I can’t really remember the first time I heard about Lapalux… I think it was from a remix he did of Mario’s Let Me Love You that I found while browsing Hype Machine some time ago. His combination of lush synths and energetic drums make the already sexy song absolutely irresistible. Even more amazing was that he was giving it away to his fans for free! I was hooked.
After a quick Google search I discovered that he has been producing out of Essex and was signed to Brainfeeder. His latest EP, Some Other Time, was released on the 16th of October and has since taken over my playlists to and from work. Lapalux’s flawless style of combining organic instruments and vocals with ambient effects to create such a unique soundscape is inspiring. Luckily my favorite song from the EP, Forgetting and Learning Again, is available for free on his Soundcloud. Can’t wait till the day I get to see him live.
