Abraham Carmona’s latest album stems from a session in the mountains of Granada, where he produced his most recent effort “Homage To Catalonia”, an album of traditional flamenco music produced by the legendary Youth (Killing Joke, Paul McCartney, Guns and Roses, The Verve). After finishing the traditional album, they decided to explore a new sound, combining beats, samples, electronics, and merging them with Abraham’s unique style of infusing jazz techniques with a flamenco aesthetic.
The result is a sublime collection of songs, eliciting images of chilled out nights under a summer sky, waves of electronic sounds wash over you, orchestral strings reminiscent of Kamasi Washington intertwine seamlessly with laid back grooves and a myriad of instrumentation, ranging from the eastern sounds of “Electronic Dreams” to the funky noodlings on “Fortamentura”

What a wonderful journey, the recording of this album… in the mountains of Granada where the spirits of my ancestors live in peace. I want to thank them for guiding me to the light, my parents for the life, my wife Julia for keeping me alive. Thank you YOUTH for being so present during the process, for your energy and insight, it was an incredible experience creating with you and your team!
Michael, so patient, thank you man, you are a pro! Stan, thanks for the 100 cups of tea :) Thanks to all mentioned and unmentioned, from my heart.
In 1998, Youth (Martin Glover) decided to set up, LSD - Liquid Sound Design as Dragonfly's sister label, specialising in
chilled out soundscapes, sonic beats and mellow grooves. LSD was as natural progression for Dragonfly keen to create an outlet for more experimental and down-tempo music as well as satisfying the demand for the post club chill out sounds....more

Somatics Serenade is certainly one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard... I usually rate music on a scale (0...5) but this track somhow is a 6. It is so good that it makes the rest of the EP appear mediocre in comparison... although it is actually very nice! Jonas R.
