Epoxia is a joint project of Vate and Luar. It started at the beginning of the nineties. Luar conceived some songwriting ideas and Vate contributed in the technical and musical side. The first orientation of their music was rock and from 1997 to 1998 they recorded the primitive versions Soberbia Epiritual and El Hombe Nuevo, with Luar making the lyrics and playing the bass and making the basic layout of the songs and Vate programming and adding the general structure. The project was left alone and later, in 2001, Vate took pieces and samples of those recordings and made the versions that appear in this album, wich eventually became the “official and instrumental” versions of the two original songs. Later, in 2006, at the time of reediting and making sligth alterations to these tracks, Vate produced and added Soberbia Espiritual (Remix) and Hombre Soberbia, wich is made from samples of both tracks and works as a summary of the project.
Epoxia defined by Luar (2006):
“Surely by the affective lacks of my childhood, as an adult I always looked for to scandalize others. I tried to make always an almost extreme creative effort. As time passed by, I developed the theory of an “epoxic world” devoid of logic rules logics and plenty of new ideas, with high creative expressions and all the humor that was possible for me to express.
One day, I tried to express that into music; nevertheless, the result was very different from what I expected.
Along with Vate. I reached the conclusion that electronic music is not done by robots; music must have an intention, express a message and always tell a history. Otherwise, music will only be a series of dead sounds.
Therefore, the music of Epoxia reflects some of my thoughts and deeper desires: to be a new man, to avoid at all costs music wich ends as a collection of moans by lost love and to criticize pride in all its forms. “
