Vinyl and Digital Reviews: Dorian Concept, Jargon V.A, and Ricardo Villalobos

I'll soon be back on regular posting duties, but as I know you'll all be looking for hot new music - overcome by an urge for relentless beats and spine-tingling melodies - have a mull over the latest releases from April onwards in the upcoming posts. All reviews were submitted to Clash Magazine.


Dorian Concept - Her Tears Taste Like Pears (Ninja Tune)
…futuristic dancehall-electronica

Fans of Modeselektor’s ‘Hello Mom!’ and Warp electronica will find deep satisfaction with Dorian Concept. Futuristic dancehall infuses the backbone of these tracks, with splashes of funk and progressive that engage you in uplifting dalliances. ‘Toegames Made Her Giggle’ and the title track spark most listening delight.

Release date: 28th March 2011

Jargon V.A Ft Tinie Tempah - Disappoint You (Cheese On Bread)
…Charts and dancefloor destined

Borrowing the guitar and vocals of Kaiser Chief’s hit, ‘Love’s Not a Competition...’, Jargon V.A infuses with electro, grime and the lyrical flows of Tinie Tempah. It’s destined for the charts, while High Rankin’s remix with thunderous stabs of dubstep takes it to the dancefloor.

Release date: April 2011

Ricardo Villalobos, Los Updates and Anthony Collins - Joli Chat EP (Nice Cat Records)
… dissociative dance

Hook lovers will find themselves clinging to the murky vocal repetitions of this trippy and disassociative electronica like an adrift raft, a fitting theme for the slow, overwhelming and warped traversal of ‘I Throw Water Into the Lake’ and DJ tool-esque ‘I Miss You So Much’.

Release date: 3rd April 2011

Available to buy
