For the next release on Early Reflex we welcome Frankfurt-based producer and composer Lorica (formerly known as Avbvrn), following his debut EP on Display and a split on Destitute.

Lorica filters a surgical attention to detail and sound design through a wide-scope approach to atmosphere and the spatial qualities of music. The resulting work conjures up dramatic, vivid, and tactile sonic landscapes that recall classical forms and techniques, while drawing upon contemporary textures and approaches to rhythm and memory.
Inspired by renaissance arts and their creative process ‘Adaptive Radiation’ [EYX005] stretches further Lorica’s experimental and oblique musical approach to the club-focused context of Early Reflex. The result is a 5-track EP blending cinematic sound design with traces of dubstep, drill, dancehall, trap, and more which is going to hit the listeners both physically and emotionally!

The opener ‘Baikal Rediscovered’ is a great example of Lorica’s production style where the composer blends together orchestral and atmospheric pads with incessant grimey beats and a deep bass-line making it a suitable tool for the club.
A storm of otherworldly sounds in contrast with its trapp inspired rhythmic session protrude in ‘Ochre Skeleton’ originating a surrealistic and peculiar atmosphere.
Approaching the end of the first half of the EP there is ‘Petrified Butterfly’, a dreamy and spooky interlude where synthesised flute melodies, fast-paced percussions and effected field recordings repeat and alternate themselves continuously while evolving every time differently in a never-ending loop until every sound dissolves in empty reverberated spaces.
Entering the second half of the release, listeners get hit by the drilling kick drum and the twisting sound design of ‘Sodiumglanz’, which lead to the closure of the EP.
In ‘Breccia’ Lorica explores further his blend of cinematic effects with the pronounced attitude for the club, delivering a track characterised by pitch-shifting electronic percussions and the harmonic progression of orchestrated instruments and strings.

‘Adaptive Radiation’ is available across all platforms starting from Friday 5th of November.
