Thick bass and the tense staggering of drums are a constant companion on San Gabriel's Volfe EP for Los Angeles label Time No Place, though the meat of his latest is the incredible range of sounds that he manages to make cohere; the label says that Gabriel has taken a "globalist perspective . . . roping in elements of cumbia, moombahton and South African house" to make his warped and sometimes bizarre club music. Listening to this soundcloud reel of samples may make the experience even more disjointing, but you'll get a good sense of where Gabriel goes for his samples and just how much sound he's packed onto Volfe.
