Product Description

The productions of Chilean minimal maestro Ricardo Villalobos have always been a little more jazzy and funk-fueled than many will admit, though these elements – alongside the brilliance of his South American inspired drum programming – have come to the fore in recent times.

They’re certainly in evidence across the four fine tracks that make up Empirical House. Check, for example, the looped double bass, slack-tuned kicks and snares and woozy vibraphone flourishes of opener Widodo, or the undulating, almost tropical melody lines and glitchy, outer-space grooves of Bakasecc. Best of all is the title track, an unflinchingly trippy, woozy and borderline Balearic chunk of minimal house brilliance.
