En sus palabras de despedida puede leerse “Don’t be sad because it’s over, be happy because it happened”. Pero lo cierto es que no podemos negar que nos ha venido un buen golpe de pena al encontrarnos con su adiós en las redes sociales. Pere Solé y Fabrizio Rizzin (Downliners Sekt) anuncian su disolución.

Desde aquel “Hello Lonely, Hold the Nation” (Disboot, 2010) hasta su último trabajo, “Silent Ascent” (Infiné, 2014), la dupla ha ido recopilando una notable cantidad de buenas críticas tanto en el plano nacional como internacional. Convirtiéndose en uno de los nombres más potentes del talento estatal, Downliners Sekt se despiden dejándonos como último recuerdo el que fuera por elegido por diferentes medios especializados como uno de los mejores discos del pasado año: “Silent Ascent”.

Aquí el comunicado que han emitido desde su facebook:

So this is goodbye…

It’s been 16 years since we started making music together as Downliners Sekt and we’ve spent some of the best times of our lives working to keep this project alive. From the very beginning we’ve been committed to delivering the best music we could create, experimenting and always pushing forward, awaiting the day we would be listened to and understood as an original act.

A thousand-mile-journey is never made by fretting about how long it will take or how hard it will be. Ours turned out to be a very long, exciting and fulfilling one. When we look back, we are nothing but happy and proud. But now we feel the time has come to end this chapter of our lives and follow different paths. We will continue making music, sure, just not together.

We’d like to thank all of our friends, who gave us their unyielding support throughout this epic adventure. Thanks to all those who collaborated and offered their assistance, and who most times asked for nothing in return. Thanks to every promoter who gave us the chance to play live. Thanks to the management at Live in Dallas for their hard work. Thanks to the labels b:cuts, 
F-Communications, Disboot, Facture, Hivern Discs and Infiné for being crazy enough to publish our music and, above all, thanks to every person who took the time to listen to our records and let us know we’d touched their soul.

Don’t be sad because it’s over, be happy because it happened.
