Gábor Lázár. Unfold

Released by The Death Of Rave
RAVE023 - 2LP

Release Dates
Worldwide: May 11, 2018


Techno mutant Gábor Lázár morphs 2-step and warped electropes with futuristic tension and torsion on Unfold - the Hungarian artist’s first solo 2LP for The Death of Rave. The 8-track album follows a busy 2017 for Ga´bor in which he released Crisis of Representation with Shelter Press, heard his music played in numerous Aphex Twin live/DJ shows, and also toured the EU with Josh Eustis & Turk Dietrich’s Second Woman - an experience which fed directly into the sharper defined rhythms and plasmic mentasms of this album; arguably Gábor’s definitive solo release. read more...

Gábor Lázár. Unfold

The Death Of Rave - RAVE023

Techno mutant Gábor Lázár morphs 2-step and warped electropes with futuristic tension and torsion on Unfold - the Hungarian artist’s first solo 2LP for The Death of Rave. The 8-track album follows a busy 2017 for Ga´bor in which he released Crisis of Representation with Shelter Press, heard his music played in numerous Aphex Twin live/DJ shows, and also toured the EU with Josh Eustis & Turk Dietrich’s Second Woman - an experience which fed directly into the sharper defined rhythms and plasmic mentasms of this album; arguably Gábor’s definitive solo release.

Kerning classic styles with devious ballistics according to a mutant syntax reflected in the LP’s bespoke sleeve art, Gábor galvanises his signature flux of zinging mentasms and hyper rhythms with a cyber-mongrel gnash in Unfold. Drawing from the deeply affective and rude ends of South Yorkshire, Detroit and South London technous for inspiration, Gábor consolidates their mutual aspects by trimming the excess and stressing the funkiest points of syncopation with razor sharp, inventive edits. Whilst instantly recognisable as Gábor’s work, his grooves are more pronounced, and this time unusually riddled with melodic gestures that lead to moments of unexpected emotive relief.

In the contemporary field, Unfold firmly lives up to comparison with the sexy retro-futurism of Mark Fell’s Sensate Focus, the advanced playfulness of Errorsmith’s Superlative Fatigue, or the fluidly knotted syncopation of Jlin, but does so with a singular mesh of style and pattern that Gábor can patently declare his own. Heard in context of the album cover’s bespoke GL sigil designed by Dániel Kozma, Unfold becomes an ultimate gesamtkustwerk whose audio-visual play of sensual/cutting contours and elegant brutalism resonate as much with the work of his idol, Mark Fell (SND), as the ultramodernist vectors of SOPHIE, the lush technicality of Second Woman, or the ballistic proprioceptions of Jlin.
