4.0 out of 5 stars glitch from Latin-America 30 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Skipsapiens are Daniel Nieto and Daniel Bucci, an electronica duo who hailing from Chile, Latin America. On Eco they've produced an album that should appeal to anyone interested in standard 'clicks and bleeps' electronica.

While there's nothing wildly original here, this album is intelligently crafted and contains some gorgeous melodies: 'Rastafari Droids' is a standout: beginning with a bright xylophone melody, the detailed beats soon gather intensity, chirruping and burping around it. 'Dilatacion Neuronal' has a folksy organ that is the perfect canvas for the duo's beats to squelch over.

The later half of the album sees the focus become more ambient. The closing tracks clock in over six minutes and feature long, drawn-out synth patterns. 'Compresion Infinitesimal', meanwhile, has a fuzzed-out bass and eerie, eastern style plucked strings sounding ominously in the background. 'Microbios de Silicio' yanks up the bpm briefly before falling back into a soporific, spaced out groove.

Despite the location, the album has no real references to traditional Latin-American music, which probably counts as a good thing. That said, the duo do (perhaps inadvertantly) call to mind summer days and the archetypalm dusty setting - 'Doctor Silla' has a filtered synth that has plenty of warmth and mediterranean sunshine running through it. This could be slapped onto an adventurous chillout, maybe.

So this is music for solitary listening, mostly contemplative but with a fair amount of explosive moments packed in as well. If you like stuff like Autechre, this is something with steadier time sigs but a similar obssession with detail. The heavily granulated synths add something different and give this an enveloping deepness.
