Genre/Influences: IDM, ambient, electronic, cinematographic.
Background/Info: This new EP (which rather looks as a mini-album) of LPF12 (Sascha Lemon) reveals five new cuts. The German artist remains a creative artist releasing several releases a year.
Content: The new work is a perfect summary from the previous releases on, which Sascha Lemon moved from IDM towards cinematographic compositions. This work features both influences, but some passages are even mixing all influences together creating a rather elaborated format of cinematographic music. Some cuts are driven by a slow cadence.
+ + + : LPF12 moves on its never-ending exploration of electronic music, but more especially the IDM style mixed with ambient music. I still have a preference for the more sophisticated IDM, which mainly comes through at the introduction cut and later on at “Ajar” and “Debater”. We here discover the most meticulous part of the work. The tracks are more elaborated and featuring remarkable sound treatments.
– – – : I’m less into the cinematographic style and especially the final track couldn’t really convince, being a rather disappointing final for this work.
Conclusion: If you’re familiar with the work of this artist, you will not be disappointed. However I have heard more convincing work from this artist.
Best songs: “Ajar”, “Debater”.
