LOFT is the latest artist to join the Astral Plane Recordings family and will debut on October 14 with the enigmatic Turbulent Dynamics EP. With a penchant for rhizomic drum programming, sparkling synth work and hallucinogenic sound design, Turbulent Dynamics is comprised of two totemic floor burners and three interstitial efforts, ranging from cerebral polyrhythmic techno to grotesque new age manipulations. In terms of sound alone LOFT’s entry to the APR catalogue marks something of a departure, but their unwillingness to genuflect to sonic convention means they fit right in with the ethos that SHALT, Chants and Nunu have previously set out.

"Astral Plane continue to absorb the brightest underground light with LOFT’s debut dispatch of brittle, nerve-riding rhythms and spatial awareness-baiting electronics in Turbulent Dynamics, which arrives strongly tipped to fans of Felicita, Why Be, TCF, Actress." - Boomkat

"The record asserts itself immediately, with a ferocious drum solo sent through an otherworldly effects chain. "Yes" foreshadows the percussive gymnastics and sheer intensity of the EP's heaviest tracks, "Zissou" and "Heffalump." The former has something of a PAN affect, with its cybernetic sound design and impossible drum programming. Much like the highlight "Heffalump," its rhythms have an almost mathematical density, though rich textures keep "Zissou" from feeling academic."
