about

PRESS NOTE:

“Despertar” is one of the most intriguing and beautiful albums to emerge from the Spanish’s electronic music scene in 2017. A celebrated debut by the Elizondo (Pamplona) based artist Piek, one of a kind emerged from the most versatile musical scene, not in vain he creates inspired by the magic of great names such as Sigur Ros, Moderat or Bonobo.
“Despertar” is the title chosen for the debut LP of this producer and dedicated music lover from Elizondo. One of a kind due to his versatility exploring into skittering beats and a magnetic electronic music. On the album no two tracks are wholly similar; each have their own distinguishing features and incredible songwriting. Are you awake for a unique journey into synth soundtracks, contemporary soul music, futuristic hip-hop rhymes and floating beats?
One of the virtues contained in this album is when the artist builds his songs around guest vocals, adding a unique panache but also sacrificing total control. When Piek identifies and aligns his instrumental aesthetic with the emotive output of his guests - Ria, Ryan Roush, Cheney, Kash, Hokhok, Zebulon and Jim Hast- the results are just amplifying and electrifying. “Despertar” contains also an audible gold featuring by the music-composer Fabel and a Tony Phillips poem.

Track Name: The Son With The Father's Gun (Feat. Ria, Ryan Roush & Cheney)
Ryan Roush:
I’m in the rat race, them fat faces
takin this to another level I get the masses to mass hate us
so I put a little gas in my gas tank
y’all think yall the last but your ass ain’t
cause I’m bringin the rear up
…turn it up loud so your ass can hear us
they say that I’m not the one to give it up and they’re right
I’m one of the ones who live it up and I’m air tight
and they’re like, don’t get it twisted youngster
they ain’t even tryin’ to have a fair fight
chasin the chickens, n’ I kick it I do it err night
flickin’ the bic n just hittin the wicked the air like
thick with the smoke and it’s 22.5 farenheit
them bitches is trippin’ they tryin’ to get me like a parasite


Chorus by Ria:
The son with the father’s gun
A sure shot son of a gun
The son with the father’s gun

Boy that itchy trigger finger got you good
Yeah that itchy trigger finger shot you



Cheney:
I’m the epitome of not being given the same chances
Gimme a Blank canvas… doc
When it rains Im not the one doing the same dances
Biting they heads off like some Prayin mantis
And I bet they aint no more Blank glances
Party all night if the party is hype
Hoggin the mic like Im gon off the white
Part of me’s like
It’s time to throw the towel in
Other half of me like a rabid dog growlin
Battin a thousand
Yeah my house empty
But with a pen Im Da Vinci
Leonardo with my collar tucked
Game be polished up
Dames they holla… but
Matter of fact go head and holla slut
This thang need swallowed up
A couple of white boys who steady rap correct
In your stereo at your neck with that mass effect

Chorus by Ria:
The son with the father’s gun
A sure shot son of a gun
The son with the father’s gun

Boy that itchy trigger finger got you good
Yeah that itchy trigger finger shot you
Track Name: Breathe (Feat. Kash)
So you will know
I just wanna breathe


I can feel you kiss me through the storm
Maybe it was time i wrote the song
So you will know
So you will know where your heart belongs

I know i have wasted too much time
I know I have tried out all at once
You know that our hearts still beat as one
Glad to say baby this, is where you belong



In your arms
In your arms,
I wrote the song, where your heart belongs
Where your heart belongs



I can feel you kiss me through the storm
Maybe it was time i wrote the song
So you will know
So you will know where your heart belongs

I know i have wasted too much time
I know I have tried out all at once
You know that our hearts still beat as one
Glad to say baby this, is where you belong
Track Name: I Saw You (Feat. Hokhok)
I think I thought I saw you
On the roofs of Qarth
Jumping off the windows
Claim my name
Running right after me
Track Name: F.R.E.E. (Feat. Zebulon & Ryan Roush)
Let me testify
Bare witness to this
How certain
And instruments
Take me back to my Genesis
And now I feel like Collins something's calling in the air tonight
Got me prepare for flight
Spark electricity
to raise my Fahrenheit
Like I'm starring at the lights
On a Paris Night
Energy I store it up like a terabyte
When I gigging tunnel vision
Transmission of this wisdom
Through your system
I'm assisting with that grove and
Lifting ya mood and
Back up off the wall
To get ya shoes moving
To Drums relentless
And bass booming
I talk to the earth
While I walk on the moon and
Rub shoulders
With the stars
On the boulevard
Where the sun never sets
And there's no Tomorrow
No depression no regrets
I don't feel the sorrow
So if wanna be free
you can come with me

Chorus:
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Can i get you to smile (smile anyway)
smile anyway
uoh uoh uoh uoh uoh can i
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain

It's time to escape your day
Reset and press play
And let the stress fade
With all the problems
You ain't ready to face
Been running down dreams
You ain't ready to chase
Halt grind stop
That vault in ya mind locked
Let's crack the code
Unload ya thoughts
Now Unglue from the tube
Unplug from the drug
That the government is Funneling
I'm wonder when I get to where I'm headed while I bust down the door or just wander in
No paint just a story from my pen
No saint I was born a son of sin
If you're relating
Then were related
Sharing the same airspace
Lungs inflated
From one human to the next
Let the music reconnect us
So we can be free
Come with me


Chorus:
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Can i get you to smile (smile anyway)
smile anyway
uoh uoh uoh uoh uoh can i
Can i get you to smile
Smile will ease the pain
Follow me now
if you came to get low
I'll show you how
After the disco
then came the sound
created for those
who aim to get down
Track Name: That's Me (Trippin') (Feat. Jim Hast)
VERSE

Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time


Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time

Motherfuckers preachin' I be steppin' out of line


CHORUS

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while

VERSE

Ain't nothin' like trippin' on Koolaid
Ain't nothin' like rippin' it and getting paid
It's a habit of mine
to dig it one more time

Motherfuckers preachin' I be steppin' out of line


CHORUS

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while

That's me that's the way I roll
That's me reachin' cruise control
That's me that's the way I rule
I keep you rockin for a while
Track Name: Avalanche (Feat. Hokhok)
Beyond the storm
 we felt invisible.

Our heart were stones
 among the snow
But no one climbed those broken walls before

Don't fall
, don't fall

Thunders crash on top

They turned cities into dust

Now the avalanche

Don't fall
, don't fall
Track Name: Baztan (A Tony Phillips Poem)
Sonic tales roll over Elizondo’s timeless hills
Calling, enticing the world
Frequencies ride the wind, turning tall grass electric: wired stems root to tip
Transforming pastures to amphitheatres
Stories oscillate: everlasting love reverberates, one night stands echo, traditions and identity rebound
The Basque reaches out at the speed of sound - crying let’s dance, let’s dance

In the valley, the river surges with optimism, exhilarating hearts
Strings, bass, woodwind, percussion, swim in formation: orchestrated movements
Piano notes rise up from the reeds, seeking the golden light: then disappear in murky depths
Silent depths of pain and doubt that weave the narrative of sorrows
Organic beats pulsate through all arteries in Elizondo
The heart of the Basque reaches out - let’s dance, let’s dance
