about

For a number of years Lapsus Records has closely followed the career of producer Gacha Bakradze and has kept in touch with an artist who previously participated on the "DEU" compilation (Lapsus Records, 2014) with the track "Blackout", under his more ambient moniker, Winter Flags. It was therefore simply a matter of time before a record collaboration materialized in the form of "Word Color", a nine-song mini-LP in which Gacha gives free rein to his most introspective electronica.

This imaginative producer from Tbilisi (Georgia) has deservedly earned plaudits throughout the European scene, becoming a mainstay of the Belgian label Apollo –a sub label of R&S Records, a fundamental label in the development of underground electronic music over the last three decades-, for whom he has released half a dozen releases to date, receiving reviews from prestigious publications including Pitchfork and Resident Advisor. Furthermore, since 2015 Gacha has combined his facet as producer with the running of his own label Transfigured Time.

"Word Color" is a cinematic arrangement of captivating melodies, rhythmic experimentation, textured landscapes and micro-vocal samples. Gacha has once again reinvented his musical ideology, bestowing it with mood defining authenticity and excitement, through superbly and dextrously programmed rhythms and harmonies. Songs like "Leaf", "Oneself" and "Stray" travel into ethereal wastelands and are ambient soundscape pieces replete with nuances and unexpected twists. "Word Color" also makes room for beats, with the low pulse of jungle rhythms in "The Prayer"; IDM and electro fusion in "Word Color"; and even the sound of hi-tech breaks in "Saphri Rocks".
