The ever-surprising and adventurous Matias Aguayo takes another step into unknown territories with this new solo album. The most immediately striking aspect of Support Alien Invasion is the dual nature of the music: the tracks overflow with dance action via hypermodern grooves, while exuding an impression of quasi-abstract sonic architecture. The danceable dimension is stunningly original, as Matias has been striving to create heavy, sound system-friendly beats which incorporate non-Eurocentric, non-4/4 rhythm programming. The result often sounds like some kind of irresistible, futuristic Maloya or carnival music, which induces new ways of dancing. At the same time, when approached in a more intimate setting (headphones, living room, inner sanctum), the album turns out to provide a unique listening experience: one can easily get lost in it's buzzing soundscapes, huge spaces, clinking tones, and other sonic inventions which bring Support Alien Invasion strangely close to some elegant, conceptual electroacoustic piece of work. Forward-thinking, eclectic music lovers will be happy to learn that Crammed Discs and Cómeme (Matias and Avril Ceballos' internationalist electronic music imprint) have joined forces to release this album.
Born in Chile and raised in Germany, Matias Aguayo has been creating a varied body of genre-defying work since the early 00s, including several albums with Kompakt. A much in-demand DJ, he has become a reference for free-spirited dance music lovers from other corners of the world. The man who "helped popularize and expand minimal [techno]" (Pitchfork), he's gradually been using his voice as a key element, in his DJ sets and on certain albums.This is a new, unopened CD in its original packaging.
