Electronic music in the mountains. It is in Salt Lake City, Utah,
that Jason Stevens, the sole musician of Lapsed,
patiently gave birth to "Twilight", his debut album. Twenty
five year old and working since years in a music store, Stevens
seems to have found one of the rare ways to come up with something
fresh in his music, and not copy anyone: immerse himself in numerous
hours of varied, genre-crossing music listening.
Free from pigeonholed influences and closed ears, Stevens's "Twilight"
is a new found confluent of sounds too often kept apart. Glitchy,
precise and sharp in its beats, and yet thick in its tones. Qualified
of "funktastic", "Twilight" puts the groove
back in the click, and Lapsed builds new territories made of beats
and bits with insolent talent.
Striving (and succeeding) and mix both beautiful soundscapes and
challenging your ears, Lapsed
writes poetic tracks but never falls into kitsch, moves forward
and yet is far more than joyless experimentation. Fresh and soulful,
two words that well describe this "Twilight".
13 untitled tracks and a remix by Displacer.
