Azul y Negro was founded in 1981 by Carlos G. Vaso (born 1953 in Cartagena, Spain) a multi instrumentalist,songwriter and producer, and Joaquín Montoya (b. 1950 Cartagena, Spain). The first album "La Edad de los Colores" was released later that year.
The single "Me Estoy Volviendo Loco" (Going Crazy) became a hit in Europe, Japan, United States and Australia. The album "Digital" (-83) was a collection of songs from the two first albums, "La Edad de los Colores" and "La Noche" (The Night).
The album was a huge success. The band kept releasing synthpop albums: "Suspense" (84),"Mercado Común" (85) and "Babel" (86). Then they released two Maxi Singles under the Blanco Y Negro tag, called "Es El Colmo!" & "No Smoking".
Four years later the album "De Vuelta al Futuro" was released. This album had old classics that were mixed together, In "Mix Azul" & "Mix Negro".Three years later (96) a mix collection was released with the title "De Vuelta al Futuro II".
Joaquín Montoya had left the band. Vaso teamed up with Jose Antonio álvarez and finally some new songs were made again. (Vaso was very productive, and released 3 solo albums in the meantime). The new work was called "Mare Nostrum", and was released on Carlos Vaso's own company, VASO MUSIC.
Azul y Negro continued to release synthpop (see album discography) on the next albums to come. They celebrated their 25th anniversary as a band in 2006. The album "Makes Me Happy" came out in 2007. This consisted of new and remastered mixes of previous hits, and other more "unknown" songs from earlier albums.
2008 starts with the release of the almost instrumental album "Deja Vu". This edition also has a DVD with the first 1000 copies. The footage are pictures of the bands various concerts, fan meetings and other pictures connected to Azul Y Negro during the years.
