Lapalux has shared “51 Endless Pulses,” the new single from Esrevoinma which is both immediate and satisfying. Esrevoinma will be released on July 3, 2020 via Brainfeeder Records. Listen below.
Esrevoinma is an expansion and extension of his 2019 album Amnioverse (2019), further exploring the cyclical process of birth, life, death, and rebirth. The single “51 Endless Pulses” is a cyclone of modular chaos that slowly builds, then whips past, faltering, before almost collapsing on itself cinematically, showcasing Howard’s highly-textured, maximal electronica.
Alongside “51 Endless Pulses” come two brand new tracks, “Nebula” and “Unfold”. Amnioverse fans also receive a live performance recording of “Earth” and new renditions of “The Lux Quadrant” and the title track.
Lapalux acknowledges the timing of this release with the following statement:
‘As a white person I have been afforded great opportunities to thrive in the music industry. I was given opportunities by Black and ethnically diverse people to become somebody and have a voice. It is abhorrent that racism still exists in our society and the simple fact that opportunities that have been afforded to me may not be the same for someone else purely based on the colour of their skin is absolutely disgraceful.
Today I am announcing an EP called “Esrevoinma” there’s a couple of tracks that didn’t make the latest album alongside some alternate versions of tracks off of “Amnioverse”. It’s release was planned many months ago. I don’t feel like it’s the right time to release anything in such a volatile landscape and I have personally stepped away from all social media for the past several months for my own mental health reasons but it’s a very important time in history and a time for us as a people to change and make a difference.
In light of the recent events all profits made on Bandcamp from this EP and ALL of my previous albums and EP’s on the 3rd of July will go to the various charities that are among some of the most prominent voices in the fight against racism and the fight for equal rights to people of colour. A list of charities I will be donating the money to are listed here: https://blacklivesmatter.com/partners/ I’ll also be donating some of the funds to the Stephen Lawrence trust here in the UK.
I will update you all once we have the final sales figures and will post again to show where all the funds have been distributed to.
I’ll see you over at Bandcamp on 3rd July.
