Gradiel is without a doubt a diamond for the music industry and he is getting the shape edged to perfection with each song he releases! ”Mi Manera” his third single that will be releasing soon will be without a doubt another latin hit.

”Placeres” his second single has been a huge success due to his warm and sensual voice, singing in the most affecting and resonant way. His sound compels the listener to dance and move to the tempo of his lyrics. One thing that sets Gradiel apart for us is precisely this, the respect and beauty of his lyrics. Striving away from the viral and obscene ”reggaeton” that only focus on sexual behaviours, Gradiel, gives us a more elevated and improved latin genre.

His wild ambition and passion is giving him fruits as only on release day the song was already being played by thousands as well as added to hundreds of playlists around the world. - The Algorithm Agency

You can feel the talent, the details, the masculinity of his voice and we’re extremely happy to announce that his second single titled ”Mi Manera” will be dropping shortly as ”Placeres” keeps growing!

Wait because it gets better! After listening a bit, we wanted more than Placeres (that is of course on all our playlists) that’s when we found that he has another awesome hit called ”3 Copas”, another danceable song that will make you start moving without even wanting to!

What else can we say? We are big fans already and we recommend you to follow him on Instagram!

""Placeres" by Gradiel"

The vocals are slick, the bass is thick, and the riffs rip. Overall, Gradiel knows how to put a composition together, and the "Girlfriend Test" returned a {voice = pretty, interpretation = i like that } value, so these are all good signs!

Gradiel puts out a great example of the ever more popular crossover hit with his newest single, 'Placeres'. There are a lot of things to love about this banger - I'll try to go down and hit a few of them while leaving you some room to find some of your own things in there.

The composition is great. Leveling is at a good spot and you can tell special attention was given to each layer to make sure that it fits into its space. One thing I can always appreciate in a mix is when I can notice that compression has happened in the sense that "Oh this mix wouldn't have sounded the same without it". Gradiel does a great job bringing the vocals into the whole thing as well, leaving plenty of room for the music to grab at you in between verses. The Latin vibe here is also off the charts. This song is practically the perfect mood-setter for any party you're trying to kick-off. Especially when it comes to getting your body moving.

That brings me back to one of the important parts about 'Placeres' - the vocals. They are... spot on. He has a magnificent singing voice and he doesn't overdo the mixing when it comes to effects on the lyrical parts. It's more and more testament to the attention to detail that was put into something like this - reverb; tuned into milliseconds. Delay; cut down. Attacks; leveled out. Gradiel has a voice that is entrancing and appealing and he makes sure that you know it by putting it in the perfect spot of the music.

I've caught wind that there may be an acoustic release of this song, so I would definitely keep your eyes and ears peeled for that one. If you think this voice sounds sexy behind a phat bass line, I'm willing to wager you will have to file papers after this gets slapped on a good ol' wood body. Make sure you check out this new banger and cross your fingers you get to hear this in a club sometime after this pandemic winds down.

'Placeres' has been a gentle reminder I need to freshen up on my Spanish, but I don't think that will take away from it potentially being up there with 'Despacito' and songs of the like in terms of Latin-Pop music charts. Check out more Gradiel below and let me know what you think of this song, too! Don't forget to help spread the word by sharing this article and following those things! - Can's Headphones
