Premiere: Lewis James – Clash

Irish imprint Rua Sound continue their journey to the cutting edge of experimental D&B with a fresh EP from Lewis James. Clash melds a host of different influences, with soft, evocative synths on the intro giving way to darker elements as the tune drops into a weighty slab of jungle-infused halftime. Skittering drums and a big bad bassline are present and correct and the arrangement eschews the traditional “intro-verse-breakdown-verse-outro” format in favour of a gradual build and then a gradual fade, something we don’t see nearly enough of in the rigid structures of modern dance music. Watch out for the EP coming March 2nd at all good stores…
