Her Majesty's Ship Booking : > Marion (My Favorite) After a first release in 2014 that got picked up by RBMA and saw La Mverte attend the famous workshop in Tokyo, he recently returned to the studio to finalise this new EP, ‘A Game Called Tarot’, for the Her Majesty’s Ship label. For over a year, the Mverte ship has sailed gracefully between erogenous synth-wave and disco chiaroscuro and here he continues to explore a mysterious and esoteric universe that is dark and charming as he looks at the theme of divination and destiny, symbolised by the XIII card. The title track is a haunting bit of dark disco with oodles of synthesiser drama, slick drum led grooves and plenty of slap funk goodness. It’s hurried and urgent and sounds like the chase scene in a film noir. The remix comes from Alejandro Paz and is an even more dazzling affair with lots of thick synth patterns, filtered, ghoulish voices and tortured pads all making for an intense atmosphere. Then comes ‘This Wicked Game’, a nimble and dynamic affair wired up with retro electronics, shimmering synths and plenty of playful cosmic energy. Lastly, ‘The Wheel of Fortune’ is a wobbly bit of rusty disco with sinewy synths, well defined metallic drums and chilly percussion that only adds to the liveliness of the track overall. Hugely evocative and as fun for the mind as it is the feet, this is another crisp offering from La Mverte. Picture : shot by Flavien Prioreau
