  • Summary: The debut full-length release for the Houston-born and Berlin-based electronic producer J'Kerian Morgan was inspired partly by marching bands and Ta-Nehisi Coates' "Between The World And Me."

    Everywhere, analog instruments accelerate at such incredible speeds that their tones seem at once both fully physical and fully digital; they’re undeniably both of these things and yet it’s impossible to hear them as anything but a unified whole.

    While Power conjures up one of the most hectic, impenetrable, and eclectic listening experiences of the year, it’s above all, a true rags to riches story, one that complexingly captures a struggling artist on the verge of fulfilling immense potential.

    Many of the passages in this record are stunning, with Morgan providing hooks that are simply mesmerizing.

    On Power, Lotic shows that there are no boundaries and no blueprint to their craft, both musically and conceptually.

    Lotic has pushed the envelope sonically, and compositionally, to create a brave and breathtaking view of gender in 2018 and, ultimately, what it means to be alive.

    Vacillating between synthetic noise and vulnerable vocals, Lotic turns dance music textures into abstract expressionism--the results are sometimes protest, sometimes singer-songwriter statement, sometimes sheer dystopia, but usually fascinating.

    It's a tough listen--Lotic's aural trademark, a kind of restless arrhythmia, can be exhausting--but pays off with dazzling highs such as Bulletproof, the blueprint for a reconstructed avant-pop paradigm. [Aug 2018, p.113]
