Vancouver producer and DJ Logan Sturrock, aka Florist, finds his strengths somewhere between gently coaxing listeners onto the dancefloor and lulling them into a state of steadily pulsating reflection. Sturrock can build a DJ set up to a sweaty climax too, as captured on a 2016 Boiler Room appearance and a 2017 Resident Advisor mix, but along the way he creates lots of breathing room amid warm house and disco tracks and driving techno. Florist's 2015 debut EP of original material, Phenomena, comprises club-oriented and more atmospheric versions of two tracks, "Final Bounce" and "Marine Drive," but each resulting piece strikes much the same happy medium. His March 2017 single "Dvote" prompted one reviewer to call it "the sound of an overcast summer," and I can't really imagine a better way to sum up the track's mix of bright, bubbly synths and slightly thinned-out vocal samples. Sturrock will play a DJ set here at Robinia's monthly Jams series. —Scott Gordon
