Creating surrealistic Sounds In Music
Dali se desdibuja
Talent, pure energy and melodious havoc come together in the music of Carlos Dali. His mixes parallel the surrealist art of his namesake, artist Salvador Dali, in composition and emotional texture. The Spanish master can be said to use color schemes as interwoven wave-like images that result in an almost musical dreamlike images. Such is Carlos Dali's style and almost psychedelic aural perception. His canvas the dance floor, his brushes the turntables, his arsenal beats and melodies with which he paints aggressively a subtle yet marked journey of color-like sound. Through his trademark dramatic intros, Carlos Dali sets the tone for the particular joyride to come. Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Dali moved with his family to the suburbs of Connecticut shortly before the age of 5. Living there for the next 24 years, the music that surrounded him, radically unlike the music he remembered from his native homeland, was to become central in his life. Upon arriving in the States, Disco was evolving into the mainstream and commercial pop was taking over the airwaves. His influences are as eclectic and extreme as the artists that ruled the industry at the time like Neil Diamond and Parliament, just to name two that were very different at both ends of the spectrum of music. As the 80s arrived and music yet again metamorphosed, Carlos developed an ear and a taste for electronic and synthesized sounds. Pop, Freestyle, Disco, Industrial and Gothic developed distinctive beats and hooks all their own. Each genre's idiosyncrasies became indelibly ingrained Dali's ear. Hence, came, his joyous creativity. Having developed an encyclopedic knowledge for the commercial greats, Dali's ear beckoned him to venture onto new ground. Curious as all Capricorns, he craved the new in dance and music. Sinfully diverse, trendsetting New York City naturally followed. Then came the now iconic Sound Factory, where Carlos discovered that New York City DJs often reserved their best for the religiously dedicated twilight crowd of after-hours in the 90s.The post-5am transition from impressive to outer-worldly hypnotized him. Along came legendary Junior Vasquez, whose masterful command of the dance floor and unorthodox reconstruction of beats revolutionized Dali. Like a faithful churchgoer, Carlos became a Sound Factory regular and a Junior disciple, ever to be influenced by enlightened hymns anchored by tribal beats and deliciously dark rhythms. Dali's future as a DJ was forged; he would create his own aural reality and command his own lair. Thousands of hours of practice and experimentation cemented Dali's command of musical concept and theme; then came compiling his sets. His distinct infusion of emotion would become his signature as would be his flair for creating a kaleidoscope of virtual sights and colors through sound. Ever more comfortable with his talent, in 1998 Carlos began working as a DJ in New Haven, CT where he hooked up with Connecticut's Premier Nightclub Promoters, where he rotated with other DJs at a club called BAR. Once settled in New York City, Dali landed a gig spinning for La Mancha Video release parties at club King. Dali also won several DJ contests at club Stonewall, where he was consequently hired as a recurring guest DJ. In 2002, Carlos hooked up with one of the former promoters of the early 90s Cafe con Leche and started working with him on his new Uncut party held at the newly remodeled Stonewall. The new party became a hit and the new it place for a new generation of gay partiers. The owners took notice and offered him an additional gig spinning a Friday night party called Icon, which targeted a more mature crowd with an interest in underground trends. A DJ by vocation, Dali plays private parties for both his peers and industry personalities, private affairs that are known to attract throngs of crashers. A member of the House of Aviance, Dali also donates his time to fundraising for various causes, especially when the cause involves underprivileged kids, one of his major interests. Last year, Carlos was asked to spin for Bacardi at the 2006 Gay Pride parade. A crowed of over 20,000 swayed to his beats and rhythms that day. This past summer he was asked to guest spot at the Annual FIBO Party at Fire Island and a private affair for The Howl Festival committee in the Lower East Side. And that is only the beginning. The word is out that Carlos Dali is an up and coming talent, a force to be reckoned with. His daring and unpredictable synthesis of tribal and progressive beats, hard house and sultry vocals distinguish him from the crowd. His sets represent not only journeys in sound but also mood-altering adventure, a rollercoaster of cyclically delightful and trance-like suspense. Welcome to the world of Carlos Dali, a place where virtual color and texture meld and hypnotize through sound. Such is his philosophy, his unique approach to house music, a genre that for Carlos is a temple for the masses in and of itself. Relax your senses and take in Dali's overdose of aural emotion and deluge of synergy.
