Logic1000 delivers heart-crushing tech-house with “Perfume”

Logic1000 aka the Australian-born, Berlin-based producer Samantha Poulter has revealed that she’ll be releasing a 12″ single next month, but has put the exquisite A-side, “Perfume”, online today. It’s her first new material since the release of her self-titled EP last year, and was originally premiered via Caribou’s essential mix – which gives you an idea of the kind of realm we’re in. Of “Perfume”, Poulter tells us:

“Perfume is actually a finessed version of the very first Logic track ever made. I actually lost the original session so we recreated it from scratch. It was so fun and I’m super happy with how refined it is compared to the original.”

At a perfect BPM for dancing, and with a surging bass line adding electric tension, “Perfume” is the perfect sonic foil for the vocal sample, which is a deep dive through the highs of a former relationship and the lows of its ending. “When we were together we’d never turn our backs on one another / But now that we’re separated we can’t stand one another,” the voice sings, not sugar-coating or over-romanticising the facts – while Logic1000’s production work does the heavy lifting. A song that is immediately redolent of Total Loss-era How To Dress Well, “Perfume” immediately puts Logic1000 into that rare breed of artists that can make you feel like you’re on a private dancefloor, shedding tears and sweat in an emotional euphoria.

You can watch the visualiser for “Perfume” below or listen to the full-length version on streaming platforms.

The 12″ of “Perfume” is backed by another song called “Blossom” and is coming out on September 25. You can find Logic1000 on Bandcamp, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
