Niño Árbol’s “Bilocación” Runs Like a Four-Course Techno Dinner

Bilocación” is the first taste from the upcoming Niño Árbol EP Distancia, and it runs like a weird four-course techno dinner. The intro is scarce and haunting and has no discernible rhythm until the hi-hat comes in. Then, things get dark, like you’re swimming in a swamp, with a gnarly bass growl that takes over the frequency spectrum. Shortly after, he releases us into space, making us float with only minimal airy synth chords and a little percussion that sounds like drops of water. Finally, the techno party promised in the intro kicks in, and it’s just as deep and a little nasty. On “Bilocación,” Niño Árbol succeeds in making his music a cinematic journey.
