With one of the longest tracks to reach our ears in recent history, Ricardo Villalobos shares ‘Bionic Sad’, a 45min sonic exploration through minimal Techno.
Throughout his storied career Villalobos has shared and released plenty of lengthy tracks. 10 minutes seems to be the norm for him, but he’s also been known to push it even further with tracks like ‘Minimoonstar (Full Session)’ which clocks in at over 30 minutes long, and ‘Fizheuer Zieheuer’ which will run for just over 37 minutes. That being said, pushing a track to 45 minutes is still quite remarkable in today’s industry.
‘Bionic Sad’ is classic Villalobos in the sense that it’s a minimal track featuring a distinct focus on his experimentation with rhythm, paired with a subtle atmospheric melody and distorted vocal sample. Some may say it’s boring, while others will call it brilliant. One thing is for sure, if he played the track all the way out during a set, the crowd might not be too happy about it, but it could also be a nice foundation for some DJ trickery and innovation.
Little is known about the track it this point, but you can listen to it in full below.
