THE BLOG

hi there,

if you're reading this, thank you for stopping by. i'm writing here to try to keep this blog alive. it's so difficult to keep up with all the social media now that it's impossible for me to concentrate on facebook, twitter, instagram or here at 100%.

i suppose it's the new thing: complain about the internet noise, the little light there, things bleeping a blopping, cars passing, distractions. or i'm just getting old? i remember the good times of blogs though: i used to make one post and people from around the world discussed, here, in this little space, about things, music of course, but they were serious, insightful. they were all very nice too. that was ten years ago probably. time passes so fast, isn't it? and now we all have to deliver a good picture, a juicy JPEG square, a nice gossip, a stupid thought of 140 characters just to make some piece of... art? sell, if it sells.

i would like to keep going and not to close this, the blog i mean, even if it's too retro. i listen to vinyl, so what's the difference? if i get the chance i will keep it updated because i still think it's a valuable thing, where to express feelings and thoughts and works and all. if you want other stuff, gigs and pictures and videos it's probably better to go to my instagram account, even if i have 200 followers there :)! facebook is getting behind and from now on i will only put the essential things there (as with twitter).

in other news, my last release from last year was on the magical ESP Institute. i'm very happy to collaborate with andrew and his whole crew, please check it out and, i think there's still stock on some shops.

all the love,

ricardo

yo!

it has been a long time i don't write here. i was working, kind of, on new music.

after the album in cocoon last year i had to gig a bit and then i went out of ideas for new stuff. it took me some time to adjust and find where to go next... i'm still searching at it to be honest but, in the meantime, i have a few singles already scheduled, which is nice. i will talk about them when everything is clearer but i'm experimenting again with dance music so i hope the new tunes can make you dance.

in the search, i'm working also in a new album. don't expect it soon but it's definitely more dark and noise oriented. like a long weird mantra, if that makes sense, we will see what happens with that.

a few weeks ago i opened an account at bandcamp where you can find some vinyl i have and i can send you if you're interested. you can buy some mp3's too.

before i forget, there was some nice vinyl out in cocoon with remixes of my last album, if you didn't see them, take a look at it here:
