Checko Glen First Album

My songs talk about the importance of living a full and present life. I raise reflections that question myself and others and I build metaphors that remind us of the value of awareness, all to the rhythm and harmony of various styles that make my music something new and unpredictable.

I am Checko Glen, Latin American musician and composer based in Barcelona for more than 12 years.

Some time ago after participating in several musical projects, I embarked to create a solo project with the intention of connecting with people and spreading an emotion. That is when Checko Glen was born.

It’s never easy to classify one’s music. In my case it’s perhaps the result in diversity of music styles I have come across down my path (funk, soul, acid jazz, electronic, latin). That is what makes it unique and sincere.

My songs transmit a message of mindfulness, they propel the senses and seduce the ear. I'm sure they'll excite you and make you vibrate to the rhythm that runs through my veins.

For me, composing is a way of opening a door, of letting go and letting flow everything stored within. Little by little we gain ground to discovery and rediscovery through this process. It is a communion between instinct and emotion.

What I am going to do?

I will record and produce my first studio album. For this I need your help to finance this production and achieve this goal.

I will count on the participation and co-production of my colleagues and producers of La Atlantida Estudio. With their experience and musical taste, they will help me to strengthen and define the sound of this first album. Julian Tobon Glen, a New York based musician will serve with additional production. He will make a special appearance, adding electronic elements to this musical work. This will impart a current and fresh approach to the project.

I will also count on the participation of a staff of exceptional instrumentalists. I will gradually keep you updated on who they will be on my project blog.

The album art will be designed by the Italian artist Davide Sabbatini and the graphic direction by Carolina Pacheco Glen.

Thanks to your help and contribution I will complete the recording and production of my first album. By contributing with the pre-sale phase of the album and acquiring other Checko Glen merchandise and goods, you will be a part of the realization of my goal.

How will the proceeds of your participation be directed?

This campaign’s proceeds will go to the recording, mixing, mastering, manufacturing, art design and promotion of the album along with the release of a video clip of the first single.

If the target is surpassed, that money will be invested in promotion.

    Viejo Sebas! Feliz cumple y aquí le dejo un detallito. No es mucho, pero con cariño por ese proyecto del cual me siento participe, aunque sea un poco, por el tiempo en el que el trabajamos juntos. Espero que vaya todo muy bien!!! Abrazo.

#05 / Ya puedes escuchar el primer sencillo

El martes pasado, martes 13 para los supersticiosos, lanzamos el primer sencillo del disco.

El sencillo o single lleva por nombre 'Caminar o correr', y cuenta con la participación o featuring (en este mundo de la música casi todo se conoce más por su versión en inglés que por su traducción al español) de dos grandes artistas nacionales que añaden luz y fuerza a esta canción, Lidia Guevara (voz) y K. Connan (beats y scratch).

El encargado de llevar el ritmo es el tremendo baterista catalán Arnau Montfort.
Y para darle un toque de color a la producción hemos contado con la participación especial del contrabandista extremeño Valen Rodriguez.
Los demás instrumentos, teclados, guitarras, bajos eléctricos, sintetizadores, coros y voces son de quién les escribe, Checko Glen.

Pero todo este trabajo no hubiera sido posible sin la buena energía, atrevimiento y experiencia de Mario Patiño, quién ha sido el productor de esta hermosa canción y también de todo el disco.

#04 / Ya estamos más cerca!

Queridos Mecenas!

Ya falta menos para terminar la producción del disco!

Ayer terminamos la primera fase, la fase de grabación, la cual consistió en definir y enfocar la sonoridad del disco, crear arreglos atrevidos, registrar baterías, bajos, teclados, guitarras y voces, incluir participaciones especiales de cantantes y músicos tremendos, y sobre todo, de permitirnos crear sin límites descubriendo y explotando la esencia de cada canción para que brille, resuene y emocione.

Todo esto ha coincidido con el nacimiento de mi hija Uma el 12 de agosto, lo cual sin lugar a duda ha sembrado una energía super positiva de luz y amor que ya ha comenzado a brotar como fuente de creación y entrega en los sonidos y voces que se han registrado en el disco.

El siguiente paso es la mezcla, organizar los planos sonoros, dar profundidad, potenciar y maximizar todo lo… read more

#03 / En que estamos

Como seguramente algunos de ustedes ya habrán visto en las redes sociales, la semana pasada empezamos a grabar!

Estuvimos este jueves y viernes grabando baterías con Arnau Abbey, creando ritmos, replanteando estructuras y sobre todo pasándolo super bien! Ha sido increíble esta primera etapa de crear los cimientos y el engranaje que soportará esta música. La próxima semana seguimos con bajos y teclados.

El resultado me tiene super contento, no solo por el sonido y facilidad de trabajo con Arnau sino también por el trabajo con mi amigo y productor Mario Patiño, quién está potenciando mi música y haciendo de esta producción algo tremendo.

Estaremos grabando lo que queda de Julio, algo de Agosto y la previsión es terminar de grabar en Septiembre, para luego mezclar y masterizar.
Si todo sigue según el calendario, en Octubre estará listo el merchandising y haremos el lanzamiento del disco.

Checko Glen se viene fuerte y potente!

#02 / Objetivo conseguido!

Queridísimos Mecenas!

Primero que nada, muchísimas gracias por el amor y el apoyo. No podemos creer lo maravilloso y la generosidad recibida para poder financiar este proyecto.

Faltan 9 días para que finalice la campaña, y ya hemos conseguido el objetivo inicial. Quiero aprovechar el impulso y el mismo hecho de que seguimos en campaña, para marcar un “Segundo Objetivo” y llegar aún más lejos con este primer disco, a muchas más personas, y a muchos más corazones.

El Segundo Objetivo será llegar a 1000€ más, los cuales serán invertidos en la promoción y difusión del disco a nivel nacional e internacional tanto en medios de comunicación digitales y análogos, como radio, televisión, blogs, revistas, etc, y publicidad y promoción en redes sociales, como Facebook, Twitter, Youtube.

Gracias de nuevo por tu apoyo!!

#01 / +50 Mecenas!

Ya somos más de 50 mecenas y se ve una fuerte tendencia de que vamos a superar nuestra meta!
Gracias a cada uno de ustedes por su apoyo! Sigue corriendo la voz a amigos y familiares.
