Lifestyle Recordings - Cat #: LFS035 Released - 18th Nov 2013
1. Conduct - Futile
2. Lockjaw - Big System
The ever-absorbing Lifestyle Recordings label continues to present strong, challenging music, music which reaches parts of your soul you probably didn’t know exist. Their new release, the imprint’s 35th, sees Conduct contribute Futile, and Lockjaw come with Big System.
The label has been rightly praised for its atmospheric
music, which has an uncanny ability to remain relevant
for the dancefloor. Showcasing the many different types of drum & bass and dubstep to the nation and the world, it is home to names like Tomek K, Dominic Ridgway, Macca, Hosta and more. Conduct are the creative geniuses behind Futile. The producers, based in South West London, very much like to let their music do the talking. They put the beats to the front of their minds, and to the front of yours.
InsideInfo “These are great! really well made, full support!”
Crissy Criss “Wicked”
Zeds Dead “Sick!”
Neonlight “Nice tunes. Futile has a place in our cd case :)”
BTK “Futile is pretty cool will be playing this one!”
The track is the exact type of future-led d&b that fits Lifestyle so perfectly, with rushy breaks leading into some epic- sounding synths and warped undertow. The main part of the track comes exploding out at you, complete with cataclysmic effects and some seriously fat bass. Ready to tear down any club, Futile is a seriously heavy track for
the end of the year.
Lockjaw emanates from Canberra, but his music transcends nationality and location. Deep, dark and resolutely original, Lockjaw is setting his sights high. The catchy, insistent opening to Big System is only the beginning, with tight kicks highlighting the engineering prowess which Lockjaw also brings to the table.
Things take a dark turning part way through, as the producer guides you through some dank underground tunnels which reek of beats, bass and bashy rhythms. Hard, punishing and uncompromising, this one is set to smash. Futile/Big System show what Lifestyle are all about, and what they are capable of. Take a trip inside the minds of Conduct and Lockjaw, and understand why so many people are talking about Lifestyle Recordings.
