The Buenos Aires producer will release El Reino Invisible in March.
Fresco has pursued minimalist ambient composition since the '90s, having previously worked with Kompakt on his 2002 Amor International EP. The Cologne label has kept its yearly Pop Ambient compilation series going since 2001, each year gathering tracks which mix experimental field recordings, new age and synth pop for what the label calls "elevator music for the vertically challenged." Kompakt says the annual exercise has led to a surplus of beatless material, resulting in the launch of a full-length Pop Ambient series.
Fresco, who has previously released albums on Fragil Discos and Cruz Del Sur, says the new set was composed while he was in an emotional place, but staves off the assumption that the songs emanated from sorrow, saying "I do not associate this album with feelings of sadness, but with hope, light and the summer heat, full of cyan and orange colors.“
Fresco recently pulled together a DJ mix for Womblabel. Check it out here to get a sense of his current palette.
