Following his appearances on Of Paradise Vol. 2 and Of Paradise Vol. 3, Nuremberg based producer Lazarus, lays his emotions bare and delivers Downwards, an expansive and profound 4-track journey through breakbeat and techno.

The A-side launches with title track Downwards, a bold and razor-sharp slice of future-focused techno and subtle breakbeat ammunition. Rumbling drums are backed up by expertly assembled bursts of percussion; whilst texture, tone and rhythm shine through in equal measure.

Following this is Back One Eighty, an ever-evolving and at times, raw-boned masterclass in transformative breaks and techno. Brimming with complex percussion, blistering drum programming and luminous melodies, with each component distilled to perfection.

The B-side begins with There Is No Meaning, a formidable injection of celestial techno that crisscrosses between the club and full scale immersive live experience. Angular drums, glacial percussive elements and brooding pad explorations all fit together effortlessly to form Lazarus’ very own version of the future.

Closing out the EP is Conjunct, a graceful yet urgent voyage through the unknown. Crushing drums and a lethal bassline are supported by soaring percussion and dancing melodies that flow through the listener like hallucinogenic saline.

Downwards is a tremendous accomplishment that further cements Lazarus’ status as a hugely exciting and incredibly talented producer.
