Desarme Rock Social
Carlos joined the band in 2007 first as a guest musician playing Spanish guitar. This collaboration was questioned by many old fans since the music the band was playing was hard punk rock with heavy metal influences. However, after playing a couple of concerts together with recognized punk rock music such as: Los muertos de cristo, Boikot, E.U.K.Z, KOP among others, the audience and closest Desarme’s fans started to like the fusion between rock and spanish-gypsy guitar. After that Carlos joined more officially the band as a spanish-gypsy guitar player and electric guitarist.
Desarme Rock Social is a rock band with punk roots, combining reflective lyrics with a blunt sound that blends the possibilities that only countercultural art can allow. Formed in Bogotá, Colombia, in mid-1993, Desarme has had the opportunity to work with multiple artists both national and international. The musical process always linked to social activism has allowed Desarme to participate in several concerts, festivals and different events all over around the world, sharing stage with more than 170 bands and groups of all kind of genres and origins. Professional work and effort have allowed the band to be on tour in Venezuela on three occasions (2000, 2006 and 2008), Brazil (2008) and Europe (2009) in the countries of Denmark, Germany, Italy, Catalan Countries and the Basque Country. In the same way, Desarme was invited as one of the national bands in “Rock al Parque 2012”, one of the most important and the biggest free event of Latin America.

Psychic Equalizer is the project founded by Spanish pianist and composer Hugo Selles in 2011. Psychic Equalizer have recently released their 3rd studio release. ‘The Lonely Traveller’, a mixture of jazz, progressive rock, classical and avant-garde; has been awarded three silver medals at the Global Music Awards and keeps receiving wonderful reviews from magazines, blogs and fans around the world.
“Seems like the hard task of creating something new in jazz is not that hard when you give it to the right people, and Psychic Equalizer are surely these kind of men. They don’t try to get the hype, instead they do what they feel like doing the most. That’s why “The Lonely Traveller” is full of life, professionalism and comfort. They all know their strengths and limitations (for example, Selles has no limits!) and they do implement this into their music creating a sophisticated piece of music which is a little gem in the jazz book.” -Prog Archy
