DRLCT is the solo project of the Swiss musician Fantin Reichler (The Kompressor Experiment, Méandre). Composed of four 10-minutes tracks, “Médée” is inspired and dedicated to Fantin’s mother, who died of cancer in 2022: “On September 5 2022, my mom died after a three-year losing battle with cancer. In order to cope with her brutal death, I started writing a lot of music, just to have a purpose, something to pour my sparse energy in” tells Fantin.

Each track illustrates an aspect of the musician’s mom’s final ordeal: “Asunder” - a delayed guitar driven slow burner - reflects on the anger and the disbelief she felt when she learned her life was over, “Un jour en Octobre” filled with nostalgia interrupted by a dark twist which represents the cancer reaching her brain, “Flow Your Tears, That Bluebird Said” - an electronica ballad representing the acceptance and the yearning for the end - and finally “Interlinked” which depicts her last painful steps towards her final rest.

The album was recorded and mixed by Ludovic Volper, mastered by Christoph Noth. Artwork by joel__rgb. Graphic designed by Tomas Defago. Logo by Fantin Reichler. Photo by Morgane Raposo.
