Lapalux – Flickering (ft. JFDR)

With the help of JFDR, the British producer has weaved another abstract dance gem.

On ‘Rotted Arp’, his first single from upcoming album ‘Ruinism’, British producer Lapalux proved that he was trying to reach for something a bit deeper and more meaningful with his new record. With the help of spoken word, philosophical meditations from Louisahhh, he weaved together abstract synth flourishes to make a non-traditional dance track where everything interacted as one to become a greater, deeper whole. With ‘Flickering’, he remains in a similar mind-set, this time getting even more spacious with his synth melodies. Jófríður Ákadóttir aka JFDR, of Icelandic electronic group Samaris, lends her vocals to the mix, challenged by Lapalux to write about anything except love. Jófríður’s ethereal voice doesn’t overpower the rest of the track, leaving acres of space for the listener to hear the minute details that pepper ‘Flickering’. Whether it’s the dark, bassy electronica, the echoing of JFDR’s voice swirling just under the melodies or the various hisses and crackles that weave in and out of the mix, there’s a new detail to be found at every turn. This is cerebral, abstract dance music for the twilight hours at its finest.
