king felix (laurel halo)
jason recommends: "laurel halo resurrects king felix moniker to launch new mute sub label - the three variations on ‘spring’ presented here explore various outcomes for the source material, each more complex & rhythmic than the last; 18 minutes of ambient techno brilliance".
laurel halo lets the distant techno of her previous work sift to the forefront in a translucent haze of electronic beats & shifting sonic textures. in a similar vein to the ‘bedroom house’ of 100% silk artists (particularly ital), laurel halo’s offering for mute’s new electronic sub-label, liberation technologies, sharply carves out its own sonic palette, mixing the driving feel of the house music of her state’s largest city (detroit) with bold experimentation in tones & swathes of dreamy melody. an uplifting, driving & dramatic release. “halo continues to cement her place as one of the most exciting electronic musicians of this decade so far” – the quietus.
