Boomkat Product Review:
Lotic follows the soundcloud dispatch of his compelling Agitations mixtape with this compartmented 8 track edition broken down for the DJs and shuffle functions.
Neatly coinciding with release of Arca's Mutant - with which Agitations shares a lot of aesthetic similarities - he proceeds the shockingly disfigured Heterocetera for Tri Angle with an equally uncompromising and head/body-twysting batch.
It's the sort of obstinately FWD music, like Autechre's, which may initially shock and repel at first glance but, if you know what you're looking for, and have a modicum of patience, you'll certainly find it between the asphyxiating arrhythmia of Trauma and the warped chromatic surfaces of Surrender.
However, to expand on the Autechre analogy; if you're looking for any sort of neck-snap hip hop groove resolution, you'll need to open your mind a bit more and re-tune your muscle memory; these grooves come from a whole other set of circumstances, clubs and bodies who do it rather "unconventionally".
If you're seeking new sonic thrills, look no further in 2015.
