Enrique Rodriguez is an 18 year-old producer, pianist and composer from Santiago, Chile. At such a young age, it is hard not to be amazed at the amount of talent this guy has. Lo que es is Enrique’s first soul-jazz album, released on Pennsylvania label Extra Lovely Records.

The album takes you on a moody, meditative journey through Enrique’s expansive world of soul and jazz music. The keys are beautifully arranged, and the slow-paced grooves give you time to truly appreciate the grace and maturity Enrique has as a multi-instrumentalist and producer, which is impressive considering his young age. With faint bossa-nova grooves on a track such as ‘Lo que somos’ or the ambient closer ‘Chao,’ this album is meant for a romantic night in with your significant other. Love would be the word to describe the atmosphere of this short but sweet project, and it’s definitely worth your time.”

All instruments on the EP were played by Enrique Rodriguez.

Enrique Paredes Bassi is featured on track 4 playing electric guitar and on tracks 5 & 7 playing electric bass.



Datahowler invites you aboard his spacecraft for an interstellar journey into sound. Focusing on themes of outer space and time, Datahowler’s debut solo album, Slowdrifter, is an adventure into 1950s science fiction aesthetics, updated with just the right dose of modern technology. The music explores a diverse range of sounds, paralleling the multidimensionality of space travel.

There is often a misinterpretation that producers cannot play their own instruments, however that is not the case here. Datahowler can certainly still flip a sample, but he did not want to lean on samples as a crutch. Instead he chose to play live instruments on Slowdrifter in order to properly communicate the music’s thematic elements. The idea that one could space travel and explore the unknown final frontier is a metaphor for how Datahowler chooses to explore sound and humanity.
