Ricardo Donoso ~ Re_Calibrate

Re_Calibrate is the counterpart to 2018’s Calibrate, an industrial album that has aged particularly well.  The rounded geometrical shapes on the cover have been replaced by angles, but the sense of drama remains intact; if anything, it’s been amplified.  This is the

With Calibrate, Ricardo Donoso continues to offer the best of 21st-century industrial dance music.  Preserving the sci-fi and factory tinges of 80s industrial, he adds THX-volume drama and grime-tinged, off-kilter beats, resulting in a sound unique to this era. “Rendering the Ineffable” is
