With eclectic and psychedelic beats pureed in a satisfyingly smooth tech-house processor, it’s easy to get lost in the magic of ‘El Molito.’ From British Columbia all the way to Neukölln, Berlin, Colin de la Plante’s catalog of fired-up, oddball disco cuts have been ambushing unsuspecting audiences for the past two decades. Rather than completely shift groove gears with every new release, this prolific musician has made timelessly funky, left-of-centre electronic loops his winning trademark.
This set is a tribute to the film Re-animator. Like Herbert West, De la Plante tries to bring the dead back to life. With mixed results.

On rare occasions, The Mole has brought out his so-called “starchy root machine”: five turntables simultaneously playing hand-made loops that he manipulates in real-time. The result is a psychedelic blend of overlapping locked grooves
