Third album from Lapalux, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint.
His previous LP, Lustmore was partially inspired by the concept of hypnagogia, a suspension of consciousness occurring between wakefulness and sleep. Throughout Ruinism the British producer takes this exploration further, journeying onward to the more ominous limbo space between life and death. In this liminal space where the finite and infinite intermingle, Lapalux sounds more at home than ever.
Much of Ruinism’s inspiration was born out of a theatrical score Lapalux (aka Stuart Howard) wrote for the performance art piece Depart which was performed in an East London cemetery. The aptly named project served as genesis for a direction wrought with doom and melancholia. Ruinism is all sonic wreckage and rubble created using only hardware and real instruments. The sound simultaneously destroys and redeems itself across a tight and formidable forty-eight minutes.
“Lapalux breaks down and reshapes house and techno sounds into something entirely unpredictable on Ruinism” 8/10 – The 405
“unadulterated beauty in destruction” 8.5/10 – DJ Mag
“With Ruinism, Lapalux has succeeded in achieving something genuinely unique. one of the stand-out electronic releases of the year so far.” 8/10 – Pop Matters
