What would Androids dream about if they could? Space travel? Searching for new life?...

"Android Dreams" is a trip through a dreamy universe full of space ambiences, synthesizers, guitar solos and progressive rhythms.
The album was born in 1996, one year before I graduated in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Alcala de Henares in Madrid. That year I composed an electronic music suite called "Electronic Systems" which included seven parts, and seven different moods or ambiences. This music was created with electronic instruments but using classical music schemes I had in my mind and it was also inspired by the pioneers in electronic music and progressive rock music bands.

This suite remained unreleased until 2014, when I decided to start working on the "Android Dreams" album, and appear as tracks 03 to 09. I took another three demos from 1997 and 1998 and wrote two completely new ones (Orbiting Saturn and Human Pulses). I started from scratch, rearranging all notes, instruments and sounds, bringing them to life with new high quality sound. This process took me more than a year in the recording studio, carefully crafting them. And in this period I got the help of Nacho Ferrer (Mirage of Deep) in producing one of the newest pieces "Human Pulses" and the help of Miguel Angel Prados who wrote some lyrics for "Walking to the Stars", the most Pop-Rock track on the album, performed by Maria Esteban Ferrer and Jack Pastrami. The idea of my black strato as an "Android Guitar" walking through the stars came to life in Luis Diez Gurumeta Pictures. The circle was completed when Juan Carlos Dosdados took charge of artwork.

Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus
While Jose Luis’ excellent previous album had some more earthy elements such as Spanish guitar and world music influences, the focus for this new release is decidedly extra-terrestrial – straight off the mother ship. However, you won’t find an ethereal Hearts Of Space-type recording on “Android Dreams.” Make no mistake – this album rocks. The recording is primarily instrumental and the sound reflects distant echoes of progressive rock (Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant), space rock (Pink Floyd, Gong, Hawkwind), and electronic/ new age music (Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream). The album first began in the mid to late 90’s, and has a classic sound reflective of that era, but with some contemporary touches. While this style of music may not be everybody’s cup of tea, I’m sure that listeners who enjoy the sci-fi and rock influences mentioned above will find this sonic time capsule to be a treasure. I certainly do.

Jose Luis’ soaring electric guitar takes flight over percolating sequences, trippy synthesizer, electronic effects, and powerful rock drumming. Right from the start the message is: fasten your seat belt and prepare for lift-off. This is definitely not an album for meditation, yoga, or massage, but is a grand journey for those ready to take the trip. As an electric guitarist myself, I particularly appreciated Jose Luis’ warm singing tone on lead guitar, which made me think he had listened to a bit of Carlos Santana along the way. The synthesizers and electronics hearken back to an earlier analog era, which is now enjoying a major resurgence. Interestingly, unlike a lot of sci-fi oriented rock and electronic music, whose tracks are often ponderously long, many of the songs here are in the 3-minute range, and sometimes less. This provides a nice sense of flow and a complete enough musical experience without it seeming like you should have packed a lunch before you started listening to the track.

I greatly enjoyed “Android Dreams,” and am very happy that Jose Luis has brought these tracks out of the archives to rework and update them so that they could be shared and appreciated.
