Lake Haze will release his debut album, ‘Glitching Dreams’ via E-Beamz this Friday 4th October.
The Portuguese-born, Netherlands-based producer’s LP is as colourful and atmospheric as its title suggests, darting from fizzling electronics a lá Autechre and Aphex Twin into more rugged acid electro and techno corners. It can at times feel distorted, as if it’s trying to scramble your brain a bit, but delicate emotive motifs and moments are never too far away.
Take ‘Circuits_Dream’ for example. On top of a somber legato synth bed, a bouncy electro beat and sizzling, euphoric arpeggio pattern come in, making for a triumphant dancefloor mood-piece in the same vein as Bicep’s ‘Just’ or Orbital’s ‘Belfast’. Check it out below.
