This duo from La Mancha promises to be one of the great hopes for experimental electronic music listeners in our country. His debut album, “Apollo”, proves it.

Releasing your first album on John Digweed’s record label is something within the reach of very few artists in the world. Despite the fact that these two boys have not yet received the recognition they deserve, the truth is that they have a long history behind them, which is irrefutably reflected in the quality of their sound.

Their music has toured a large part of Europe , and has even traveled to Mexico on a tour from which they took great advantage on a musical level. This particular project is part of “Quattro Artist”, a collective album in which John Digweed has tried to give visibility to various artists of great sound quality. Quivver, Captain Mustache or Satoshi Fumi are, along with Lopezhouse, its protagonists.

As they themselves have stated regarding the origin of the album, “It all came about because of a call from John Digweed who asked us if we wanted to make an experimental album giving free rein to our imagination, without thinking about the dance floor”. And indeed, that perfectly sums up the overall result of this work.

In an era so marked by the commercial, where it seems that social networks like TikTok or Instagram set musical standards more than the musicians themselves, these particular sound journeys are greatly appreciated. Trips that transport us to atmospheres where the only important thing is music. Without labels, likes , challenges , trends , or stereotypes. Only talent and ideas poured into the music itself.

We have the feeling that this album is maturing as the tracks progress. It goes without saying that, for a good enjoyment of it, you must stop and analyze its evolution piece by piece. A random listen to specific moments of each song will not help to understand the atmosphere and the message of “Apollo”.

“Amanecer” kicks off the album. A warm, simple work that perfectly describes the set of emotions that are experienced when in fact the sunrise is observed. A journey through the different parts of the planet that reaches its particular equator with the exit to space. If we had to explain to a listener what “Apollo” represents, “Love In The Spacecraft” and its almost eight minute piece represent it perfectly.

A complete, complex piece that evolves perfectly from start to finish. An authentic interstellar journey where these guys show us their reign over percussions and melodies with eighties touches.

All this to later turn into the darkest and most sinister atmosphere possible with “Apollo”. Here the duo is in charge of showing us to what level their versatility reaches on musical creation. A work equally composed of countless details that, as a whole, continue to add meaning to the final set of the album.

The closure is signed by “The Valley” and “Someday”, two cuts in which we practically do not find instrumental elements. Without any need for vocals, these guys make the melodies themselves speak to the listener. Little more can be asked of Lopezhouse.

So far our review of this magnificent album . Thirteen pieces that allow us to better understand who these guys are and where their musical career is heading. Los Conciertos de Radio 3 was recently broadcast on show exclusively recorded by them for the occasion. So now you know, those of you who want to enjoy this set of sounds in an even more complete way, this program has everything you need.
