PREMIERE: Lapse – Tendresse & Form Water


While it may be eternally sunny over in Los Angeles, it is currently a very rainy week in Melbourne. And I couldn’t think of a better time for a pick-me-up.

Enter: Lapse. Richard Grant is a producer from California and this is clearly reflected through his music. He’s opened for such acts like Pendulum, Dada Life and Dillon Francis. Grant titles his genre as “future” – an amalgamation of glittery trap and deep house. Dare I say it – for fear of overuse and meaninglessness – the “Australian Sound”. Think sparkles and glitch; think Sable, Cosmo’s Midnight, Carmada, Wave Racer.

Today we’re premiering two of his tracks “Tendresse” and “Form Water”, and we hope it puts you in as good a mood as it did for us.

“Tendresse” evokes undulating waves breaking lightly onto a pure white beach. It’s lusciously vibrant and feels utterly warm. The interaction between the flowing keys and complexity of the drums works beautifully, and aid in a fantastic building up and down in the track. “Form Water” demonstrates an understanding and appreciation for curating simple sounds into a work of music. Too often electronic music is the contrary – a bunch of notes but not really music.

These tracks are great pieces of production and we hope it’s just the beginning for Lapse. Eagerly welcoming more tropical vibes in the future.
