The Florida-based producer Floret Loret is rolling with the momentum of releases this year, now with a new EP, Prosper. The enticingly complex four-track project harnesses the full force of experimental bass music.
With his classic wobbly, ethereal vibe, he’s unveiled an EP worth listening to for endless hours. Listen to Prosper by Floret Loret below, and check out our full review.
Prosper: distinctly unique, and distinctly Floret Loret
If you’ve listened to Prosper, one of the biggest overall impressions from the EP is that each track packs depth and layers rich enough to be standalone singles. Deep melodies, psychedelic frequencies, and brain-tickling basslines combine to pitch a truly unique and encapsulating project. Each track showcases the nature of experimental music by breaking open the box of bass music.
First debuting Nu Bloom on Bassrush Records earlier this summer on the Prophecy label compilation album, the producer provided some insight to his forthcoming Prosper EP. However, nothing could have accurately underscored how complex and all-encompassing this project turned out to be.
If there had to be a standout track in the project, let it be the finale Abscissions. Symbolizing the scientific process of plants shedding leaves, it’s a perfect track for the late fall season. Abscissions is a wobbly left-field stretch into trap and drum and bass, and we’re here for it. What’s more, the light melodies contrast starkly to the glitchy bassline, which describes how probably many of us feel heading into the winter season.
Zeds Dead and Deadmau5 plant opportunities for support
Prosper hasn’t been the only project from Floret Loret this year worth paying attention to. Earlier this year, he also released a collaboration with Zeds Dead on their label’s We Are Deadbeats 4 Deluxe compilation album. Combining the best in bass music for an ecstatic four minutes, Reason was an instant milestone for Floret Loret.
The boys behind PNW favorite Zeds Dead have been longtime supporters of him, too. Invited on the Deadbeats Radio podcast last year and two months ago for a guest mix, Floret Loret showcased two distinct sets, as is common for his live shows. Additionally, Floret Loret guest starred on Mau5trap’s radio show earlier this year.
Be on the lookout for more Floret Loret
If Prosper was any indication of Floret Loret’s future, things look fruitful to say the least. Any experimentation of his sound just further pollinates the garden of bass music. Ethereal, intense, and mind-bending are all adequate descriptors of his music, but who knows what else he’ll explore in upcoming projects. Listen to Prosper by Floret Loret, out now on Bassrush Records.
