Boomkat product review for:

king felix (laurel halo) - Spring

*Housed in die-cut jacket** Arriving to much hype and fanfare, Laurel Halo assumes the King Felix moniker to inaugurate Mute's Liberation Technologies sub-label. The 'Spring EP' clears her cache of the last few years work, rending a dreamily synthesized fusion of Motor City memes, mid-'90s UK IDM and modern hyper-swerve with a post Ambient-Techno aesthetic. Of course, that sounds pretty freaking convoluted, but this really isn't a simple sound; it is diffuse, kinetic and evocatively melodic, executed with a cool compositional skill which stands her aside from the crowd in a surreal, self-made hyperspace. The three versions of 'Spring' are subtly morphed simulations of the same elements - fluttering flutes, rippling machine pulses, wheezy synth fibrillations - manifesting as Dub-stepped swoon; 3am Motor city elegance; flickering Footwork frame rates; while the deeply contrasting 'Freak' enters carefully constructed Chamber-Ambient dimensions. This, and her reputedly "more human" LP recently announced for Hyperdub, should continue to establish King Felix/Laurel Halo as one of electronica's most vital current concerns. Highly Recommended.
