Lorna Dune, real name Lorna Krier, is a classically trained pianist with an impressive CV. She's played with Philip Glass and Steve Reich, and collaborated with Missy Mazzoli in the composer's new music quintet Victoire. Over the past few years, though, she's been shifting her focus from the conservatory to the club, making unearthly electronic music you can move to. On "Reflux," a cut from her forthcoming album Transmutation, a motorik beat thuds under washes of crystalline synthesizers. Like a balloon being inflated with helium, it threatens to burst but floats instead. Brooklyn nightlife staple Bossa Nova Civic Club features the track on its new compilation, Bushwick is Melting Vol. 2, which also features Black Meteoric Star and J Slusher. It's out February 26th via Bossa Nova/Sisterjam.
"Reflux is literally a scientific technique of condensing vapors and returning them to the system from which they originated, therefore enforcing a cycle," Krier told The FADER over email. "I hope listeners get that sort of synesthetic idea from this track."
