Big up fam’
Got a short, but much more than sweet feature for you today. I wanted to highlight the most recent release from the elusive Finnish badman – LAS (Love And Sound). Ever since I stumbled across his music, when his tune ‘Power Surge’ was featured on Black Box 018 in October of 2011, I’ve had a very strong affinity for the his sound – and that record still finds itself in my sets more often than not! An exceptional producer that cannot be pigeonholed to any stylistic output, and displays cunning musical abilites, grafting the worlds of analog and digital.
This release follows suit of transcending preconceived notions, bringing together raw hip-hop (esque) drum patterning and powerfully modern sub-movement. My favorite off this single is ‘Zaikadelic’ due to its overall unique sound, giving off an analog jungle-influenced vibe. The flip ‘Preaching’ falls into the more standard halfstep format, employing a daunting pad that swirls out of the mix intermittently, amidst a clean bongo loop and a sub-bass that will only be heard with proper frequency response in your sound. The digital bonus track – ‘Zone Of Bones’ – puts out a gritty LFO sub, with reverbed and delayed droplets that bounce around as atmospheres are interchanging, with subtlety as their ‘modus operandi’.
The release is out in stores now, so make sure to pick it up before it’s gone (if you’re a vinyl head)! I’ve included a couple links to both vinyl and digital purchases.
