Meet Julian Borrego, a sought after multi-instrumentalist, Los Angeles based producer and singer-songwriter. Hailing from an extensive musical family with a world famous guitar playing grandpa (Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles), it is to no surprise that Borrego created his own musical endeavour. Combining dynamic and evoking funk melodies, psychedelic grooves and strong guitar riffs, Borrego has created a fresh and innovative sound that accentuates the genre-blending eclecticism of today.
Leading single ‚Small Talk‘ showcases Borrego’s distinctive sound. It’s ambient dissonance gradually progresses into a synthy, psychedelic funk anthem, creating a colorful and vibrant hit.
‘Xeriscape‘ fuses psychedelic grooves, with hazy guitars and a steady funk bass line. It’s spiritual thematically, inspired by Borrego’s interest in traditional Indian philosophy and ‘maya’, meaning the fluctuating nature of joy and suffering. Borrego explains, “I think the feelings that create my music are often an expression of ‘maya’; some higher, more unchanging spiritual reality, grappling with experiencing the drastic duality of being a human”.
