slap - one of the most obscure and forward thinking acts from the early 80s meets the spearhead of today’s electronic music, ricardo villalobos. the originals are disturbingly brilliant electronic excursions, while villalobos’ jazz-fueled rework is one of the deepest mixes he has ever done. vivid drums are built around a driving bassline, aiming the track right at the floor. not to mention the rough claps! imagine miles davis’ “bitches brew” joined by throbbing gristle, playing “minimal techno” live. earlier this year macro unearthed namlook’s long lost “subharmonic atoms” featuring outstanding pépé bradock remixes. this continuation of the “prototypes” series is none less of a dream team. slap’s experimentalism just seems to be the right inspiration for ricardo villalobos, who takes it to a level of weirdness only he can achieve while retaining such danceability. essential!
