Lucy and Rrose have established themselves as leading contemporary techno artists and label heads of Stroboscopic Artefacts and Eaux respectively. Their first collaboration took the form of mutual remixes. Lucy remixed Rrose, taking on modern classic “Waterfall,” while Rrose remixed Dadub for Stroboscopic Artefacts, and shortly thereafter contributed an extended EP as part of SA’s Monad series.
We're told that "the idea of working together became inevitable." Several intense sessions in Lucy’s Berlin studio followed, giving birth to a new project, starting with two EPs signed Lucy and Rrose, called The Lotus Eaters (SA) and The Lotus Eaters II (Eaux). With the Desatura album, the first release signed under the project name The Lotus Eaters, their common work is "refined further," we're told. The album sees them explore themes of physical density, emptiness, and space, creating sonic objects "which can be rotated and viewed from multiple perspectives," the label explains.
Rrose and Lucy will also form a live act which will debut at ADE (Amsterdam) 2018.
