The Lotus Eaters II

A 3 track techno ep (20m 2s) — released February 9th 2018 on Eaux

Rrose and Lucy need little introduction - as heads of Eaux and Stroboscopic Artefacts (respectively), their influence on the direction of techno in the last five years is undeniable. Rather than crafting a style to be imitated, they pursue an approach that welcomes unpredictable results, with the intention of stimulating uncharted areas of the mind through sound and rhythm.

The first Lotus Eaters collaboration appeared on Stroboscopic Artefacts in 2016. For their follow up on Eaux, the pair go deeper into Lucy's analog modular forest, searching for those essential elements that will yield alchemical results. "Inner Membrane" undulates with ring modulated tones that stretch like liquid metal, patiently building up dancefloor energy with only the barest of percussive elements. On the B side, "Inverted Limb" takes a similarly minimal approach, utilizing two tones, a bass drum, and hi-hats to maximum effect. The EP closes with "Seeds of Discontent" - a swirl of feedback and noise that is both soothing and unsettling, leaving us wondering what will come next…
