Product Notes

When Daniel Grau, Venezuelan producer and musician achieved his first success in 1974 with Dejando Volar El Pensamiento, he personally brought the tapes from his home studio to Caracas radio stations. The "magic sound of Daniel Grau" were made almost artisanal and self-promoted. Through ten years of productive work from 1974 to 1984, he never imagined the ups and downs ahead of him and much less that his country would suffer a future debacle that would lead it to a downward spiral. His abrupt silence in the mid-80s after nine magnificent albums is still an enigma. What happened to Daniel Grau? Where is he now? El Palmas Music, a new record label in Barcelona may finally bring the answer to you: Grau has been always there, he's still alive and running, and never stopped composing in the same home studio where he started 45 years ago. Having contacted Grau, El Palmas was allowed to access his current work, and finally decided to end with his long silence. In this, his first release as a record label, they bring to life a completely unpublished work of Daniel Grau. El Mágico Mundo de Daniel Grau presents eight new songs to give him back a voice. This album offers a fusion between space disco and amooth jazz that connects you directly with his previous work, however, on this basis Grau is building an amalgam of styles resulting from his experience over these years, freeing his work from any classifications. El Mágico Mundo evades the vacuous exactitude and automatism like water to oil, Grau offers a humanized sound from synthesizers and sampling of instruments, music that he has played, sweated and, definitively, lived in the flesh. Different ingredients come and go introducing you to a singular world, the "magical world" where Grau wants to tell you something, youfind his old footsteps and his new elements touch us, pop synths are suddenly colored with textures, reminiscent of the disco era piano are wrapped between brushstrokes and ornaments of funk and soft rock. In general, Grau invites us to a sensory reconnection with sounds that he has collected in his head for 30 years, striking elements that we can imagine as a living thing against a world almost numbed by the automation of production tools. Produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Daniel Grau under the executive production of Maurice Aymard.
