Hails from the seaside town of Viña del Mar, Chile, Ricardo began to make waves across the world with his brand of intensely melodic electronic music. His ﬁrst vinyl calling card released into the world was his James Holden’s supported debut 12 'El Sunset' on Border Community in 2007. The haunting, spine-tingling 'El Sunset' came backed with the equally striking 'Made' and the cascading melodies of 'Tickets', a neat snapshot of Ricardo's musical diversity.
After that, a series of acclaimed Eps followed: Boy Love Girl EP (Border Community 2008), With You andMi Pieza Está Llena De Cosa (Traum Schallplatten 2009). Touring the world for the following years ended up with a full residency in Paris where the complete French connection arrived in 2012 with the release on French label In Paradisum of the highly addictive single Esoteric/Carnaval.
Ricardo's own inﬂuences join the dots between trance and UK shoegaze, jazz and punk, new age and noise. Identifying a common atmospheric feel in the seemingly disparate genres and combining this with his own overriding love of melody has given birth to Ricardo's own sound: sometimes warm and fuzzy, sometimes devastating on the danceﬂoor, and always intensely musical.
Treillis, his 1st album, came in 2013 on established French label Desire (Ike Yard, Monotone, etc). With a great reception, Resident Advisor gave it a 4/5, two selected singles from the album emerged: If I Love You and Hundreds/Garden. The full trilogy was completed with remixes and support from Daniel Avery, Bass Clef, D’Marc Cantu, Samuel Kerridge, and Low Jack.
His second album came out in 2015 on Cocoon Recordings after Sven Väth’s direct call to collaborate with him. Simple titled as «Collection» it compiled unreleased songs from 2009 to 2014. Not compromising his own style, it won him a «masterpiece» by Les Inrocks and gained him features on Dj Mag, Tsugi, The Ransom Note, DummyMag, XLR8R, RA, and Groove.
Leaving the live set behind, he started the djing tour that took him all over Europe and secured him the next singles on Correspondent (Red Sea 2017), ESP Intitute (Liturgia 2017), and MUSAR (La Condamine 2017). Adopting them as his new family the third album release came behind the name Continuidad (ESP Institute 2019) and it changed the sound of the common sound palette of his previous work and a raw, freeform kind of music was shown. Of course, the danceﬂoor wasn’t neglected and two dance singles were taken from it: Birds and Recife putting him in dj bags as disparate as Fort Romeau, Barnt, Powder, and Adriatique. To ﬁnish oﬀ 2019, Ricardo also released Nadivi with a gritty Legowelt remix, and in the year later he released After The Movie (including a massive Plaid remix), both on MUSAR.
