Guess what. Before he started making minimal techno, Ricardo Villalobos was an avid bongo drummer. This rare footage from ’93 shows the man whipping the crowd into a relative frenzy. Think about it next time you listen to some of his later tracks (where there are always some chill little drums somewhere in the background) and read Villalobos’ music manifesto here.
