This is the first full-length album for Pier Bucci on the Maruca label. Recorded during 2009 in Pier's new studio in Berlin, Amigo is not your average club record. This is the sound of friendly nature -- deeply-rooted in the music of Latin America, and at the same incorporating the latest recording technologies -- prime music for both extensive club use and advanced home-listening. A few minutes into its gentle, shimmering aura and it becomes clear that this is the most precise record by any Latino-techno artist. Submerged in warm, mid-tempo percussion arrangements, Pier's tracks leave a lot of room to breathe and let go of one's imagination, forming a soundtrack to virtually any activity an open mind can undertake. Amigo is also a vocal album, incorporating the talents of Armelle Pioline of Paris-based band Holden, Chilean vocalist Washingtone Miranda or Jorge Gonzales, one of Chilean pop music's finest exports. Amigo reads like a songbook from a completely new time and place, a songbook for a parallel universe where the very roots of music meet exotic sounds from the future. This is the music of feelings, glimpses of memories, half-forgotten songs played through radio static, warm and deeply humane. Channeling Latino folk through the experiments of ethnically-inclined artists of yesteryear, digitalizing ethnic rhythms in a far more sophisticated manner than any other producer, blending together individual feelings with digital machines, Amigo clearly is a new step in electronic music and a firm statement of a conscious, living, loving artist.
