Lapalux announces album, “Ruinism”, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint on 30th June 2017/Hear new single+album


Lapalux will release his third album, “Ruinism”, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint on 30th June 2017. His previous long player, “Lustmore” was partially inspired by the concept of hypnagogia, a suspension of consciousness occurring between awake and sleep states. Throughout “Ruinism” the British producer takes this exploration further, journeying into the more ominous limbo between life and death. In this space where the finite and infinite intermingle, Lapalux sounds more at home than ever.

‘Ruinism’ is a made-up term I use to describe the way in which blended sound palettes and inspirations interact with one another to form this album,” he explains. Using 100% hardware and real instruments for the first time in his career, he recorded synths and drum hits and re-sampled, re-pitched, twisted and blended the sound “until it was ‘ruined’” and then salvaged it again in an attempt to make something coherent.

Lead single ‘Rotted Arp (feat. Louisahhh)’ imbues this idea more aptly than any other track on the record according to Lapalux. “It sums up the whole idea of this record… having Louisahhh’s vocals made me think of this track as a much more meaningful piece and helped me push it further and further into a developed abstract dance track”.

1. Reverence
2. Data Demon (feat. GABI)
