Chicago producer Lasko’s single “In Orbit,” is from his next project, iru. The instrumental provides a sample of the sound that Lasko has been developing – he describes his new work as “space symphonies.” “In Orbit” is elegant and full of emotion. The track begins sparsely and delicately yet with boldness, it then builds to become more driving, a nuanced solo piano appears in the middle and conveys the vibe of suspended time, the pace resumes and it actually sounds and feels like being in orbit. It is impressively composed, communicative music.
Lasko said that the premise of his next album is based on the Japanese word iru, which means to exist as a human. “It’s my take on what it means to be human, the highs and the lows.” The first of Lasko’s “space symphonies” was released last month, “Gold Panda Reprise”, it had me very intrigued, “In Orbit” takes the journey a step further. The album will feature several interesting musicians from Chicago including Netherfriends, Beach Jesus, Stormy English, theWHOevers, Cae Jones and more.
