The water glimmered under the afternoon sun, each ripple or wave sparkling as if a thousand diamonds lay beneath its surface. It had been a long time since she'd seen the sea, longer than she could remember. Slightly overwhelmed, she made her way to the water's edge, a calming breeze ruffling her hair as she sat down and pulled off her shoes. Cautiously she dipped her toes in, allowing the waves to lap against her ankles for a moment. Then with a smile and a quick glance over her shoulder, she held her breath and dived straight in.
Predominantly shining a light on a wealth of exciting producers coming out of his home of Australia, Lou Karsh AKA Reptant's LKR Records has played host to the likes of Jensen Interceptor, Assembler Code, Bleekman & Daze, as well as several releases from Lou himself. Now looking across the pond to Montreal, Planet Euphorique boss D. Tiffany AKA Sophie Sweetland brings her atmospheric compositions to the label. Aptly named Cruel Trance, the EP floats through hazy, sub-aquatic electronics; from deep, percussive rhythms through to IDM-tinged bleeps, immersive dub techno and broken electro.
