Belen Vidal as Bflecha has been locked at her laboratory in Vigo, Spain for more than 5 years deciphering the genetic code of second millennium RnB, analyzing the DNA of experimental electronica, creating amalgams of chrome-plated House and 3D Garage and decrypting the grammar of the FM classics from the past 30 years in search for the perfect equation of 21st century music.After successful experiments such as Ceja de Carnival (Arkestra; 2010) and Qvasi Naves (Arkestra;
2012) where dance music, avant - garde and synthwave hold hands, finally arrives βeta (Arkestra; 2013),
her long format debut; An intrincate essay of futuristic pop, sophisticated electronica and contemporary
RnB sounding yet surprisingly direct and timeless.
Twelve songs written and produced by BFlecha and co-produced by Mwëslee (with who runs Arkestra)
where we also find collaborations from her close circle as Hosoi from the band Delorean, Arkestra own
TiMOTi and Noaipre or iconoclast rapper Arufe, whose contributions do nothing but help reach a higher
dimension to the already polyhedral musical universe of the Galician artist.
βeta is a fantasy adventure, a technologic safari, an interstellar journey of cinematic inspiration in search
of eternal love and scientific and metaphysical answers to universal questions. BFlecha's lyrics are a
tribute to optimism, to those who imagine that other worlds are possible and are not afraid to cross the
bounds of reason looking for other realities, from Ray Bradbury to Sun Ra, from Brandy to Stanley
Kubrick, from Phillip K Dick to The-Dream, from Bioy Casares to Mecano, from Terry Guilliam to Vangelis,
from Sade to Zamyatin.
A considerable effort where we finally see crystallize the aesthetic that Bflecha has been developing
over those years, a natural alloy of the most diverse styles with an absolutely personal sound and her
lush, breezy vocals in her prime, showing a conceptual, lyrical and sonic coherence unparalleled in our
latitudes that put her as one of the key names at the forefront of the digital pop movement.
