Favorite ThisCloZee revolutionizes glitch-hop with her Revolution EP [Gravitas]

French guitarist and producer CloZee dropped a new 5-track EP, Revolution earlier this month. I must say that I very thoroughly enjoyed it. From the first track, “Anticlimax,” which has an very unique groove with wildly different percussion elements seamlessly locking in with each other, to the very minimalist final track, “The Path To Heaven.”

According to her description of the album, it is something of a reflection of her recent journeys and touring through North America and Europe. This EP is on the short side (its total run time is 23:58), however it spans many different genres (from the title track’s slow drum 'n' bass-esque break, to the minimalist, almost ambient final cut), as well as going through several samples of various percussion instruments and a lot of very nice sound design. I personally found some of the release to be reminiscent of Tipper.

The EP is available in the pay-what-you-want model from our friends at Gravitas Recordings, who have always been big supporters of Chloé Herry's work, and instrumental in promoting her brand in the US. You can catch her in the midwest this weekend, hitting Kalamazoo, WI on Friday, August 28th with Gosh Pith and Large Mouth Bass, and Milwaukee, WI on the 29th at the Miramar Theatre with her brother in glitch Freddy Todd. She also plays Great North, Infrasound Equinox, and Sonic Blossom over the next couple months.
