Lolina - Fast Fashion (Digital)
RELEASE DATE 10/27/2021
Lolina is an electronic and digital musician, also known for her past projects as Inga Copeland.
She was a member of the band Hype Williams between 2009 and 2013, collaborating with Dean Blunt on music, videos and performances. Copeland’s first solo album “because I’m worth it was self-released in 2014.
Moving towards digital composition with her lolina project, she released a full-length video album “live in paris” in 2016, followed by “the smoke” in 2018.
Lolina’s live performances evolved through experiments with dj equipment. Using cdj players to loop, scratch and manipulate her existing recordings, she developed an improvisational cut up style exemplified on her releases “live in geneva” and “who is experimental music?” (both 2019). Lolina’s three-part radio residency aired on nts in november 2020.
'Fast Fashion' is her first album with Deathbomb Arc. "These are all annoying sounds—in a more traditional album, they might be intolerable—but when Lolina deploys them, she tweaks the subliminal cues by which discerning listeners learn to sort the “bad” sounds out from the “good.”
The absurd musical hierarchy called “taste” comes into relief here, with all the goalposts moved and all the mirrors concave." - Pitchfork 8/10
