Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer Unveil New Vilod Album
'The Clouds Know' LP is out now on Mana.
The Clouds Know follows the duo’s Safe In Harbour album, released on Perlon, and is their debut on Mana. Once again, it sees Villalobos and Loderbauer exploring abstract electronic music and free jazz. Across 11 tracks, they pull away the backbone inherent to the structure of dance music, refining a deft and subtle musical noir built on ambient cues, sparks and claps of electricity, brushed drums, black voids, and subterranean bass swoops.
“There’s a twinkle in the eye and moments of deadpan levity, but the overall mood here is sober and introspective,” the label explains. “Emotions run deep.”
Mana is a record label established in 2017 by Andrea Zarza, curator at the British Library Sound Archive, and Matthew Kent.
