LaNoiraude Safari Through Unusual Layers
- Words: Praxis
- Label: Dialect
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Returning after his tribute to the sound of Detroit, the Paris Beatdown EP, Arnaud Malherbe offers up his first full-length album as LaNoiraude, Safari Through Unusual Layers. Aptly titled, the record dives through various depths of house, techno, ambient, and African grooves, while remaining emotional and deeply enchanting. "Wild Spaghetti" is built with enthralling chord progressions and deep-space synths, while "Khen Hook" delivers solid percussion and a surefire melodic hook. Providing several delicately arranged mixes and a few heavy-hitting dancefloor cuts, Safari Through Unusual Layers offers every techno more than just useful tracks for their mixes.
