With works released on vital labels such as Ombra Int, Rotten City, Critical Monday, Playground, Esthétique, Roam, Aeon, among others, veteran producer Paco Jiménez aka Silicodisco lands on Espacio Cielo with a powerful EP. For the occasion, he decided to return to his Synthwave and Indie Dance origins delivering two well-crafted originals that offer an insightful journey through his collection of synths. For the remix duties, Slow Motion’s kingpin Franz Scala and Oberwave’s co-curator ETANE brought interesting interpretations.
Also known for his long and successful career as Paco Buggin, Silicodisco is the result of a cocktail of inspirations that range from Post-Nu Wave and Synthwave to Indie Dance and even EBM. The Madrid-based artist skilfully combines darkness with groove in his productions and the outcome is always a piece devoted to the dance floor.
The track we were solicited to review/premier, “Mind Loader”, is a true retro-futuristic journey in which Paco brings together mesmerising cosmic melodies provided by a Jean Michel Jarre’s theremin-like coat combined with trippy pads and stunning synth layers and leads. A must-have release for the Indie Dance/Dark Disco lovers out there.
You can find (and buy) this and other music pearls on the Beatport page of the label.
