Ekoplekz plans new Reflekzionz LP for release on Planet Mu, high Scrabble score

Fresh off releasing two albums in 2014 (Unfidelity and Four Track Mind), Nick Edwards a.k.a. Nik Edwardz a.k.a. Ekoplekz is back with another album (and EP!) in 2015. Out May 19, it’ll be his third full-length for Planet Mu. In keeping with his desire to perplex and trouble his Scrabble opponents while dispensing with that “Z” tile he’s been sitting on for three turns, the album is called Reflekzionz. Frankly, and I know this might make me unpopular, but I think making up words in Scrabble is tantamount to cheating and is not allowed in my private weekly game. I won’t go on a rant here, but trust me when I say that I totally could.

Reflekzionz is an album that “unapologetically dwells on past experiences,” drawing in large part on Edward(s)(z)’ memories of the weirdo electronica that he was embedded in throughout the 90s. If you ask me, none of that makes it okay for him to cheat at Scrabble, but I guess it’s interesting. As with most of his previous work, Reflekzionz diverges off into several directions influence-wise, but it’s all ultimately unified under the dubbed-out production, heavy on eko (or, if you want to play under my roof, it’s “echo,” obviously). You can pre-order the album now and listen to “Seduktion” off the album here:
