Undulating waves of crystalline fragrance burst from Floret Loret’s sonic greenhouse. The multi-sensory experience of Fernando Loret de Mola’s catalog is a tribute to his careful cultivation of a sound that bathes in natural beauty but also pulls from a dark, industrial cityscape.
Cross-pollinating sound design die-hards and melodic bass acolytes seeded a rabid fan base that brought his music to the attention of Deadbeats, which released his 2019 EP, Secluded Garden. Label heads Zeds Dead then tapped Floret Loret for the collab “Reason” from their We Are Deadbeats Vol. 4 compilation, an elegant arrangement of glistening themes that dance and twirl between shimmering rays of light and ponderous darkness.
It’s been a prolific run for Loret de Mola, who has released singles on Quality Goods Records and Electric Hawk, EPs on mau5trap and Bassrush, collaborated with progressive contemporaries Siska, Silva, Low Poly, and CAPSHUN (the latter of which was handpicked by CloZee for her Gravitas comp), and landed coveted festival slots at Okeechobee and EDC. Sprouting from a bleak live show landscape, Loret de Mola landed high-profile dates with Minnesota, Chee, and a featured role at Infrasound Music Festival and Shambhala.
Tastemakers forging the next frontier in the left-field electronic space are flocking to Floret Loret’s field to bask in his creations.
