about

As with many labels, Berlin’s Lucidflow started as an outlet for Nadja Lind and Helmut Ebritsch’s output, both as solo artists and collaboratively as Klartraum. Over time a selection of peers have been invited into the circle, all nurtured in a climate of collaboration. This next release on Lucidflow marks a significant step, seeing the first artist album to be released that has not come from the creative zest of the label heads.

Enrico Regini, or Riccicomoto, has been hosting a weekly show on Ibiza Global Radio since 2007. Although he hails from the famed white isle, his sonic palette is highly attuned to the Lucidflow aesthetic. While a majority of the album sees that sharp and dubby club vibe worked in exemplary style, there is a thoughtful downtempo edge on show that touches on jazz, soul, funk and dub. Bisonic rather than bipolar.
The most atmospheric of these is ‘Ataraxie’, a track that was used in the film ‘Friedlich In Die Katastrophe’ [or Quietly Into Disaster], a luscious piece that takes in both orchestral and jazzy textures, suiting the widescreen nature of film perfectly. Also of note is ‘Only’, the lead up single that is already out there and available. Featuring Silvia Bollnow on vocals, it exudes smokey languid jazz. There is also a dub heavy slant to the downtempo tracks; ‘Area 51’ teams it up with scifi strings, title track ‘Porn Fiction’ weaves exotic Middle Eastern threads through the Jamaican vibes in an unexpected yet complementary fashion!, and ‘In The Mood’ hits dips back to the seventies to create an unusual soundclash against the more contemporary ambient house theme. Regini’s ability to switch it into Lucidflow’s dubprog template, ‘Shadows And Lights’ is an emphatic and trippy rumbler with a big payoff at the break, while ‘Holometabol’ walks the line between lightness and dark with sharp edged beats cutting through the muted atmosphere. ‘Natwalk Dub’ drifts into a scowling and dour mood, only to be drawn back into melancholic reflection via ‘We Feel Too Little’.

Coming initially to digital formals, there will be a full physical CD release to follow. Make sure you all share in this landmark release for Lucidflow, we’re sure you’ll be as happy as we are. Thanks to Enrico for this special album, and a special mention for Dodo, for whom this album is dedicated to. www.lucidflowrecords. com
