Fernando Loret de Mola, also known as Floret Loret in the dance music world, drops his third EP, Prosper, a four-track album out now on Bassrush Records. Based in Lakeland, Florida, the talented producer and DJ is coming off a strong showing with his sophomore EP Secluded Garden and a memorable performance from the now legendary pre-COVID shutdown 2020 Okeechobee Music Festival.
The EP is a celebration of well-crafted melodic dance music with a dark and mysterious feel, taking inspiration from the germination process of a plant. The first track “Nu Bloom” really sets the mood for the entire album and is representative of the new direction for Floret Loret’s vision. “Melted Lavender” begins brightly with a flourish, but the drop makes way to a glitchy bassline.
The third track “Afterbloom” builds on the first track and drives home the theme of the album, rich with left-field and experimental soundscapes. “All the textures, melodies, and bouncy basses really tied everything together,” commented Floret Loret. The final song, “Abscissions,” serves as a fitting conclusion, since abscission is the natural detachment of the dying matter of a plant at the end of its life cycle. This last track does feel a little darker than the rest, as the outstanding EP comes to a close.
All in all, Floret Loret crafts another successful EP, building on his plant and garden themed releases.
