Their songs are full of gentle, dreamy and enigmatic beats, swinging between today’s signature electronic music with names like Jon Hopkins, Talabot and Apparat and suggestive atmospheres with imaginative futuristic soundtracks.
Zabala is led by musician-producer Jon Aguirrezabalaga, one of the catalysers of the Biscay scene through El Tigre Sounds Recording Studio and the group WAS (formerly known as We Are Standard), with which they’ve earned such important awards like El Ojo Crítico and the MTV Europe Music Award for best Spanish artist.
Cristina Lizarraga, the voice at the front of Belako, offers a suggestive vocal base to the songs “Vik” and “Navas”. This EP was produced by Zabala and Guy Davie (John Cale, Michael Kiwanuka, Hot Chip, etc.).
In the very first week, it reached #1 in Itunes Spain under the electronic category as well as #13 worldwide for all categories.
Their experimental electronic music has also grabbed the attention of several international Spotify publishers who have highlighted their work in different playlists.
