Lucidflow's favourite Alex Boneti from Paris returns to the imprint, following up his last minimalistic superb ‘Les Sables Noir EP'.
Hitting archetypal Lucidflow motifs of minimal grooves and micro programming, understated is main feeling that comes to mind when listening to this four tracker.
Use of melodic elements in the title track is sparing, creating a cavernous arena for pads to swell and dub FX to reverberate in the background. The percussion is controlled with a tight leash; intricate but never busy.
Each successive track feels like forging deeper through the cave as lightness is gradually extinguished. ‘Sfalte’ hushes its kicks into a gentle path, allowing sprightly percussion to take the lead as almost imperceptibly oscillating dub chords act as the glue.
‘VanVan’ reduces further, the dub element sits in the distance as an elongated texture with only the odd snarl and lick rising to the foreground.
Offering relatively lighter experience to the dark, ‘Stereo Type’ subtly lifts its pulse. The beats and bass sway around each other as the melodic elements bounce off the walls while the reversing elements whip around a scattering of frozen chords.

Please jump on board with us and help us celebrate.
