Flumen by Francesca Lombardo
The Italian-born, classically trained DJ and producer Francesca Lombardo ma- kes her first appearance on Poker Flat with a double tracker entitled 'Flumen'.
Lombardo has forged a unique path for herself in underground circles, buil- ding up a formidable back catalogue of tracks and enviable performances at some of the best party locations in the world. Here, she demonstrates her ma- stery at the controls with two tracks that riff on the theme of water, and how rivers move through time and space.
'Flumen' flows hypnotically, a thick beat that provides the basis for the ominous, unpredictable melodic flourishes around the edges.
'Psycho', as the name suggests, brings things to a climax, a rushing, powerful surge of tech house that ramps up the tension via interwoven synth lines and bubbling bass pulses.
