Boomkat Product Review:
Erstwhile Hype Williams provocateur, Inga Copeland’s 2nd release under the Lolina moniker is a live recording of her live A/V presentation for RBMA in Paris, 2015.
In situ, she was framed by a multi-screen projection of a monopoly board, perhaps best taken as an allegory for London stereotypes as viewed from her insider-outsider position as an Estonian-Russian artist embedded in the city’s multi-textural, poly-cultural fabric, and as comment on its socio-economic merry-don’t-go-round.
This soundtrack features a handful of tracks from her Relaxin’ With Lolina (2015) release, such as Relaxx and Lolina, plus I Am Your Ambient Wife from that Hyperdub ambient compilation. As far as we know, the rest are all unreleased, and include the piercing bongs of Time In EU, used as a similarly discomfiting signifier of Britihsness as Dean Blunt did on the Babyfather album, along with some plaggy Euro techno and a roll-call of LDN road names in Chance, whilst Wheel Up My Tune is a garish take on bashment, and our favourite, The Logic trades in a sort of discordant, lysergic psych sound.
It’s prickly stuff, no easy listening.
