Boomkat Product Review:
Oren Ambarchi gets the very best out of Ricardo Villalobos by tasking the veteran Chilean rhythmatician with emphasising the rhythmic backbone he produced for Ambarchi’s Hubris album.
In one of those every-few-year spikes of genius we see from Ricky V, he goes microscopic on the levels of insectoid, Afro-latin groove mechanics, tweaking ever bar into an organic twist and resolution of the last in an achingly tight yet loose, micro-to-macro masterstroke that sounds something like Beatrice Dillon reworking This Heat. Or, then again, it just sounds like Ricardo Villalobos through and through.
We’d love to hear a DJ play this in full, but we’ll probably have to make do with shuffling around to it while making dinner. Highly recommended either way.
