Lotic is to release a new mixtape on Berlin-based label Janus this November.
'Agitations' follows Lotic’s previous mixtape ‘Damsel In Distress' that Janus debuted back in 2014.
In a statement put out together with the mixtape, Lotic said:
"Agitations was born out of the frustrations that come with touring, playing mainly festivals in Europe (which are largely populated by straight white men with narrow views on music), and feeling increasingly out of touch with club culture and with the music industry in general. Each track was crafted as a mechanism to cope with the conflicted position of becoming increasingly successful in an otherwise alienating (and often unsafe) environment. Agitations is the rebuilding and reclamation of confidence. It's a reminder of ambition, a reminder that there is great strength in having the outsider's perspective."
