The first full-length release from Rizzla, Adepta marks an adjustment to their position within and without the club, an overwhelming desire to share stories that cannot be politely articulated, the chronicle of a gradual process of personal apocalypse. Holding ones breath in a room full of toxic air. The exquisite loneliness of a rural sunset. Adepta explores rage, loss and reconciliation, made during a period of rewilding and recovery.
Adeptas' rhythmic execution and tempo fluctuates wildly, hysteric and rootless club tools alongside fractures of vocal dance music. Structurally, Adepta formalizes Rizzlas practice as a DJ and remixer, drawing on a collage of samples designed to simultaneously welcome and disorient the listener, geographically and temporally. Haunted by encounters with fundamentalism and a eroticized anarchy, the 11 track LP amplifies the personal anxiety of losing ones self and culture with the exhilaration of liberatory self-immolation.
With a discography composed of both self and official releases, Rizzla continues to blend DIY aesthetics with pop-influenced productions, taking influence from both the transcendent and the horrific qualities of our times.
