Today\’s special is the announcement that Belgium techno powerhouse Amelie Lens returns with her third release titled \’Higher\’ on her celebrated imprint LENSKE.
Hot on the heels of an explosive mix CD on fabric last November, her four-hour Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 in April (the longest one since 1997) as well as a hit lockdown livestream, she now delivers a hard-hitting 3-track EP featuring her usual propensity for dark sounds and haunting vocals. Due to the current circumstances, she has unfortunately had to put on hold a summer full of festival appearances at the likes of Timewarp, Awakenings, Primavera Sound, Junction 2, Kappa Future, Sonus, and an extended tour with her Exhale curated parties with her own stage at Tomorrowland and OFFSonar, to name a few.
\’Higher\’ showcases Lens’ sound and energy while we wait to dance together again.
On the A side we have the euphoric title track, in which melodic synth work and familiar vocal inflections echo into the far reaches of a cosmic dance floor. Next is ‘L’Obscurite’, which shocks with an hypnotic pulse, combining an appetite for the mystifying with sonic bleeps and booms. On the B side features an emotive sub-bass rework of ‘Higher’ by Berlin’s techno boyband FJAAK, swindling a multi-layered rave version. For the hungry ravers, this will be a fiery treat for the ears.
LENSKE Records will release \’Higher EP\’ digitally and on Vinyl on August 21st, 2020.
