Heralded as one of the more interesting newcomers to the underground scene, Lucyʼs refreshing style of intuitive dub techno has found a natural home with Luke Slaterʼs Mote-Evolver label. Having come together earlier this year via Slaterʼs remix of Gmork on Lucyʼs own Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint, this EP for Mote-Evolver showcases Lucyʼs affinity with the darkly elegant and warped atmospheres.
Shrewdly crafted with the intention of creating exhilarated mayhem, “Beautiful People” is a sonic bomb with a long fuse; steadily discharging intense waves of uptight energy before exploding into life via screaming sirens and raw kick drums.
“Falling Empire” blurs the line between techno and electronica as tough, rolling beats contrast starkly against a backdrop of weaving harmonic soundscapes to create a disorientating ambiance that is simultaneously energizing and dreamlike.
“Happiness Is A Prison” is included as a digital bonus, closing out the release neatly by drawing together both functional and abstract flavors evident elsewhere on the record in a marriage of punchy rhythms, abrasive bass and off-kilter keys.
