Reissued via Perlon, ‘Alcachofa’ was first released by Playhouse and includes some of Villalobos classics such as, ‘Dexter’, ‘Easy Lee’ and more.

In a Mixmag collection of the 50 most influential dance music albums ‘Alcachofa’ was named a “subtle brilliance of minimal electronic music.”

In 2011, Playhouse reissued the album and in 2015 Villalobos reissued ‘Easy Lee’ and ‘Dexter’ on his Sei Es Drum label.

Earlier this year, Villalobos released a two-track remix pack of Ela Minus and DJ Python’s 2022-released EP ‘♡’ (or ‘corazón’).
