March 4 sees the release of Lucy’s Wordplay for Working Bees, one of the most probing and artfully constructed techno albums of the year so far.

It’s being issued by the excellent Stroboscopic Artefacts, the label of which Lucy is chief, and it’s a mightily cerebral affair, encompassing a rich array of environmental field recordings and deeply embedded, miasmic vocal samples of Le Corbusier and a UN summit speech, not to mention less explicit conceptual references to Stockhausen and David Toop’s Sinister Resonances. For the most part, Lucy – real name Luca Mortellaro – avoids a conventional 4/4 pulse, favouring freer, shifting rhythmic structures submerged in dub-wise ambience.

We’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to preview this engrossing record in its entirety, a week ahead of its release. For more information, click here.
