Producer LLLL last year launched a new twelve month project, ‘Chains’, which sees him release a new track every first Friday of the month. Every three months, the most recent three tracks are then be compiled into an EP. Which is where we are now, January marking the three month point and the release of the first EP, ‘Phase One: Resent’.
The project kicked off in November, with the release of ‘Dance & Kill’, followed last month by ‘Loaded Gun’. Both see the producer exploring the outer reaches of his sound, pairing dark and light sounds to great effect.
Along with the EP release comes track three, ‘From The New World’, possibly the most successful of these experiments so far, and certainly the most visceral. Vocals are largely shunted aside, clipped and cut up to make way for the urgent, overdriven synth melodies.
