Slap - one of the most obscure and forward thinking acts from the early 1980s meets the spearhead of today’s reduced electronic music, Ricardo Villalobos. The originals are disturbingly brilliant electronic excursions, while Villalobos’ jazz-fueled rework is one of the deepest mixes he has ever done. Vivid drums are built around a driving bassline, aiming the track right at the floor. Not to mention the rough claps! Imagine Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew” joined by Throbbing Gristle, playing minimal techno live. Slap’s experimentalism just seems to be the right inspiration for Ricardo Villalobos, who takes it to a level of weirdness only he can achieve while retaining such danceability.
