iTunes Editors’ Notes

The fifth album by this electronic jam band illustrates how Lotus has transformed from a free-flowing late-night experience into a diamond-hard and precise ensemble, seeking new ways to drive its music into a more aggressive sphere. The prog-rock of "What Did I Do Wrong" fits together with several bold instrumental pieces that never lay back but scream for more, more, more. This is an album for the hard-dancing crowds that liken electronica to the survival of the fittest. The urgent swoops of "Uffi" blend nasty synthetic keyboard lines with an organic trilling organ, which moves in and out of the mix with its call to hippy times. The drums take an active role, adding a sense of tension to the headstrong riff guiding the album's first single, "Massif." "Cutinuo" has a sense of minimalism, while "Ashcon" ventures near dubstep. Build is intended to be the first of a trilogy, with the albums to follow reaching back to the group's laidback roots and into hip-hop. 

Customer Reviews

disposable

this album fits the new direction the band went in after their self titled release a couple years back.

Yes, most fans miss Germination, Nomad, Sargasso.

Personally, I wish they continued on the more rock influenced path they started with Hammerstrike. This sound is disposable to me. While it's fun to play at party's, I'm disappointed they're turning in to just that; party music. I could sit down with a pair of headphones and have very amazing experiences listening to pre 2011 Lotus. That's not happening with this album.

'Real Detroit Weekly' said it better than anyone else; "Build is a great addition to the collections of EDM lovers everywhere.”
