Originally released in 2005. The Mutek organization has played an instrumental role in exposing the undermined and vastly talented collective of South American electronic producers to the world at large. This release is from Chilean acolytes Pier Bucci and Daniel Nieto, aka Skipsapiens. As a solo artist, Pier Bucci has become somewhat of an elder statesman on the Chilean electronics circuit. He began his producing career seven years ago with a track on the Austral compilation on Chilean label Ruta 5, and has gone on to release work on the Background, WMF, and Peacefrog labels, to name a few. He is also a member of the Chilean outfit Mambotur. Daniel Nieto (aka Danieto) has been experimenting with bits and beats since the late '90s, and his debut employs dubby rhythms, high tech constructions, heavy bass, IDM melodies, bleeps, piano and warm electronic textures all wrapped in a very personal style. Eco is an album that showcases the growth and development of what both producers are capable of doing, given the right time and the proper audiences. Chilean electronic music has learned lessons from Berlin, but what it knows it filters through the heat, passion, and fatalism of South American history. If you're a fan of Ricardo Villalobos or Atom Heart, then Skipsapiens belong in your record collection.
