Marco Gomes is coming with a much personal and intimate album named « week », as much as a real research on sounds and textures.
It’s a day to day travel in which each element of the week, each day, with its particular soundscape, is part of an ensemble that expresses the complexity of emotions and the difficulties to catch the real life in its crudeness.
This album is kind of melancholic, it’s hard to deny it, but it’s not expressed in a naive or depressed language. Some dark sounds, industrial, are always balanced with melodic or harmonic elements.
Rhythms change along the pieces, the idea remains, in this kind of sharp and sweet poetry, in a kind of spiritual romanticism.
This quest of sound of structures is an existential investigation on the modern life through the prism of ruled time oppression versus sublimation of the machines.
Karat has always stayed true to their basic philosophy of keeping an open mind in terms of artistic objectives. The simple idea is that, if it sounds good, it deserves to be offered to the public. They have a certain reputation for dancefloor-oriented tunes, but the first priority is to present a wide selection of artists with their own personal vision of style and music. The musical spectrum ranges from pop, house, electro to hip-hop or funk, blended together freely. In the long line of releases, you'll find a coherent variation of styles, solidly distinctive, yet joined by a common goal: making good music.
