Following his well-received Animals EP with Paola Poletto on Desolat in the summer 2012, Loco Dice's imprint is pleased to welcome back Francisco for a solo EP that sees him continue his fine production form.
Kicking off with "The Magician" Francisco takes the listener all slightly different journey with a more experimental sound. The track's vocal sample conjures up an almost warped reality and offsets the deep emotive music that accompanies it.
"Superwave Theory" is a more aggressive track, tinged with futuristic sounds that are underpinned with a chugging rhythm and a ghostly vocal loop, this has been a favourite for Loco Dice for a while.
The shimmering "Proyecto Gaia" is a finely crafted track that works in a playful groove to the release. Its hypnotic nature makes for easy but explorative listening.
"El Regreso de los Abuelos" is a more delicate and intricate affair and serves as a beautiful complement to the tracks that are wrapped around it. Lush ethereal sounds provide a sonic extradition for the listener.
The Chilean producer picks the tempo back up with "Ascension 101" that features a warm all-encompassing bass that is punctuated by spatterings of harmonious progressions. A polished production that will be used to build the atmosphere in many a club.
Finally "Amigos del Planeta 12" is a jumpy punchy track with a swinging tempo that oozes an after-hours ethos.
Francisco is tipped for big things, and through this demonstration of his own rich musical palette and a well-crafted studio excellence, one can see why.
