7" Vinyl Single
Low Limit - Inspirational Jumpsuit
Mr Dibiase - May The Force
LL aka Low Limit, of SF-based Lazer Sword fam has finally released a vinyl. Oh YEAH!! We have waited much too long to see this coming after listening to tons of super dope beats on his myspace. A split record in Fat City UK's Producer series part 2 was released together with LA-based MR. DIBIASE Grab a 7″ vinyl and digital downloads on Fat City website or find it elsewhere in digital stores.
LL’s Inspirational Jumpsuit is a quintessential blap of the future, deep music meditation in a Lazer Sword trademark aqua crunk style, full of great synths and infectious melody lines soaked with glitched and deconstructed beats and bleeps. It goes straight to the ‘opening track’ spot on my next Car Mix vol. XXX compilation !!! Cannot wait to hear more from LL and Lando Kal, these cruel bastards who make their fans wait so long for proper releases. Especially those of us living far far away from SF or LA without any chance (save for some scarce Euro Tour gigs) to see the combo destroying a dancefloor with their famous live sets.
Mr Dibiase’s May the Force is a bit different story. Oh yes the force is definitely with the musician here. Powerful glitchy reworking of the main theme of Star Wars. Great, low-end, 8bit synths and heavy drums, full of chip-tune bleeps, tweaks and punches plus mandatory laser sword sample (the sword not the band, mind you!). For me, one of the best remixes of the famous pop-culture theme. I will play this to my kid who currently goes through the period of absolute fascination with Luke, Anakin and Yoda to see his reaction.
Buy this 7’’ vinyl or digital release, support independent electronic musicians. For a mere US$ 1.58 for two tracks in digital format and US$ 4 for a vinyl – it’s peanuts.
ESSENTIAL PURCHASE - 9 OUT OF 10 LAZERS.
