Ricardo Villalobos’ debut album

After 20 years, the electronic music community is buzzing with anticipation as ‘Alcachofa’ is set to make a triumphant return. This groundbreaking album, which was originally released on Playhouse, has been expanded to four vinyl records, a departure from the original three. What’s even more thrilling is the addition of three previously unreleased tracks: ‘Bach To Back,’ ‘Y.G.H.,’ and ‘Waiworinao.’ While ‘Y.G.H.’ and ‘Waiworinao’ graced the CD version of the album, they are now available in their full vinyl glory.

For those unfamiliar with Alcachofa, it’s a true masterpiece in the realm of minimal electronic music. The album features Villalobos classics like ‘Dexter’, ‘Quizás’ and ‘Easy Lee,’ which have left an indelible mark on the electronic music landscape.

This reissue is not the first time ‘Alcachofa’ has been in the spotlight. Playhouse reissued it in 2011, and in 2015, Villalobos himself reissued ‘Easy Lee’ and ‘Dexter’ on his Sei Es Drum label, further cementing their timeless appeal.
