Andrés Ponce, Venezuelan musician and producer living in the United States, undertakes an extensive musical research and launches his project Venezonix. An incredible musical proposal that combines the modern, primitive, tribal and futuristic world. His new album, “La Que Es” arrives in February 2021 with Afro-Venezuelan and electronic sounds; hand in hand with his first single of the same name, along with a video that you can enjoy by following his social networks.
This EP features a first single with the ambassadors of Venezuelan Culture, Betsayda Machado, the voice of Venezuela and La Parranda El Clavo.
Andres Ponce, after years in the musical world as a founding member of the band Elastic Bond, (which has released three albums and collaborated with artists such as Los Amigos Invisibles), undertakes this new project called Venezonix. With the essence of native rhythms transformed through technology, this, his first EP, unites primitive sounds with current ones. The presence of synthesizers, samplers and other machines give that modern touch to each track, turning this album into a ride that is loaded with ancestral magic and that avant-garde spirit that is so passionate.
The EP is produced and mixed by Andrés Ponce (agpa) and mastered by Carlos Arellano. Except for “La Que Es”, which was mixed and mastered by Andrés Daza at Electric Air Studios. All the tracks on the EP are composed by Andrés G. Ponce (BMI) except for La Situación (Venezonix remix) which is an original by Betsayda Machado and La Parranda El Clavo.
In the words of Andres Ponce “Definitely the fact of being so many years out of Venezuela has been a great catalyst for this project which is like an imaginary bridge to maintain a connection with so many memories, sounds, colors. I hope it also serves as a small contribution to continue spreading our rhythms to new ears and frontiers”.
The promotional single that bears the same name of the EP, “La Que Es” feat Betsayda Machado & La Parranda El Clavo, is a sonic experience that combines the vocal and rhythmic majesty of one of the most important voices of the continent with electronic sounds.
Undoubtedly a Folktronic experience that you can’t miss. To learn more about this project visit IG – @venezonix
