Whereas many electronic producers aim at being the most prolific in their genre, Lucy and Rrose have chosen to be the most consistently curiosity-provoking representatives of their craft. Their decision to team up as a production duo for the newest Stroboscopic Artefacts EP may have seemed inevitable given their shared responsibility for shifting techno’s focus towards the facilitation of profound psycho-acoustic effects. And yet, even those who saw this coming will still be in for a ride.
Lucy’s skill as a studio technician—displayed over his trilogy of full-length albums—has always been enhanced by his skill as a storyteller and as an artist with reverence towards myths and the pull of the unknown. This sonic personality is a perfect complement to the scientific severity of Rrose, whose project was born in 2011 with a string of releases on the now decommissioned Sandwell District label.
