Release Date:04/19/2019;Notes:Lamin Fofana is an electronic producer and artist. His instrumental electronic music contrasts the reality of our world with what's beyond and explores questions of movement, migration, alienation, and belonging. He is from Sierra Leone, lived in Guinea, United States, and currently located in Berlin. "Fofana, who was born and raised in Sierra Leone and Guinea, runs the Sci-Fi & Fantasy label - home to, among other things, Lotic's first releases. His own work is part of a dialogue between techno, as it's broadly understood, and more abstracted forms. With the Another World EP, he attempts to link techno back to the real world, to bridge aesthetics with socio-economics, with ocean currents, with stale bread and dirty water. It's right there in the subtitle of the third track: '(Realist Mix)'." -Pitchfork "Fofana paired techno beats and nebulous pads to create instrumentals that seek to contrast the reality of our world with what's beyond." -The FaderLamin Fofana on Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce: "In the face of devastating violence, how are you responding? I think deeply about the moment we're in and am searching for a response that's not blatant or overt, but more-so inviting the listener to contemplate their own mindset. The music here is an expression, my response to surviving these traumatic, unpredictable times. Most of the new sounds came out of the experience of living in Berlin and traveling around Europe. 'Brâncuș i sculpting Beyoncé in gold lamé' is a line from Mike Ladd's song 'Blonde Negress' from the album Negrophilia (2005). The album was inspired by Petrine Archer-Straw's book of the same name (with the subtitle 'Avant-Garde Paris and Black Culture in the 1920s'). The book explores the Paris art world's embrace of black American and African culture - and it's co-option of black art and culture, which played heavily into Art Deco, Cubism, jazz, etc. I read the book some years back, but I love how Mike Ladd warps it, drawing a long line between Beyonce and Brancusi, whose 'Sleeping Muse' was inspired by African masks."
