A1 Won't Say It (Henry Saiz remix)
A2 Smell Memory (Alizzz remix feat. Patrick Baker)
A3 Closer (Lost Twin remix)

B1 You've Been Light To Me (Marc Marzenit 'Back to Disco' remix)
B2 Magic Tweens (Extended version)


What can we say about bRUNA and his treasure of a second album, "Thence" (sp24cd, spa.RK 2013)? So full of life, and gushing with light and intelligent hedonism, it was one of the records of 2013, driven up the charts on the back of such raving reviews.


The perfect side dish it’s now here, and which so wonderfully reflects bRUNA’s duality: the precise midpoint between the dancefloor and emotional catharsis. Five remixes of tracks from "Thence" by fellow artists of unquestionable talent who, in one way or another, are part of the booming wave of Spanish electronica that seems to be right at its peak. Alizzz, Cristian Quirante’s project that has gone down a storm in Los Angeles, reshapes “Smell memory” with the help of US vocalist Patrick Baker, an epic tune with hints of r’n’b that drinks from every fountain available as well as others that have yet to come: a ray of light. Henry Saiz needs no introduction: the internationally acclaimed champion of techno and Natura Sonoris honcho has produced a stratospheric remix of “Won’t say it”, with a very 90s flavour along similar lines to his excellent “Reality is for those who are not strong enough to confront their dreams”. Marc Marzenit oozes potential and has brought a Kompakt-esque feel to “You've Been Light To Me". Lost Twin, Seville born but now living in Brighton, has adapted “Closer” to his steamily drifting electronica blended in with nuances of hip hop. And to end the record, bRUNA plays à la Toni Peret in an extended remix of “Magic Tweens” that harks back to the 12” tradition styled in 1985.

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

¿Qué podemos decir de bRUNA y "Thence", su segundo disco, que tantas alegrías nos ha dado? "Thence" (sp24cd, spa.RK 2013) fue uno de los discos del año pasado, encumbrado por la crítica a los puestos de honor de las listas. Un disco vitalista, con luz a raudales y hedonismo inteligente.


Ahora ve la luz el complemento perfecto, que se sitúa en esa dualidad tan propia de bRUNA: en la equidistancia justa entre la pista de baile y la catarsis emocional. Cinco remezclas de temas de "Thence" de la mano de artistas amigos, indudables talentos que, de una forma u otra, forman parte de esa enorme nueva oleada de la electrónica nacional, que se encuentra en su mejor momento. Alizzz, el proyecto de Cristian Quirante al que se han rendido en Los Ángeles, que aquí moldea “Smell memory” con la ayuda del cantante estadounidense Patrick Baker, en una epopeya con aire r’n’b que bebe de todas las fuentes habidas y por haber: pura luminosidad. Poca presentación necesita Henry Saiz, campeón del techno y triunfador en la escena internacional, que encara una estratosférica remezcla de “Won’t say it”, muy 90s, en la línea de su excelente disco “Reality is for those who are not strong enough to confront their dreams”. Marc Marzenit, el leridano del que se sigue esperando un larga duración, culpable de darle a “You've Been Light To Me" un aire muy Kompakt. Lost Twin, el sevillano instalado en Brighton y su electrónica ralentizada en “Closer”, en arrastre continuo, vaporosa, de tonalidades hip hop. Y cerrando el disco, el propio bRUNA, que juega a ser Toni Peret en una versión extendida de “Magic Tweens”, a la antigua usanza, como las versiones largas que se estilaban en 1985.
