Asiko (In A Silent Mix)
Asiko (In A Silent Mix) (12" in die-cut sleeve) (1 per customer)
Cat: DKMNTL10YEARS10 1. Rel: 27 Mar 18
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Asiko (In A Silent Mix) (Ricardo Villalobos remix - part 1) (15:31)
  2. Asiko (In A Silent Mix) (Ricardo Villalobos remix - part 2) (13:42)
Review: Tony Allen's "Asiko", the leading tune on his 1999 LP Black Voices, has been a favourite of our regardless of impeding remixes, reworks, or reissues. It's still a pinnacle of the future jazz movement, blowing everything else out the water in the process. Rightfully, Holland's Dekmantel have decided to resurrect its timeless qualities and to give German-Chilean legend Ricardo Villalobos the tools to deliver some reinterpretations. Thanks to Honest Jon's Records, the two have already worked together, and Villalobos' ritualistic percussion has proven to work wonders next to Allen's legendary drumming and arrangmements. In short, it's as if they were made for each other - two ends of the spectrum that merge beautifully. The firs remix is moody, funky, and absolutely lit, banging out hypnotic drums over deep bass and glitch sonics, while the second part strips the beats out in favour of more wide-eyed melodics, infused with a futuristic style of jazz that is prone to opening minds. Warmly recommended.

Hubris Variation
Cat: BLACKTRUFFLE 024. Rel: 16 Nov 16
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Hubris Variation (part 1) (14:16)
  2. Hubris Variation (part 2) (13:12)
Review: Given that Ricardo Villalobos was one of a handful of guest producers who featured on Oren Ambarchi's recent Hubris album - a krautrock-influenced minimalist techno exploration that also boasted contributions from Jim O'Rourke and Mark Fell, amongst others - it seems fitting that he's been roped in to provide two new remixes. The Chilean's contribution to the album was largely rhythm-based, and his two lengthy Variations - each stretched across one side of wax - promote undulating, heads-down dancefloor hypnotism above all else. Naturally, his drum programming and use of subtle stylistic shifts is as on-point as ever, with Ambarchi's original textures being manipulated into mind-altering new shapes.

Down
Down (12")
Cat: PERLON 125. Rel: 26 Jun 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Vormlock (12:03)
  2. Down (16:02)
Review: Disordered Rhythm Metronomy may be a puzzling (and, let's face it, rather strange) artistic alias, but the two men behind the project, Ricardo Villalobos and Edward, have produced some of the most distinctive leftfield techno of the last decade. As a result, you'd expect their first joint EP to be a killer... and it is. A-side "Vormlock" is a rubbery, off-kilter treat, with the experienced duo peppering an elastic synth bassline and sparse, skittish drums with glitchy stabs, tipsy lead lines and all manner of wonky, out-of-this-world noises. Over on the flipside you'll find title track "Down", a deeper and dreamier chunk of spacey minimalism in which typical Villalobos style percussion and softly squelching bass comes cloaked in some suitably intergalactic synthesizer chords.

Kime Ne: Versions 1+2
Kime Ne: Versions 1+2 (12" + 1-sided etched vinyl 12" + insert)
Cat: HJP 076. Rel: 11 Mar 15
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Kime Ne (23:54)
  2. Kime Ne (Ricardo Villalobos version 1) (16:34)
  3. Kime Ne (Ricardo Villalobos version 2) (16:04)
Review: Using the Turkish psychedelic project Insanlar as a jump off point, Honest Jon's have enlisted Ricardo Villalobos to turn out one of his grandiose remix projects that gels so naturally with more exotic sound sources. The original of "Kime Ne" is already an enchanting, Moog-infused groover rich with traditional vocals, and then Mr Villalobos locks the ingredients in for a typically cosmic ride into stripped and hypnotic house territory, letting the lutes intertwine with dusty reams of percussion using that alchemists touch that could only come the man himself. The remix spreads itself over two sides of wax, leaving one side of the double pack free for a fetching etching as well.

Neunachi EP
Cat: RWX 013. Rel: 16 Nov 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Neunachi (13:10)
  2. Detrant (12:54)
Review: By now, we should know what to expect from Chilean minimalist Ricardo Villalobos, namely eccentric, off-kilter rhythms subtly influenced by his south American heritage, smooth but impactful bass, a smattering of weird electronic noises and mangled vocal samples pulled from the depths of an imagined K-hole. You get that in spades on 'Neunachi', the 13-minute lead cut from his latest Rawax double-header. It's classic Villalobos with a nightmarish twist - all backwards vocal samples, brain-melting rhythmic elements and subtle shifts of sonic emphasis. Flipside 'Detrant' is no less odd, though the skittish machine beats underpinning the collage of South American samples and wayward noises is pretty sturdy and straightforward. Of course, the track itself is anything but straightforward, but that's always been a big part of Villalobos's early morning allure.

