We don’t know too much about British producer Lxury, but the handful of outstanding tracks he’s released so far have us utterly intrigued. His first EP, ‘Playground’ via Greco-Roman got a sampler release over on their SoundCloud just over a week ago and we’re still unsure of how to categorise this cat.
Early releases ‘We Do’ and ‘J.A.W.S’, incredibly catchy and powerful in their own right, had us thinking that we had another Disclosure wannabe on our hands who would never escape the tag of the Lawrence Bros. Alas, the release of first single ‘Playground’ gave us a renewed sense of hope in Lxury and his truly unique tempo-varying-vocal-sample-driven house. Along comes the EP sampler and it hasn’t disappointed. Rich in percussion and pitchy vocal sample, mixed in with some acidy bass lines and sick pan pipe work – potential game changer.
Here’s to hoping we get a full feature release from the young Brit in the very near future! Stream the EP sampler below.
