12" Balearic Downtempo Lena C Sprechen






Sprechen with some most interesting goods…

"4 track release of sublime musical proportions which comes courtesy of Lena C; who's Promenade E.P. transcendences the Smokey basements & subterranean dance floor dwellings we often inhabit... incorporates the musical & cultural influences this French born (but now Hebden Bridge based) DJ and music producer has experienced so far on her journey.

Shokran (from the Arabic 'Shukran' meaning 'thank you') is a breathy affair with hooky arp lines and a chest warming bass with almost playful synth lines joining in along the way. Percussion keeps up the chug factor but never derailing from its beauty.

Haku takes in the sounds of Japan with a hypnotic bass melody wrapped around soft synth stabs, soothing strings and a dream inducing percussion arrangement which when all wrapped up together is destined to be played/heard in the sun with waves crashing, breeze blowing & a mental reset taking place.

Azur closes off this trip in perfect harmony and we'd maybe even book this under the 'balearic chuggers' category (though the jury is out!). Hooky melodies with a warped vocal sample.

Each vinyl is individually hand stamped centres with a screen printed sleeve featuring artwork by Luke Martin along with an insert featuring an original image by French photographer Coralie Monnet”.
