Lotic, the project of Berlin-based Texas producer J'Kerian Morgan, evolved
via the four-song EP Fallout (2013),
the single Sankofa / Glittering (2013) and
the 27-minute mixtape Damsel in Distress (2014), that contained
virtuoso collages of noise and of samples (including wild remixes of pop hits).
The five-song instrumental EP Heterocetera (2015), that includes
material from the mixtape, blends
metallic industrial sounds and psychological disorientation.
If Slay feels like an old-fashioned collage of musique concrete,
the ticking lacerating angst of Suspension and
the dizzying cacophony that opens Heterocetera before it becomes a more conventional carillon speak to dancers in a disturbed mental state.
The inspiration seems to come from wildly disparate sources. For example,
Underneath sounds like a cross between a Bach fugue and a 19th-century carillon made in a mental asylum.
The 30-minute ten-song mixtape Agitations (2015) delivered an
even more disorienting and abrasive cauldron of
mangled melodies, dislocated beats and evil electronics.,
especially the strangled ear-splitting creatures of Carried
and the radioactive whipping of Banished.
After a few years of silence,
she returned with the single Burn A Print (2020).
