CARLOS JEAN, MALA RODRIGUEZ, DOLLAR SELMOUNI AND CAROLINA YUSTE GO “SKY HIGH”
The differential of this novel irruption of Carlos Jean in the Latin urban style is, on the one hand, the category and diversity of the artists involved and, on the other hand, the elegant production: “For me, as a musician, making films is the most complete thing there is. We live in a industry very focused in the single and being able to work on a soundtrack is wonderful”, says the artist who also adds his voice to the single. “I think there is a word that is transversal to the film and the song: passion” and details “La Mala has given that touch to the song to make it a hit and Dollar brings the reflective part, with his brutal talent for singing.
For Mala Rodríguez, HASTA EL CIELO: “It was a gift. Everything has flowed very well… I think it has the essence of the film. I feel very lucky.” And she continues: “This song brings a lot to my career. Once again, I’m showing another way of expressing myself, and that’s what I like and what I enjoy, getting different things out of me. The verses in this song seem elevated to me.
Dollar Selmouni, who plays in the film the inseparable colleague of the main character, Miguel Herrán, adds his R&B stamp to the song, with his particular voice, warm as soul and deep as flamenco: “I am very proud and I feel very excited. Making the film and now the single, I find it incredible. Both the song and the film are pure rhythm, speed, adrenaline”, explains the popular rapper and urban music reference.
Finally, Carolina Yuste is the interpretative part within the song: “It’s the reflection of Estrella, her character, within the song,” explains Carlos Jean.
HASTA EL CIELO is Carlos Jean’s fifth collaboration with Daniel Calparsoro: “It has been, once again, a thrilling adventure. I worked on textures that had to do with electronic music, that their harmonies told the story in parallel, that combined well with the beating, the action, the breaking of glass, thus combining a great soundtrack. “To that we added rap and some songs, like C. Tangana and Rosalía’s, which help to enter the film”.
SKY IS THE LIMIT
With a script by Jorge Guerricaechevarría, SKY HIGH is inspired by real events. For its director, Daniel Calparsoro, “SKY HIGH is a jewel that I have coveted for years and that I have finally managed to realize. It’s a movie high that goes through your eyes, goes through your guts and goes straight to your heart”.
Miguel Herrán returns to the big screen as the protagonist of SKY HIGH: “A cocktail of emotions and action with which I have given 100%,” in the words of the Goya 2016 winning actor. He is accompanied by Luis Tosar, Asia Ortega and Carolina Yuste as the star, “a girl from the neighborhood, from the working class, who has very clear objectives and who somehow wants to become a woman who is in charge of her destiny,” explains the Goya 2019 winning actress.
The quartet is supported by Patricia Vico, Fernando Cayo, César Mateo and debutants Richard Holmes and rapper Ayax, among others.
In addition to Dollar Selmouni and Ayax’s film debut, the film is the first foray into cinema by other rap artists, references on the current urban music scene in Spain, such as Jarfaiter, Ramseys, Carlytos Vela and Rukeli,
Ángel is a boy from the suburbs of Madrid whose life will change forever the day he meets Estrella in a discotheque. After a fight with Poli, the girl’s possessive boyfriend, he discovers that Ángel has a talent for getting into trouble and, more importantly, for getting out of them. That’s why he encourages him to join his band of robers who have the entire police force of Madrid in check.
Ángel’s ambition will make him dive into a pyramid of robberies, easy money and shady deals, which will take him from Madrid to Ibiza. His skill will also make him the protégé of Rogelio, a capo who controls the black market in the capital, and Sole, his daughter, will be infatuated with him.
Ángel’s climb will be unstoppable, and he will soon become one of the country’s most wanted robbers. And as the police siege intensifies, he will have to decide between Sole or the love of his life, Estrella.
A journey that began in the humblest of suburbs and has as its goal the highest thing: the sky.
