Roberto Lange (Helado Negro, Epstein)
Roberto Carlos Lange is like many skilled producers schizophrenic- as far as having multiple monikers under which he produces various sounds from pastoral beat-scapes to straight forward boom bap check out productions by Helado Negro, Epstein, ROM, 1/2 of Savath y Savalas to pick up what he's putting down.
Already releasing an album earlier this year, "When Man Is Full He Falls Asleep" under his beat-oriented pseudonym Epstein, he announces plans for a second Epstein full-length before the end of 2010. On top of that, Lange is working on his second Helado Negro album for release next year and will have a collaboration with Julianna Barwick out soon too. Lange was recently commissioned by Stones Throw's Now Again imprint to contribute a mix which you can download from their site. A really fun listen the mix spans smooth 80s R&B synthesizer jams, Delta blues, southeastern Asian folk tunes, anthem piano house, obscure post-punk, and whatever the hell else he feels like putting on there.
