This EP shows an improvement in his skills. He always mixed a lot of different sounds and textures, that sometimes could sound a little weird, but this time everything works so well together. There are so many textures running through all the album, the bells, the xylophone, the birds, the vocals, the synths.. all this makes this album sound really coherent, the tunes really work one after the other.
My focus goes to Forgetting and Learning Again... my favortie tune from the album. The sweet and lovely vocals of Kerry Leatham shows the R&B influences in the tune and his position in the new electronic music scene. The EP ends with Close Call / Chop Cuts, a lovely ending tune that reveals what Lapalux is all about.
In the meantime, this friday (19) he's coming to lisbon to MusicboxLisboa and he will be showing this new ep for the first time in Europe! If you're near make sure you won't miss it!

I've heard or just read one day on Twitter that an album or something would come out one day ( I really hope so! Because they make a beautiful job together).
Here are two remixes from Rafiq Bhatia's new EP Strata. The first one is a really beautiful (but short) remix of "Sunshower" (producers shouldn't make good tunes so short!) In the second one there's no reference to the track but it's amazing as well. It's so good to hear the influences of Teebs here!
Just hope to hear more from this lovely collab really soon!
You can check more about this EP here!
(in love with the artwork)

So, the quiet finally came!!
The genius Steven Ellison, a.k.a. Flying Lotus released today his new album, "Until The Quiet Comes".
The album that everyone has been talking about! Or maybe the fans were just too excited about it! The album is extraordinary like everything he does. It flows perfectly, in the beginning you don't even notice the transition between some tunes. Since the album is full of short tracks, it actually seems that it's playing only one (big) song. It's full of dreamy and beautiful sounds, like those sweet bells, the piano, the soft and sublime guitar, the violin, the lovely vocals... but this wouldn't be a flylo album without mixing the jazzy sounds with those rough hip hop beats and synthesizers. An amazing album from an amazing producer, that includes huge collaborations with Erykah Badu, Niki Randa, Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Thundercat and more. You can/should stream the whole album here and check all the videos and info related here!
