Flørist – 4 Letter Word
For his new EP and debut on the august Trilogy Tapes, Flørist, aka Logan Sturrock, muses on his recent relocation to Berlin in a flurry of richoetting rhythms, furrowed melodies and dubbed-out atmos, each track building a story gradually, woozily, splendidly.
Following an iconic flow of offerings to Pacific Rhythm and World Building, plus the recent introduction of new wildfire project Pavillion, Sturrock delves into ever headier realms with 4 Letter Word. Its self-titled opener is a barely contained whirlpool of intensity which mellows out into the deep sea “Sail,” a bassey breeze augmented by engineering attention from CZ Wang. “Horn” is twilight tech-house tumbler with spectral melodics and deep chords over a half time step, and we're left with some hearty "Bonus Beats" for the completist / technician.
