Computer-based production can make it difficult to create music that sounds truly alive. While a producer gains impeccable precision and the ability to compose with a multitude of sounds at the whim of a keystroke, he or she can easily lose the warmth and organic architecture that often comes naturally through live instrumentation. On his new EP release, When You’re Gone (which is available now through Brainfeeder), Lapalux unwinds this inevitable tension through a magnificent set of emotive, beat-driven, sonic environments. With a banner reading “THE ELECTRO/ORGANIC SOUND CONTINUUM” across his website’s homepage, Lapalux seems to land at various points on that continuum at once and to great effect. His fluid transition between each of the 7 pristine, down tempo atmospheres on the EP showcases some of electronic music’s finest living, breathing work. Get it here.
