ALIZZZ: C Tangana and I say many times, 'You will see when people find out that we have no fucking idea'

ALIZZZ has a recurrent joke with Tangana C. "Many times we say: when people find out that we do not have a fucking idea of what we are doing and the chollo runs out ...". It is hard to take it a joke after seeing them in the last edition of the Latin Grammy, where they left with three prizes (best Pop-Rock song, Best Alternative Song and Best Recording Engineering by the album 'El Madrid') and Confirmation that they are the great creative team of Spanish music: the first as a producer and the second as a star and composer.

Now Christian Quirrante, who is what he puts on the DNI of Alizzz, takes a step forward and it has to be something else ', his first album. A disc about partying in the morning, going to work as a splicing and hearts that break a little bit at the after. They accompany him him himself Tangana himself ('no longer vouchers'), Amaia ('the meeting'), Rigoberta Bandini ('dawn'), the Mexicans Little Jesus ('Fatal') and the great idol of the producer: Jota de los planets ('Emergency lights').

It is the culmination of a path that began in Castelldefells, a town on the outskirts of Barcelona where Alizzz was publishing EPS of Electronics a decade ago, until he met Pucho (C Tangana). He produced the first issue of him next to Rosalia ('before dying') and that of his first ball of him ('bad woman'). From there, his phone has not stopped sonar: Indigo Lola, Aitana, Mami Pigeon ...

The pop world was fixed on him to make him a 'lifting' 'urban' and, once the operation has come out successfully, he has hung the robe and has made the opposite way. "Before he was more tucked on the Mainstream wheel, looking for the hit," he explains. "I also went to Miami and Colombia, and I dedicated myself to that other kind of compositions, more punctual, in which you can not go so much to the detail of creating a sound, a project, a speech. A solid piece like 'El Madrid' ' [From C. Tangana] or my album ".

"The pop has been the constant music in my life and the first one who caught my attention." The memory comes to the case to understand that melancholic air of 'there must be something more': "For example, the 'Britpop' was the first cultural movement with which I connected at a very deep level, as very flipped, of knowing me all Songs I had to be about 10 years and I kept it, I did not share it with anyone, because I was ashamed and my friends were in another move, in the music 'Mákina'. I did not connect with that, I thought toy music and still I had not found an electronics that told me anything. "

From there, Alizz went to the Spanish independent pop, the 'Dream pop' of Cocteau Twins ... "And that kind of atmospheres have always accompanied me. He was not conscious, but he had a pending debt with all those genres, because I had not put on that, I had been very far from what is really my essence. And, suddenly, I will not only come back to that, but I also find that my voice makes sense by writing this kind of letters and in this kind of Music. There I had the feeling of: Fuck, how did I not realize? "

The electronics has for him "that coldest point, where you are a little more distant from your emotions, in a place more related to the euphoria. But the lacrimilla does not fall. When you explain something more mundane is when you really connect with those emotions" .

For example, the threat of failure that looms over 'no longer vouchers', where AlizzZ and Tangana fantasize with "stay out". "It's laughing a bit of yourself, it's something I do enough and I also share it with Pucho," he says. "I remembered those conversations that we have and it seems cool to put it on the table, because it is something that people identify themselves, those who dedicate themselves to art and everyone in general. We all have that fear of not serving at all ".

And then, of course, the 'morning': "Before starting the album I did not know that I was going to write about this, but as I was doing it, and from the beginning, I realized that the things that I recur are Those where I look more fragile. "

What he likes about that universe is that "there is a lot of drama in those situations, but in positive, not that it ended up in the hospital, but a love that emerges and that goes off in that more vulnerable circumstance party. There happen some Things that touch me, that seem very exciting and that I had the need to explain. I do not know if I'm going to continue to have it or if I'm going to change about the things that make me vibrate. But it was clear that if that connected me Emotionally, I was going to connect with others too. " Sometimes, even, with unexpected effects: "For you to see the level of perception of each one, there has been a politician, I will not say who, who put the song 'I do not feel anything' [whose chorus is: 'Put a Shot for me '] while inaugurating a park.

Which appeals to another of the pillars of the album: the threads that bind us to our fellow men, despite the sorrows: drugs, love, nostalgia. "Apart from being a subject, I suppose, quite chemical, that neurotransmitters, endorphins or whatever they are called are very similar ... it's really the same as when you eat: that kind of pleasures, the things that move us, the Instincts, the impulses ... are prehistoric. At the end we are animals, things that feel and who are here lost in the infinity of the universe. "

It is not bad at a time when the identity and political divisions are exacerbated: "Sometimes I comforted the fact of feeling that I am like a perrillo that is around. What happens that we have more elaborate abstract concepts. But someone who vote Vox has the same neurotransmitters that Bildu has and that is what unites them. "

That interest in the common denominators makes it difficult to locate AlizzZ in a given geographical space, starting with its accent. "I am a son of immigrants," he says. "And the area on the periphery of Barcelona is very Castellanoarlante. I, for example, I am. And especially Castelldefels is a fame of being land of Charnegos. I speak perfectly Catalan. What happens is that the accent of the periphery is more castelianized . And people are surprised that I say 'ejécque', 'callao' ... but we are talking like that. Like a chunk of the street, there we have a Spanish 'thousand milks'. So many times I have been told If I am from Murcia or Madrid. "

Speaking of the capital of the Kingdom, what has been stuck to AlizzZ of C Tangana and what a trace do you think he has left in Madrid? "We have influenced us a lot in an unconscious way," explains Quirrante. "I come over the electronics and I flooded the Pucho project with what I knew, this part of vanguard, and he, who came from Rap and the RNB, is incredible structuring and I have learned a lot from the pop hook." And, between the two, they have gone to the organic. "Because at the end for us the production and the composition go hand in hand, everything happens at the same time and the aesthetics of production affects what is going to be written and the melodies that are going to be done. And vice versa: it's one thing That is going through ".

Thus, they have created "a whole work methodology that is not written. We do not have some 'ten commandments', but there are enough things that we repented almost without wanting, that we have developed together and it is difficult to apply with others, to which you have to 'educate' to get into your world. " That connection is complicated, she admits. "You can only get it on longer projects, such as making Amaia album, we already started having our words to explain things within the study, at a creative level."

Alizzz has always said that his favorite group is the planets. Hence the importance of closing this record with Jota. "I was a weekend at home and we went down with the bike to Granada, took me to the bar where they always go with colleagues of all life, I was in the studio where all their discs have been recorded with a 24 tracks and that is At Jota's house ... it was like being involved in his songs, "he recalls.

"He is a super hospital person," he keeps remembering. "When I got to the room at home where I slept I had left a new toothpaste and brush in the sink, the truth, it was a gift to meet you".

Hence his gratitude: "It is an act of generosity on the other hand, because it does not owe anything to anyone or absolutely need anything. It is an icon of pop in Spanish and one of the best composers have existed in contemporary Spanish music. For me , It is located in the Olympus along with Sabina, Fito, Robe Iniesta or the same Pucho, which is entering that. Everyone in his move. "

And what do you think about the music that the music in which you have worked is seen as a recovery of Spaniard by young people? "The musicians put something on the table and each one makes the interpretation that he wants, takes it to his land and uses it as a weapon throwing to explain that he is right. They absolutely have everything the right to do it, because art is an abstract thing Each one is free to take it on the side that is, "he replies. "In my case, I am not from Madrid, I have not lived both casticism, but it seems interesting, is part of our culture and I believe that the way that is represented in 'El Madrid' is very suggestive. And that's why it has arrived to so many people. "
