Product Description

Product Description

2007 release, part of the ongoing fabulous Fabric mix series. Chilean microhouse producer Ricardo Villalobos took his entry in the Fabric mix series in a slightly different direction than most. Instead of compiling his favorite Electronic tracks and shouting himself out a time or two, Ricardo's Fabric 36 mix features one common thread: all the tunes are brand new Villalobos compositions (including several with collaborators).

4.0 out of 5 stars Headphone Commute Review March 30 2008
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The label created by the London's club Fabric, and known for their mix CDs, featuring sounds from some staple names like Carl Craig, Adam Beyer, and even John Digweed, brings you its 36th installment of minimal tech house by Ricardo Villalobos. Born in Santiago, Chile, Villalobos moved to Germany at the age of three. At the age of 24 (1994) he released his first EP on Playhouse, followed by a debut LP almost 9 years later, titled Alcachofa, on the same label. Since then, Villalobos has been enjoying a stream of consistent quality minimal, micro, and tech house releases. Villalobos' three other aliases are Bispeed Black, Richard Wolfsdorf, and Termiten; his most notable collaborations include Social Being with Justin McNulty, and Ric Y Martin with Santiago born Martin Schopf (aka Dandy Jack). Fabric 36 is a continuous mix, compiled of mostly Villalobos' tracks and mixed by himself - it thus can be treated as an album. The rhythms are simple, light and groovy, and I loose myself in the hypnotic sound over and over, as the tracks effortlessly blend into one another, and ride on. This may come off counter-intuitive for some critics of techno, but I often use such minimal sound as a tool: to relax, clear my mind, and on occasion even cure a headache. Recommended if you like Matthew Dear (False), Dominik Eulberg, Marc Houle and Gabriel Ananda.

2.0 out of 5 stars Another Miss in the Minimal World Feb. 12 2008
By CloudMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Fabric series is disputeably the leader in pumping out minimalist albums. Fabric 36 is yet another with Ricardo Villalobos contributing to this oversaturated genre. All tracks are produced by himself which gives the set its intential feel of one long unmixed track. For my tastes, unimpressive and dull after a few listens.
Another Fabric album to put in the "don't like" pile. I hope this minimalist movement takes a turn for the better with a little more creativitiy. The last 2 years has seen far too many crappy albums. Fabric 36 included.
2/5 stars.
2.0 out of 5 stars A self-indulgent mess Oct. 22 2012
By justin PL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This mix is when Ricardo was going off in a lot of different directions and struggling against the fact that minimal was starting to get stale. It was around the time he was making his 30 minute tracks. You can hear him dabbling with a lot of different experimental sounds, but unfortunately that's what this mix sounds like: a not particularly successful experiment. The Kabuki track in the middle absolutely kills the groove and makes me skip forward every time. You can make an argument that it is interesting listening music, but that's not what I purchase Fabric mix CDs for--I want to hear the latest dance floor sounds and a groove. It's a shame because parts of the mix do show what he is capable of, particularly towards the end with "Won't you tell me" going into the Latin American track which would have had quite a triumphant effect, were it not for the mess of a mix that preceded it.

Ricardo is one of the few DJs and producers that truly earned a right to make a Fabric mix of all his own work. He has a special relationship with the club and is probably the single biggest driving influence on what used to be branded as "minimal" house and techno that influenced club music for over a decade. It's just a shame that what could have been a lasting and compelling artist statement from this seminal DJ instead resulted in a deflating, forgettable mess.
4.0 out of 5 stars This cd is pretty sick. Dec 28 2010

This is a wonderful mix from Villalobos. I am a huge fan. There is one track on it (#9 Andruic & Japan) that is very weird though. It gets annoying because of how upfront it is. It's just very loud and can almost make you feel uncomfortable. You'd just have to sample it. We usually just skip that track. But still one track out of 14 other amazing ones is still worth it to me. I love the other tracks, they are so groove worthy. I definitely recommend this CD to Villalobos fans. When listening to minimal or him you know what to expect with some surprises as well. This is a Win.

This set is pretty amazing, during the begining it is mostly minimal with some tech house but around tracks 9 and on it turns housey and slower jam, but it is great i love it, its beatuiful, so if you into minimal and house, this is a great purchase, the beginning of this set is very different toward the end.
