Flore – RITUAL part 1

04/11/2014 — POLAAR-001

Flore delivers her first EP for POLAAR, both the starting point for the label and a defining moment of her RITUAL live show where she questions the visceral relationship between art and the holy throughout history.

Numen starts off the release with a fast cinematic techno inspired by the sci-fi world of French artist Moebius. It is a journey through a frantic and dissonant world guided by the protective voice of a deity speaking an unknown language.

Random is the most cerebral piece of the recording. This spine-tingling track explores the feeling of solitude with shattered glass samples, low-pitched vocals and an acid rain-like melody.

The percussive Graved On Stone closes the album with a suffocating groove coupled with hypnotizing vocals. A bouncy rhythm interrupts the black mass with a liberating energy.

With a unique blend of atemporal soundscapes and characteristic structures from techno and modern bass-music, Flore exposes the contradictory but linked feelings of alienation and freedom.

The EP has been featured by XLR8R and Numen has been playlisted in Mary Anne Hobbs ‘6 music recommends’ show.
