Discography Hits the Big Five-Oh! Five Reviews + Career Overview from Miami New Times
Interview from The Lead on Dino’s visual art

“One of the ‘no generation's’ most prolific voices in experimentalism." - Ear/Rational Music

“He has gained a cult national reputation on the strength of his music alone, which can veer from experimental noise to post-punky cold wave, from ambient textures to strangely danceable rhythms.” - Miami New Times

“Felipe can turn a gluttonous mess of industrial samples, Moog-noises, disco breaks, and satanic-style backmasking into a heroic tribute to modern life: our freeways, vacant lots, disposal bins full with discarded PC towers, stretch limos with teenagers inside, and lots of commercials-it's all there in Felipe's sound. I'm You is the honest truth. He turns our thoughts into sound."-Asphodel - Dino Felipe - I'm You (Schematic)

“Live, Felipe is Miami's G.G. Allin. There's a sense he could injure a member of the crowd or himself at any moment. This record is far removed from that onstage persona. Here we find a sincere man and a collection of bittersweet songs overflowing with emotion. ” - Jose Flores

“These are the sounds of a sonic prodigy. The original unrestrained songs of a fierce intellect that keeps on giving." - R.R.



This Heart Electric


This Heart Electric is Miami artist Ricardo Guerrero. Dino Felipe will be backing him up on drums for this tour's acoustic set.

"Once a one-man cold-wave project, the live show has softened (not as far as Guerrero's spastic, Freddie Mercury movements, which not only refuse to disappear but have molded themselves to the newer work). There's still an undercurrent of the beautifully hollow/beautifully rich sound that recalled Ian Curtis and defined his released single, but it has transformed into something resembling sweet-ish, 1950s-inspired pop, albeit fuzzy and dark, with distant, surfy guitars layered on top of heartbroken - and heartbreaking - melodies." -Monica Uszerowicz of Broward New Times

Praise for This Heart Electric’s 7” Polar on Sie Stasi records:

"Debut single by this solo project of Miami's Ricardo Guerrero makes me think this is what Carlos Giffoni has really had planned all along - classicist BEF-style electro-pop, backed with something a bit more Residential, dancey and, uh... sailor-ish." -WIRE

"This Heart Electric is Miami native Ricardo Guerrero composing/recording everything himself, but taking a more interesting approach than many bedroom recorders of the modern era. Meaning he's not reliant on the lazy echoed vocals and lo-fi fuzz many recent "artists" have floundered about in." - terminal-boredom.com

"This Heart Electric's "Polar", off the A-Side has an amazing balance of tone that is equally scarily accurate and completely sincere. It's referencing every previous era, and Ricardo pays homage (?) recreating the whole expansive mess with nothing but a tape deck. It's so off it could be a long lost relative to Ariel Pink." - 7inches.blogspot.com
