"Sometimes the club’s cacophony of sounds can be confusing; after a while, abrasive pressures and movements in basements can start to blend together. But 30 seconds into [...] Soraya Lutangu’s debut EP, you’re hooked. Delving into themes of institutionalized racism and oppression, ‘Free Lutangu’ is best listened to as a whole, as moods deftly switch from one track to another. ‘Supremacy’ heaves with rumbling bass, sirens and samples from Sister Souljah’s speech from PBS’s Listening To America series. ‘Hopelessness’ focuses on humming and hand drums for a quieter moment, and ‘Fearlings’ feat Hannah Black weaves spoken narration through wispy, haunted textures. Lutangu entwines powerful samples with huge instrumentals to make for one of the most formidable debuts club music has seen for a long time.

=========================
Bonaventure, real name Soraya Lutangu, follows up her 'Complexion' single released on NON Worldwide last year with her EP, 'FREE LUTANGU,' out on PTP in May. Described by Lutangu as having been born out of "a violent clash of sorrow and love," this EP explores themes of institutional racism and oppression - something she's experienced first hand growing up in Lausanne, Switzerland, of mixed African and European heritage. Listeners are confronted head-on by these issues with the pummeling opener, "Supremacy," acting as an ominous movie trailer narrated by samples of Sister Souljah's speech from Bill Moyer's PBS series 'Listening To America,' and in titles such as "Mulatre" and Diaspora." Closing track "Fearlings" also sees Bonaventure collaborate with artist and writer Hannah Black - who contributes on vocals - offering a first glimpse into their ANXIETINA project, a performance piece realized in music, words and textiles by Lutangu, Black and designer Ebba Fransen-Waldhor.

'FREE LUTANGU' will be released digitally on PTP in May, with the vinyl edition set for a summer release together with a remix package featuring Endgame, Ziúr, Prison Religion, Y1640, Jackie, and PTP label head Geng.
