Liverpool’s Lauren Lo Sung starts 2018 with a bang by the way of the ‘Worthless’ EP on French vinyl-only label Rutilance Recordings.
A prolific talent over the last few years, Lauren Lo Sung has been flying high since her early days as a dj at her LOLiFE parties back in 2009. Her dj talent has seen her land gigs at the likes of Space Ibiza, Sankeys, Warehouse Project, Fabric and Hï Ibiza and now her production game is gaining the same adulation. Previously releasing on the likes of Deep Tech Records, House Puff and DRAFT as well as remixing tracks on the likes of Yousef’s Circus Recordings, 2018 is certainly set to be a big year for the Liverpudlian.
The ‘Worthless’ EP lands on DJ Steaw & Gunnter‘s Rutilance Recordings. The French label has previously released material from the likes of Paolo Rocco, Ortella, Janeret and the label heads themselves.
Opening with the title-track ‘Worthless’ the EP sets the desired tone from the off. Powerful kicks, snappy percussion and panning spacious vibes set the backdrop for this driven, low-slung groove that really captures the deep house sound delivered mainly by stateside producers back in the mid 90’s. Delicious stuff.
‘All Fuzzy’ again delves deep with its spacious production style that brings with it more percussion layers, maddening fx chatter and whirring synth stabs. The groove is tough and low-slung, perfect for early sets.
‘Five Tribe’ is the last original on the release. Powered by warm, rich swells and low-slung bass tones this is the stuff that House music was built on. Deeper than deep and carrying one hell of a swing, this EP is gold for those who like to really get into the groove.
Closing the EP is a remix of ‘Worthless’ from label head Gunnter. The Frenchman delivers a more stripped-back approach to the track reaching for the dub-like styling that certainly packs a punch.
Overall this EP has really excited us for what Lauren is going to bring to the table in 2018 and we will be certainly keeping a close eye out for future releases.
The ‘Worthless’ EP will land on Rutilance Recordings from January 29th, 2018.