Neunachi EP
Neunachi EP (limited gold vinyl 12")
Cat: RWX 013G. Rel: 16 Nov 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Neunachi (13:14)
  2. Detrant (12:55)
Review: Following the skittering, syncopated arrangements and left-handed excursions of 'Aslohop' and 'Detrant' back in September, Ricardo returns to Rawax with two more broken rhythms. 'Neunachi' is a classic Villalobos wonky shuffer with off-grid kicks and a rainbow of wet, cavernous noises. Take away the demonic reverse vocals and you're in microhouse territory. 'Detrant' is a much more driven affair, up-tempo and thicker, electro kicks off-set by a far-away chant. Each cut going the full nine yards; if ever we've had time to truly lock in to Ricardo's famously enduring grooves, it's right now. Neun out of ten.

Aslohop EP
Aslohop EP (limited brown marbled vinyl 12")
Cat: RWX 012B. Rel: 21 Sep 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Aslohop (12:28)
  2. Detrand (21:00)
Review: Earlier in the year, Chilean minimal maestro Ricardo Villalobos reached an agreement with Rawax for the long-established label to release a series of singles and, more remarkably, a digital-only, hour-long track called 'Matsu'. This brown, marbled vinyl 12" is the first in the sequence of singles to hit stores and contains two typically lengthy workouts. Lead cut 'Aslohop' leads the way, with Villalobos once again delivering entrancing action built around oddly programmed, distinctively swung South American drum hits, curious noises and a hypnotic, undulating bassline. Flipside 'Detrand' is an even more spaced-out and druggy affair, with various barely audible samples subtly rising and falling for 21 minutes atop another deliciously out-there rhythm track.

Mandela Move EP
Mandela Move EP (double 12")
Cat: DESET 02. Rel: 27 Feb 19
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Mandela Move (12:56)
  2. Fontec (13:04)
  3. Ectroscop (13:24)
  4. Beetglass (13:04)
Review: Fresh from remixing Afrobeat legend Tony Allen for Dekmantel, Ricardo Villalobos presents his first solo outing of 2019 - an epic double-pack containing four lengthy workouts in his signature off-kilter, minimalist techno style. First up is title track "Mandela Move", where chanted South African vocals weave their way in and out of hypnotic, funk-fuelled, glitch-driven drums that rank amongst Villalobos' boldest beats for some time. "Fontec" is deeper and subtly more melodious, with plenty of weirdo noises and some seriously chunky bass, while "Ectroscop" sees our Chilean hero brilliantly blend the swinging funk of breakbeat with his mind-altering percussion and production. Finally, "Beetglass" is as crunchy, bass-heavy and percussive as anything Villalobos has done to date.

Dependent & Happy Part 1
Cat: PERLON 92-1. Rel: 22 Aug 12
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Tu Actitud
  2. Timemorf
  3. Grumax
  4. I'm Counting
  5. Das Leben Ist So Anders Ohne Dich
  6. Mochnochich
Review: Ricardo Villalobos's third full-length (unless you count his Fabric mix and Re: ECM project with Max Loderbauer) entitled Dependent & Happy had been eagerly anticipated since its announcement early this year, and on its vinyl release finds its 14 tracks split up across 5x12" singles. The results are as sublime as you would expect from the master of minimal; "Tu Actitud" opens with its half-spoken vocals and jaunty electric bass, "Timemorf" continues with its minimal Chilean rhythms, while "Grumax" is the undisputed highlight - a combination of tense, sprung bass and discordant strings arranged in the way only Villalobos can.

Changes EP Part 2
Changes EP Part 2 (12") (1 per customer)
Cat: TOS 008. Rel: 01 May 20
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Changed (10:40)
  2. Periodico (12:00)
Review: We were hugely impressed by the first part of Ricardo Villalobos and Daniel Maher's collaborative EP series, which naturally saw them play to their strengths while offering up distinctive tracks that stood out from the crowd. Predictably they're at it again on EP number two. A-side "Changed" is particularly potent, with the pair peppering a typically wonky and minimalist but also pleasingly percussive group with trippy, effects-laden spoken word snippets and echoing, spaced-out dub techno style melodic motifs. Flipside "Periodico" is a slightly more forthright affair built around a sturdier, immaculately layered percussive groove, a deliciously simple one-note stab, drowsy chords and the duo's usual K-hole-friendly vocal samples.

Review: As time passes, the increasingly prolific partnership of Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer moves farther into the wilderness, both artists emboldened by their shared sense of adventure and peerless skill. Here, on this LP for Mana, they're shrugging off all shackles in an exploration of synthesis on a molecular level. What's so thrilling is that patterns and rhythms do emerge from within this primordial soup, winding up in some of the most gorgeous and beguiling works we've tripped on for some time. Otherworldly, but somehow grounded with an earthly instinctive-ness, "The Clouds Know" will take time to wrap your head around, but therein lies the beauty.
