Fantasma is Sunsplash latest release. It’s a collection of 14 tracks by Alberto Stangarone and guest artists. The album was mixed by Claudio Ramirez at Cromo Audio lab in Caracas, Venezuela and mastered by Eric Oberthaler in California.

Since it’s release few days ago, I’ve not been able to get the melody of Caracas Te Quiero out of my head. Fantasma offers a musical trip encompassing grip-hop, electronic, post-acid, techno, dub, house and splashes of soul, funk and latin. I must admit that when it comes to music, I’m not an expert. But, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying it. Download or stream all 14 tracks FREE in this link.

In my teaching career I’ve had students coming from diverse backgrounds. From set designers, writers, gardeners, illustrators to accomplished musicians. I have remained friends with many of them including Alberto Stangarone, the talented musician from Venezuela who is known in the music scene as Sunsplash.

In my design class, Alberto’s work showed his musical training. His graphics have rhythm, texture, color, contrast, depth and even euphoria. The same qualities, and more, are present in his trippy and insanely contagious album “Fantasma.” The artwork was done by Alberto with Venezuelan designer Valentina Alvarado. Even though, Alberto is already making a splash in the underground music scene as Sunsplash, I believe that he also has a promising future in the visual communication world. Some people just have “it,” know what I mean?

Enjoy it and pass it on!
