    After first meeting Stef Smith aka Lakosa at a Birmingham warehouse rave back in 2010, the 2nd Drop camp have been keeping an eye on this burgeoning talent, especially as he’s popped music out on Kerri Chandler’s Madtech imprint among others. Co-producer Rick Grant is 1/3 of Take Records and with releases on George Fitzgerald’s ManMakeMusic label, another key talent making moves this year. And despite having never met each other (they communicate via email and bass frequencies), it seems that when they collaborate the magic happens.

    On the flip we have Tambourine, a lighter, funkier beast, which all hooks around its infectious bassline and persistent percussion, and not just tambourines, but clicks, claps and rim shots, to create a truly hypnotic track. Although much more immediate than Core, this track continues to reveal it’s hidden gems on repeat listening; soft pads here, a delicate breakdown, reclusive dub decay.

    We are very happy to welcome back Boya, last seen adorning South London Ordnance’s debut release on 2nd Drop. This very talented graphic designer, illustrator and photographer delivers a delicate, yet powerful graphic for this 12”, blending psychedelic influences with an amazingly delicate feather motif for a beautiful piece of artwork.
