SA Night Vision (extended)
Not often that I listen to tracks that are over 20 mins. This an exception. Villalobos weaves in and out of a chilean folk song sample (anyone?) making it sound like a football crowd dumped in the middle of a Spanish minimal party at 5am. That's a pretty bad description to what is an ever evolving, intricate, astoundingly deep track. Here's the rare 20 min version.
Ricardo Villalobos-1º Encuentro Latinoamericano de la Soledad (mediafire)
EDIT - Alex tells me that the sample is from a live track of the same name by Chilean prog rock band, Los Jaivas from 1974.

This one has travelled.
Estefanía Caicedo, Totó la Momposina, Paulino Salgado - La Verdolaga
A Colombian cumbia, sampled and Indianized by Timbaland, unearthed at Mudd Up and now lies in a rolling percussive haze produced by Michel Cleis, played by Villalobos.
