Cassian has released the title single on his forthcoming album, Laps. The now fourth track previewing the upcoming debut album from the Australian DJ, producer, and mixing engineer continues on his road to a career-defining moment. It’s been a project five years in the making in the development of an artist who has been working in electronic music for nearly a decade.
Out via RÜFÜS DU SOL’s Rose Avenue, “Laps” is an experiment in layered melodies. While entrancing in their own right, each line is sequenced differently on top of one another in a way that creates ordered chaos. There’s so much to absorb at every turn, and it’s amazing how something so not human can elicit such a human reaction. The melodies on “Laps” together create an atmosphere of their own energy, surely enough for a future dance floor. In fact, it might make you miss that concept. “‘Laps’ is about closure, the end of a journey and the beginnings of a new one. It’s about a linear path that starts in one place and ends in a different one,” he shares.
