Lapalux has announced the release of his third album, Ruinism, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint on 30th June 2017.
Continuing the exploration of hypnagogia (the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep) from his previous release Lustmore, the album came into fruition with the assistance of Marielle Tepper as Creative Director.
According to the press release, Lapalux used 100% hardware and real instruments for the first time in his career on this album. 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.
“‘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.
Listen to ‘Rotted Arp (feat. Louisahhh)’ from the upcoming album Ruinism:
Lapalux will play the following showcases at the end of May:
