Heezen is Raül Fuentes. He's a non-musician from the city of Castello in the east of Spain. As he told me, Eno was a non-musician. Erik Satie also didn't study it. Raül extracts the technique of sampling old vinyl-records from Hip Hop and combines it with minimal synthesizer- and guitar-loops,
a lot of bizarre found-sounds, fragments of vocals and a few drops of psychedelica. there's some kind of strange Musique Concrète-atmosphere in his tracks that makes me think of late 60's Avant-Garde films and ambiguous surrealists like René Magritte, Man Ray or chief-collagist Max Ernst. His loops are like spirals of fireworks that interfere with each other to build new patterns of sounds and melody.
