La Fleur - Exhaust - Truesoul - TRUE12103
Deepening its connection with its Swedish roots, Truesoul is excited to welcome La Fleur to the collective. The Berlin-based, Stockholm-born DJ/producer has emerged as one of the most exciting in house and techno circles in recent years. A resident of Watergate, label boss of the quality Power Plant imprint and new addition to Labyrinth parties in Ibiza, this EP follows La Fleur’s amazing 90-minute set at the Pacha party this season alongside Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg. Her strong two-track contribution to the Truesoul catalogue begins with ‘Fish Truck’, a brilliant multi-layered concoction of shuffling beats, heavy bass and a woozy synth line with a subtle nod to Chicago. A rare track that is simultaneously thought-provoking due to its complexity, yet powerful and harmonious in its execution to be a peak-time weapon. ‘Exhaust’ changes up the energy and mood deliciously, as layers of lush pads fill the soundscape and combine with a vocal from an Eckhart Tolle video where a woman asks him why we are so affected by music. With a backbone of funk-laden techno beats, it’s at once beautiful yet melancholic.
