An interest sparked from Argentina's famous "Energy Radio" as the new millennium began to appear over the horizon; Cristian Ramirez sought inspiration from the towering forces of Danny Tenaglia and Deep Dish. Fast-forward to 2015 and a sound that has matured since 2009's "Lost City" EP for Deepsessions Recordings is influenced by a triumvirate of luminaries that include Digweed, Sasha and fellow countryman Cattaneo.
A regular on the DJ circuits of his hometown, Cristian R has developed a steady stream of fans through his live work and appearances on Proton Radio via the popular "VS" show. As a music producer, Cristian has continued to reap significant rewards through his work for a host of Proton roster labels, not least in the recent collaborative work with Kasall and the "Flying" and "Eastern Sounds" EPs that provided success on Movement and Flow. Furthermore, the duo's "Outer Space" EP realised a notable career highlight with a release on Cattaneo's Sudbeat imprint.
Returning to label after a pair of tracks on the multi-faceted "Summer Particles 2014", we are delighted to welcome back Cristian R with his twin-track, rocket fuelled, "Spaceship".
Opener, "Bamboo Forest" is a densely textured affair and an apposite reflection of its title. Smooth layers of sustained pads drift through unhindered, building elegantly as they evolve to the mid point. A collection of scattered effects brings the forest floor to life as raindrops can be heard through subtle percussive riffs and endless reverberation.
The title track itself is an intelligent blend of strong beats and weighty rhythms as percussive interplay is a further strong component that helps anchor rich sub-bass frequencies within "Spaceship". Smooth arpeggiated riffs begin to emerge over time as the rhythm section becomes ever more complex and intricate. Spot effects saturated in reverb and delay adds further depth and intrigue to a piece that captures images of deep space and epic voyages.
Through his gleaming "Spaceship", Cristian R continues to see his career take off in roaring fashion.
