Review: 11 months on from his first appearance on Lovefingers' impressive ESP Institute imprint, Juan Ramos returns with two more chunks of throbbing late night heat. Once again breaking up the rhythms for an altogether groovier experience, virtual A-side "ATKM" sees the producer joining the dots between bubbling techno, rolling proto-house and Young Marco style new age house. There's an extra-humid feel about the track that follows, "Globalizacion Acido", with Ramos gleefully joining the dots between bustling Afro-acid, trippy tropical house, unsettling alien funk and percussive tribal motions. It's utterly bonkers, but also rather stunning. The boy has clearly got talent.
Review: Lovefingers seems to be struggling a little with what to write on ESP Institute's distinct centre labels. For this Juan Ramos 12" - the producer's first for the New York based imprint - he's posed a question: "what colour Speedo should she wear this summer?" By the sounds of the fuzzy, broken beats, popping electronics, tribal percussion hits, drunken melodies and stretched out chords that mark out "Last Of The Natives", we'd suggest a rich shade of green. That said, if you also take the woozy, intense and cluttered - but nevertheless impressive - flipside "Enemy Of Enemy" is friend into consideration, dark brown might be a better option.
