Lamont - 'Cut It Back' VinylLABEL: VERSION
Bristol has always been a hotbed of innovative producers within the UK's sound system and rave cultures. One of these music makers is without a doubt Lamont, whose massive hit Titanic came out on Loefah’s influential Swamp 81 imprint in 2016. With a style sitting in between classic 808-driven electro and instrumental grime, his productions are authentic dancefloor slayers: minimal and effective, yet produced with musical sophistication. Just listen to his drum programming and feel the funk. Lamont’s latest 4-track EP on Version is his second release on the label. These are certified bangers, rinsed by the likes of Loefah. All tracks are 130 bpm, sub-heavy and fun to mix – translating the darker side of early dubstep into a unique, contemporary club sound. This one from Lamont and Version is not just deadly DJ ammunition. It is also a testament to the label's longtime bonds with the UK’s cutting edge. Out on vinyl and digital.
