In 2009 Luciano’s Cadenza imprint discovered Chilean electronic artist Felipe Venegas; instantly taken aback by his truly unique South American sound, Felipe was welcomed aboard the cutting edge label and soon after the ‘Llovizna’ EP alongside Francisco Allendes was released. The EP’s exorbitant success and it’s makers constantly evolving sound brings their relationship into late summer 2011 as Cadenza announce their sixty seventh cut; the ‘I Ching’ solo EP from Felipe Venegas. The two track EP triggers with “I Ching” and its spell binding intro of thundering gong crashes and jangling bells, betraying an almost story like theme as sporadic tom’s and intense brass melodies converse with one another intensely. Taking inspiration from heritage and experiences is a common thread amongst musicians and their art, but none more so than on “I Ching” as Felipe’s sound draws from the Mexican Teotihuacan Pyramids and his time there. Dramatic and far from your standard house track, “I Ching’s” mystical influence is rife with instrumental melodies cleverly transforming into looping vocals as sound pockets swell and retract throughout. As “I Ching’s” rhythm reveals itself with a creeping bass line and hazy kick, more surprises arrive and propel the track to new a new and contrasting identity. Delicate and groove ridden jazzy piano sections, rippling brass and the all important space between the beats are explored. A true journey through sound, Felipe Venegas’s “I Ching” pushes house music to extraordinary levels with its complex passage through sound. On the flip, “Orisha Chango” see’s Felipe utilize his skills to ignite the dance floor the as he delivers a powerful yet sensual Cuban influenced track. A bounding rubbery bass line and velvet spoken vocals roll as the God’s of the Yoruba Mythology are listed. As tightly sprung samples ricochet against each other, “Orisha Chango” reaches its high in the last two minutes, its production excellence throwing us around in rich texture
