The Rhus Typhina EP, by Berlin-based French producer La Fraicheur, takes its name from the staghorn sumac tree. This invasive species grows in the open air spaces of Berlin’s clubs and unlicensed parties, and the hardy trees became as inextricable from La Fraicheur’s rave experience as they are from the soil in which they grow.

The title track recreates the feeling of a summer sunrise in one of those makeshift gardens. Airy, textured chords and an insistent 303 bassline underpin sweeping waves of sound, as hints of melody battle for prominence with playful bleeps. It’s a sound of joyous exhaustion, the perfect denouement after a night of revelry.

On the flip side, “Pouncing” is a menacing, yet restrained tech-house track. A droning synth pivots on a half-step interval as the throbbing kick and echoing synth lines build in intensity.

Seattle-based producer Nark delivers a remix of “Pouncing” inspired by his time visiting La Fraicheur in Berlin. They rode their bikes through the city from one warehouse dance party to the next, experiencing the juxtaposition of nature and industry. Nark’s remix starts with a driving kick and overlays flurries of percussive snaps and flitting synthesizers.
