With the "Holygrains" EP La Boum Fatale reveals three new tracks and two remixes closing the circle of his latest album "Holygram".
The loftily driving track "Purity Call", the rough "Levi & Claus" as well as the dark, pulsating "Tide" were all written during the same time as La Boum Fatale's debut album "Holygram" and are finally released altogether.
The musical alter ego of Berlin based musician and producer Antonio de Spirts has always been testimony of cooperations, of creative exchange and friction. As most parts of his album are joint works with artists, whose output de Spirt appreciates a lot, the remixes on this EP take him one step further. Heart Islands contributes a bulky-nerdy remix of La Boum Fatale's collaboration with sound artist Tellavision. The Hamburg based Deo & Z-Man did a casual and pleasantly patinated remix of a piece with British-American indie pop duo Rue Royale.
On his debut album "Holygram", La Boum Fatale shows himself more solid and self-conscious, straight-lined and rough than on the former releases on shorter formats. He finds himself set back in the 90s and seeks to find reminiscences to this weird time for the music of La Boum Fatale. Everything is possible, beginning and adventure. At this breakpoint he tames cluttered sketches, livens up bony jungle, lets East and West dance together.
On the three remix EPs accompanying the album, La Boum Fatale offers the music as a field for experimentation and is calm enough to basically impose no conditions. Thus very different artists like NGHT DRPS, 9bO, Kirrin Island, Constantijn Lange or Masaki Uchida coincide under one exciting arc of suspense.
Oh man where do I begin? Every track on this album is excellent! One of the top pleasant surprises I've ever had in musical finds. It will always be a favorite. YBN -- can't wait for your next one! tholt
