Embodying Meursault for a minute, Jason Snell lends his voice to the narrator and his inner demons, casting a strange, ominous spell on the club and its crowd. Willing to explore and dig up further into the textural wealth and crucial warmth of organic sounds and synthetic treatments, Lucy made wise use of the binaural microphones technology during the vocals recording process, greatly enhancing the immersive force of his compositions to create thoughtful, dystopic narrative bubbles that stand in their own right.
The first number, Dyscamupia (Forward), happens before and right until the actual killing hence time flowing at a metronomic, heartbeat-like tempo; the second cut Dyscamupia (Pause) takes place right after the nameless mans death, when the narrator enters a kind of existential pause and a whole new flow of consciousness begins; the third sequence, Dyscamupia (Backward), plumbs the depths of the action itself as played backwards, like an equally hazed-out and dizzying reminiscence of the sad encounters mechanism. Dont let its seemingly conceptual framework fool you though, like most of his past output Dyscamupia also aims to bring dancefloors to a steady simmer, whilst maintaining Lucys ascending momentum towards an all-round genre-busting, thought-provoking apex.
