Ricardo Villalobos, Salvador
2006 | Label: Frisbee Tracks / Believe Digital

Ricardo Villalobos 'Salvador collects seven of his early tracks produced between 1998 and 2001 for the label Frisbee Tracks. At the time, the future superstar DJ and former percussion student was living in Frankfurt and beginning to gig abroad; the album finds him navigating the space between no-nonsense Frankfurt techno, marked by machinic timbres and a hint of trance, and the syncopated rhythms he had studied in Cuba and Brazil. Nothing here is quite as… read more »

Excellent

This is some of Villalobos' earlier material, culled from early singles. It may not have the same vibe as his more recent releases, but it is excellent in its own right.

good, but maybe not your first villalobos album...

I know, it's completely snotty for somebody to say 'well this ones okaaayy, but you should really start with thiiis one..." but that's what I'm going to do. If you got turned on to Villalobos b/c of Alcachofa or The Au Harem du Archemedes or the outstanding Fitzheuer Zieheuer (none of which are available on eMusic!), this album will be a totally pleasant but non-mind-blowing listen. If you're totally new to the guy, go get one of the aforementioned albums, because each of those are...

Why Dance Music is Bigger than Ever

By Michelangelo Matos, Contributor

In 2010, the unthinkable occurred. I was 35, and I had never been so excited about electronic dance music. That's not usually how it works - dance music's turnover rate often leads to early burnout even among diehards, and particularly among diehards over 30. But throughout the past half-decade, dance music has been both cutting-edge and conscious of its own legacy; an irresistible combination for anyone who wants to have a good time first and… more »

They Say All Music Guide

After an onslaught of singles and full-lengths — culminating in the 40-minute epic Fizheuer Zieheuer in 2006 — it was only a matter of time before an audience would be scrambling for Ricardo Villalobos’ early works and paying premium prices on eBay. This compilation captures his finest moments from that first batch of minimal tracks from 1998 to 2001 originally issued on Frankfurt, Germany’s Frisbee Tracks imprint, as well as a Villalobos remix of Señor Coconut released on Multicolor Recordings in 2002. These tracks, while not far removed from the epic percussive jams that would become the hallmark of his full-length albums, are extremely straightforward in comparison. They’re dancefloor-friendly and at points even foreshadow the brilliance of his anthems “Easy Lee” and “Dexter” from his 2003 Alcachofa release for Playhouse. Having caught the attention of such DJs as Richie Hawtin and Dan Bell — who both became instant champions of Villalobos before starting their minimal love commune together in Berlin, the European techno capital of the decade — these tunes made Villalobos a staple of every minimal techno DJ set and spawned thousands of imitators. – Rob Theakston
