SILDA EP is the newest release by Static Discos founder FAX. Since his last release in late 2015, Constellation, Rubén Alonso (FAX) has been working on his side project Diahgonal and preparing this latest release.
SILDA EP contains all the hallmarks of a FAX release, the melodic and shimmering electronics that have characterized his musical career since 2000. FAX’s dreamy bass lines and analog electronics resonate with washes of live instrumentation courtesy of musician Iván Trujillo on the title track. The release sounds like stopgap in between FAX and Rubén Alonso’s further explorations as Diahgonal.
