In an industry largely dominated by males, Perrine La Fraicheur is one of those female producers who stands above most simply with her talent and perseverance alone. La Fraicheur releases her first EP of 2016 on the Friends With Benefits imprint today. The title track is a gorgeous slice of deep tropical house that shimmers with warmth. Also, Bottom Forty’s own Nark delivers a remix of the flip side which utilizes smartly placed synth percussion to add additional complexity to original’s dark and brooding vibe.
