How emotional can you get on a dance floor? Love Letters - Cast Off is part of our decades-long exploration of this question. A stunningly confident four track EP that harnesses the power of deep rave with twisted up vocals, acid lines and techniques drawn from the best of classic house topology storming propulsively into the future.
Love Letters is NY-based designer and musician Maxime Robillard whose creative process for both design and music often begins from the same consideration of function, “What is the use, what is the environment. How do I want people to move through or move to the sounds? Movement is integral to my creative process.” Robillard goes on to share the particular story behind this EP: “This EP was made after a major accident in my life. Two of the tracks were made with both arms in a cast, and in a way this can be listened to as a love letter to my connection with this kind of music, with the community I have found on the dance floor, and with particular sounds. It acts as a document of my gratitude that after the accident I am alive and well and can still enjoy the music and world that I’ve dedicated so much of myself to.”
