Lynch Kingsley – Eden EP

7. March 2016

The low down

It’s not always easy to bash out a drum & bass belter these days.

Sure, you can fuck about with the breaks, and you can stick some pads on, add a big silly bassline and if you get the ride-loop just right you might have a roller worthy of a bit of airplay on some regional-stroke-web-based radio show.

But crafting something a little more well-considered and, dare I say it “intelligent” (shit, here we go) is not quite as easy and your average loop-n-paste business.

Which brings me to the latest EP from Lynch Kingsley. Just bumped out on INP:Digital (Inperspective Records) on Friday, this one has the care an attention of any Autonomic-style emotive synth sequence and pad-laden intro.

Not only that but is has the right amount of chop-n-paste Doc-Scott-yourself breaks to push it well into rather delectable experimental territory (which is essentially a pre-requisite for any 170bpm set I’d be doing these days).

So, check the clips, and then click-yourself over to the Bandcamp page and snap them up for the cost of an imported Curly Wurly at Disneyland.

If you just read this, and also use Facebook, be an absolute legend and give us a cheeky like!
