Electronic vanguard Lower Spectrum shares new EP, Inverse
A new EP of originals, remixes and bonus works.
A new addition to Australian electronic musician Lower Spectrum's tableau of distinct and multi-layered electronic works comes today by way of Inverse, an EP collaging original works, and new explorations and interpretations of Lower Spectrum’s material from conceptual creators the world over. Inverse offers fans a brand new composition to wrap their ears around, by way of Atlas (Movements I & II) – the namesake of Lower Spectrum’s upcoming Australian tour, where attendees will be given a free 7-inch vinyl copy of the single as part of Cool Accident’s Vinyl Club series. Delving further into Inverse, we’re presented with remixes from producers around the globe of Lower Spectrum’s recent New Haze EP single highlight Masquerade. Out of Brooklyn, experimental producer Rioux propels Masquerade into a deep, splintering, noir-dancefloor heater. It’s over to the Netherlands next, where producer Satori goes in on the same cut with a completely different result, utilising African-inspired instrumentation to mould it into a slow-burning exploration in rhythm and harmony. Then we head home to Australia, where Melbourne producer and violinist Lucianblomkamp – Lower Spectrum’s recent national tour co-headliner - flips Decompose into a cold and decisive expedition, stamping the seething New Haze original with his provocative, engaging style.
Lower Spectrum brings Inverse to a major, menacing conclusion with bonus track Oracle - a whirlwind of warped synths, apocalyptic drums, and angelic choral strains. As with many of Lower Spectrum’s works, Oracle’s ominous presence lingers in your mind long after the EP silences:
