Chilean electronic music producer and musician, Sebastián Mella, is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of his third studio album under the alias 'Fantasna'. The album, titled 'Estar Contigo', consists of eight meticulously crafted tracks and is set to launch digitally and in a limited-edition double vinyl format on November 24, 2023. Notably, the release features a remix of the second single, "Estar Contigo," skillfully crafted by renowned Chilean producer and DJ, Pablo Vásquez, better known as Vaskular. He recently dropped his album 'Rosa Disco' under Discos Pegaos, and is also the co-creator, alongside Valesuchi, of the iconic track "Black Jesus," released on the Cómeme label.
'Estar Contigo' will be presented under the Chilean label 'Halcxn', marking its twentieth reference and established by Fantasna himself amid the 2020 pandemic. The album serves as a nostalgic masterpiece, weaving a diverse sonic tapestry that explores a spectrum of genres, ranging from hip-hop to electro, traversing through acid, and deep house. Each track stands as a unique sonic entity, contributing to the intricate and multifaceted narrative of the album.
'Estar Contigo' is an emotionally charged album, equally suitable for contemplation and the dance floor, where the art of sampling takes center stage, amplifying the overarching concept of nostalgia. This release pays tribute to revered artists who have departed, serving as a window to the past and a poignant reminder of the significance of genuine human connections, especially in the post-pandemic era. Each soundbite captures a memory, and collectively, they construct a harmonious and reflective journey across the album's eight tracks.
