Jordi Saludes, arquitecto sonoro y dj de Barcelona, ha publicado álbumes , eps y una larga lista de 12″ en varios sellos europeos. Bajo su alias D-FRIED, mezcla texturas electrónicas y sonidos ambientales con ritmos intrincados, construyendo con ruidos cotidianos y sutiles melodías digitales, bandas sonoras para viajeros urbanos … Después de que su primer álbum “Clouds Leave No Trace” en Phonocake, alcanzara varios top best netlabel album en el 2009, ha aparecido en algunas recopilaciones en Europa y Japón en sellos como Mille Plateaux / Force Intel, Lemongrass Músic, Mizukage, Phonocake, Discontinu, Etcht, Disboot, etc … Su segundo álbum “The Lost Tomorrow” (Discontinu 2013) tuvo una cálida bienvenida en España, con excelentes críticas en revistas y otros medios de comunicación internacionales. Con otros proyectos en su bandeja de salida, D-Fried siempre está involucrado en colaboraciones con otros artistas, o haciendo música para publicidad, documentales, películas, danza contemporánea, instalaciones audiovisuales, o sitios web.

Dicho esto, su primer álbum para el sello neoyorquino Clean Error, este fenomenal “Peak Shift Effect”, cuenta con seis canciones grabadas por pistas, del mismo modo en que se grababan las canciones en una consola analógica, o sea registrando en tiempo real las interpretaciones de los músicos, una pista tras otra. A excepción de los ritmos, que fueron creadas usando software como Battery, Kontakt, Reaktor o Ultrabeat, el resto de las pistas provienen de instrumentos hardware. D-Fried no es un fundamentalista analógico : ama los sintetizadores virtuales tanto como cualquier otro tipo de instrumento o dispositivo capaz de hacer ruido, sin embargo, el propósito de Jordi al evitar el uso de sintetizadores software no era otro que poner ciertas limitaciones en su proceso creativo, con el objetivo de andar diferentes caminos, tomar diferentes decisiones y terminar con distintos resultados.

Jordi Saludes, musical architectural mason, & dj from Barcelona, Spain has published multitudinous albums, eps and a long list of 12″ on various European labels. Under his D-FRIED nom de plume, he mixes electronic textures and urban vertex sounds with ornate rhythms, building with ordinary noises and subtle digital melodies, funneling soundtracks for city travelers. After his first album “Clouds Leave No Trace” on Phonocake reached the fleck as one of the very few best top speed net label albums in 2009, he appeared again in variegated compilations in Europe and Japan in labels like Mille Plateaux/Force Intel, Lemongrass Music, Mizukage, Phonocake, Discontinu, Etcht, Disboot, etc…His second album “The Lost Tomorrow” (Discontinu 2013) had a very sweltering welcome in Spain, with excellent reviews in magazines and other international media. With quite a few releases on his fricassee pan, D-Fried is always involved in phrenic collaborations with other artists, working on different sides of the conduit aqueducts, and making music for commercials, documentaries, films, contemporary dance, audiovisual installations, and websites.

All that being said again, his latest and first phenomenal release for New Yorkʼs Clean Error Records “Peak Shift Effect” is exquisitely recorded much like live real time playerʼs performances recorded by tracking analogously one track after the other. Much of the rhythms themselves were created utilizing software such as Battery, Kontakt, Reaktor or Ultrabeat, The rest of the tracking came from hardware instruments themselves played in real time. Jordi is not a hardware/analog fundamentalist: He loves software variables as much as any other kind of instrument or device able to make the dulcet of noise however, Jordiʼs purpose to avoid the use of soft synths was none other than only to put some limitations in his creative process, aiming to traipse through different paths, undertaking different decisions and ending up with a different results.
