Cuban-born, Brooklyn-based jazz pianist David Virelles combines Afro-Cuban rhythms with electronic sounds on this six song EP he describes as otherworldly.

"This album is unlike any that I’ve made before: the music would have been impossible to create in the usual way, with this level of sonic experimentation. I wanted the music to have the sound and feel of traditional Afro-Cuban rhythms, but generated and deconstructed electronically, so that I could make new, very different music out of those elements. I spent a lot of time trying to make my electronic percussion sound as natural as possible ... we added ambient noise in the background of the opening and closing percussion pieces I programmed, to make them sound like field recordings, a sonic atmosphere I like. I’m proud of the otherworldly aspect of those tracks."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
