““I hope you like them,” says Eric Salazar of his collected works. “I hope you listen to them while you are having sexual intercourse.” There must be something in the water this month. Anyway, nothing personal, Eric, but I work in an open-plan office, and my desk is right by the window. Even in his music, it’s not always easy to tell when Eric is being serious. He talks of having run a dance label, but his first love seems to be the more filmic, instrumental synthfests of Jarre and Vangelis. The result is a jarring collision of styles, whereby crunchy drum programming and aggressive bass lines sit side-by-side with cheesy flute sounds and warm string pads. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Perhaps you need to be having sexual intercourse to appreciate it properly.”
