Neotropic – Map 71 – Suddenly Wow
October 26 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm
WVR present the first in a series of events in Hastings aimed at showcasing diverse line-ups of new music by artists, performers and bands operating outside of the mainstream…
Riz Maslen has been part of the electronic music scene since 1996. The story of her involvement with Future Sound of London and The Beloved at the inception of acid house is well-documented, as is her loan-funded move into production and subsequent releases on R&S, Oxygen Music Works and Ntone/Ninja Tune.
With her latest Neotropic release ‘The Absolute Elsewhere’, Riz has created an otherworldly song sequence intoning a graceful path through beguiling and disturbing territory.
Steeped in ritual and mysticism, this is music of no fixed time nor place, the sound of implausible dreams and impossible nightmares. Riz melds psychedelic folk, post-techno and vocal virtuosity into a richly personal modern mythology, quite unlike anything else out there.
