Rodriguez Jr - Orinoco EP

For fans of Rodriguez Jr.’s Orinoco/Omicron EP, the wait is finally over. After weeks of hype and massive support from some of the biggest names in the industry, including Seth Troxler’s inclusion of Orinoco (Claude Monnet Mix) on his blistering Radio 1 Essential Mix on May 7th, the six-part EP is finally available exclusively on www.beatport.com through Claude Monnet’s inspirational Back 2 Fundamentals imprint. If you want to know more about one of our favorite French producer, you can read the interview I had with him here : Rodriguez Jr. interview.

TRACKLISTING – RODRIGUEZ JR. – ORINICO EP [Buy the EP]

Claude Monnet’s groundbreaking ‘Back to Fundamentals’ visionary project, gets off in true style as flamboyant French house maestro ‘Rodriguez Jr.’, gets the prestigious call-up to deliver the very first sonic installment. There is definitely a Tom Pooks spirit in here ! “Orinoco/Omicron” and its carefully thought-out remix package, scheduled for release on Claude’s very own B2F label sets the tone for the whole endeavor, and will proudly feature on the final compilation “Back to Fundamentals: Act 2 – The Nouvelle Vague” in February next year.

Quite a task one may think, but it seems perfectly clear Rodriguez Jr. is treating the project with the respect that it deserves as he steps up to the plate and delivers what can only be described as a first rate slice of groove fueled Tech Funk. Deep, and moody, yet staying true to a certain playfulness throughout, the whole release explores the diversity and experimentalism that has presented itself so masterfully throughout the last two decades of French underground music – a scene for which Claude Monnet himself has become such a valuable patron and benefactor.

With “Orinoco” Rodriguez Jr. manages to produce a truly luscious amalgamation of subtle, understated, retro sounds, samples and beats – nothing short of an indulgence for the ear. Special big up for the remix of Kolombo. “Omicron” on the other hand explores a more progressive, melodic and technical path, with futuristic influences and a pinpointed innovative and inventive flare. The diversity of each contributes to an undeniably worthy first edition to Claude Monnet’s Back to Fundamentals brainchild. If things carry on in the same vein, we are in for one hell of a final piece early in 2012, so stay tuned because there’s much more where this came from on its way…

For sure, full support from Actualites Electroniques! Rodriguez Jr. shows us once again all his talent, and he is now for sure the best French producer of the moment. That’s all folks !
