Ursula 1000: Voyeur

Alex Gimeno is Ursula 1000, the Brooklyn-based producer who for the last 15 years has been making some of the most festive, boogie-inducing tunes around. For many years a regular on Thievery Corporation's ESL label, Gimeno has recently stepped out with his own Insect Queen label. But the fun vibe is very much the same on his new record, Voyeur, even including contributions from old friends like Federico Aubele and Mocean Worker.

That said, fans will pick up on subtle variations on this new one, which has a decided tropical flavor which, given his time spent early in his career in Miami Beach, shouldn't surprise. To quote Gimeno himself: "There's always been a sense of time-traveling with my albums, like my first two releases where I was meshing genres as remote as exotica or mambo with modern rhythms and electronics... For Voyeur, I've been in a very tropical disco synthwave kind of mind-set, but not ignoring how I got here, so I think it's a nice glimpse on what makes me tick."
