’S.L.F.’ sees exogenous pop alchemist Aïsha Devi expand on the experiments into metaphysics and rave music found in her acclaimed 2018 album ‘DNA Feelings’. Defining a contemporary ritual practice through binaural, healing frequencies and club impact, she coalesces the sacred and the virtual, the subliminal and the cognitive in a syncretic vision.

Aïsha Devi crystalizes her approach in a mesh of trap, trance and computer music woven with sonic references in flux between metal sub-terrain and ambient dimensions. Dreampop drift and drill rhythms signify an existence in omni-realities in ‘I’m Not Always Where My Body Is’, while ‘Two Serpents’ and ‘The Uupar-Theory’ entwine trance and doom to antigravitational effect.

Media theorist and Rhythm-analyst DeForrest Brown Jr. voices a foreboding counter to Aïsha’s operatics in ’Teta 7hz (Tool)’, and ‘The Favour of Fire’ embodies the EP’s core concept in shapeshifting aesthetic and aetherave-ready sensuality. ’S.L.F.’ is an illuminated hijacking of collective hypnosis, an encoded rallying signal.
