Before the second 10 Years Of Ricardo Villalobos party this weekend, the fabric office create this retrospective playlist of just some of the tracks they remember him playing during his decade long reign at the club.
Ricardo Villalobos is possibly the purest representation of the electronic art. Someone who’s become one of the most respected artists in the world thanks to his music and only his music. Marketing and social networking haven’t really been present in his life. He hasn’t needed them. He lives in Ibiza during the summer, driving a 25-year old Mercedes and still with his Cocoon residency. We talk to him about his recent album on Perlon and his view of life.
The Chilean producer (and recent Exchange interviewee) talks to Red Bull Music Academy Radio about his life and work over a mix of some of his most famous music.
Villalobos was born in the capital of Chile, Santiago, in the year 1970. However, at the age of three he moved to Germany with his family after General Augusto Pinochet overthrew the socialist government of Salvador Allende in 1973.
