The diversity of the beats and bass scene is reflected in the Rotterdam based label Lowriders Recordings and this new EP by Know V.A., out April 7th, is a perfect example of the ever shifting and developing scene.
‘O Horizon’ is filled with blunt drum-programming, completed with threatening tone and contrasted with field recordings – making all this together into a gritty dancefloor set.
Remixes come from DJ Earl & DJ Taye, who take the drum sounds and the melody to another consciousness and American grime producer Rabit, who takes the floor filler ‘Donkey Kong’ apart and creates a spooky masculine abstraction.
