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.

There’s a certain fire in the air lately and it’s the reverberations of things new and old coming together. Friends and artists have been devoted to their work, all the work that goes behind the shimmery shield of social media, that you have no idea about. Ten years of personal perseverance and over five years of Bottom Forty perseverance, regardless of who fired us for not being mainstream enough, has helped made this release happen and it is just one of many debuts to happen this year, not just for me and Bottom Forty, but for so many of the people you know and the people that have kept you dancing, prancing, fucking, connecting and growing for years. Please, from the fragile, artistic hearts of all those in the Bottom Forty crew, come join us this Saturday at Kremwerk to celebrate the N.D.S.F. release!
