Featured Artist: Rico Loop

rico loop ibizaBerlin based Rico Loop is a harmonica master, looping vocalist, percussionist, beatboxer, electronic DJ, and the list could go on for a while. We came across his live set by chance, taken back by his performance while we were enjoying some Jerk chicken at Las Dalias Hippie Market in San Carlos, Ibiza.

That’s the beauty in the musical gift the island gives back to it’s visitors, when stumbling across the right place at the right time you are found in the situation that makes you think, “Is this real life?” Rico Loop redefines the meaning of the modern day musician and the ever-more popular “live set”.

As a “one-man jam” Rico Loop creates musical compositions using many different instruments and objects including bass, keyboard, and glass bottles. In the video we recorded from his set in San Carlos, Rico’s mouth emulates french vocals, english hooks, and percussive beats then loops them between each other to create rhythmic layers that weave together and flow into the fluidity of his set.
