Selections: Rachiid Paralyzing

When it comes to Rachiid Paralyzing’s restless strain of club music, the devil is in the details. His recent double EP for Artificio, ‘Mega Tempo’ is a labyrinth of intricate polyrhythms and highly-textured, babbling electronics, fitted together with the kind of meticulous precision best appreciated in the earlier stages of the rave.

Based out of Barranquilla – a bustling seaport city on Colombia’s Magdalena River – the producer, DJ and sound artist has been honing his all-tabs-open sound since 2021. Early releases for Idriss D’s Memento label saw him experiment across the margins of brain dance, ambient, glitch, bass and more, before he settled on Medellín-based imprint Artificio to really test the limits of his ‘maximal dance’ sound. (Give ‘Sudor’ a listen, we dare you)

It’s no surprise Rachiid Paralyzing is also a menace behind the decks. Earlier this month, he tore up the rulebook for a bonkers bass set at El Rio Hostel, alongside Interstellar Funk, Leeon and Moritz III, shortly after repping Barranquilla at the club’s annual multi-day bonanza.

With festival season approaching, he shows no signs of slowing down. His new Bandcamp-only singles ‘Mika (Brain Mix)’ and ‘Koi Dance’ are genuinely hair-raising, crafted from an inventory of terse dembow rhythms and energetic arps with a sprinkling of staccato drum work to really scramble the senses. In his Selections, Rachiid Paralyzing spotlights releases with that same exceptional attention to detail, from breathless 2-step and techno, to otherworldly IDM, breaks and ambient.

Dive in below, and keep an eye out for a feast of new collaborations and remixes on the way.
