rRoxymore – the project of French-born, Berlin-based artist Hermione Frank – announces her new album, Perpetual Now, out November 4th on Smalltown Supersound, and shares its lead single “Fragmented Dreams.”

Armed with a disdain for pastiche and a penchant for experimentalism, rRoxymore has spent the last decade expanding the boundaries of what constitutes club music. On Perpetual Now, her sophomore album, she again displays this propensity for pushing the sonic envelope by blurring the lines between the electronic and the organic. Subverting the traditional album format, Perpetual Now is made up of four extended soundscapes, each taking the listener on a journey through tempo, texture and emotional state. Today’s “Fragmented Dreams,” with its pulsating rhythms and fractured melodies, sees the album fleetingly burst into life.

Across a steady stream of releases, rRoxymore has continually reinvented her sound, shifting from hypnotic leftfield techno to UK bass mutations, genre-eschewing dub oddities and more. She first emerged on the scene with “Wheel of Fortune,” a ten-minute epic released on Planningtorock’s Human Level label in 2012. She has since put out music regularly, dropping her acclaimed debut album Face To Phase in 2019, and more recently I Wanted More, a four-track EP that veered from downtempo ambience to lush deep house. A daring, unconventional album, Perpetual Now is everything we’ve come to expect and more from one of electronic music’s most unique producers.
