Jlin returns with the first fruits of her new work since last years Free Fall'EP. 'Dark Lotus'is a transition between 'Dark Energy', her debut album, and her forthcoming Black Origami'full-length.
A-side 'The Return of the Blvck Rxbbit (ft. Avril Stormy Unger)'is the more traditional of the two tracks, starting off proceedings with a constantly switching rhythmic structure and a stop-start sweeping hoover stab panning between the speakers, descending bleeps and Avril's vocals cut into shapes and pushed through effects.
B-side Nyakinyua Rise'races headlong into uncharted territory, with a fierce barrage of djembe drums over pounding bass, punchy war cries and jubilant uluations that paint a tension between hot aggression and weightless ecstasy.
