CRYPTO TROPIC – Crypto Tropic
300 copies – 12″ records / digital
This eponymous corpus results from an emphasis on playful research and immediate pleasure, a desire to overstep musical boundaries. Through the combination of polyrhythms, synthesizer sounds, field recordings and ancestral music modes, Crypto Tropic takes on a fantastical, solar and ambivalent journey in the midst of an electrical wilderness.
Aspiring to a fantasized and remote horizon, the record roams through antique ruins and lost caverns, explores the traces of primeval forests; sacred places where the pagan sounds of ancient ritual music resonate.
A map to find special items in different places (made by Hugo Dezellus, Adrien Gérenton, Francois-Noé Fabre) is included in the vinyl edition.
Written and produced by Thomas Pujols and François Dumeaux.
Art direction by Pierre Torrell.
Mastering and lacquer cut by Mathieu Berthet @ MB Mastering.
