Chilean producer, Jimmy Pizarro (Insecto) presents his first UK full length release for Home Assembly Music. In many ways a more musical re-imagining of the Classic Clicks & Cuts sound most readily associated with Mille Plateaux, but adapted for a 2014 audience. Rather than sticking to the austere aesthetic of the likes of SND (a professed influence), Pizarro has expanded the sound palette of his lush, expansive arrangements. So now, as well as the intricate, skittering micro beats, we have jazzy chords, glistening ambient pads and a smattering of spoken vocal snippets thrown into the mix, creating a tuneful machine funk which at times recalls Mount Kimbie's earlier works. But it's ruder than that, as the crystalline synths, swirling samples and fizzing hi-hats are all anchored down by some seriously deep sub-bass pulses.
A big recommendation for fans of anything from SND, through Aphex Twin, to Mount Kimbie. Jimmy Pizarro (Insecto) has been working for some time in the field of digital arts in his native Chile, where he is Director of the Chile Advanced Music Festival. Mainly composing and producing experimental and modern electronic music, his works have been published around the globe on labels such as Pueblo Nuevo (CL), Impar (CL), Filtro (MX), and Mobeer (UK). "Post Edit de un Cromosoma" is his first full length release in the UK.
