On a roll, on a roll. Bass music new and old, well mostly new but a few dazzling gems from the recent past. All in da mix + some banter + some vital party info. Enjoy!!
Sounds move with curious steps in the music of Lapalux, the solo project of Essex’s Stuart Howard. His IDM and hip-hop influenced beat collages unfold like individual short stories, their layered tones playing into your emotions. The thud of bass pulses throughout his tracks, a steady stream of heartbeats that rise in and fall reaction to the excitement, the trepidation and the moments of calm reflection set by the marriage of vocal samples and experimental beatmaking. Listened to in succession, Howard’s material is a collection of individual moods, bound into a volume that could easily be titled, What It Feels Like To Be A Human.
Episode 164 – August 18th 2011. “We made this mix for electronic explorations podcast using a blend of club tracks leaning towards the more experimental side but still keeping the dance-floor sensibility. We like to build on strange grooves and see where it takes us”
