Gustavo Madrid doesn´t need too much introduction. He´s the creative force of several musical projects since his school days: No Mercy, Black Velvet, Maten al Disc-Jockey, Su Real Orden, 69 am, Mutantes Melancólicos, Asustados Unidos and finally, NO:ID.
Singer. Guitar player. Sometimes, keyboard player. With certain interest on digital instruments, where he finds versatility and the possibility of breaking through. Always, songwriter and composer of a music hard to put a label on.
Even though he´s got soft manners and a good education, he´s rampant, stubborn and untamable. He can be bored of his successes, but he´s never bored when he explores and experiments new ways of making music. He prefers a song composed on a single loop rather than a song that repeats past accomplishments.
On his lyrics he doesn´t want to tell stories; he leaves that to a short story or to a novel. For his songs, he prefers sentences that act like lashes, images, ideas; that are musical, without a complete or obvious sense and, if it´s possible, the ones that can awaken questions to be left unanswered.
Madrid owns an enviable record collection. He listens to music since he wakes up in the morning until he goes back to bed at night. He collects records since his teenage years. He affirms that when he didn´t have enough money to buy new records he tried hard to get onto the busses without paying the fare; so he could save, within a couple of weeks, some money to buy another vinyl record.
One of his passions is record´s cover art. He believes that the moment he takes out the record form the envelope to put it on the audio chain is pure magic and that most of that magic comes from the graphic art giving sense to the whole oeuvre.
