8 Tunes By Larry B
Club kids with an ear tuned toward London undercurrents will know Larry B as the selector who tears up the CDJ rulebook at parties like PDA and Endless (his Just Jam mix is an essential primer to his style). He's also been busy writing music, with a fine Lady Gaga remix and production mix for Fader drawing attention to his corner of SoundCloud. Here he is with his most comprehensive drop yet, giving away eight tracks via 8tunesbylarryb.tumblr.com.
Our faves are 'DNC', a flex of muscular bass bumps and murky sounds (weeping synths, sheets of silver reverb, stark percussion automations), 'Ah Del Rhard' (O More), a blown-out slow dance that revels in the deconstruction of some massive pop hooks and 'Kat = Zoe', which samples a seminal moment from EastEnders and is a club banger wrought with rebellion and angst.
