  • XLR8R Debut’s the opening track from Binamer Lebienheureux’s ‘Naïve Misanthropy’

    Binamer Lebienheureux (LBNHRX) 'Naïve Misanthropy' (BST003)

    'Naïve Misanthropy' is the debut US release from Brussels based producer, Binamer Lebienheureux, and his first effort at a hardware only release. LBNHRX has seen two previous releases, 'Tales from the Moustache' on Belgium's, UNREZT label, and 'OPA' on London's Cleaning Tapes. 'Naïve Misanthropy' is a broken and worn down narrative of the human condition. It begs the listener to evaluate their position in society and come to terms with their irritaiton of its subsequent institutions. Each track displays it's own place in this narrative. Littered with lush melodies and off-kilter rhythms this release will inevitably toy with the listener's concept of Misanthropy as they helplessly descend into the dance floor's captivating haze.
