Today is the big day! Yes ladies and gentlemen my album 'MAGNETIC' is OUT NOW!!! It took me two long years of studio production, composition, arrangements, recording sessions with stellar musicians.. and now I'm here, with a copy of 'Magnetic' on a beautiful transparent vinyl LP in my hand! It makes me feel so happy!!! -This is what the press has to say: "Best loved and noted to date for his genre blending and high quality dub-centric productions, in Magnetic, GAUDI has shown us another aspect of his musical self, other ranges in his musical landscape and he has done it with an all-star cast of supporting musicians.
The list of artists who have added their sounds and skills to the overall project reads like a ‘who’s who’ of musical talent and gives warranted indication as to the quality of the ingredients; musicians featured in Magnetic include bass legend and producer extraordinaire Bill Laswell, psychedelic prog-rock bassist Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree fame), drummer Steve Jansen (from art pop band Japan), Ted Parsons(drummer from cult band Killing Joke), composer extraordinaire Roger Eno (Official) on piano, Tony Levin on bass (best known for his work with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson), Grammy award winning Eric Mouquet aka Deep Forest on grand piano, legendary drummer Pat Mastelotto (Official) (known for his work with XTC, King Crimson and David Sylvian), innovatory avant-guard guitarist Eraldo Bernocchi, post-punk experimental guitarist Buckethead (collaborator with Guns ’n’ Roses, Bootsy Collins, Iggy Pop), drummer Nikolaj Bjerre from Lamb, multi-instrumentalist Jamie Saft on bass, Lorenzo Feliciati also on bass, psy-centric guitarists Pippo De Palma and Steve Norris... to name but a few. Gaudi, alongside production and programming, for this project returns to his roots as a pianist / keyboard and theremin player, playing his full arsenal of vintage analogue synthesizers.
Magnetic is like a tour around the other side of Gaudi, who always had the off-beat of reggae in his step, but since his teenage years also had music from experimental electronica, new wave, krautrock and post-punk avant-garde flowing through his veins. Bands like Tuxedomoon, Bauhaus, Yello, Cabaret Voltaire, Devo, Killing Joke, Can, Talkingheads and The Residents informed his early years. For those familiar with Gaudi’s work these influences can be heard in a myriad of different ways in most of his 16 albums to date, but predominantly as flavours amongst the dub. However with Magnetic he has reversed the polarity, north has become south, there is dub seasoning to be found within, but the body, tone and flavour of this album are another beast altogether."- Available in all formats, check album teaser here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed2WErvSXWA and get your copy from the links here: https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-Gaudi/dp/B01N5QUSIH, https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/magnetic/id1244689871, http://www.rarenoiserecords.com/gaudi .
