Ricardo Tobar takes the listener to electronic music's outer limits on his latest artist album. Like the aesthetic of that other great producer of Chilean origin, Ricardo Villablobos, Continuidad is a sprawling, vivid affair. It moves from the gritty guitar sounds of "Les Vagues" and "Totem" into the jangling percussive rhythm of "Recife", before edging back into abstraction with dirge-like arrangements such as "Purple Sun, Rising" and "Vestigios". Tobar even touches on psychedelic textures on tracks like "First" - whose detuned guitars and tripped out nuances sound like early Pink Floyd getting it on with Spacemen 3 - but eventually makes his way back to the dance floor with the expansive groove of "Birds". Continuidad is a journey in the truest, most cosmic sense.
