PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION
AMAZING EP – L PLUS
RELEASE DATE: 24th June
Hailing from Bratislava in Slovakia, D&B producer L Plus has already
forged an enviable career as a DJ and producer. Since signing
exclusively to Technique Recordings in 2011, he’s been honing his
unique sound, with releases like his “Time Travel” EP, “Catastrophe”,
and remixes for scene luminaries like Crissy Criss and Tantrum Desire.
This style is evident in this release. The title track sets out L
Plus’s blueprint straight away, with sweeping atmospherics cut with
strong vocal hooks. The bass hits hard, but it’s the melody that
drives the tune, evoking the early days of rave while maintaining
precision-tooled production quality.
Next, “Taking Me Higher” moves even further into old skool euphoria.
The beautiful vocal and filtered strings of the intro, swooping into a
instant-classic riff, offer a perfect lighters-in-the-air moment.
After an epic drop, L Plus twists things up with another of his
trademarks, a half-speed breakdown allowing the harmonies he’s created
to shine through.
As the name suggests, “Challenger” goes harder. L Plus is a master of
atmosphere, and here he shows off this skill to build tension. His
high-end patterns blend and contort until the drop, when he throws
down a complex array of synth-work to send ravers crazy.
The last track, “Close To You”, takes us back in time again.
Mid-nineties spacey sounds are held together with the eponymous vocal
sample. Percussive stabs and building drums introduce the low-end
which sparks the track into life, which L Plus balances with his
customary melodic work.
This EP shows exactly what L Plus can do. He’s a true music producer,
not a “beat-maker”, able to manipulate melodies and vocals as easily
as he can twist up a bassline. Add this to his calling-card soaring
atmospherics and it’s clear that these tracks are equally capable of
blowing up dances and airwaves.
