ricardo donoso - Assimilating the Shadow

**Killer album of arpeggiated and refracted synth music somewhere between Emeralds, Jean Michel Jarre, Cluster and Manuel Göttsching. Limited edition Deluxe 2LP gatefold limited to 500, mastered by James Plotkin, cut at D&M** Ricardo Donoso made a very fine impression last year with his debut album of sunrise rave moments, 'Progress Chance' . The label have nabbed his sterling follow-up, 'Assimilating The Shadow', another beautiful suite of tingling arpeggios and rippling rhythmic tactility recalling memories of Goan beach parties and Amazonian raves you never visited. While Ricardo's more recent Perispirit movement with Luke Moldof is more an academic concern, here he finds a finer balance between complex compositional strategies, sacred geometry and trance-like gratification. And that darkly blissful ambiguity is key, reviving a viral sensibility that was once the currency of classic electronica, but has now been largely appropriated and intensified to jaw-breaking degrees by dance substrains like psytrance and progressive house. The labyrinthine elaborations of 'Assimilating The Shadow' sidestep the pitfalls of convention and orthodoxy, instead joining the dots back and forth between Jean Michel Jarre and Speedy J, or Manuel Göttsching and Lorenzo Senni to create a stellar sound for spangled ears.
