The record, partly inspired by Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between The World And Me, is out in July.
Power is the first new music to come from the Houston-bred, Berlin-based producer since 2015. It's a follow-up to their two EPs from that year: Agitations, for Janus, and Heterocetera, also for Tri Angle. The album is "grounded by Lotic's love of Texan marching bands," the label says, and was "in part inspired by Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between The World And Me."
"It originally started as an empowerment album," says Lotic. "And then I lost my apartment. Mentally, I could only work on music once every three months or something. The question of what would be empowering—the answer to that changed so often over a two-year period. I had to figure out who I was all over again. With this record, I went back and incorporated all of my musical selves."
Listen to "Hunted."
