Lapalux finds new album in ruins

By | Published on Friday 28 April 2017


Lapalux will release his third album, ‘Ruinism’, on 30 Jun, through Flying Lotus’s Ninja Tune imprint Brainfeeder.

“‘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”, the producer says of the title. He created the samples on the record using live instruments, then went to work on each one “until it was ‘ruined'”, before building them back into the finished tracks.

First single, ‘Rotted Arp’, featuring Louisahhh, is out now, of which he says: “It sums up the whole idea of this record – having Louisahhh’s vocals made me think of this track as a much more meaningful piece and helped me push it further and further into a developed abstract dance track”.

You can catch Lapalux live in London at Mick’s Garage on 25 May. And you can listen to ‘Rotted Arp’ here:
