It is a strong commitment to the music of our time, evoking the current, transporting us to a world of sensations that can be felt and perceived in the environment. “In addition to these issues for their first job, will include pieces like ‘Grow’, composed by Hernández, or ‘Desperation & Dream’ by Martin, which will be collected on the second disc that will start recording in the coming months.

Policromía, el nuevo libro de Román Delgado

Polychrome, by Román Delgado

The journalist, geographer and professor of communication Delgado Román García (Los Realejos -Tenerife-, 1968) presented on Thursday November 27 his second book, called Polychrome, a publication edited by Cathaysa containing a selection of stories and other texts designed “to from urgency “press working.

The book will take its first steps promotional in the ceremony scheduled on Thursday November 27 at the headquarters of Equipo Para (La Marina, 4, Santa Cruz de Tenerife) It will be from 8 pm and will be attended by Juan Manuel Pardellas and Nana García, plus Gervasio Cabrera, the illustrator of the book.

After the initial part, it will pass to the account of a selection of texts Policromía, which will be narrated by Héctor Ruiz Verde, action shall be inserted with the music of Socos Duo, with César Martín (marimba) and Ciro Hernández (cello).

The infiltration process is almost complete, as Ear Conditioning are amp’d to announce we have struck a partnership with Finetunes Media Services of Germany.

What does that mean?

It signifies that somebody at Finetunes has faith in our vision, and we appreciate that. It means the label’s output will now be available via most of the worthy digital download and streaming outlets on the internets. You know, such as iTunes, Amazon, Beatport, Spotify even. We have a home with a distribution service that handles the goods for labels we respect, such as City Slang and Honest Jons. That can’t be bad can it?

As of 10th October our two initial releases, Socos Dúo with their debut album ‘These Times We Are Living’ and KingLMan’s ‘Vultures’ Bazaar’ EP from label head D.WattsRiot will be occupying a spot in the digital domain.

Socos Dúo ‘fuse classical with experimental to create hypnotically beautiful music’, while KingLMan stradles bass, dub, electronica in an attempt to be at peace with an upside down world, as Eduardo Galeano would say.

Both artists are readying new material to follow-up, but for now dig what is there, two distinctly different points of view that share common and distinct elements, if that makes sense.

We had the opportunity to appear in Mapa Sonoro,  in La 2, RTVE. It’s a musical program with the look of a road movie that tracks the most exciting proposals on the current scene through a character who is never seen, but that takes center stage with his voiceover. It is a program focused on quality independent music .Thank you to our manager Dave Watts (D.WattsRiot, KingLMan) and Ear Conditioing and all the Goroka team for this awesome moment.

(Socos Dúo min 25:30)

Here we was, in our album presentation at Auditorio de Tenerife. Great night with a lovely public. They gave us a a big round of applause for the work that we have done up to now. For us is a compromise to continue, a motive to keep fighting. We are extremely grateful with all the people, not to mention our team… They are awesome! Thank you!
