    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.
