New York’s DJ Python made up the term “deep reggaeton” as a joke. But on ‘Mas Amable’, a concept album drawing on the cosy experiences of friendship, he follows his love of ambient electronica and hypnotic Latin rhythms to their logical conclusion with a non-stop, evolving album that’s the dem bow equivalent of ‘E2-E4’ or ‘76:14’. Beatless, rain-soaked opener ‘Te Conocí’ bleeds into ‘Pia’, where the winding drums start. It’s the same with ‘oooophi’ and ‘Alejandro’, subtle intricacies hidden in the gentle grooves, switch ups, and repetitions. It breaks with ‘ADMSDP’, an 11-minute deep dive into subconscious currents narrated by LA Warman’s mesmerising voice. ‘Juntos’ pulls you back to the surface, via echoes of Boards of Canada, ‘mmmm’ fading out in ‘Selected Ambient Works’ bittersweetness. Next time someone tells you the album is dead, play them this.
