Review: Last spotted on Artikal a little way back in December 2018 with the powerful "Systematic" EP, the deep trio LSN return to J:Kenzo's imprint with four more beguiling explorations. "AI" is loose, woozy and rolls with some fantastically off-grid breaks, "Spirit Dub" is a steppy odyssey waiting to crack heads while "Machine" is moody, muggy number with more loose kicks, wandering keytar leads and stacks for space for the space-bound vocals. Finally we hit the funkiest cut of the collection: "Breakin'". Dreamy, sleazy and guaranteed to take you to faraway places. Celebrate to automate.
Review: D stands for dark. D stands for dangerous. D stands for devil-may-care badness from man like Von D. We actually have no idea what D stands for in his name because we're too busy jamming to his beats. Tunes like these. Exceptional system music, forever fine-tuned, his return to Kenzo's Artikal is every bit as heavy hitting, warm and natural as you'd expect. From the grime-tinted drama of "Obstacles" to the premium rubber ball bounce of "Goat" to the subtle funk and cinematic feel of "Whatevs", Von D isn't just making tunes here. He's telling stories. D stands for deal with it.
