Blit is a well-known talented chilean producer who adds to the catalog of Modismo with a new proof of his versatility.
‘Repite’, track that opens the album, manages to outline the ground in which ‘Fauna Ficción’ moves, as a smoke screen we pass through to go all over a work where experimentation in electronic music is addressed with a ludic spirit.
This way, he is able to approach these compositions to a more restless instrumental pop, crossing over intricate keyboard sounds at dark low frecuencies that works as counterpoint. It is a careful production of the rhythmic patterns that sounds updated with contemporary urban rhythms and with a strong accent on hip-hop derivatives.
The centerpiece of this Blit’s new delivery are the three parts of ‘Exilio’, being the second one the moment in greater tune with the dancefloor. The album closes with ‘Morel’, a track that seems to recall Richard D. James’ legacy, though it ends up shaking the nostalgic off with a powerful rhythmic dose.
In less than 20 minutes ‘Fauna Ficción’ succeedes in introducing us into a world that catches us, captivating our ear with fresh sounds and keeping our feet in constant motion thanks to its playful beats. Seven tracks that only confirm Blit’s huge potential and the good times for the electronic music production that prevails in today’s Chile.
