About Common Sense

If you are here reading this post it is for several reasons, it is likely that you are an artist and you are looking for someone to accompany you in the production of a single because you liked the “sound” of what we have done. You might have a friend who is talented but isn’t quite sure how to come up with a product of the right quality to launch their song into the cosmos, another hypothetical scenario is that you have a song on the tip of your tongue that could become a super hit. , but sometimes this “artist” life does not bring bread and money under his arm.

It is no secret that 2020 and even 2021 are atypical years that in the sphere of music and all its protagonists are leaving great troubles as a result of the pandemic. I could make an infinite pile of complaints and fill myself with enough reasons to cry about how hard it is to see so many musicians rolling through the streets looking for a way to survive with their incredible gifts on the flow of their instruments, their voices and their performance, but I conclude that the only way I like to shed tears is from pure happiness when a new song is ready to be presented to the world.

We all live our own reality, some feel enlightened, others unfortunate, but almost all of them have an ace up their sleeve: talent. At Uchuva Records we have the resources, modestly what is necessary to produce a good single, and we are willing to do it without difference for those who have the resources and for those who do not.

But of course, the efforts must be fair and mutual, collaborating and sharing should not be anything other than what each word means. We all want to fulfill our dreams and goals and for that you need something very important, money. It sounds crude but it is real, this is how our economic system works and we are not going to break into politics or the like to argue that it is good or not, what we can do is apply common sense, shake hands with a colleague, support those who have dreams but not money capital.

Our proposal is direct and consists of the following: For each artist who pays for the production of her single, we at Uchuva Records are going to produce a single for an artist who does not have the resources to do so. So easy and transparent.

Why do we want to do it? because we love what we do, we are passionate about music and we need to spend our time doing what we feel we can do best, producing. We also want to invite other producers, labels and artists to replicate this model.

The truth is that there are many benefits for all parties, but I will leave that for another post, we are currently applying what I have just preached and we are happy and with a full heart making music for an artist who deserves all the support for her determination and talent. . That will be a topic for another post.

The invitation is open, if you are an artist with resources who need to produce at least one single, if you don’t have them, or if you know someone who requires our support, then get in touch, we are willing to be part of the solution and make music .

Find Your Place

Last month I turned 39, of which I am clear that I have been strongly connected to music since I was 6. I grew up listening to my mother’s protest music, Spanish Pop, 80’s Anglo Rock from my uncles and among With that mix I discovered that I could sing and have an even more intimate connection with the music.

A lot of Rock and Pop through my veins, a “cachaco” typical of Bogotá, the capital, always wrapped in that halo of comfort of the music that the now extinct Super Station 88.9 emitted. What good music then on the radio.

The music of the 80’s definitely marked my life, my style and my tastes, but I also moved away from other good sounds and rhythms, in short, at that time you couldn’t choose what you wanted to listen to, you listened to what the radio played or the albums that You shopped at music stores.

I missed a lot of folklore, I missed the Caribbean, the Andes, the Amazon and the Orinoco, I lost the essential sounds of my own land.

It took me all these years to understand how immensely rich the sound of our region is, I had to break many paradigms and even lose some good friends just because I wanted to listen to something different.

I stopped being a singer in a cover band, it’s not a bad thing to be, in fact it’s fun and hard work, you learn a lot there. I had my own band, Sweet Machines that still continues without me, but I left my comfort to explore what was unthinkable for me in terms of neotropical genres, electronic music and thus make the decision to become a producer, creator of my own sound, a conciliator between the sounds of my land and those of others.

My good friend Shaun Taberer and I clicked spontaneously, he joined us with a love of British music, being a lover of the Beatles and I being crazy about the Rolling Stones. Little by little I included him in my listening and playing with synthesizers and we ended up composing at least 6 electronic tracks that we managed to play at Café Naturalia, that was the beginning of a close friendship that until now has led us to his invitation, founding a label to support musicians from the city, who have an affinity for electronic music and the traditional and folk sounds of the country. Shaun feels very grateful to Colombia and Medellín in particular, he infected me with his desire to “repay love” to be kind to the land and well, that is the best excuse to do what I am most passionate about, create.

I want to take our sounds and fusions abroad, I want to shoot with that special talent that has opened so many doors for us on other occasions. I want to produce music with local talent, give it that modern touch it deserves without purism, and help my people get somewhere with their music.

And you already found your place? Do you recognize where you come from and how you sound? And even more important, where do you want to go? If you have an answer to one or more of these questions, then don’t hesitate to contact us.
