different approaches, whose interpretations range from tropicalism to 21st century crooner, dark ambient and horizontal electronica.

------------

Mientras Bradien + Eduard Escoffet siguen recogiendo los frutos de su disco "Pols" (sp23cd, 2012) y encaran la grabación de un segundo trabajo conjunto, llegan con exquisito retraso estas relecturas de dos de sus temas. Con la voluntad de ampliar la visión y abrir al máximo el horizonte musical de "Pols", Bradien, Eduard Escoffet y spa.RK nos sentamos alrededor de una mesa y unos vinos para hacer una lista de amigos y afines a los que pudiera tentar la idea de enfrentarse a sus temas y aportar algo personal, lo más heterogéneo y lo más especial posible al universo poético, la esquiva electrónica y el poso pop de "Pols".

La tarea, aunque aparentemente sencilla, ha terminado dilatándose más de lo esperado. Pero muy en la línea de spa.RK, donde nunca se ponen plazos de entrega ni se presiona a ningún artista, esperando con ello el mejor de los resultados posibles. Y así ha acabado siendo: cuatro relecturas apasionantes que salen en limitadísima edición en vinilo 7’’ y en formato digital para disfrute de todos. "Fer-me una casa" (un enigmático texto, un inquietante itinerario de construcción personal, entre el yo, el vosotros y el tú) y "L'altra" (con sus sampleos mágicos y recortes de discos que van de Boney M a Tender Forever, y una letra que habla del deseo y de lo inalcanzable) se sometieron a las manos maestras de Meneo (productor de chiptune electropical de Guatemala), Don The Tiger (el proyecto de Adrián de Alfonso, uno de los miembros más activos del undeground barcelonés, que debutó con "Varadero" en el sello barcelonés Canada), Xtrngr (productor de ambient elegante y oscuro que acaba de sacar su fantástico segundo disco en Discontinu) y Msecam (el proyecto paralelo de Fibla dedicado al sampleado de viejas bandas sonoras y sonidos de kitsch pop): cuatro aproximaciones distintas, con lecturas que van del tropicalismo al crooner del siglo XXI, el ambient oscuro y la electrónica de escucha horizontal.
