https://soundcloud.com/janusberlin/lotics-damsel-in-distress I'm starting to believe that Damsel in Distress, the latest offering from Berlin-based electronic music producer Lotic, has the potential to be the most compelling EP of 2014. The project spans 12 tracks of hard-as-hell, club-terrorizing beats, with a confounding but brilliant recontextualization of Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love" at the center of it all - I'm frankly in awe over how he managed to draw such raw emotion out of this freaking song. Overall, I'm digging the concept, I'm digging the sounds, and I'm definitely looking forward to what this guy does next. Hear what I'm talking about above and enjoy!
Damsel in Distress is out now via Janus.
