Gregorio Gomez aka Gladkazuka is a mythical figure from Medellín’s underground nightlife, contributing since pre – smartphone ages with energetic live sets to the celebration of life in the convulsive surrounding of the Colombian city. After playing and touring alongside Matias Aguayo with “The Desdemonas” and contributing with the club smash hits “Ihr Euer” and “Futuro Chaos” to the “Solidarity Forever” series on Cómeme - Gladkazuka is back with a full EP in which highly emotive and sensual electro dance fantasies culminate to “The Drop”. Gomez’ creations are nocturnal and lush, utopian and melancholic - underground dance pop that would be mainstream in a better world.
“Naturalia”, the first track of the EP reflects this with its lushness and its jungle - like humid warmth, “Flancing” with its happy flying fishes and “El Coral” with its jittering electric eels.
“The Drop” is decontextualized Electro and New Wave – echoes of dissolving into utopian dreaming, longing for better times, like vampire bats, hanging in their caves, waiting for the night to come.
