Espírito is the first solo EP that Violet, real name Maria Inês Borges Coutinho, has released since her first Naive solo EP, Togetherness, exploded in 2017. Across four tracks, she leaves behind any trace of her contemplative jungle and house concoction in favour of a commanding blend of left-field Detroit techno sonics and dramatic New York tribal house, evoking the work of Terrence Dixon and other Midwest experimentalists.
The EP comes with a remix from Eris Drew, who takes “Psyche” and delivers a super-satisfying complex tapestry of beats and textures.
The artwork comes from Shcuro, real name João Ervedosa.
In 2019, Violet released her debut album on San Francisco’s Dark Entries. More recently, she released Archives 2012-2020, a collection of material recorded earlier in her career. For more information on her work, check out her EDMjunkies podcast here.
