Ricardo Villalobos and Umho collaborate on new EP, Melo De Melo
Ricardo Villalobos and Umho will put out a two-track EP called Melo De Melo on December 6th.
Melo De Melo focuses on Chiles dance music legacy. The label, Drumma Records, is run by Felipe Venegas out of Santiago. For its 15th release, Drumma pairs the countrys leading export, Villalobos, with one of Santiagos most beloved DJs, Umho. (The duo have played together in the past.)
These two tracks were produced last winter in Berlin, and the label says their syncopation and melodies display "fundamental traits of the Latin American continents culture." The longtime friends both had a hand in the first cut, "Por Suerte," while the title track is credited solely to Villalobos.
The collaborative record rounds off a busy production year for Villalobos. Hes issued EPs on Melisma Records and Raum...musik, and remixed Prins Thomas, D.F.X. and Oren Ambarchi. Villalobos also contributed to the Ambarchis latest album, Hubris, which is out next month.
