Following on from the praise he received for his latest studio album 'Amnioverse' last year, producer Stuart Howard aka Lapalux has now returned to announce his plans for a new EP, arriving next week.
The new six-track collection 'Esrevoinma' has been written as a continuation from 'Amnioverse', is being previewed by the new single '51 Endless Pulses', and is set to be released on the 3rd July via Brainfeeder.
The producer has also announced that all profits made through Bandcamp for both this and any other of his releases will be donated to the Black Lives Matter movement and the Stephen Lawrence Trust in the UK.
Have a listen to '51 Endless Pulses' in the player and read his full statement on the release below.
As a person that is white I have been afforded great opportunities to thrive in the music industry. I was given opportunities by black and ethnically diverse people to become somebody and have a voice. It is abhorrent that racism still exists in our society and the simple fact that opportunities that have been afforded to me may not be the same for someone else purely based on the colour of their skin or racial background is absolutely disgraceful.
Today I am announcing an EP called 'Esrevoinma' there’s a couple of tracks that didn’t make the latest album alongside some alternate versions of tracks off of “Amnioverse”. Its release was planned many months ago. I don’t feel like it’s the right time to release anything in such a volatile landscape and I have personally stepped away from all social media for the past several months for my own mental health reasons but it’s a very important time in history and a time for us as a people to change and make a difference.
In light of the recent events all profits made on Bandcamp from this EP and ALL of my previous albums and EP’s on the 3rd of July will go to the various charities that are among some of the most prominent voices in the fight against racism and the fight for equal rights to people of colour. A list of charities I will be donating the money to are listed here: https://blacklivesmatter.com/partners I’ll also be donating some of the funds to the Stephen Lawrence Trust here in the UK.
I will update you all once we have the final sales figures and will post again to show where all the funds have been distributed to.
I’ll see you over at Bandcamp on 3rd July.
