Jardín was made up of Orlando Ramírez and Raúl Gómez, and has been a true cult band of Lima's experimental underground since they made themselves known at the end of the 1990s, when they started playing at electronic music venues as well as in the context of art performances and contemporary dance events. Maqui De Hierro, their fourth published work, defined the sonic universe of the duo, in which electronic cosmic experimentation converges with hypnotic rhythmic patterns inspired by ritual percussion music from the Amazon, using console feedback processed by pedals, drum machines, and ocarinas. Jardín's work can be related to that of other great luminaries of rhythmic repetition such as Silver Apples, Suicide, Esplendor Geométrico, or Pansonic, a sound that finds in Maqui De Hierro a singular incarnation: metallic drum machines that lead the trance between echoes and layers of reverberant sounds, in a kind of rhythmic drone dub trip. Appeared in cassette format in 2005, Maqui De Hierro collects recordings of 2002 and 2003, made during intense and unforgettable concerts, as well as recorded sessions at the duo's private haven known as Cuarto Azul, located in an industrial zone of Lima. Recorded entirely live and direct to open reel tape, Maqui De Hierro is now published for the first time in vinyl format, as part of the Essential Sounds collection, with which Buh Records discloses a series of fundamental albums of Peruvian sound experimentation.
