With a stellar year in the life of La Fleur coming to an end, the Berlin-based artist is set to close 2013 on a high, with the return to her own beloved imprint Power Plant. After landing a coveted residency with acclaimed Berlin club Watergate, and producing a chart-topping EP as her debut for the club’s inhouse label, the Feline EP brings La Fleur back to her roots: unique house music that leaves an imprint on you long after you hear it. A-side track “Kattflickan” establishes the theme, drawing on the Swedish term for ‘cat girl’ as its inspiration. It cuts a sleek figure, and is a slower, groovier, quirkier iteration of La Fleur’s signature house sound. “Kattflickan” revealing more detail with every change, and providing a colorful journey through the spectrum of La Fleur’s sound. On the B-side, the chiming bell melody of “Feline” carries it from the outset, and is the genesis of its mysterious and ethereal mood. Punchy drums and layered, meshed chords and its hazy chorus of rising vocal harmonies make it fit for any set. As delicate as it is completely assured, “Feline” is another irresistible example of La Fleur’s balance of dancefloor appeal and melodic richness.
