What’s good Dirty Dancers?! Starting this weekend GDD™ will be teaming up with Louis La Roche to bring you an exclusive of his new three part mixtape project called Scenery. Each part will be released on the 1st of every month, starting from this Sunday, 1st May.
Scenery is no ordinary mixtape though, all featured songs are edits, remixes, ideas and originals from Louis La Roche, who told us “there will be no tracklisting, the idea is that Scenery’s a listening experience of short songs that create a journey for the listener. This is a free project, released digitally by myself, and each part will come with individual artwork.”
We took a listen to part 1 of the Scenery mixtape which opens with a surf-ey motown vibe before dipping into filter laden disco-house, more in line with what one would initially expect from a Louis La Roche mixtape. The first installment grooves through a massive cross-section of influences before the tempo dips and drops into Aim-like trip-hop, and is rounded off with an ambient tune that stradles the boundaries of techno and dubstep, in a similar vane to the musis of Scuba, 2562 and Pearson Sound. Overall, Scenery’s a really impressive insight into the versatility of LLR’s production. With the mixtape exposing an interest in a vast number of other genres, we’re seeing a side to a producer that most EDM artists don’t expose. I’m super impressed, think it’s innovative and am hopeful that this will enable other artists to bring their side-projects to light. As a blogger, I’m of the mind that music’s best shared. Stay tuned on Sunday when we’ll be on hand to dish out Part 1 of the Scenery mixtape.
