Dino Felipe Xanaconversex
- Words: Susanna Bolle
- Label: Schematic
Early on, Miami's Schematic seemed to take its aesthetic and musical cues from Warp, from its Designer's Republic album covers to Richard Devine's dense, Autechre-esque beats. However, the most recent addition to the Schematic stable, Dino Felipe, draws inspiration from rather different sources, looking more to Cologne than Sheffield for musical inspiration. Indeed, on the EP Xanaconversex, Felipe's first release since his promising debut As Flim Toby, the standout tracks-"Slutt Petal (2 crunch)" and "Butterfri"-mix babbling, musique concrete-ish textures with eccentric, skittering beats in a manner that recalls the gurgling, quirky funk of Sonig stalwarts like Mouse on Mars rather than the brutally angular grooves normally associated with Schematic. Outstanding.
