Those that like the bare stripped down tiny sound of minimal techno and others who haven't got a clue what it is - can hear a mix by Mister Minimal himself, Ricardo Villalobos, over on the Maryanne Hobbes sub-site of the Beep. Get listening to it before Friday as then it will disappear into the offline world of the BBC archives.
Hobbes gives it her usual sultry intro, emphasising the near mytical status of the mix, through a melange of tales coming from the various managers and promoters required to cattle prod Ricardo into doing this, his first ever radio mix. As ever she was very honoured and blown away by "just how deep" it was. Ah Maryanne..
If dubstep carries the echoes of the whole UK hardcore continuum, with the genes of rave passed on within it as Simon Reynolds would have it - then I have no idea what minimal techno is . Music with the bass sucked out of it and played back through a 1930's gramophone? His use of some version or other of 'Rose Rouge' by St.Germain mid way through is rather surprising. The photo of a sweat drenched Ricardo to the left was taken at Electric City sometime last year, where I for one had the pants bored off me.
Ah I know what you mean man, but thats the way of a lot of presenters. The difference with her is the lush accent she uses to host her show in. Fawning, deep breathed all over them. Its enough to drive a young man crazy. Shitmat did a pisstake of her on some releasePost a Comment
