Electronics know no borders, so it should be no surprise that Ruben Tamayo calls Mexicali, Mexico home. Tamayo assembles engaging, mostly minimal techno, with rolling dub basslines weaving in and out of the programmer’s dithering, clicking rhythms. For FAX Collaborations and Remixes, Tamayo calls on allies from across the globe. Vocal tracks with Alex Ayuli and Pepito comprise a modern glitch-ified take on synth pop, while Jonas Bering and Tamayo create hypnotic cross-continental microdisco that sonar pings its way across the Atlantic. There are a few boring collaborations here (Murcof’s post-Pole dub drags), but otherwise this is a testament to the good kind of globalism.
