A buzzmaking artist and producer hailing from Essex, England, Lapalux introduces his innovative brand of DIY electronica to The DJBooth with freshly-minted promo single Forlorn. Here, the headliner crafts an intricate, atmospheric synth soundscape to back rhymes by a somewhat unlikely collaborator. While you might expect underground emcee Busdriver‘s jittery, overcharged flows to be inimical to this record’s chill vibe, Lapalux plays off his guest brilliantly, busting out frenetic percussion and dirsorienting tape effects to match the Los Angeles emcee’s delivery before dialing down the intensity for his own ethereal chorus. Interest piqued? Forlorn isn’t part of a larger project, but you can hear more on debut full-length Nostalchic, released at the top of the month via Ninja Tune.
