Proxima is back with the re-issue of the album "Nostalgia De Lo Humano" by the Spanish musician and sound engineer based in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Javier Segura.
As Javier Segura himself says, his head is full of textures, rhythms and melodies. Through his textured productions, Segura opened up new dimensions to experimental music, using guitars, drum machines, trumpets, synths, or pedals.
Despite the fact that Segura has been producing music continuously since the 1970s, his recognition as a musician was for a long time limited to experimental music circles. He had always controlled his career on his own, on the fringes of the industry.
Originally released in 1986, 'Nostalgia De Lo Humano' is almost unclassifiable. For Segura, styles are another form of repression, something that serves to label and keep track of those who sees, listens, buys or plays, and especially who sells.
"Styles might have had some meaning in the last century and even earlier, because the instruments were what they were, but not anymore. Today, with all the technical possibilities that exist, it's a huge waste to lock yourself into one style."
