It’s with great honour that In Paradisum welcome sometime Border Community and Traum Schallplatten artist Ricardo Tobar into the label for the fourth chapter in our fledgling story. The Esoteric/Carnaval EP reveals four tracks that further showcase the Chilean producer’s unerring grasp for electronic music that combines moments of introspection with the unshakeable urge to lose yourself in the moment.
Tobar is extending this plunge towards all new uncompromising techno territory from various, equally engrossing angles. Pitch the rough hewn mutant beat dance of “Esoteric” next to fizzing, acid tainted textures of “Recuerdos” or the grinding journey through Dante’s Inferno that is “Carnaval” and it’s easy to see why Tobar has been accommodated into the In Paradisum fold.
On remix duties, Qoso turns « Recuerdos » into a loopy techno jam designed for those moments when you want to take your set a step further, crazier, messier, while Mondkopf’s will work like the blissful light at the end of a techno tunnel, as you suddenly look up to the roof to realize it’s no longer there and you’re seeing the stars.
